Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spoke in the Marriott Center at Brigham Young University for the monthly Church Educational System fireside.
Besides trying to undermine the family, Satan attempts to undermine the significance of LDS temple ordinances "which bind the family together for eternity," Elder Scott said.
"He does this by constant encouragement to promote promiscuity and to defile the sacred intimate expression of love between a husband and wife that results in the birth of children."
As part of his address, Elder Scott in a discussion setting conversed with Rebecca and Ben Marlowe, a recently married couple. He asked them questions such as how they determine what should be the highest priority for their marriage and how they resolve disagreements.
"We've determined that our priorities are, first, the Lord and the gospel — and that has really helped our marriage — and then each other and the family that we've created together," Rebecca said, "and then everything else just kind of falls into place when you put those things first."
