The Reason for a Title

In the Book of Mormon, a Righteous and Fearless leader rent his own coat to create a title to which the people could look for a cause: "And it came to pass that he rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it—In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children—and he fastened it upon the end of a pole." Alma 46:12

In these modern times, we too must raise our own "titles" to remember what we are fighting for. And so i name my blog thus: "What Greater Work is There?" because there is no greater work than the salvation of souls, and no one else capable of answering such a call as a modern Army of God. This is god's work.

"Brethren, shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceedingly glad. Let the earth break forth into singing. Let the dead speak forth anthems of eternal praise to the King Immanuel, who hath ordained, before the world was, that which would enable us to redeem them out of their prison; for the prisoners shall go free." Doctrine and Covenants 128:22
