"Look above and beyond the negative, the critical, the cynical, the doubtful, to the positive"

BYU 1974, President Gordon B. Hinckley

Joseph Fielding Smith on the Importance of Learning

"The Lord hates inexcusable ignorance concerning the life-giving principles of the gospel, which, from time to time, since the beginning, he has declared to a perverse people through his chosen prophets, that all who would repent and receive the truth might be instructed in all things which are essential to their education in heavenly things." The Lord is greatly pleased with His children when they devote their time and energies in study and reflection, with the desire to gain a perfect knowledge of these great principles and commandments, for without a knowledge of them, and obedience to them, we cannot be saved. "The promise has been made to all those who will receive the light of truth and through their research and obedience endeavor to acquaint themselves with the gospel, that they shall receive line upon line, precept by precept, here a little and there a little, until the fulness of truth shall be their portion; even the hidden mysteries of the kingdom shall be made known unto them; 'For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 'All these are heirs of salvation, and they be crowned with glory, immortality, and eternal life, as sons and daughters of God, with an exaltation in his celestial kingdom." (Joseph Fielding Smith, _Doctrine of Salvation_1:303)

Gems from the Teachings of Church Leaders

As President Hinckley recently said, "[We are] not argumentative. We do not debate.
We, in effect, simply say to others, 'Bring all the good that you have and let us see if we can add to it'"
(The BYU Experience," BYU devotional address, 4 Nov. 1997)
