“We are convinced that our members are hungry for the gospel, undiluted, with its abundant truths and insights…. There are those who have seemed to forget that the most powerful weapons the Lord has given us against all that is evil are His own declarations, the plain simple doctrines of salvation as found in the scriptures.” (President Harold B. Lee, In regional representatives’ seminar, 1 Oct 1970, p. 6.)
