God, Family, Country: Our Three Great Loyalties by Ezra Taft Benson

As a great Christian nation-a nation with a spiritual foundation-we join the Christian world in commemoration of that all-important and glorious event, the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I bear witness that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of the world, the very Son of God.

He was born the Babe of Bethlehem.

He lived and ministered among men.

He was crucified on Calvary.

He is risen-really resurrected.

He has appeared to men as a glorified Eternal King, in Palestine and also in America.

I bear this witness to all, but direct my remarks especially to our youth of the free world, for whom I have great hope and a fervent prayer.

My text, from  Luke  in the New Testament, stands out boldly in its impressive beauty. It covers a period of eighteen years following the return of Jesus from Jerusalem to Nazareth. Except for this one rich sentence of greatest import, the scriptures for this eighteen-year period are silent:

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.  (Luke 2:52.)

Here, then, in one sentence-fourteen words-is the impressive, meaningful, and comprehensive account of eighteen years of preparation of the Son of God, the Savior and Redeemer of the world.

Here, in broad outline, in one succinct sentence-four points-are given the major fields of mans activity and striving: mental, physical, spiritual, and social.

Young men and women, remember, it is people, not things, that are all-important. Character is the one thing we make in this world and take with us into the next. Gods purpose is to build people of character, not physical monuments to their material accumulations.

Israel Putnam was one of the Revolutionary War farmers who left his plow in the field and gave up his comfort in order to protect his family, defend his inalienable God-given rights, and help establish this great, free country. It is heartening to know that today there are still those who answer to the rallying cry of God, family, and country. This is part of our mission today. The same sun that shone on Israel Putnam during his mortal probation shines on us. And the same issues of light and darkness, force and freedom, right and wrong, that provided men a chance to prove themselves in his day continue to sift the souls of men today. The thing that concerns so many of us today is not that wickedness is new, but that never before in our history has it been so well organized or so insidiously successful. Now, in view of this fact, and with a final showdown approaching between the powers of good and evil, may I be so bold as to make a few personal observations and express my convictions regarding God, family, and country.

Travelers on the highway between Logan, Utah, and Whitney, Idaho, witnessed something unusual on June 4, They saw people standing along portions of that mile kilometer stretch of road. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles explained why people had gathered there.
