President Heber J. Grant said: “There is but one path of safety to the Latter-day Saints, and that is the path of duty. It is not testimony, it is not marvelous manifestations, it is not knowing that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true, … that will save you and me, but it is the keeping of the commandments of God, the living the life of a Latter-day Saint” (“The President Speaks: Excerpts from the Utterances of Heber J. Grant,” Improvement Era, Nov. 1936, 659).Solomon and the Israelites had great spiritual experiences at the dedication of the temple, but spiritual experiences do not guarantee salvation (see D&C 3:4
). Chapter 9 of 1 Kings records what the Lord told Solomon regarding what the Lord requires in order to be with His people. Look for these requirements as you read.
