Our Moral Test
This life is a moral test in which we all have infinite potential. As we achieve and progress, we must be humble and realize how much more we have to learn.
On the Moral Purposes of Law and Government

By using our God-given moral agency in the way that Jesus Christ exemplified, we don't become God's puppets—we become like Him.

Doing the Right Things for the Right Reasons
It isn't enough to be doing the right things; we need to make sure we are doing them for the right reasons. Ask yourself, "Are my motives pure?"
Add to Your Faith Virtue
Sexual purity and virtue are imperative for men and women alike. Living morally will prevent temporal and spiritual consequences for you and your families.

Why Religious Education!
Religious education—in homes, churches, and institutes of religion everywhere—are necessary for our spiritual and moral health.
What Is True Freedom?
We are blessed to live in a free land. But is true freedom the ability to do whatever you darn well please? No. True freedom cannot come without morality.
A Style of Our Own
As the world becomes increasingly dismissive of the morality, we must create a style of our own—one of modesty and chastity.
Protecting Political Freedom
As the central government's power ever increases, we must protect our political freedom and show that we will take a stand as members of the Church.
