Sacrament Meeting
One of the youth spoke on dating. He shared things from the For the Strength of Youth Pamphlet.

Don't date someone that you do not consider marriage material. The pamphlet says "Date only those that have high standards and in whose company you can maintain your standards." He also said that you should be someone worth Marrying and you find people to date.

He talked about the council to not date before 16. The pamphlet states not only that you wait until 16, but that those early dating experiences should be in group. It also states that "...good friendships can and should be developed at every age."

Sunday School
Many people don't take Jesus literally when they read Jesus' words. When He says that he is the Son of God. When he says that baptism is necessary for eternal life. When he says that keeping the commandments is necessary to have eternal life. When he says that we should be like him.

We usually think of the symbolism of the sacrament being the body and the blood. Another way to look at it might be from the standpoint of the statements he made of him being the bread of life and living water.

Jesus is the God of the old testament. Jehovah is Jesus. Although that does not mean that they are the same entity. God the Father in the New Testament is not Jehovah.
