"For nearly six thousand years, God has held you in reserve to make your appearance in the final days before the Second Coming of the Lord. Every previous gospel dispensation has drifted into apostasy,
 but ours will not...
 God has saved for the final inning some of his strongest children, who will help bear off the Kingdom triumphantly. And that is where you come in, for you are the generation that must be prepared to meet your God.
All through the ages the prophets have looked down through the corridors of time to our day. Billions of the deceased and those yet to be born have their eyes on us.
 Make no mistake about it—you are a marked generation. There has never been more expected of the faithful in such a short period of time as there is of us..."
-Ezra Taft Benson "In His Steps" 1979
