Elder Ronald A. Rasband, a Utah native and a new member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, turns 65 on Feb. 6.

"His wisdom and his insight will prove extremely valuable to the Quorum of the Twelve and to the church as a whole," said Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, when Elder Rasband was called as an apostle on Oct. 3, 2015.

How did Elder Rasband acquire this wisdom and insight, and how much do you know about his life? Test your knowledge, learn more about Elder Rasband and celebrate his birthday by taking this quiz.

I wonder if this is to prevent people going "Who?" when he gets up to speak at Conference?
Actually, I think it's worse. I think it's the start of the indoctrinating of the masses into believing Rasband is special.

They just need to put their pictures up on the sides of the buildings and talk about how it's a members paradise.

I still think they should have called a young apostle. Thomas Monson was only 36 when he was called.

Maksutov posted pictures of statues. Isn't one of the 10 commandments no graven images?

When I went to the Book of Mormon musical in Portland a couple weeks ago I stopped by and talked to the missionaries outside after the show. They were handing out Book of Mormon pamplets.

I told them I'd been a missionary in New York New York long ago and showed them my missionary badge. They said "oh so you know who brother Brother Rasbabd is?

I had no idea who they were even talking about. I looked it up. Now i know he is an Apostle and was the mission president for the New York New York mission.

Big deal. I guess I've been out too long.

And there's the difference..... Joseph Smith and his brother aren't "worshiped" which North Korean Leaders ARE.....
That is what "graven image" refers to, i.e the worship of the Golden Cafe, etc. In our day, a similar comparison might be the Buddha statue.

What? Association of Joseph an Hyrum with Kim Jongs?
Even pictures about that men paired?

Any association is EVIL and goes to OD.
Any picture - of ludwigm - is EVIL and dangerous of this site.

In 1976, Rasband joined the Huntsman Container Corporation as a sales representative. This company would later be sold to Keyes Fibre Company. As of 1982, Rasband was living in Ridgefield, Connecticut. He was recruited to join the new Huntsman Chemical Corporation by Jon Huntsman, Sr.[3] In 1987, Rasband was appointed president and chief operating officer of Huntsman Chemical. Rasband was later a member of the corporation's board of directors.

He seems like just another narcissist leader of an increasingly irrelevant organization. His coming from corporate america probably means that he has a lot of dictator in him that the leaders love. I highly doubt he's going to stem the tide of the millennials' leaving the church. In fact, they probably see this guy being promoted as another reason to leave.

Ron Rasband is a good decent man, former CEO of Huntsman Chemical Company. The church is lucky he said yes

He also said yes to labelling gays apostates and yes to banning their kids from being members.

Luck plays no part in it. Rasband was spotted and groomed from a long way out. He's been church broke for many years. The Church knew he'd say yes, else they would not have asked him.
