Title: Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson
  • Becoming Christlike is a lifetime pursuit and
    very often involves growth and change that is
    slow, almost imperceptible. The scriptures record
    remarkable accounts of men whose lives changed
    dramatically, in an instant. Though they are real
    and powerful, they are the exception more than
    the rule. For every Paul, for every Enos, and for
    every King Lamoni, there are hundreds and
    thousands of people who find the process of
    repentance much more subtle, much more
    imperceptible. They live quiet lives of
    goodness, service, and commitment.
  • (A Mighty Change of Heart, Ensign, October 1989,
    p. 2-5)

Ezra Taft Benson
  • The Lord works from the inside out. The world
    works from the outside in. The world would take
    people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums
    out of people, and then they take themselves out
    of the slums. The world would mold men by
    changing their environment. Christ changes men,
    who then change their environment. The world
    would shape human behavior, but Christ can change
    human nature.
  • (A Witness and a Warning, p. 64)

Boyd K. Packer
  • I am convinced that two of the major mistakes
    are to teach too much about the subject and to
    teach it at the wrong time... 
  • I know of more than one instance in which a young
    person has been led to experiment in gross and
    perverted immorality because of a suggestion that
    originated with his bishop in an interview.
  • Those who teach, and I refer to leaders, to
    teachers, and to parents, should keep in mind
    this message. Picture a father and mother leaving
    home for a period of time. Just as they go out
    the door they say to their little children who
    are to be left untended during their absence,
    Now children, be good. Whatever you do while we
    are gone, do not take the footstool into the
    pantry, and do not climb to the fourth shelf and
    move the cracker box and reach back and get the
    sack of beans and take a bean and put it up you
    nose, will you?
  • Some of us are just that foolish. The humor of
    the illustration is wry humor when you think of
    the first thing that happens after the parents
    are gone. Surely we can be wiser than that. Young
    people should know from the very beginning that
    chastity is a sacred subject.
