Help. I'm in need of a quote. It's a quote from General Conference which says (paraphrased) that in the coming years there will be greater and greater division of the righteous from the wicked. That the righteous will get more righteous and the wicked more wicked, or words to that effect. There must be someone here will have that at their fingertips <grin>.

I, too, remembered that one, but had not been able to remember when. I just did a search and have come up with the following from the April 1983 Conference, Elder Dean L. Larson. It is pretty much as I remembered hearing it. They are wise words with which I have tried to guide my life since then. As he says, it's not always easy. I often see the Saints following a few steps behind (myself included, embarrassed to say).

Thanks, but John provided the quote I was searching for:

The General Conference address that comes to mind is "I Testify" by President Ezra Taft Benson who said in October 1988 conference:
"I testify that as the forces of evil increase under Lucifer's leadership and as the forces of good increase under the leadership of Jesus Christ, there will be growing battles between the two until the final confrontation. As the issues become clearer and more obvious, all mankind will eventually be required to align themselves either for the kingdom of God or for the kingdom of the devil. As these conflicts rage, either secretly or openly, the righteous will be tested. God's wrath will soon shake the nations of the earth and will be poured out on the wicked without measure. (See JS-H 1:45; D&C 1:9.) But God will provide strength for the righteous and the means of escape; and eventually and finally truth will triumph." (See 1 Ne. 22:15-23.)

That's OK. I've been wanting to find that other quote anyway. It's also a keeper. I've referred to it a number of times without having the exact citation. Amazing how consistent the words of the prophets are. Pres ETB doesn't mince any words here, does he? I see that alignment starting to take place. The day of the fence sitter is nearly gone.
