We live in a world of technological fancy, with informational advances that would be topics of science fiction and never truly taken seriously if we attempted to relay and try to explain life as it is lived today using technology, in the dawn of the twentieth century. With all these possibilities, is it any wonder that we are under constant attack by our adversary whom Nephi called "the enemy of my soul." (See 2 Nephi 4:28)
The good news, is I found a reputable, infused with good standards, wholesome and family oriented place to set up an E-Mail account that I could trust. In all my dealings with Deseret Bookstore, I finally paid attention to some of their ads on the side which mentioned a E-Mail site, which also had a magazine and was ideal for people whom had it with the days of AOL, YAHOO or MSN. They are called LDS LIVING MAGAZINE.
Their website is http://www.ldsliving.com , and I have had the greatest pleasure of using their free E-Mail service to help filter out (In my experience) better than any other E-Mail company had prior, all the junk and garbage that seemed to still get to my inbox when I used other E-Mail companies. Long story short, I can affirm to you their dedication to protecting you from the trash that (earlier referred to as) "the enemy of our souls" wishes to land in our inbox.
Many General Authorities have cautioned us about the war that Satan has been waging on us continually in trying to make us stumble upon habits that will destroy our souls. It was Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of The Twelve Apostles at this past conference (The 180th Annual Conference) who said,
"Most days we all find ourselves assaulted by immoral messages of some kind flooding in on us from every angle. The darker sides of the movie, television, and music industry step further and further into offensive language and sexual misconduct. Tragically, the same computer and Internet service that allows me to do my family history and prepare those names for temple work could, without filters and controls, allow my children or grandchildren access to a global cesspool of perceptions that could blast a crater in their brains forever."
If you find yourself heading for a change of venue, and are possibly wanting to set up a new E-Mail account with a tad more confidence under your belt that you have the slight edge over those whom Satan employs to destroy our souls, I'd gladly endorse LDSLiving and the E-Mail they offer. If not for you, perhaps maybe that teenager, or pre-teen who wishes to get their own E-Mail account; Take confidence in knowing that LDSLiving is there for you.
In this great war that Satan has declared against us, and the precious Spirits of our children, let us not only use filters, parental controls, scriptures, gospel principles, teachings of the prophets and several tools alike those just named, but let us take a firm and confident stand in the means that good people inspired of God of created in "Using All The Resources We Can" to beat back the adversary. May the Lord bless us all in this work of protecting ourselves, and the precious spirits of those we are responsible for, and guide us in all we do. That is my prayer, and the reason I wrote this blogging entry...In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
