• Quote of the Day

    “Surely the reason Christ said, ‘Father, forgive them,’ was because even in that terrible hour He knew that this was the message He had come through all eternity to deliver.”
    —Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

He Lives!

In this month’s special issue of the Ensign on the Lord Jesus Christ is an article that compiles testimonies of the modern prophets regarding the Savior. “He Lives! The Witness of Latter-day Prophets” (also available on JesusChrist.lds.org) contains statements from 15 Presidents of the Church about the reality of Jesus Christ and His central role in the salvation of mankind. One remarkable thing about these quotes is the consistently bold manner of their declaration of Christ’s divinity. Another thing I find remarkable is the focus on the witness of the Spirit in the statements by Joseph F. Smith and Lorenzo Snow. After they made these statements, these men had visions, and through his granddaughter we know that Lorenzo Snow saw the Savior in the Salt Lake Temple. Yet it was the Holy Ghost bearing witness to their hearts that really gave them a testimony. And so it shall always be.

  1. Hey I’m new to this and would like to know what a mormon belives is truth?

  2. Thanks for visiting, wolverine. It’s certainly a wide-ranging question. “What is truth?” Well, if you’re looking for a thorough philosophical treatment of the question, I might be the wrong one to ask. If you’re simply asking for a basic overview of Mormons’ beliefs, you can go to http://www.mormon.org or http://www.JesusChrist.lds.org, or if you’re adventuresome, http://www.lds.org. I’d be happy to help with other, more specific, questions if you like. But these references are about as good as I can do right now for what you’re asking.
