With the death of Boyd K Packer I wanted to share one of his most famous addresses in 1976 called spiritual crocodiles. Here is the link to the video.
President Packer was one who often warned us of the dangers of the world and to avoid the worldy influence. The Commandments provide us peace and safety! What may seem like a restricting fence is a wall protecting us from the evil, heartache, and danger. The commandments provide us peace and give us joy and happiness. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a shield from the world. One of my favorite scriptures in the book of mormon explains this perfectly
41 And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.
I love you all!!! The church is true!!! I know that Jesus is our savior and our redeemer. May we build our lives on his rock and his gospel!!!
