President Uchtdorf"s message about what the Saviorhas been trying to teach
us is truly wonderful.Love requirres action. We must reach out and share
the Gospel with a pure Christ like love.Without the fault finding or
making others feelun wanted or needed.My mother seved a mission. She
was told by her WardBishop they would not support her financially. Her
response was, Did I ask? She loves everyone and hasraised her family in
the church.She always said its the people who are imperfect. She is 1 of 12
siblings raised in LDS Church. The Love each one has for each other and their
familes are remarkable.She loves her children we love her.As a young
widowshe raised us to rely on the Lord. To follow the councel of the
Prophets. Don't let anyone or anything keep us out of Heaven, has been her
constant warning to us. To go and partake of the Sacrament and renew our
covenants. We were taught never to critize the leaders.Your talk is a
reminderto always stay close to our Heavenly FatherThank You
President Uchtdorf's talk gives us HOPE for being better people. We need to do
less judging of others around us, for God is the only true judge who has the
power and the right to make correct judgments of us all.
President Uchtdorf's talk was the most beautiful of any talk given in all my 47
years!It was the first time I heard over the pulpit, from a Member of the 1st Presidency, an Apostle, a
non-American....The GOSPEL (Good News).This IS the message the
Savior was trying to teach us.Thank you again Elder Uchtdorf.
I completely agree with you. Thank you for your good thoughts.Elder
Uchtdorf is indeed a wonderful speaker who speaks from his heart.I
am afraid though there are too many who chose to be full of hate and never
forgiving. There will always be some folks who think everything is someone elses
fault instead of admitting that it is their own. They would rather shove the
blame and tell lies. Stubborn people are hard to reach when they think they do
I thik this is one of the most beautiful talks I have ever heard. We have all
sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We also have all been hurt by others
offenses. Imagine how different our lives can be if we felt "more sorrow for
sin" as the sinner and more compassion when offended because "in the quiet heart
is hidden sorrow that the eye can't see"
This talk spoke to my heart like no other during the conference sessions. I am
a fifth generation Mormon with pioneer ancestors on every side. For the last
sixteen years of my life I have been inactive trying to find a reason to justify
complete separation from the church. The reason is that I have felt like other
people are so much better than I am, I have nothing to add, and that many times
I feel looked down upon because of a part history of depression and emotional
problems. There have been times I have looked down on others myself for
different reasons, so I know how the process works. During this conference I
prayed that someone would give a talk that would provide hope and tend to turn
me around and provide direction. I am a sixty plus year old grandmother that
has had a hard time knowing the feeling of true love. My mother died when I was
a little girl and I learned to bury feelings to cope. I had a hard time loving
my farents because of their constant criticism and trying to make me a clone of
I know how hard it would be if we didn't feel the hands of Jesus outreaching for
us! Why? Because he loves us all! In a familiar Christian hymn ABIDE WITH ME
FAST FALLS THE EVENTIDE THE DARKNESS DEEPENS LORD WITH ME ABIDE! WHEN OTHER
HELPERS FAIL AND COMFORTS FLEE HELP OF THE HELPLESS OH ABIDE WITH ME! Think of
the words of this hymn GOD will help you when you are down! He helps us all!
Passing judgment and holding grudges on others has to one of the biggest sins of
the day. some members need to get over themselves, because none of us are
without fault nor perfect.President, Elder Uchtdorf gave a well
needed talk to the members today. I hope it does some good.I do
appreciate this good mans words.
Amen LDS Democrat -- I could hardly contain my thankfulness for this talk. I
wish it could be replayed during Sacrament next week... and the next week ...
and the next week... until it sinks in that we need to be more concerned with
whether we are being sincere followers of Christ (His Hands)than harshly
verbally attacking and judging those whose opinions may differ from ours. Christ
was all about humbly loving, accepting and serving all. Should we do any less? I
LOVED THIS TALK! Following on the heels of his fantastic talk at the YW
Broadcast, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for this apostle.
Elder Uchtdorf, You have inspired us all to be better people and not to pass
judgment on others.THANK YOU :)
Truly a wonderful talk. Thank You.
I loved this talk. I am wondering about that statue of Christ and would love to
see a picture of it. Thanks President Uchdorf.
I am an African American convert from the inner city of New York City. Overall,
I have never wanted to feel like a charity case, or treated like a "project". I
try to conduct myself with dignity, and to practice principles of self reliance.
I am 24 years old, and I have been on my own since I was a young teen. I come
from a family of entrepreneurs. Despite all of that, I have often
felt ostracized by certain attitudes that I have discened from some members that
sound as if: This is their church, and they have done me a favor. I
am one of those converts that have had too many spiritual witnesses to allow
anything to separate me from the Love of God..."The church is perfect, but the
people aren't". On the other hand, I love the members of this church, and so
many of them have been wondrous friends. So many of the members have reached out
to me,So many of the members have reached out to me, loved me, and taught me. I
have so much to learn; yet, I am grateful for the love and friendship that I
Thank you, President Uchtdorf! Great sermon!
Excellent talk with many good pointers to live by. Thank You, Elder Uchtdorf.
You are a great leader.
Trs bon discours !
What a remarkable man Elder Uchtdorf is. I could listen to him talk for hours.
This man is one of the most spiritual speakers the church has ever had. I am
grateful for his goodness and purity.
An amazing and insightful talk that teaches us the way to peace in our homes,
communities, churches, and in the world.
I loved Elder Uchtdorf's talk this morning. He is such a wonderful person. He
talked about judging others which seems to be a big problem with many
members,and we as church members need to work on this sin. There is too much
judgment of others who don't look and act like us so we therefor condemn them..
We scorn the inactive which we probably drove out of the church in the first
place. It is time to heal and repent.
Hands Down my FAVORITEST Talk!!! EVER.Thanks Pres. Uchtdorf
