Church Services This Week at Sullivan Hollow Second Ward Weber Heights Stake Ogden Utah June 6-13-2010

Mosiah 4:30
  30 But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not awatch yourselves, and your bthoughts, and your cwords, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God, and dcontinue in the faith of what ye have heard concerning the coming of our Lord, even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, and perish not.

Doctrine and Covenants 76:41
  41 That he acame into the world, even Jesus, to be bcrucified for the world, and to cbear the sins of the dworld, and to esanctify the world, and to fcleanse it from all unrighteousness;

Matt 27:52
  52 And the agraves were opened; and many bbodies of the csaints dwhich slept earose,

The atonement heals us from our physical and spiritual ailments.

The teacher passed out a list of scriptures and quotes.
1. Proverbs 3:5-6
2. 1 Samuel 9:2
3. 1 Samuel 13:7-8
4. 1 Samuel 13:9
5. Quote: Elder James E. Talmage wrote, "Saul prepared the burnt offering himself, forgetting that though he occupied the throne, wore
the crown, and bore the scepter, [he had] no right to officiate ... in the Priesthood of God; and for this and other instances of his
unrighteous presumption he was rejected of God and another was made king in his place" (The Articles of Faith, 12th ed. [ 1924], 185).
6. 1 Samuel 13:10-14
7. 1 Samuel 16:1-2
8. 1 Samuel 16:6-7
9. Quote: Elder Marvin J. Ashton said: "We ... tend to evaluate others on the basis of physical, outward appearance: their 'good looks,'
their social status, their family pedigrees, their degrees, or their economic situations.

"The Lord, however, has a different standard by which He measures a person. ... He does not take a tape measure around the person's
head to determine his mental capacity, nor his chest to determine his manliness, but He measures the heart as an indicator of the person's
capacity and potential to bless others" (in Conference Report, Oct. 1988, 17; or Ensign, Nov. 1988, 15).
10. 1 Samuel 16:8-13
11. 1 Samuel 16:14
12. 1 Samuel 16:18-23
13. 1 Samuel 16:18
14. 1 Samuel 17:4-11
15. 1 Samuel 17:32-37
16. 1 Samuel 17:42-44
17. 1 Samuel 17:45-47

Was Samuel prepared by the Lord to accept David as king by Samuel being chosen by the lord at a young age?

The army was not just afraid of dieing by losing to Goliath, but also by being the one to cost their people their freedom.

"But the center of a virtuous life is chastity," (Elain S. Dalton, CES Fireside, "Zion Is the Pure in Heart", September 13, 2009)

Satan has put into the hearts of he daughters of eve to use their bodies to get gain.

President Hinckley related meeting someone on a flight. The man was what I would perceive to be a hippy, flower child, or whatever one might call that sort of lifestyle and appearance.  He indicated that his aim in life was peace and freedom.
"He had learned in our opening introductions that I was a churchman; and he let me know, in something of a condescending way, that the morality of my generation was a joke. Then with earnestness he asked how I could honestly defend personal virtue and moral chastity. I shocked him a little when I declared that his freedom was a delusion, that his peace was a fraud, and that I would tell him why.

"I have thought much of that discussion and others like it that I have held over the years. Today there are persons numbered in the millions who, in a search for freedom from moral restraint and peace from submerged conscience, have opened a floodgate of practices that enslave and debauch. These practices, if left unchecked, will not only destroy these individuals but also the nations of which they are a part."

13th article of faith
  13 aWe believe in being bhonest, true, cchastedbenevolent, virtuous, and in doing egood to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we fhope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to gendure all things. If there is anything hvirtuousilovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

From the Bulletin
"During the critical days of World War II, Winston Churchill aroused an entire nation when he said, "You, ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. victory. Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory, there is no survival." Young men and young women, I echo that call for the war in which we are engaged today by paraphrasing the words of Winston Churchill for you: You ask, what is our aim? I can answer with one word., virtue. Virtue at all costs, virtue in spite of all opposition, virtue, however long and hard the road to repentance may be; for without virtue, there can be no victory.
In the Book of Mormon, Helaman and his stripling warriors are known for their virtue and their ability to trust in their mothers' testimonies. They were "true at all times in whatsoever thing they were entrusted' (Alma 53:20). They were covenant keepers, and they fought to ensure that their parents could also keep their covenants. Victory was their aim and virtue was their strength.
Mormon reported to his son Moroni, that his degenerate society had become so base and immoral that they didn't value those things that were "most dear and precious above all things, which is chastity and virtue" (Moroni 9.9). You are preparing for the Savior's return. You must abhor sin. You must position and prepare yourselves now to be "more fit for the kingdom." Sister Elaine S. Dalton, "Zion Is the Pure in Heart", CES Fireside for Young Adults, September 13, 2009, BYU.
