What is the difference between something being true and something being an eternal truth?
This question has led many faithful members of the Church to be deceived by the semblances of the world into denying the truths that transcend our mortal experiences. In every aspect of life-babies, bodies, marriage, and more-there are thousands of ways we can be misled by society's standards of "true" instead of embracing the truth.
Drawing from the words of God and His appointed leaders as well as personal experience, Church educator and historian Ronald Bartholomew describes how members of the Church can learn to see the difference by increasing their spirituality. With this enlightening guide to seeking and interpreting revelation, you will discover how to• identify and ignore Satan's subtle lies about normal, everyday things.• hear and follow God's will for your life without distractions.• gently coach your loved ones toward eternal truths.
When you can reliably disregard the "more or less true" in favor of God's truth, you will gain a deeper understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which will enrich your testimony of the Church and strengthen your bond with the Holy Spirit.
