The Elder Bednar Social Media Challenge and Apostolic Promise

“My beloved brothers and sisters, what has been accomplished thus far in this dispensation communicating gospel messages through social media channels is a good beginning—but only a small trickle. I now extend to you the invitation to help transform the trickle into a flood. Beginning at this place on this day, I exhort you to sweep the earth with messages filled with righteousness and truth—messages that are authentic, edifying, and praiseworthy—and literally to sweep the earth as with a flood.”

Elder David A. Bednar speaks during the annual Campus Education Week at the Marriott Center at Brigham Young University, Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014.

Elder David A. Bednar challenges us to turn the social media trickle into a flood that sweeps the earth, and makes an apostolic promise to those who do

“As an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, I invoke this blessing upon you: that you may come to understand more fully the spiritual significance and blessing of living in the dispensation of the fulness of times, that you may have eyes to see clearly both the possibilities and the pitfalls of the remarkable technologies that are available to us today, that you may increase in your capacity to use these inspired tools appropriately, and that you may receive inspiration and guidance about the role you should play in helping to sweep the earth as with a flood of truth and righteousness.”

“As you press forward in this holy work, I promise you will be blessed in mortality in the individual, specific, and necessary ways that will prepare you for eternity. I so bless you.” – Elder David A. Bednar, from his address on August 19, 2014 at Campus Education at BYU
