Robert S. Wood

Second Quorum of the Seventy (April 3, 1999 – October 3, 2009)

General Conference Addresses

  • April 2006 General Conference
    • Instruments of the Lord’s Peace
      • “The first casualties of human wrath are truth and understanding.”
      • “It is far too easy sometimes to fall into a spirit of mockery and cynicism in dealing with those of contrary views. We demoralize or demean so as to bring others or their ideas in contempt.”
  • October 1999 General Conference
    • “The Tongue of Angels”
      • “What we say and how we present ourselves not only betray our inner person but also mold that person, those around us, and finally our whole society. Every day each of us is implicated in obscuring the light or in chasing away the darkness. We have been called to invite the light and to be a light, to sanctify ourselves and edify others.”
      • “When we speak and act, we should ask whether our words and expressions are calculated to invite the powers of heaven into our lives and to invite all to come unto Christ. We must treat sacred things with reverence. We need to eliminate from our conversations the immodest and the lewd, the violent and the threatening, the demeaning and the false.”
