seeing

I sustain all General Authorities of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as prophets, seers, and revalators.

  38 What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my aword shall not pass away, but shall all be bfulfilled, whether by mine own cvoiceor by the dvoice of my eservants, it is the fsame.

I believe that. I know that.

Some may say that it's silly, that I'm blindly following. I say, there is nothing blind about it. In truth, I am seeing.

You know a certain route you've driven so many times that you're certain you could drive it with your eyes closed? Or even your home- you frequent it enough that you could likely get around blindfolded, right? Now, it's not that you would ever test those ideas [let's be honest, driving with your eyes closed? Not wise], but you know that you know that route without question. Because you are familiar with it, you know it, you trust it, and it has never done you wrong before.

Now, maybe that's a rough comparison for you, but it resonates with me. I've followed the prophets and I've followed my Heavenly Father before. I have never been led astray. Therefore, I am willing to follow "blindly" whatever they say. Because I know it's not truly blind but, to the contrary, it is visionary faith. I am seeing because I know.


It's a tough subject that is frequenting the news today. And, I don't want to make a big deal out of it. I don't want to tell anyone that their opinion is wrong. I don't want to judge anyone. I simply am stating that I sustain President Boyd K. Packer in what he said this last conference, and in everything he has said before. We all have different opinions and beliefs, these are mine.
