Angels Round About You

As a missionary, I used this scripture* to justify all sorts of stupid activity (for example, this scripture and the daily multi-vitamins I took pretty much excused me for having a very unhealthy diet for 22 months (I kid about the food at the MTC, but at least I was exposed to all of the food groups)). I would imagine high school students armed with this scripture could get into a lot of trouble.

That's why it is problematic that this particular gag shows up in the inaugural issue of the For the Strength of Youth magazine. While I'm honored that I'm featured in the first issue of the Church's new youth magazine (the New Era was retired after 50 years!), I do feel a little guilty that I'm exposing the youth of the Church to such a dangerous idea.

*Doctrine and Covenants 84:88.
