QUOTE: “This church means everything to me! Everything! I don’t care what happens. I don’t care what price is to be paid. As painful as that can be and as much as I don’t want to invite the test, as much as I don’t want to sound arrogant or self-confident or filled with any kind of pride other than the love of the Lord, this church means everything to me, and I’m not going to leave it, and I’m not going to let you leave it.” –Jeffrey R. Holland, 26 April 2016, Tempe Arizona. [source]
COMMENTARY: Apparently, some prices are too high for Elder Holland. Sitting down, reading the CES Letter, and inviting Jeremy Runnells into his office for an honest and open dialog are all apparently too difficult for this apostle of God. It’s hard to blame him, though. I’m sure he’s a very busy man, what with all the ninety and nine he has to take care of. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
