We live in a world where many people think there is a form of government that will change the lives of all who live in it and will make bad people into good through force and coercion. Ezra Taft Benson believed that God had a different approach.
Ezra Taft Benson said “The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ would take slums out of people and then they would take themselves out of the slums. The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior but christ can change human nature.” Ezra Taft Benson further stated that “Christ changes men and changed men can change the world.”
