“They Shall Learn Wisdom”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
The wisdom of heaven can be obtained by obedience to the laws of heaven. There is no wisdom in rebellion and disobedience.

“For They Shall Learn Wisdom”

If and when there is a conflict of interest between members' earthly pursuits and their heavenly pursuits, it is time to take stock and choose to walk in the course charted from on high. The Saints' chief obligation is to follow the Lord and work for his interests.

Their pledge, sworn on the altars of God, is and must be that they will never do anything to destroy faith; they must never perform an act or espouse a cause that runs counter to the needs and purposes of the Church. if this means they forsake the course their colleagues in the world pursue, so be it. Each member must come to believe and declare with soberness: “The kingdom of God or nothing!”
