Coming Elder David A. Bednar: If something we think, see, hear, or do distances us from the Holy Ghost, then we should stop thinking, seeing, hearing, or doing that thing. If that which is intended to entertain, for example, alienates us from the Holy Spirit, then certainly that type of entertainment is not for us. Because the Spirit cannot abide that which is vulgar, crude, or immodest, then clearly such things are not for us. Because we estrange the Spirit of the Lord when we engage in activities we know we should shun, then such things definitely are

not for us. As we become ever more immersed in the Spirit of the Lord, we should strive to recognize impressions when they come and the influences or events that cause us to withdraw ourselves from the Holy Ghost (That We May Always Have His Spirit to Be with Us, Ensign May 2006, 30) Preparing for the 2nd Coming

Preparing for the 2nd Coming Preparing for the 2nd Coming President James E. Faust taught: I strongly urge you that if there is any question in your minds or hearts about whether your personal conduct is right or wrong, dont do it.

It is the responsibility of the prophets of God to teach the word of God, not to spell out every jot and tittle of human conduct. If we are conscientiously trying to avoid not only evil but the very appearance of evil, we will act for ourselves and not be acted upon (The Devils Throat, Ensign or Liahona, May 2003, 51). Preparing for the 2nd Coming

Never stop praying Rejoice always In everything give thanks Quench not the spirit Hold fast to that which is good Abstain from all appearance of evil
