There’s a lot of that talk that really interests me. Right now I’m struck by this part:
“No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned; By kindness, and pure knowledge” (D&C 121:41–42).
When priesthood authority is exercised in that way in the patriarchal family, we achieve the “full partnership” President Kimball taught.
So what is it about exercising Priesthood in charity that then allows for a full partnership?
That, is a great question! I like it.
What is it about not having charity that disallows the possibility of a woman having a full partnership?
And again, how is it that when the Priesthood is exercised with charity it allows for that equality, even if the woman and man are not equal in a list of qualities or duties or whatever else? How does it bring her into partnership?
That is a grand question!
