A book review, with some thoughts!

I just finished the Giver and I loved it. I have read Number the Stars by the same author and I really liked it and I love futuristic books and so I figured I would like this too.

And this book brings out so many good points, why was their society like that? and how did they come to that. It's because they got to where they had a nice, pushing, BRAINWASHING leader/dictator/president etc. and he got them on the wrong path and eventually got them where they were in the book.

This got me thinking.

We could be just like that.

Lets, see, we have the "nice pushing, BRAINWASHING" president, our society is becoming like that, we're on that track!

But, do we want to be like that? Do we want to not have any agency, to all be the same?

Our heavenly father gave us things that can't be taken away. Yet they try. And the Lord is with us and we overcome it again. It happens over and over, but we are weakened, people leave the church, they find less and less value in doing what's right(and hard) and start doing what's wrong(and easy).


We can defeat the darkness, but it will be hard, it will take work, but we can do it.

Yet, we don't even try, we are too diluted by the world to even care.

We are just trying to be cool, and blend in, act and dress just like our friends but on Sunday morning we go to Church and we pretend that we did what was right all week, but as soon as We leave Church we change our Clothes(usually into somthing immodest) and go hang out with friends for the rest of the day.

“Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” (1 Pet. 2:9.)

You were chosen before birth to come to earth at this time,

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the aLord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest

As it says here(above), the Lord is with you.

Moroni 7: 31 angels declare word of Christ to chosen vessels that they may bear testimony of him.

I hope we can all try better to do what is right, to fight those battles. And to contribute to the fight for righteousness.
