General Conference Addresses

  • April 1989 General Conference
    • The Way to Perfection
      • “Resurrection is the reuniting of the body and the spirit. As Jesus was resurrected, eventually every person who was ever born into this world will be resurrected, whether he wants to be or not. When a person is resurrected, he receives immortality, which is to live forever in the resurrected state. Likewise, every person who was ever born into this world will receive immortality regardless of his or her behavior in this life. Thus, resurrection and immortality are synonymous. They are not a reward—they are a gift—for we have rendered no service nor attained any accomplishment to warrant these as a reward. The gift is from the Savior; it comes through His atoning sacrifice.”
      • “When one extends mercy to others, he develops purity of heart.”
      • “Disparagement of others should not exist within our ranks, for each of us is struggling to move forward.”
  • October 1984 General Conference
