MMM Sermons: "To The Boys And To The Men"



by Saint Mark (bio)


Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints call them "talks," but most (non)Christians call them sermons. This is a series of sermons that many Latter-day Saints love and believe. I hope these sermons promote and perfect your faith as they do mine.

You can find this talk in its entirety here.

In October 1998, President Gordon B. Hinckley showed why it is important that prophets exist. As Noah came before the flood, President Hinckley came before the Great Recession of 2008.

Always humble, President Hinckley shied away from the word "prophesying," but that's exactly what it turned out to be. Utilizing Pharaoh's dream that Joseph of Egypt translated, President Hinckley warned all of us "that the time has come to get our houses in order." Financial consumer debt was rising, and President Hinckley seemed to know that the tide of debt would soon come crashing down.

My former bishop shared from the pulpit how he did not heed President Hinckley's counsel and nearly paid for it as a financial planner and as a Latter-day Saint. Even though it seems that our unemployment rate will never decrease and that financial markets may never stabilize, President Hinckley shares in this talk when the light may appear at the end of the tunnel.

President Hinckley died of complications due to age just a little over three years ago. Now, President Thomas S. Monson is "our prophet dear." What counsel has come from President Monson that stands out to you as important counsel for our day and time?
