Pres. Boyd K. Packer

Quorum of the Twelve

"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are."

"Young men and women, keep yourselves worthy. Stay away from those environments, the music, the films, the videos and the clubs and associations that draw you into immoral conduct."

"If you consent, the adversary can take control of your thoughts and lead you carefully toward a habit to an addiction, convincing you that immoral, unnatural behavior is a fixed part of your nature."

"With some few, there is the temptation that seems nearly overpowering for man to be attracted to man or woman to woman. The scriptures plainly condemn those who 'dishonour their own bodies between themselves.' "

Pressure is put upon legislatures to legalize unnatural conduct, yet they can never make right that which is forbidden in the laws of God. "Our beloved, precious youth, stay in the Lord's way. If you stumble, rise up, go on. If you have lost your way, we all await your return."
