"...when trials and challenges come our way, we are often told to simply 'hang in there.' Let me be clear: to 'hang in there' is not a principle of the gospel. Enduring to the end means constantly coming unto Christ and being perfected in Him." Stay by the Tree - By Elder Kevin W. Pearson
Elder Haynie teaches that we must be clean to return to live with our Heavenly Father, and that the only way to become clean is through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. The plan of salvation included a Savior who could help us become clean through faith in Him and repentance of our sins.
Place No More for the Enemy of My Soul - Jeffrey R. Holland "“Why is there so much moral decay around us, and why are so many individuals and families, including some in the Church, falling victim to it, being tragically scarred by it?” But, of course, I knew at least part of the answer to my own question. Most days we all find ourselves assaulted by immoral messages of some kind flooding in on us from every angle."
