Think about your belief in terms of the Savior or Lucifer. Whose mission does it support? Does your belief that you don’t belong in Relief Society support the Savior’s mission, or is that just what Satan would want you to believe? What about your belief that you have to succeed entirely on your own, that if people really knew you they wouldn’t love you? Isn’t that just what Satan would want you to believe? He wants us to feel “less than,” to feel shameful and unworthy, to feel like we’re on our own.
Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin taught us: “Some are lost because they are different. They feel as though they don’t belong. Perhaps because they are different, they find themselves slipping away from the flock. They may look, act, think, and speak differently than those around them and that sometimes causes them to assume they don’t fit in. They conclude that they are not needed. Tied to this misconception is the erroneous belief that all members of the Church should look, talk, and be alike” (“Concern for the One,” 18; emphasis added).
Do you notice how erroneous beliefs cluster together? The belief that you are completely different from everyone else leads to the belief that you are not needed and is confirmed by the belief that everyone should look, talk, and be alike.
Satan is the father of lies, while Christ is the father of truth.
