President Eyring on Technology

by Larry Richman on August 23, 2011

“The Lord’s plan is to advance ever more rapidly His word and His works and the effects of His gospel throughout the world,” President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency, said.

He noted that the Lord “has revealed the technology that enables the Church to take full advantage of these advances,” but added that while technology can and does bless lives, “never forget that while we have computers, cameras, microphones, fiber-optic networks, clouds, and satellites, we have failed if we do not rely on the Holy Ghost.”

He said, “If our technology does not improve the lives of others and help bring them home to [the Lord], we have missed the mark.”

President Eyring made the comments at the dedication of the Broadcasting Building and the Information Technology Building at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, on Friday, August 12, 2011. Sources: LDS.org and LDS Newsroom

How have you recently used technology in your personal or church life that furthered the work of the Lord?
