"We Warn..."

"WE WARN that individuals who violate covenants of chastity, who abuse spouse or offspring, or who fail to fulfill family responsibilities will one day stand accountable before God. Further, we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.

"WE CALL UPON responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those measures designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit of society." (The Family: A Proclamation to the World, 1995)

This video is a good summary of everything that has been mentioned on this blog. We must keep the family as our focus, because as the family is disintegrated, so is society. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog. I hope this has provided information that you might not have thought about before. I hope this will bring about a change of heart to those who might not understand why we as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints put so much emphasis on the family. I hope this information will help you all and your families. I know that these things are true, and I'm so grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is through living those principles that we can have true happiness.

  1. Right on Sister Teig. Nothing is as important and more greater than one's family. Why, you can find some of the greatest riches, the greatest jewels, not buried on some remote island or locked away in a safe but right there in your own home. May you and I always keep that in mind and let us not ever forget or take that for granted! Thank you for posting.
