Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

Our multitudes are silenced by the guilty feelings of a few

Christ speaks of those that love a family member more than him. He says such people are not worthy of him.

In these days our multitudes are silenced because to speak out would hurt some friend or family member. Imagine what would have happened if Lehi had been afraid to speak out because it would offend Laman and Lemuel. Or if Alma had been hesitant to speak out because of Corianton.

We must decide our love for the Lord and his truth is greater than our misplaced concern for the guilty feelings of friends and family. We are losing our country and society because we are more worried about offending our neighbor and our family member than we are worried about offending our God.

We must do better. We must decide that truth matters more to us than the guilty feelings of transgressors and apostates.
