We have been recently challenged as members of the Mormon Church by Elder Ballard to raise our voices and tell honestly what we really believe.
With all the falsehoods and misconceptions about the Church found online, Elder Ballard urged the graduates to use their knowledge and testimony of the gospel to influence seekers of truth. “Today I want to encourage you to reach out to others in the world to help change the perception and even the hearts of millions of our Heavenly Father’s children by correcting misunderstandings by sharing with them the message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.” (LDS Newsroom)
The following video is a few years old, and shows former Apostle, Elder Bruce R. McConkie, talking about the same problem while denouncing the unfair attacks of those who oppose the Mormon Church. We know that their opposition will not prevail, but we need to do our part, explaining our true beliefs, in humility but not in shyness. We cannot let other people define what we do believe.
