Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

Disobedient were Drowned

 
“Noah heeded Gods command to build an ark...that they might be saved from the floodwaters. Yet there was no evidence of rain and flood.  His actions were considered irrational.  The sun was shining and life moved forward as usual. But time ran out.  The floods came, the disobedient were drowned. When God speaks and we obey, we will always be right.”     - Thomas S. Monson (October 2002 Ensign)
