Resources found in the updated Topics and Questions in the Gospel Library app and in the Gospel Library on the Church’s website are designed to help answer an individual’s gospel questions and to help others find answers to theirs.

Finding answers to gospel questions using reliable sources can lead to increased faith in Jesus Christ and the Restoration of His Church. The Prophet Joseph Smith had questions that led him to the divine restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ. For Joseph, seeking answers was a lifelong pursuit.

Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said, “To come unto Christ, we need to develop testimonies of the living reality of Jesus Christ and the truthfulness of His restored gospel. Such testimonies come by a witness from the Holy Ghost accompanied by diligent study.”

“For those who have questions, President Russell M. Nelson has counseled, ‘Seek guidance from voices you can trust’ and ‘Take your questions to the Lord and to other faithful sources,’” Elder Renlund said. “We owe it to our members and seekers of truth to provide reliable, trusted, and faithful sources. Topics and Questions is a wonderful place to start. The associated guiding principles are like a ‘user’s manual’ for approaching the material in Topics and Questions.”

The five guiding principles for those seeking answers to their own questions are:

  1. Center your life on Jesus Christ.
  2. Be patient with yourself and others.
  3. Recognize revelation is a process.
  4. Consult reliable sources.
  5. Work to understand the past.
