GP: MGSP Study Outlines 51: Citizenship

1983 Missionary Gospel Study Program
Study Outlines 51: Citizenship

"We must all strengthen the community in which we live, from a civic and political as well as a religious standpoint.  I tell you my brethren and sisters, that when we exercise this kind of faith and courage in behalf of our neighbors as well as our own members we will accomplish a great missionary work in the world.  There will be men and women brought to investigate the principles of the gospel because they will see the kind of fruits in us which this gospel has borne.  Their doors will be opened to us through our civic activities to preach the gospel of the restored kingdom and to bring the same joy and happiness into the hearts of our neighbors with which the Lord has blessed us all our lives." (Henry D.  Moyle, Improvement Era, May 1949, p 330.)

During the study of this topic you will learn more about the duty of all men to be good citizens and good neighbors.

Moroni 10:4-5
  "4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
  5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things."
