Today's Maxwell Quote

From  A More Excellent Way (1967), 5-6:
Two very significant influences are converging on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in our time when much of mankind seems trapped "between two ages." The first of these is the increasing uniqueness of Church doctrine. This is not because our doctrine has changed but because there is a kind of recessional underway through much (but not all) of Christianity in which some of the core teachings of Christ are being abandoned or revamped in such a way that we may reach a state of relative theological isolation. There are not too many today who would join us in affirming to the world that Jesus Christ is the literal, resurrected Son of God. Some have constructed a "consensus" Christ who is a revered teacher; but to us and others he is certainly much more than a great moral teacher.
