Choose the Right

A hymn sung by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Choose the Right.

The first line sums up what we are all about.
Choose the right, when a choice is placed before you.

Every day, in every way we strive to choose the right.

We choose to follow the Saviour, Jesus Christ.
We choose to believe that the Savior lives and guides His church.
We choose to follow the new revelations he gives to a living prophet who leads the Church.
We choose to read the scriptures.
We choose to help others.
We choose to not have sex outside of marriage.
We choose to live righteously.
We choose not to smoke, drink alcohol, coffee or tea.
We choose not to take illegal drugs.
We choose to follow God, his Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. Three separate and distinct individuals.
We choose to believe that God is our Father. A man with a body of flesh and blood whose image we were created in.
We choose to believe in the Bible.
We choose to believe in the Book of Mormon, another book of scripture that teaches us to follow Christ.
We choose to believe in God.
We choose to believe that God expects us to keep the commandments. Repent of our sins and live good moral lives.
We choose. That is the secret of God's plan. He gives us the choice of whether to keep the commandment, follow Jesus Christ, and believe.
We choose to believe.

We refuse to believe that God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are a mashed into one incomprehensible being that has no body.
We refuse to believe that all that is expected of us is to say we accept Jesus and everything else is done.
We refuse to believe there is no purpose to life.
We refuse to believe that the only reason we are here is to make money and be selfish.
We refuse to not believe.

Is every member of the Church perfect? No.
Is any member perfect? No.
Are we trying to reach that goal? Yes.
