Gospel Art Picture Kit
President of the Church, 1970–1972
President Joseph Fielding Smith invited all people to come unto Christ: “There is no cure for the ills of the world except the gospel of Jesus Christ. … And so we invite all our Father’s children, everywhere, to believe in Christ, to receive him as he is revealed by living prophets, and to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. … To the honest in heart in all nations we say: The Lord loves you. He wants you to receive the full blessings of the gospel” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1972, 13; or Ensign, July 1972, 27).
He left this blessing on the youth of the Church: “The Lord bless you and keep you, which most assuredly will be so as you learn his laws and live in harmony with them. Be true to every trust. Honor thy father and thy mother. Dwell together in love and conformity. Be modest in your dress. Overcome the world, and do not be led astray by the fashions and practices of those whose interests are centered upon the things of this world” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1972, 13–14).
Joseph Fielding Smith, 10th President of the Church, invited all to come unto Christ. He said: “There is no cure for the ills of the world except the gospel of Jesus Christ. … The Lord loves you. He wants you to receive the full blessings of the gospel.”
