Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf recently shared on Facebook an adorable, illustrated video accompanying a story from one of his conference talks.
Along with the video, he shared this message:
"Never in the history of the world has it been more important to learn how to correctly discern between truth and error. If you experience a moment of question or doubt, remember that in this age of information there are many who create doubt about anything and everything, at any time and every place.
"Sometimes untrue claims or information are presented in such a way that they appear quite credible. However, when you are confronted with information that is in conflict with the revealed word of God, remember the parable taught in this video.
"We simply don’t know all things—we can’t see everything. What may seem contradictory now may be perfectly understandable as we search for and receive more trustworthy information. Because we see through a glass darkly, we have to trust the Lord, who sees all things clearly."

Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf has earned a reputation among members of the Church for using his decades of experience as a pilot to draw gospel metaphors. He has even joked about the frequency of the phenomenon from the pulpit, once noting that a congregation may be asking, "What does this have to do with an airplane?"His ability to draw on real-life experience and share easily interpreted analogies has endeared him to Church members the world over.
