Solutions to the World’s Problems

President Dieter F Uchtdorf, Receiving a Testimony of Light and Truth, October 2014 General Conference
“The Apostle Paul taught a parallel principle regarding spiritual knowledge. ‘The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God,’ he wrote to the Corinthians, ‘for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.’12

“In other words, if you want to recognize spiritual truth, you have to use the right instruments. You can’t come to an understanding of spiritual truth with instruments that are unable to detect it.”

My Thoughts
We can not understand the world's problems or the solution to them if we take God out of the equation.

While we try to figure it out by ourselves we argue and debate endlessly.

“The more we incline our hearts and minds toward God, the more heavenly light distills upon our souls. And each time we willingly and earnestly seek that light, we indicate to God our readiness to receive more light. Gradually, things that before seemed hazy, dark, and remote become clear, bright, and familiar to us.”
