I have a few folks I have tolerated fact checking on this blog. I like openness - and love learning. I even like contrarian opinions. Nothing good comes out of a uni-polar vacuum. God operates in a world where there is opposition in all things - but where good principle (yes, you moral relativists out there; there ARE moral ABSOLUTES......

Basically she was talking about preparedness to Relief Society Leaders in the Tabernacle and then said: Self Reliance Sister Julie B. Beck Relief Society Training March 2010. "Now we’re living in some tough times. I’ll just walk you through a couple of scriptures.This is in Matthew 24 where Jesus was talking about our day. He said “Ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye not be troubled. For all these things must come to pass and the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. And there shall be famines and pestilences on
