The Book of Mormon is the Word of God
» 18.2 MiB - 5,682 hits
Ezra Taft Benson said: "...we have not been using the Book of Mormon as we should. Our homes are not as strong unless we are using it to bring our children to Christ.

Beware of Pride - Ezra Taft Benson
» 9.1 MiB - 6,377 hits
(Read in LDS General Conference by Gordon B. Hinckley). Pride results in secret combinations which are built up to get power, gain, and glory of the world... This fruit of the sin of pride, namely secret combinations, brought down both the Jaredite and the Nephite civilizations and has been and will yet be the cause of the fall of many nations... Another face of pride is contention. Arguments, fights, unrighteous dominion...
I Testify - Ezra Taft Benson

I testify that wickedness is rapidly expanding in every segment of our society... Secret combinations lusting for power, gain, and glory are flourishing.

I testify that as the forces of evil increase under LuciferÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s leadership and as the forces of good increase under the leadership of Jesus Christ, there will be...

Jesus Christ - Gifts and Expectations
» 12.5 MiB - 3,999 hits
by Ezra Taft Benson. "God has to work through mortals of varying degrees of spiritual progress. Sometimes he temporarily grants to men their unwise requests in order that they might learn from their own sad experiences. Some refer to this as the "Samuel principle." The children of Israel wanted a king like all the other nations. The prophet Samuel was displeased and prayed to the Lord about it. The Lord responded by saying, Samuel, "they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them." The Lord told Samuel to warn the people of the consequences if they had a king."

Conspiracy Fact - Book of Mormon
» 1.8 MiB - 5,070 hits
by Ezra Taft Benson. "Now undoubtedly Moroni could have pointed out many factors that led to the destruction of the people, but notice how he singled out the secret combinations, just as the Church today could point out many threats to peace, prosperity, and the spread of God's work, but it has singled out the greatest threat as the godless conspiracy. There is no conspiracy theory in the Book of Mormon "it is a conspiracy fact."
A Race Against Time
» 19.7 MiB - 4,153 hits
by Ezra Taft Benson. "The scriptures also tell about our inspired Constitution. If you accept these scriptures, you will automatically reject the counsel of men who depreciate our Constitution. If you use the scriptures as a guide, you know what the Book of Mormon has to say regarding murderous conspiracies in the last day and how we are to awake to our awful situation today (see Ether 8:18-25). I find certain elements in the Church do not like to read the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants so much - they have too much to say about freedom."
