    In a general conference address in April 1972, Elder Ezra Taft Benson stated: “God, the Father of us all, uses the men [and women] of the earth, especially good [people], to accomplish his purposes. It has been true in the past, it is true today, it will be true in the future.”

    Elder Benson then quoted the following from Elder Orson F. Whitney in a 1928 general conference: “Perhaps the Lord needs such [persons] on the outside of His Church to help it along. They are among its auxiliaries, and can do more good for the cause where the Lord has placed them, than anywhere else. . . . Some are drawn into the fold and receive a testimony of the truth; while others remain unconverted. . . the beauties and glories of the gospel being veiled temporarily from their view, for a wise purpose. The Lord will open their eyes in His own due time.” Now note this particularly poignant message: “God is using more than one people for the accomplishment of His great and marvelous work. The Latter-day Saints cannot do it all. It is too vast, too arduous for any one people.”
