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

Rugged Days Ahead


"In the light of these prophecies (abomination of desolation), there should be no doubt in the mind of any (man) that the human family is headed for trouble.  There are rugged days ahead.  It is time for every man who wishes to do his duty to get himself prepared - physically, spiritually, and psychologically -- for the task which may come at any time, as suddenly as the whirlwind."  (Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 107)
