That is a true Chiac sentence, my friends. I have honestly heard those words uttered.Happy birthday to Sister Swain and Sara Warr!!!
We got our fourth Elder this week! Just in time for Elder Thunot and Elder Waldie to go out of town for another concert. So there were only 4 missionaries in church this week. But Elder Fortier is here now! I came to the field with him, we were in the MTC together. He is from Quebec and has blackmail photos of me.
I want letters, guys.
"You can never un-know something. You can't unlearn something. Once you have a witness, you can't undo it... I pray for [people who choose to forget their spiritual witnesses] that they can let themselves remember what they know and trust their feelings above man's."
Now, hey, if you're an inactive member of the Church, I'm talking to you. And I'm gonna do it bluntly, because as a missionary that's what I do best.
For example, I know that God lives. I know that through spiritual experience. However, a lot of people don't. And there are some people who once had a spiritual witness that God lives and then made the choice to forget it. But if the witness of the Holy Ghost is more real than any other witness, then they are also choosing to put man's idea of what's possible and impossible ("there is no God") above their own feelings--above the impressions that God Himself sent them.
I know that. I know that God lives. I know that Christ is my Savior. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church. I am more sure of that than I am of the witnesses any of my other senses give me. And I trust my own knowledge more than I trust other people telling me that I'm a fool for believing that, that there's no proof of it, or that God doesn't have only one church. Because I have received a solid witness that it is true, and I act on that witness enough to never have to deny my knowledge.
Love with all my heart,
