“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ having a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all men feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end…” 2 Nephi 31:20
Unfortunately, many members of the church literally FEAST on what the media has to say in order to influence their political decisions. We’re constantly bombarded and thus it’s quite easy to get caught up in it all. But remember, President Hinckley made perfectly clear that these are spiritual decisions we must make, not political ones. In fact, given the foundation of our country and its importance to the Gospel, all of our decisions can be and should be viewed as spiritual ones. And the best place to get help with such decisions is the scriptures, not the newspaper or CNN. Obviously we don’t get “bombarded” by the Spirit. We have to be proactive to receive those kinds of answers. So we must be diligent in receiving them.
I firmly believe that this nation is at a spiritual crisis primarily because we have not been proactive in our preservation of freedom. Let us now use our freedom of religion in order to help preserve freedom for all.
