“Combatting Spiritual Drift – Our Global Pandemic.”

Elder Russell M. Nelson

Address given at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Chicago, Illinois on 2 Sept. 1993

“…there have been notable advances in virtually every field of human endeavor. Think of the progress made in transportation, communication, commerce, agriculture, medicine, science, and electronics.

But spiritual progress has lagged behind. We see evidences of increasing ethnic strife and hatred. Nationalism seems to be taking priority over brotherly love. Violence and civil wars are raging.”
