Voices Speaking to You!

It may be wise to correctly identify a voice that you hear and to whom it is speaking before replying or acting?

Taking a step further, after you accurately identify the voice, the source, the message communicated, and know that it is directly addressing you, would it be valuable for you to determine the level of truth the message carries? Would it matter to you whether it is of full truth or only partial truth accompanied with error and/or personal views and ideas? Would the philosophies of men mingled with scripture have the same value to you as the undiluted and fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

"Behold, I am he who was prepared from the foundation of the world to redeem my people. Behold, I am Jesus Christ. I am the Father and the Son. In me shall all mankind have life, and that eternally, even they who shall believe on my name; and they shall become my sons and my daughters." (Ether 3:14)

I believe Jesus Christ is prepared, has the ability and capacity, is authorized by His Father, and given power before the foundation of the world to save you and me. Is there a difference between such a being and everyone else who has not achieved, is not qualified, and does not possess saving power as He does? Which voice would you want to seek, hear, correctly understand, believe, and act upon? Who do you want to follow, obey, and literally embrace? From whom do you desire to receive revelations, instructions, and covenants? Does it matter to you? Do mortal men, institutions, religions, or organizations suffice for you? Or does it require Jesus Christ Himself for you to be saved?

Ironically, the voice that matters most almost always contradicts our deep rooted traditions, beliefs, religions, and the world and is interpreted by most to be offensive, restrictive, surely untrue, apostate and very unpopular. Which voice do you focus upon and trust? To which source do you give strict heed?
