QUOTE: “If we have the truth, it cannot be harmed by investigation. If we have not the truth, it ought to be harmed.” – J. Rueben Clark, as quoted by D. Michael Quinn in J. Reuben Clark: The Church Years, p. 24. [source]
COMMENTARY: Robert Ringer said, “People say they love truth, but in reality they want to believe that which they love is true.” Ask yourself this: do you love the church because it’s true, or do you think it’s true because you love it? If the former, you shouldn’t be afraid to confront the truth head-on. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
