"By What Authority?": Part 5

Thank you for never ceasing to teach of Christ and putting our faith and trust in Him. But I see it as a two way street. How many of your Elders Quorum objected to your being released as their instructor? One or two, if any? See the people love the present 'follow the prophet heresy because they, like the children of Israel, don't have to be instructed by God. They can imagine their righteousness without without searching the words of God. Also it is hard for those in authority to be any different because of the adoration. Even Moses took credit because the people gave him the credit.

Thank you for this post and all your posts. I am reminded of the time I was called as a branch president in a small branch in northern Canada. This was in the late '80s to early '90s.

Thanks Harry, what great advice. It stands out today, when I just read this morning on the Church Newspage that Elder Holland counseled seminary students in Utah with the message, "Stay close to the Church." I love the Church, but it doesn't compare with Christ!
