SL10323: Getting It Right: Changes in the Gospel Principles Manual from 1979 to 2009

This paper examines teachings in the 1979 Gospel Principles manual that have been eliminated, revised, or downplayed in the manual currently used in Sunday classes. Included are teachings about abortion, fasting, following the prophet, the responsibility of women to keep a “clean” house, the Word of Wisdom, rape, the roles of men and women, and even the need to bathe often in “fresh water.”
