VIDEO: Come, Follow Me Book of Mormon: “I Am the Law, and the Light” 3 Nephi 12-16 | Be Ye Therefore Perfect—Eventually | Elder Holland
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.Read More

Where did we come from? Why are we here on earth? And where do we go after we die? We’ve all asked these questions hoping to discover the purpose of life. Mormons—more properly referred to as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—believe that God has a plan for us. It’s called the plan of salvation, and it contains the answers to life’s questions. Jesus Christ is the central figure in God’s plan.Read More
