Better Die


Excerpt from an October 1938 General Conference Address by J. Reuben Clark, Jr: 1

“You young people—May I directly entreat you to be chaste. Please believe me when I say that chastity is worth more than life itself. This is the doctrine my parents taught me; it is truth. Better die chaste than live unchaste. The salvation of your very souls is concerned in this.”
