It seems to me that the Church emphasizes the basic teachings of the gospel more now than it did when I joined the Church in 1975. If I am remembering correctly, it seems that there were more lessons on deeper doctrine, more doctrinal articles in the Ensign, etc. It could be that as we gain more converts, it is necessary to make sure they are getting a solid foundation in the gospel basics. It could also be that we are not improving on the knowledge that we have and so we aren't being given more, but rather are being retaught the basics because we longtime members don't have as solid a foundation as we should have.
Just speculating here. I know I need to improve on the knowledge I already have and live the gospel more fully. I need to make better choices and develop more patience and so forth.
What did Jesus mean in Matthew 11:16-19 when He said, "But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets and calling unto their fellows, and saying, we have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children."
I had another question about a scripture, but now I can't find it, so it will have to wait.
