Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 2, pp. 349-358 Day 106

Chapter 40—Self-Deceived Youth Brother O, I have been shown in vision the dangers of youth. Your case was presented before me. I saw that you had not adorned your profession. You might have done good, and your example might have been a blessing to the youth with whom you have associated; but, alas! your inmost…
