I always have enjoyed General Conference, but this time was especially meaningful.

Not only did I get to once again visit my family in Salt Lake City, including my mother, father, and brother who just flew in from overseas in time for me to visit with them, but I also got to relax and chill out over the weekend.

So what I want to do here in this post is highlight a few of the talks that especially impressed me.

Saturday Morning Session "The Cost—and Blessings—of Discipleship" by Elder Jeffrey R.

Holland General Conference began with a bang as Elder Holland took the podium to blast the popular misconception that Jesus was some kind of 1st century hippie who was all about love and tolerance and not at all about keeping commandments and forsaking sin.

Sadly enough, my young friends, it is a characteristic of our age that if people want any gods at all, they want them to be gods who do not demand much, comfortable gods, smooth gods who not only don’t rock the boat but don’t even row it, gods who pat us on the head, make us giggle, then tell us to run along and pick marigolds.

Jesus clearly understood what many in our modern culture seem to forget: that there is a crucial difference between the commandment to forgive sin (which He had an infinite capacity to do) and the warning against condoning it (which He never ever did even once). Pure Christlike love flowing from true righteousness can change the world.

I testify that the true and living gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth and you are members of His true and living Church, trying to share it.I bear witness of that gospel and that Church, with a particular witness of restored priesthood keys which unlock the power and efficacy of saving ordinances.I can think of some very specific individuals both inside the Church who want to promote this "Divine Butler and Cosmic Therapist" deity who "is always on call, takes care of any problems that arise, professionally helps his people feel better about themselves, and does not become too personally involved in the process."[1] They want to turn the Church of Jesus Christ, with its attending commandments and moral requirements, into a nice social club that doesn't require any level of discipleship or dedication.Of course, Elder Holland isn't saying that Jesus isn't loving or forgiving, only that the contemporary image of Christ as one who doesn't ask anything from us disciples is mistaken.Christlike love is the greatest need we have on this planet in part because righteousness was always supposed to accompany it.So if love is to be our watchword, as it must be, then by the word of Him who is love personified, we must forsake transgression and any hint of advocacy for it in others.
