Every community of believers experiences trial during its history. What actions should we take.
The scriptures exhort us "Examine yourselves, whether Ye b generation is put to the test and every brother and sister is tried. In such times how do we know how to react. When controversies arise, strong feelings are often expressed and many despair at what to do, wanting to do the right thing, but not sure we in the faith; prove your own selves...." it is with this principle in mind this study has been conducted."
