Quorums of the Seventy

The spiritual joy that will come in the celestial kingdom can come here and now by living the commandments.

"My fear is that too many of us are not fully committed to living all the commandments. These saints are not willing to leave the world completely behind. They are holding back."

No man can serve two masters.

"The Savior taught: 'Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under the foot of men.'

"How do we lose our savour? One way is when we stop being different from the world. Many in the church are drifting in the direction of the world and looking and becoming more and more like the world. We must stop drifting."

Latter-day Saints must be prepared to take a stand in defense of what is right and against what is wrong.

Hold to the Lord's standards in everyday life, whether at school, at work or in the community.

"The only true security in life is living the commandments."

"What a great thing it is to decide once and for all, early in life, what you will do and what you will not do in regards to honesty, modesty, chastity, the Word of Wisdom, and temple marriage."
