RiseUp is a show geared towards Young Adults in seeking to find answers to questions about LDS (Mormon) culture and doctrine. But the podcast is also meant to provide help, courage, and direction for those wanting to defend their beliefs and testimony.
In this episode of RiseUp, host Nick Galieti uses a metaphorical game show to introduce the challenge of defending our beliefs and in providing answers, as well as the importance of establishing a strong testimony to be an anchor when such challenges arise.
Using the article, The Do’s and Don’ts of Defending Your Beliefs by David A. Edwards (posted on LDS.org) we learn some fundamental approaches to the challenge of finding courage to defend our beliefs with friends and neighbors.
I’ve listened to a couple of episodes so far. Thanks for putting this together.
On one of the episodes one of the presenters made a comment along the lines of “When God calls a prophet, He doesn’t release the man”. I think the person said it was by David O McKay.
Can anyone confirm the quote, and provide the source?
That quote was actually given by Russell Stevenson when he was interviewed for a non-RiseUp Podcast. (Thank you for listening to that one as well). The original quote was given by David O. McKay in April 1962. Here is a link to the transcript of that presentation. http://scriptures.byu.edu/gettalk.php?ID=1180
The quote I was looking for was “Someone has said that when God makes the prophet, he does not unmake the man”. Love it!
