I think it’s time for you,

Imageto get off the computer for a little bit!  Go for a walk, go do a load of laundry, go volunteer at a nursing home, go call your sister, go read your scriptures, go plan your week.  And the list goes on, and on.

Seriously folks, we are TOO ONLINE these days!  I very much appreciate that you read my blog, but the OUTERnet can be even better than the INTERnet.

Lyrics here

I love this song of Mr. Paisley‘s.

It is a PERFECT satire of this social problem

(although there is the teensiest bit of mild lyrical innuendo)

And Elder David A Bednar of the LDS Church warns of this ubiquitous problem

of assuming fake identities on the internet.

But back to Ms. Wilkinson’s main point (bookending!)

I love you all (platonically and literally),

but right now I think it would be oh! so wise

to go attend to the matters of real life, know what I mean?

So now skedaddle!  GO DO SOMETHING!

But I’ll see ya back here eventually, right?

Sometimes telling the truth is terribly painful, uncomfortable, embarrassing, and inconvenient,

Image

BUT IT HAS TO HAPPEN!

Image

“The truth will set you free”

~John 8:23

Image

“The truth can be ugly beyond imagination,

but concerning such topics as abuse, we simply CANNOT ignore it.

It may set others free as well.  Figuratively and literally.”

Read more here about an insight that Mr. Mayer helped me understand regarding the Penn State child abuse controversy.

READERS:

How do these principles/ideas apply to YOU?

And I know that they do somehow.

Truth.

Attempting to “prove” that the LDS Church is true…

And still stand up for it (the Church).

Mormon Tabernacle Choir

“Though argument does not create conviction, lack of it destroys belief.”

~CS Lewis

Here is an interesting talk that is somewhat (though not directly)

related to this idea.

Image

Overall, when it comes to nitpicking and even (quasi) arguing about religion,

just try to remember that it’s about Christ.

Image

And that if someone isn’t interested,

IT.  IS.  OKAY.

(Line of Propriety)

Remember that the most important convert in your life is YOU.

The most important testimony to maintain is your own.

Capiche?

Image

While we ought to maintain the purity of the image of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we need not feel anxiety about “enemies” (real or perceived).  Furthermore, we should seek to avoid being overly defensive while simultaneously exercising conviction in our own faith.

-Katherine Anne Wilkinson

If/ (Because) the Church is true, it will win.
