“I rejoice in the great plan of salvation that is big enough for all of our Father in Heaven’s children.

“A loving Father has provided a comprehensive and compassionate plan for his children ‘that saves the living, redeems the dead, rescues the damned and glorifies all who repent.’  Even though our journey may be fraught with tribulation, the destination is truly glorious.

“Our leaders have consistently counseled us … ‘to live with respect and appreciation for those not of our faith.  There is so great a need for civility and mutual respect among those of differing beliefs and philosophies.’   We should refrain from criticism.  Other Christians do much good, bless mankind, and many help their members learn of the Savior and his teachings.

“It is equally important that we be loving and kind to members of our own faith, regardless of their level of commitment or activity.  The Savior has made it clear that we are not to judge each other.  This is especially true of members of our own families.  Our obligation is to love and teach and never give up.  The Lord has commanded his people that they should persuade all men to repentance.”
