Testimony – More Powerful than the Sword

JC and Shiloh Logan discuss the nature of testimony and how bearing down testimony by the spirit is the Lord’s answer for solving the world’s ills. The world, in fear, resorts to force, violence and bloodshed to control others. The Book of Mormon teaches us through the examples of the sons of Mosiah, Alma the younger, Enos and others, that the process to create a better world begins with one’s self through repentance. Once our personal salvation is worked out, the love we partake of causes us to not only seek the welfare of those around us, but also to secure the same, even for our enemies. When we can stand forth in love and declare the word with love, by bearing down testimony, we can be instruments in the hands of the Lord in making the world a better place. The word of God is more powerful than the sword.

    One of the things that I’ve always found frustrating during testimony meetings is how few testimonies we hear. Instead, we hear about gratitude, about thankfulness, about belief, about spiritual experiences. While all of these have value–especially spiritual experiences because they often lead to testimony–what I want to hear is witness to truth. What did you experience? What do you know? Sadly, that’s not something that we often hear.

    Thank you foryour spiritually profound insights regarding the change that comes over a person whose been forgiven by God for sins (as in Enos). Truly, as Jesus said, “by this shall men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one toward another.”
