The Family: A Proclamation To The World Part Five...
The Leaders of the church I belong to have issued a Proclamation to the World about the Family.
I belong to The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. I am a Mormon.
This year it is my goal to memorize this proclamation. If you would like to hear why I am memorizing this please visit my first post here. And the second part here. And the third part here. And the fourth part here.
If you chose to memorize this with me and at the end of the year if you post a video of you repeating it like I will; I have a special project that I am doing that you will get in your inbox. It will be worth it. Believe me. It will be something to treasure forever.
So this week. Here is the fifth part we will be memorizing. You can do it. Trust me, if I can do it. Anyone can do it! Don't forget the first, second, and third parts that we memorized last week! Each week just keep adding to what you have memorized!
Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose.
What? That's short. Yes, it is. The words can kind of get confusing in this part. Easy to mix up, for me anyways. So focus on just this one line this week and get it down pack. It's important.
Don't forget to add it to what you have learned the last four weeks so by the end of the week you have them memorized together. Here is what we should have so far...
A Proclamation To The Family
The First Presidency And Council Of The Twelve Apostles Of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints
We, The First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
ALL HUMAN BEINGS-- male and female--are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose.
