April 2013 General Conference – Boyd K. Packer

The best thing in my life is the companionship of my wife.

We were meant to age for with it comes the knowledge of the truth.

We will not always be safe from the ad influence even in our own homes. We need to protect our nestlings. We live in a very dangerous world that threatens the most precious. Family is under attack from forces seen and unseen. The adversary is about.

We find safety and security found in living the gospel principles.

The work of the righteous shall be peace. The affects of the righteous are peace and assurance.

We find safety and security for ourselves and for our children by honoring the covenants we have made and living up to the ordinary acts of obedience required of the followers of Christ.

LDS recognize the transcendent importance of the family and strive to live in such a way that the adversary cannot steal into our homes.

The consummate power of the priesthood has been given to protect the home and its inhabitants.

Faith is a real power, not just an expression of belief.

You will do no greater eternal work than within the walls of your own home.

Moral agency – the ability to choose between good and evil

‘Go and sin no more’ – the spirit of the Lord’s ministry

We need to be careful of the tolerance trap.

Tolerance is a virtue, but, like all virtues, when exaggerated it transforms itself into a vice.

For behold, the spirit of Christ is given to every man so that he may know good from evil.

Each of us must stay in condition to respond to inspiration and the promptings of the Holy Ghost. The Lord has a way of pouring pure intelligence into our minds to prompt us, to guide us, to teach us and to warn us.

Learn to receive and act on inspiration and revelation.

I know that He will come anew with power and glory. I know I will see Him once again at the end of my life’s story.

We are free to choose and act but we are not free to choose the consequences of our choices

Each son or daughter of God can know the things they to know instantly.
