The righteous are clear about who they will serve

"We live today in a world so full of choices," said Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve at the October 1993 general conference. "Television offers both the good and the bad. Bookstores are full of publications offering the right and the wrong. Very few movies are worthy of seeing because of the profanity, violence, and immorality that fill them. Advertising is full of enticements to lead us to violate the Word of Wisdom. Some music, with its monotonous rhythms, beats illicit thoughts into our heads. . . .

"To offset the worldly messages that entice us to choose the wrong, the Lord has blessed us with symbols of purity to keep us on the right course to choose the right. . . ."We are at a time in the world's history when Satan is marshaling all his forces to lead the people off the strait and narrow path. Fortunately, most members of the Church are clear about who it is that they will serve. Like Joshua of old, they proclaim, "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.' " (Josh. 24:15.)
