The things which were written were plain and pure, and most precious and easy to the understanding of all men.—1 Nephi 14:23
The gospel of Jesus Christ is beautifully simple and simply beautiful. Even simple enough that a Primary child can have a good idea of gospel basics by the time of that eighth birthday and the privilege of baptism comes along.—Robert L. Simpson
