Quote of the Day: Elder Rulon G. Craven

Elder Rulon G. Craven, then a member of the Seventy:

“It is a frightening realization that the powers of evil will increase in the world. This brings us to the questions, What can we do? Is there a way to escape from the powers of evil? Yes, there is.

“Members of the Church can overcome temptation by (1)obedience to the guiding principles and doctrines of the gospel of Jesus Christ, (2)following the counsel of our prophets and leaders, and (3)living in such a way that our lives are constantly influenced by the power of the Holy Ghost.

“Train your mind to obey gospel principles and covenants. Stay on the highway of daily personal and family prayer, the avenue of studying the scriptures and the teachings of the prophets, the road of serving in the Church, and be willing to get off the wrong road daily and on the right road leading to eternal life. Your greatest protection against temptation is an active and vibrant testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which binds us to our Heavenly Father” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1996, 107; or Ensign, May 1996, 77 ).
