The Articles of Faith part 13 of 13

Article of Faith #13, "We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul--We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things."

These are some great attributes of Christ. These are the things that we are all trying to perfect. I love the admonition of Paul, as we read in the bible it states, "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be and praise, think of these things." (Philippians 4:8) We can tell those who are trying to be true followers of Jesus Christ as they try to be more like him, and to have the same attributes as him.
