Why should I take it seriously?

I’ve been sitting on a leaked 2013 general conference training session delivered to general authorities (by general authorities): Special Witnesses of Christ and His Atonement. It can be accessed here. The talks and presentation are typically dry and boring.

But I did notice something very interesting.

Throughout the videos we see the audience of 70s, a rather large number of them have dozed off or are in the process of dozing off. They must not care that Elder Holland, a genuine apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, is speaking the very words of Christ.

If they aren’t taking this serious, why should we? If you believed someone to be an authentic witness of the physical resurrection, animated by the Spirit of God, was speaking new scripture would you pay attention?

These are some of the men you need to sustain to enter the Celestial Kingdom.
