Our Foundation is Firm, but is our Agency?

alllnj Today I had the opportunity to listen to General Conference. It is something that happens every 6 months, that the LDS faith participates in. Many of the talks were centered on the roles of a man and a women. I was happy that the church was clarifying these roles because of the beliefs that other women are conjuring up on their own. What I learned is that the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints is not one where the values are shifted because of popular belief, but it is a church that has built their foundation upon a rock. The laws and ordinances and the keys of the Priesthood have been fully restored to this earth. The church was officially reorganized at the Peter Whitmer Farm this day in 1830. I have been there, I have stood on that ground, and I have felt the spirit confirm to me, that this is the true church. I have been given a position and I need to exemplify it. I am not here to change God’s plans but to follow them with strict obedience. I feel the equality between men and women through God’s love and the blessings he provides. In the quote on my brother and sister-in-laws wedding photograph it says “The Gospel…is the only concern of the church.” The gospel is the ONLY CONCERN! We should be focusing on sharing this “good news” with others rather than debating our roles. We have been given an outline it is our turn to write the paper… In the end how we portray our roles will be judged by our loving Heavenly Father. All I can say is that if you feel concern about the roles we have been given as a man and a women, then study it out in your mind, pray about it, fast about it, and then trust God. God gives the commandments but he gives us the agency…How will you choose?
