I agree with Joseph Tenney. I believe the Lord expects us to Stand for Truth and Righteousness in regards to the obvious evils of the world today. We just need to do it in a nonagressive way, and be respectful so as not to lose the Spirit.
Thank you Joseph Tenney for pointing out those truths to live by. Here's another:
Judge truth from error (right from wrong). . . but do not condemn people (which would claim the atonement does not apply to them - which is an evil thing to claim).
Superb observations. Dr. G is a master of relationships, and a font of wisdom re: gospel principles.
Great article, we need more cooperation, but one factor ignored in this article is that when the wickedness of individuals increase, it is not wrong to point out the error of their ways, especially when it affects us personally. The Book of Mormon is full of instances when it was OK to defend ourselves or to stand up for right and virtue. But those that are offended then cry that you are being "judgemental" or combative, etc. The wicked always "taketh the truth to be hard" and will cry the victim when they are perpetrating the wrongful acts. Abortion, human trafficking, drugs, illegal immigration will always be wrong and against the law. Standing for them will always bring the wrath of the adversary and those who are in the wrong. We just have to move forward and not return in kind.
Absolutely wonderful, insightful article!
