Just days before he is scheduled to speak to young adults around the world, Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Susan Bednar, participated in a live video on Facebook and invited young adults to prepare and participate in Sunday's Worldwide Devotional for Young Adults.

"We very much look forward to being with all of you," Elder Bednar said in the live video.

The broadcast originates from Raleigh, North Carolina, on Sept. 10, and will be held at 6 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time.

"I just had a recurring thought about a verse of scripture found in the Doctrine and Covenants 128:17-18, where it talks about the importance of a welding link," Elder Bednar said. "Sister Bednar and I had an experience with President Hinckley where he talked about not becoming a weak link in the chain of our generations and in our message we are going to talk [about] the importance of becoming a welding link."

Sister Bednar invited listeners to prepare by reading The Family: A Proclamation to the World.

"Be prepared to study it," she said. "You'll gain a lot of insights from Elder Bednar's message if you come prepared from reading that proclamation."

Using family ties to guilt young people into staying in the boat.

Ignorance is no defense in the law.

Bednar is either entirely ignorant of his religious background and history. Or he is knowingly dishonest in his spiels to retain the next generation from not leaving - rather than the rubber hitting the road.

Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to something as important as salvation. He is leading many young people astray from the real God of the bible. How any church leaders can knowingly perpetuate the lies of Mormonism is on them in the day of judgment when they will have to answer to a higher law.

I'm curious what you mean. Ignorance of what? Religious history? Your statement is very general. Is there a link to something that expresses what you mean so that you don't have to write a 500 word essay to respond? I'm genuinely curious.

Is it merely a coincidence that a member of the Quorum of the Twelve has been assigned many months earlier to speak in North Carolina, only days before Irma might arrive? :surprised:

Generally speaking, Super Dave’s pre determined schedule would place him at the scene shortly after the devastation rather than in time to give a warning. He sort of turns up in time to make Gods excuses and to shake everyone’s hands. He’s great.

I would think a man who is scripture and has the power of God via priesthood could do a tad bit better than merely shaking hands..... :wink:
