    Using Divinely Appointed Sources

    In a fast-paced world with information readily at our fingertips, there is a lot we have to filter through to get to truth. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, then Second Counselor in the First Presidency, said, “Never in the history of the world has it been more important to learn how to correctly discern between truth and error” (“What Is Truth?” [worldwide devotional for young adults, Jan. 13, 2013], broadcasts.lds.org).

    In the video below, young adults share their stories as they sought to find truth among the “myriad of voices and the philosophies of men that attack truth” (Russell M. Nelson, “Revelation for the Church, Revelation for Our Lives,” Apr. 2018 general conference). Watch and share this video in the Media Library (available in 37 languages).


    As you help your students find answers to their questions and good resources to help build strong testimonies, consider using the resources found on the Answering Doctrinal, Historical, and Social Questions page. By studying the answers to questions students might have, you will be better prepared to help guide them to use divinely appointed sources.
