LDS General Conference Quotes

Here's my favorite quote from General Conference so far, by Elder Andersen:

"A few question their faith when they find a statement made by a church leader decades ago that seems incongruent with our doctrine. There's an important principle that governs the doctrine of the Church. The doctrine is taught by all fifteen members of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve. It is not hidden in an obscure paragraph of one talk. True principles are taught frequently and by many. Our doctrine is not difficult to find.

"The leaders of the Church are honest but imperfect men. Remember the words of Moroni? "Condemn me not because of my imperfection, neither my father, but rather, give thanks unto God that he hath made manifest unto you our imperfections, that ye may learn to be more wise than we have been." Joseph Smith said, "I never told you I was perfect, but there is no error in the revelations."

"The miracle of God's hand in the history and destiny of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is only understood through the lens of spiritual inquiry."
