The LDS Daily WOOL© Archive - The Thirteenth Article of Faith


(4/5/02)
"We must resist the wrong fashions of the world. The thirteenth Article of Faith does not say that we believe in all things that are popular, fashionable, ugly and sensual, and that we seek after these things! Rather, 'We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men.' And these attributes depend on each other. [A of F 1:13]" — Neal A. Maxwell, "The Stern but Sweet Seventh Commandment," New Era, June 1979, p. 40-41

(4/6/02)
"Our thirteenth article of faith commits us to seek after things that are 'virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy.' The language of Latter-day Saints should be reverent and clean. We understand the eternal requirement of cleanliness, and we understand the sacred significance of the names of the Father and the Son." — Dallin H. Oaks, "Reverent and Clean," Ensign, May 1986, p. 52

(4/7/02)
"Even seeking after things which are praiseworthy or lovely is accelerated by believing all the Articles of Faith which precede article thirteen. Similarly, the followers of the Ten Commandments are not divided into two vast platoons--one specializing in the 'thou shalts' and the other in the 'thou shalt nots.'" — Neal A. Maxwell, "Answer Me," Ensign, Nov. 1988, p. 31

(4/8/02)
"I am grateful for the cultural refinement that comes into Latter-day Saint homes as the mothers are able to draw upon their experiences in the Church to add to the serenity of our homes. Especially is this true if we approach these things in the spirit of the thirteenth Article of Faith: 'If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.' [A of F 1:13]" — Spencer W. Kimball, "Privileges and Responsibilities of Sisters," "Ensign," Nov. 1978, p. 105

(4/9/02)
"Honesty... is the first virtue mentioned in the Thirteenth Article of Faith. It is founded on the first principles of human society and is the foundation principle of moral manhood." — David O. McKay, "Treasures of Life," p. 455

4/3/12
There is much that is difficult and challenging in the world today, my brothers and sisters, but there is also much that is good and uplifting. As we declare in our thirteenth article of faith, “If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.” May we ever continue to do so. - Thomas S. Monson, "As We Gather Once Again," Ensign, (CR) May 2012
