38,253. How do you spread a faith-promoting falsehood while not verbally lying?
When Tom Monson was worshipping Joseph Smith this morning, he talked about the miraculous translation of the Book of Mormon that took place in under 90 days. To further the idea that the translation was miraculous, he showed a painting of Joseph Smith dictating from the plates by candlelight. Oliver Cowdery is sitting on the other side of the table, his view of the golden plates unobstructed as he transcribed.

37,868. I like the way the church has coordinated and fully correlated the activities of the young with the instruction we provide in the Aaronic Priesthood ... so that it’s one boy, and one troop, one church and one program. Thomas S Monson
38,277. My faith did not come to me through science, and I will not permit so-called science to destroy it. (Mormons & Mormons: Monson & Faith) Thomas S Monson, article Ensign February 2001, ‘The Lighthouse of the Lord: A Message to the Youth of the Church’
37,854. Now, a word of caution to all – both young and old, both male and female. We live at a time when the adversary is using every means possible to ensnare us in his web of deceit, trying desperately to take us down with him. There are many pathways along which he entices us to go – pathways that can lead to our destruction.
Advances in many areas that can be used for our good can also be used to speed us along that heinous pathway. I feel to mention one in particular, and that is the internet. On one hand, it provides nearly limitless opportunities for acquiring useful and important information. Through it we can communicate with others around the world. Thomas Monson, general conference April 2009

38,156. I am certain that our dear Heavenly Father looks down upon his children with perhaps a glint of tear in His eye, as He sees so many disregarding the prophetic counsel against slovenly and immodest dress ... I have spent many nights on my knees, praying for guidance as to how I can help the brethren overcome a serious problem. I speak, of course, of the unkempt and often askew collars of our dress shirts. Many are the times when I’ve sat on the stand in a priesthood meeting and found my spirit troubled by crooked collars. Often the collar doesn’t even cover the tie wrapped around the neck. And, difficult as it may be to believe, some brethren cannot even be troubled to button the top button of their shirts. Surely the Spirit is grieved when the brethren of the Holy Priesthood take such a casual attitude toward their responsibilities.
