A new Mormon Message will be released this week, based on Dieter F. Uchtdorf’s talk, What Is Truth? In this talk, Elder Uchtdorf shares John Godfrey Saxe’s poem Blind Men and the Elephant, and the video the church has created powerfully illustrates why so many in the world are battling over their differing opinions.
What Is Truth?
Elder Uchtdorf released the Mormon Message video today on his Facebook page, with the following brief summary:
Never in the history of the world has it been more important to learn how to correctly discern between truth and error. If you experience a moment of question or doubt, remember that in this age of information there are many who create doubt about anything and everything, at any time and every place.
Sometimes untrue claims or information are presented in such a way that they appear quite credible. However, when you are confronted with information that is in conflict with the revealed word of God, remember the parable taught in this video.
We simply don’t know all things—we can’t see everything. What may seem contradictory now may be perfectly understandable as we search for and receive more trustworthy information. Because we see through a glass darkly, we have to trust the Lord, who sees all things clearly.
