For of him unto whom much is given much is required; and he who sins against the greater light shall receive the greater condemnation.—Doctrine and Covenants 82:3
As we go forward we must never be distracted from the great and compelling triad of responsibility laid upon the Church to, first, carry the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of the earth; second, to implement that gospel in the lives of the membership of the Church; and, third, to extend through vicarious work its blessings to those who have passed beyond the veil of death.—Gordon B. Hinckley
