President Howard W. Hunter:

“The world is FULL of people who are willing to tell us, "Do as I say." Surely we have no lack of advice givers on about every subject. But we have so few who are prepared to say, "Do as I do." And, of course, ONLY ONE IN HUMAN HISTORY COULD RIGHTFULLY AND PROPERLY MAKE THAT DECLARATION. Even the best of MORTALS are flawed in some way or another. NONE could serve as a perfect model nor as an INFALLIBLE PATTERN TO FOLLOW, however well-intentioned they might be. ONLY CHRIST CAN BE OUR IDEAL. ONLY HE CAN SAY WITHOUT ANY RESERVATION, "FOLLOW ME, LEARN OF ME. I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. I AM THE LAW AND THE LIGHT. LOOK UNTO ME AND YE SHALL LIVE." LET US FOLLOW THE SON OF GOD IN ALL WAYS. LET US MAKE HIM OUR GUIDE. We must KNOW Christ better than we know him; then will we drink water springing up unto ETERNAL LIFE.” (First Message as President of Church, Ensign - Sept 1994, pg. 4-5
