2015 October General Conference

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is led by a prophet of God. The current president and prophet is President Thomas S. Monson.  Every April and October the prophet and other apostles speak at General Conference.  Here is some of what the prophet of God had to say:

"You (teenagers) may be tempted to lower your standards and to follow the crowd in order to be accepted by those you desire to have as friends. Please be strong, and be alert to anything that would rob you of the blessings of eternity. The choices you make here and now are forever important."

"May we realize that our greatest happiness in this life will come as we follow God’s commandments and obey His laws! I love the words found in (Isaiah 32:17) “The work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.” Such peace, such assurance can come only through righteousness."

"if the commandments had been written by man, then to change them by inclination or legislation or by any other means would be the prerogative of man. The commandments, however, were God-given. Using our agency, we can set them aside. We cannot, however, change them, just as we cannot change the consequences which come from disobeying and breaking them"

"As we prove to be examples in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, and in purity, we will qualify to be lights to the world."

"Those things which make us different from most of the world also provide us with that light and that spirit which will shine in an increasingly dark world"

I really loved General Conference. I love to hear the General Authorities speak. But I pay very close attention when the Lord's mouthpiece on the earth speaks. He pretty much asked us to be good. Be good examples. Live the gospel. I wonder how many will follow his advise because it seems too easy? I support the Lord's prophet. I will be the best I can be.
