Second Quorum of the Seventy (April 6, 1996 – October 6, 2001)

General Conference Addresses

  • October 1997 General Conference
    • Four Absolute Truths Provide an Unfailing Moral Compass
      • “Societies structured by situational ethics—the belief that all truths are relative—create a moral environment defined by undistinguished shades of gray.”
      • “We cannot cope with the confusions and the challenges of this world unless we use a clear and consistent moral compass that will unerringly take us through our own personal trials and the tugs and pulls of our own temptations—a compass that will chart our way to peace of mind, self-worth, and joy.”
      • “Yes, who we are is the sum of all the choices we make. We should always remember that our choices do not begin with the act, but in the mind with the idea.”
      • “The fourth absolute truth is that the temptations of the devil can always be overcome by renewed faith in God and by repentance.”
