Current Lessons Index
We live in an interesting, complex, and changing world in which there is much good and also much evil. These Current Lessons are intended to be a commentary on many of the important issues of our time. They will address a variety of topics with no common theme. However, the common thread of the gospel will tie them all together.
The word gospel means “good news.” It is hoped that these lessons will, in a small way, promote the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Principles of Good Government
We are currently in the process of electing the next President of the United States. Considering the importance of this office it would be well to consider what the Lord has said about the Constitution, elections, and candidates. At a difficult time in our history the Lord told his people that they should befriend the constitutional law of the land, and that honest, wise, and good men and women should be supported for public offices. (See D&C 98:5-10) President Ezra Taft Benson further explained:
“Note the qualities that the Lord demands in those who are to represent us. They must be good, wise, and honest. Some leaders may be honest and good but unwise in legislation they choose to support. Others may possess wisdom but be dishonest and unvirtuous. We must be concerted in our desires and efforts to see men and women represent us who possess all three of these qualities” (Ezra Taft Benson, The Constitution – A Heavenly Banner, p. 30).
It is my desire to publish Lessons that speak to public policies that are consistent with Gospel principles. I will also give examples of public leaders from the past who have been both honest, wise, and good.
