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

All that is Good is Spiritual

"We have been given direction, sometimes thought of as temporal in it's nature, such as tithing, fast offerings, the welfare program, the Word of Wisdom, chastity, obedience to the law of the land, and others.  Whatever their temportal aspect may be, they are given to us to build us up spiritually.  We can draw no hard and fast line between temporal and spiritual.  All that is good is spiritual." -President Henry D. Moyle
