The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 76 : August 20, 1914 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 76: August 20, 1914 Latter-day Saints, which has a special application to the every day life of members of the Church, is couched in the following language: We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul, We believe all things, we hope all things; we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is any thing virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. In strict conformity to the religious belief expressed in the fore going, the person who may hold a membership in the Church, but who may not be rigidly honest, is not accepted as in complete fellowship. While among the people generally, their character for honesty in their business dealings is a matter of national repute. There is no community which stands higher. In its credit upon this point than do the Mormon people; and it is due to their religious obligations to be honest and true. In the matter of benevolence, also, the saints as a body give illustration of their faith in that regard. The care that is given to the poor, the mutual assistance they render to each other, the aid and consolation they seek to extend to all people, and their liberality in giving of means to forward the cause of salvation, combine to make up a work of stupendous proportions, considering the untoward circumstances the saints have had to experience.
