Members of the LDS faith (and really any believing Christians) shouldn’t be afraid of the second coming of Jesus Christ. A speech by Jeffrey R Holland helped clarify the difference between sensationalism and preparedness for me. I wanted to share my main takeaways from the talk: Terror Triumph and a Wedding Feast.
1. Live your life now.
Plant trees. Get an education. Go after your dreams. Get married. Set goals for your life. Don’t be paralyzed by fear of a possible impending doom because of the signs of the times. We live in the latter-days, but we should LIVE our lives as if we were building forever. Here is Elder Holland:
“We should watch for the signs and read the meaning of the seasons, we should live as faithfully as we possibly can, and we should share the gospel with everyone so that blessings and protections will be available to all. But we cannot and must not be paralyzed just because that event and the events surrounding it are out there ahead of us somewhere. We cannot stop living life. Indeed, we should live life more fully than we have ever lived it before. After all, this is the dispensation of the fulness of times.”
