Man is More Than This – Spencer W. Kimball

Called Unto Liberty, 20th Century Sermons, Spencer W. Kimball

“The group that tolerates sexual anarchy is endangering its very survival,” says sociologist Sorokin.

One prominent voice booms out that there are many steepled edifices in which the word sin has not been mentioned for a long time, and a preachment against it cannot be remembered.

In direct contrast to the permissive voices above comes a voice of authority from the Lord’s church:

“… Man is a biological unit,” said President J. Reuben Clark, Jr., “an animal, but he is more than this, he is the temple of an immortal spirit; that spirit can be defiled by the flesh, and defilement comes when the laws of chastity are violated.

“Our very civilization itself is based upon chastity, the sanctity of marriage, and the holiness of the home. Destroy these and Christian man becomes a brute.

“… the family relationship continues through eternity. It is the loftiest and most sacred human relationship we know.” (Conference Report, October 1938, p. 137.)
