Title: Ezra Taft Benson


1
Ezra Taft Benson
  • I have been reading again the marvelous account
    in the Book of Mormon of the visit of the
    resurrected Savior to the American continent. I
    have been deeply impressed with the beauty and
    power of this scriptural account in 3 Nephi, and
    with its great value for our time and our
    generation.
  • The record of the Nephite history just prior to
    the Saviors visit reveals many parallels to our
    own day as we anticipate the Saviors second
    coming.
  • Pride became commonplace. Dishonesty and
    immorality were widespread. Secret combinations
    flourished.The people began to be distinguished
    by ranks, according to their riches and their
    chances for learning.even as today.
  • (A Witness and a Warning, pp. 37-38)

Nephite Calendar Systems
  • 600 BC - 92 BC (Mosiah 2944-47) (Alma 11)
    From time Lehi left Jerusalem.
  • 92 BC - 9 AD (3 Nephi 25-7) During the time of
    the reign of the Judges.
  • From time the sign was given. (3 Nephi 28 End
    of Record)
  • Note The sign was given at Jesus birth.
    However, they didnt start using it as a point of
    reference until in 9 AD.

Ezra Taft Benson
  • For years we have been counseled to have on hand
    a years supply of food. Yet there are some today
    who will not start storing until the Church comes
    out with a detailed monthly home storage program.
    Now, suppose that never happens. We still cannot
    say we have not been warned. Should the Lord
    decide at this time to cleanse the Churchand the
    need for that cleansing seems to be increasinga
    famine in this land of one years duration could
    wipe out a large percentage of slothful members,
    including some ward and stake officers. Yet we
    cannot say we have not been warned. You do not
    need to go into debt to obtain a years supply.
    Plan to build up your food supply just as you
    would a savings account. Save a little for
    storage each paycheck....We urge you to do this
    prayerfully and do it now. I speak with a feeling
    of great urgency....The revelation to produce and
    store food may be as essential to our temporal
    welfare today as boarding the ark was to the
    people in the days of Noah.

  • The two groups who seem to have the greatest
    difficulty with pride are the learned and the
    rich.
  • (Conference Report, Apr. 1986, p. 6)

Boyd K. Packer
  • You who find schooling easily available must
    remember this God is not respecter of persons
    But in every nation he that feareth him, and
    worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
    (Acts 1034-35 see also Moro. 812 DC 135
    3816). The Lord does not, and the Church
    cannot, admit to favoritism toward those who are
    able to obtain professional degrees as compared
    to those who seek training in a practical field
    or those who have little or no schooling at all.
