This topic has been on my mind today, and I love Elder Romney's view.
Elder Marion G. Romney:
“I don’t know much about the gospel other than what I’ve learned from the standard works. (the scriptures) When I drink from a spring I like to get the water where it comes out of the ground, not down the stream after the cattle have waded in it. . . . I appreciate other people’s interpretation, but when it comes to the gospel we ought to be acquainted with what the Lord says”
(Marion G. Romney, in J. Richard Clarke, in Conference Report, Oct. 1982, 19; or Ensign, Nov. 1982, 15 ).
