Truth . . . and More

August 1, 1985


The gospel of Jesus Christ offers light and truth, answers to our most pressing questions. Truth, however, is only one of many blessings of the gospel.

Speech highlights:

“Truth proclaimed by deity is as absolute as deity. It is defined as ‘things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come.’ The glory of truth is revealed in these words of the master: ‘If ye continue in my word then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.’ Truth literally frees us from the bondage that ignorance brings.”

“Truth and more bring more than truth alone. Just as oxen may be equally yoked together to accomplish what one could not do alone, so the power of truth is augmented if equally yoked together with righteousness, or with mercy, or with the spirit of love.”
