Where do We Seek Truth?
Review by - LarryN
In the 2018 General Conference, President Oaks focus his talk on the topic of truth and the LDS plan. While he covers a few in-depth principles, we will mainly be analyzing the topic of truth according to his talk. President Oaks opens his address advising the listeners to heed to the sources of truth. Only base our personal decisions on information sources that are “qualified on the subject and free from selfish motivation”.
I personally agree with his advice. However, mostly applicable in a worldly use. Why? Because as a Christian, we seek Christ and His Truth. In John 8:32, Christ says “And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free” (KJV). We find out that Jesus is that Truth (John 14:6). Thus, to seek truth in all things is by Him and in Him. To Elder Oaks’ credit, he does list the matters of finding truth with the spiritual methods: prayer, the witness to the Holy Ghost, and the study of scriptures and the words modern day prophets.
