Title: This is a review of the slides we used while discussing . . . Pillars of Consecration D


1
This is a review of the slides we used while
discussing . . . Pillars of Consecration
DC 38
2
The Establishment of Zion
3
We ought to have the building up of Zion as
our greatest object (Teachings of the Prophet
Joseph Smith, Section Four 183942, p.161).
4
When we awake and are born of God, a new day
will break and Zion will be Redeemed (President
Ezra Taft Benson, Ensign, Nov. 1985, 5).
5
Pillars of Consecration Section 38
6
These comments are for the essentially
honorable members who are skimming over the
surface instead of deepening their discipleship
and who are casually engaged rather than
anxiously engaged (DC 7675 5827). Though
nominal in their participation, their
reservations and hesitations inevitably show
through. They may even pass through our holy
temples, but, alas, they do not let the holy
temples pass through them (Neal A. Maxwell,
Ensign, Nov. 1992, 65).
7
The longest journey that any of us will ever
take the journey from my head to my heart
(Marie K. Hafen, Ricks College Devotional,
October 3, 2000).
8
Pillars of Consecration
  • all flesh is mine (v. 16) I am owned by God
    - see DC 192

9
Pride does not look up to God and care about
what is right. It looks sideways to man and
argues who is right. Pride is manifest in the
spirit of contention. Was it not through pride
that the devil became the devil? Christ wanted to
serve. The devil wanted to rule. Christ wanted to
bring men to where He was. The devil wanted to be
above men. Christ removed self as the force in
His perfect life. It was not my will, but thine
be done. Pride is characterized by "What do I
want out of life?" rather than by "What would God
have me do with my life?" It is self-will as
opposed to God's will. It is the fear of man over
the fear of God (Ezra Taft Benson, Ensign, April,
1989, p. 4).
10
Pride is the great stumbling block to Zion. I
repeat Pride is the great stumbling block to
Zion (President Ezra Taft Benson, Saturday
Morning Session, CR, 1 April, 1989).
11
ConceitPride is the strangest disease known
to man. It makes every one else sick, but he who
has it. -Unknown
12
Pillars of Consecration
  • all flesh is mine (v. 16)
  • I have made the earth rich (v. 17) DC 10417

13
I recently learned an interesting fact If a
man owns a million dollars worth of gold at
todays prices, he possesses approximately one
27-billionth of all the gold that is present in
the earths thin crust alone (Spencer W. Kimball,
The False Gods We Worship, Ensign, June 1976, p.
5).
14
Pillars of Consecration
  • all flesh is mine (v. 16)
  • I have made the earth rich (v. 17)
  • esteem his brother as self(v. 24) DC 8219

15
The first year that I came into this
valley I had not flour enough to last my family
until harvest . . . and persons were coming to my
house every day for bread. I had the blues about
one day I went down to the old fort, and by the
time I got back to my house I was completely
cured. I said to my wife, Do not let a person
come here for food and go away empty handed, for
if you do we shall suffer before harvest but if
you give to every individual that comes we shall
have enough to last us through. I intend to keep
doing so, that my bread may hold out, for if I do
not I shall come short. Do you believe that
principle? I know it is true, because I have
proven it so many times (Brigham Young, in
Journal of Discourses, 3332-33).
16
Pillars of Consecration
  • all flesh is mine (v. 16)
  • I have made the earth rich (v. 17)
  • esteem his brother as self(v. 24)
  • riches of the earth are mine (v. 39) see
    Deut. 810-20

17
The Lord has given to me all I possess I
have nothing in reality, not a single dime of it
is mine. You may ask, 'Do you feel as you say?'
Yes, I actually do. The coat I have on my back is
not mine, and never was the Lord put it in my
possession honorably, and I wear it but if he
wishes for it, and all there is under it, he is
welcome to the whole. I do not own a house, or a
single farm of land, a horse, mule, carriage, or
wagon, or wife, nor child but what the Lord gave
me, and if he wants them, he can take them at his
pleasure, whether he speaks for them, or takes
them without speaking (Brigham Young, JD 2307).
18
When my Bishop came to value my property,
he wanted to know what he should take my tithing
in. I told him to take anything I had, for I did
not set my heart upon any one thing my horses,
cows, hogs, or any other thing he might take my
heart is set upon the work of my God, upon the
public good of his great Kingdom (Brigham Young,
JD 1376).
19
Pillars of Consecration
  • all flesh is mine (v. 16)
  • I have made the earth rich (v. 17)
  • esteem his brother as self(v. 24)
  • riches of the earth are mine (v. 39)
  • labor of his hands (v. 40)

20
Neither in public relief nor in private
charity is any duty, restraint, or inhibition
placed upon the needy recipient of help. He may
take and take, and grasp for more. It is quite
otherwise in the Church. The Lord has said to the
unworthy poor Wo unto you poor men, whose
hearts are not broken, whose spirits are not
contrite, and whose bellies are not satisfied,
and whose hands are not stayed from laying hold
upon other mens goods, whose eyes are full of
greediness, and who will not labor with your own
hands! (DC 5617.) (Marion G. Romney, Ensign,
Nov. 1977, 81).
