Emergency Preparedness – “. . .that the church may stand independent above all other creatures beneath the celestial worlds.” (D&C 78:14)
(From J. Thomas Fyans, of the Presidency of the First Quorum of the Seventy, Gen Conf., April 3, ‘82.)
“The Church can be no more independent than the collective independence of its individual members. We fear that some may misunderstand the intent of the resources of the welfare program of the Church and fall into a false sense of security that will lead to reduced efforts toward self-sufficiency. . . .All the efforts of the welfare program are directed to helping people become self-sufficient. . . .For the Church, as an organization, to be independent, it would basically have to duplicate the economy of the individual members. This is neither practical, possible, nor prudent. We have all been taught that dependence on the government is not good. Neither is dependence on the Church – that principle runs as deep as free agency itself.”
