Elder Jeffrey R. Holland October 2017 LDS General Conference talk. “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father … in heaven is perfect” [Matthew 5:48]. Such celestial goals seem beyond our reach. Yet surely the Lord would never give us a commandment He knew we could not keep. I believe that Jesus did not intend His sermon on this subject to be a verbal hammer for battering us about our shortcomings. No, I believe He intended it to be a tribute to who and what God the Eternal Father is and what we can achieve with Him in eternity.
President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency, and Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will answer questions from youth around the world during a live Face to Face event on March 4, 2017.
