(by Dennis B. Horne)
Today we have deception cunningly making its way into the Church and attacking faithful people and families, not only in regard to false doctrine about the origin of man but also concerning LGBT practices and activism, and various other strange and seducing doctrines of men and devils (see D&C 46:7). The below comments mostly relate to evolution but can apply to other methods Satan uses to infiltrate the Church, much of it from within. BYU biologists, NAMI, and the editors of BYUSQ are tragically at great fault here, pitting their worldly learning against the revelations of God. The Brethren warn and warn again against listening to or believing these counterfeit doctrines.
President J. Reuben Clark Jr.:
It seems sometimes as if the darkness that surrounds us is all but impenetrable. I can see on all sides the signs of one great evil master-mind [Satan] working for the overturning of our civilization, the destruction of religion, the reduction of men to the status of animals. This mind is working here and there and everywhere. (Conference Report, October 1935, 92; emphasis added.)
