Testing the words of LDS leaders with Biblical Truth:
Young Women Manual 2
OBJECTIVE: Each young woman will seek to do her share of the work in the home.
* The LDS Gospel is a gospel of work (page 24):
Have someone read this statement: “I do not believe people can be happy unless they have work to do. One can really be more of a slave to idleness than to work. Work also keeps us humble and reminds us of how all our blessings come to us from our Heavenly Father. …
“The gospel of work is a very important teaching of the Church. If we learn to work early in life we will be better individuals, better members of families, better neighbors, and better disciples of Jesus Christ, who Himself learned to work as a carpenter”.
Encourage each young woman to find and do some job around her home that needs to be done, in addition to her regular assigned jobs. Ask each to report on how she and others felt when she did this extra job without being required to.
Test these LDS Words with Biblical Truth:
About five years ago God gave me the blessing of sharing Christ with an LDS woman. Her name is Launa and I had the pleasure of seeing her come to faith and grow in that faith. When reading this lesson, I was reminded of something she said to me once:
“Mormonism is a never-ending treadmill to nowhere!”
What a joy she experienced when she learned that through Jesus she had rest for her soul. Jesus has done all the work required to gain eternal life. His work was accomplished over two thousand years ago–we are blessed to serve Him all our lives. Our meager efforts at serving God somehow bring Him pleasure.
