Proclamation on the Family
Elder Russell M. Nelson
Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
"A decade ago the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, foreseeing this spiritual slide, prepared a proclamation to the world on the family. It is even more relevant today. We proclaim 'that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children. . . .'
"If you will heed that proclamation, brothers and sisters, you will be blessed. God lives and loves us (see 1 Nephi 11:16-17). With His help, we can foster our faith and families. We can qualify for this promise from the Lord: 'If a man marry a wife by my word, . . . and by the new and everlasting covenant, and it is sealed unto them by the Holy Spirit of promise, . . . [they] shall inherit thrones, kingdoms, principalities, . . . powers, [and] dominions' (D&C 132:19)."
Please help preserve and protect marriage between a man and a woman, the way God ordained it. If you live in California, please vote yes on prop 8 and if you're in Arizona please vote YES on 102! Let us be a God-fearing people. The Family: A Proclamation to the World
Blessings to all!
