The Impact of True Doctrine
Elder Boyd K. Packer, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, taught:
“True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior.
“The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior” (in Conference Report, Oct. 1986, 20; or Ensign, Nov. 1986, 17).
