Sunday Morning Session Open Thread: NFL Edition! #ldsconf #twitterstake

I really enjoyed yesterday’s sessions.

Please join me in the comments! All are welcome.

I would invite you to register with Disqus. Otherwise, it will have to approve each individual comment…and that can be tedious for everyone.

Again, I am being joined by my former student Blake. Blake is a Yankees fan, recent law grad, from Idaho, and currently a Gospel Doctrine teacher. I very much enjoyed chatting with him yesterday.

President Eyring:

There is but one plan of happiness. That plan is to follow all the commandments of God.

When sins are forgiving, HE can remember them no more.

Success in marriage will require the presence and guidance of the Holy Ghost.

Elder Dallin H. Oaks:

The 10 Commandments

Love the Lord is the greatest commandment.

We offend God when we serve other gods.

Our theology starts with “Heavenly Parents.”

The law of the state does not trump God’s law.

Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson (General YM President):

New morality is just the old immorality.

As you are converted, you will have a desire and conviction to share with others.

Elder Richard Maynes:

Building our spiritual endurance.

Elder Richard G. Scott:

The Atonement brings personal strength to the children of God.

There are long-term and short-term consequences of sin.

We need to build fortifications against the memory of our past guilt.

President Monson:

President Monson remembered his wife Frances who passed away shortly after the last General Conference.

We will pull through challenges if we make the Gospel of Jesus Christ the center of our lives.

Mormon Tabernacle finishes things up with “We Thank Thee O’ God For a Prophet.”

  1. This is a pretty amazing promise from President Cannon. He has prepared a way for each of us to achieve salvation. He has also provided angels to keep watch over us.

  2. To be honest, like Elder Christopherson’s talk, I will hold off on comment on specifics of this talk. To be honest, I think there are a range of religious AND secular reasons to worry about some of these trends.

    • There is danger in focusing only on the gay marriage aspect. There also needs to be a discussion of the nature of homosexuality. I can see how many people will use this talk to justify their decision to treat LGBT individuals improperly.

  3. This principle of exercising faith before living a commandment was a major struggle for those I taught on my mission.

  4. I really do think the new youth teaching program is a step above the previous plan. Allows youth to learn the gospel in their own way.

  5. Sidenote: Elder Scott was one of the three Apostles I met on my mission. I remember that he was very short.

  6. The story of the people of Ammon goes to show how covenants may or may not extend to future generations.

  7. Elder Scott’s talk proving once again that every word of the Book of Mormon is important, even the war chapters.
