We invite you to look within yourself as we consider together the principles of truth, integrity and candor. President J. Reuben Clark said “If we have the truth, it cannot be harmed by investigation. If we have not the truth, it ought to be harmed.” And President Hugh B. Brown said “The honest investigator must be prepared to follow wherever the search of truth may lead. Truth is often found in the most unexpected places. He must, with fearless and open mind insist that facts are far more important than any cherished, mistaken beliefs, no matter how unpleasant the facts or how delightful the beliefs.”
Please know that the truth can withstand scrutiny, and be not afraid.
May you be edified and guided as you seek direction from your own inherent abilities and true authentic self. We promise that if you will do so, you will be liberated from the evils and designs which exist in the hearts of conspiring men and receive profound comfort, healing and enlightenment.
The First Presidency
