Mosiah 29:26-27 (#164)

Question

How have you seen the Light of Christ influence those around you, even those who aren’t religious?

Scripture

26 Now it is not common that the voice of the people desireth anything contrary to that which is right; but it is common for the lesser part of the people to desire that which is not right; therefore this shall ye observe and make it your law—to do your business by the voice of the people.
27 And if the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land.

Mosiah 29:26-27

Quote

The majority of people aspire to be good and honorable. The Light of Christ, which is distinct from the Holy Ghost, informs their conscience… This is why many will accept moral values even when founded on religious convictions which they do not personally support…
In our increasingly unrighteous world, it is essential that values based on religious belief be part of the public discourse. Moral positions informed by a religious conscience must be accorded equal access to the public square. Under the constitutions of most countries, a religious conscience may not be given preference, but neither should it be disregarded.

Elder Quentin L. Cook
