The Great Plan of the Eternal God
Elder Neal A. Maxwell
April 1984

Hence, in submitting knowingly and meekly to this plan, we cannot say to the Lord that we are willing to surrender but only on our terms. There are no conditions in unconditional surrender!

Even with all of its interior consistency, however, the plan cannot bring true happiness to anyone whose life is grossly inconsistent with its standards. It cannot fully enfold him who is too worried about being taken in. It has no place of honor for one too concerned with losing his place in the secular synagogue. (See John 12:42–43.) . .

Truly, of all the errors mortals could make, God’s plan of salvation is the wrong thing to be wrong about!
