“The Words of Truth Are Hard Against All Uncleanness but the Righteous Fear Them Not”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

Those who are carnally minded hate the truth, for the truth condemns their actions, actions which are untrue to all that is good and proper. Those who are spiritually minded—those who treasure up in their minds continually the words of life (D&C 84:85)—enjoy the peace and assurance of the Spirit here (see Romans 8:6) and qualify for that life which is eternal hereafter.
