Earlier this year, a 19-year old University of Florida student died from alcohol poisoning over spring break, a fraternity at Cornell was suspended after a student was found dead at his frat house in an apparent alcohol-related death and the Tufts University president nixed a decade-long ritual that involved drinking and streaking, saying the blood-alcohol levels of students were at dangerous levels. A CNN columnist reported last month . . . that sexually active teen girls are more than twice as likely to be depressed than those who are not sexually active and nearly three times more likely to commit suicide. College students who have been sexually active also have a harder time when they decide they want to spend the rest of their life with one person, the columnist reported.
Now, I know that the majority of the world (let alone the United States of America) has never heard the Fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but nevertheless, how are the people of this great nation so naive in thinking they can sin and be happy at the same time? This fulfills the words of Samuel the Lamanite and Alma to the contrary, who both respectively state, "Ye have sought for happiness in doing iniquity, which thing is contrary to the nature of that righteousness which is in our great and Eternal Head. (Helaman 13:38)" and "Do not suppose . . . that ye shall be restored [resurrected] from sin to happiness. Behold, I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness. (Alma 41:10)"
