A THOUGHT FROM THE SCRIPTURES

Wherefore, meaning the church, thou shalt give heed unto all his words and commandments which he shall give unto you as he receiveth them, walking in all holiness before me;

For his word ye shall receive, as if from mine own mouth, in all patience and faith.For by doing these things the gates of hell shall not prevail against you; yea, and the Lord God will disperse the powers of darkness from before you, and cause the heavens to shake for your good, and his name's glory. - D&C 21:4-6

"There is but one on earth at a time called to exercise the keys of the holy priesthood," Elder Henry D. Taylor, Assistant to the Twelve, said at October 1960 general conference. "He may delegate to others the power and authority to act for him in such capacity as as he will, but he alone holds the keys for such actions.

". . . It is my sincere desire that we will share in the responsibility of building up the kingdom of God here upon the earth, and not shift it all to the shoulders of our leaders."
