    Boyd K. Packer: Youth were generals in the war in heaven

AUTHOR'S CLAIM


One persistent rumor has Elder Packer claiming that today's youth were "generals" during the pre-mortal "war in heaven."

CONCLUSION


In April 2001, President Packer released the following statement:

We continue to receive reports of the distribution of a quote attributed to me which begins, 'The youth of the Church today were generals in the war in heaven,' and ends with the statement that when they return to heaven 'all in attendance will bow in your presence.'
I did not make that statement. I do not believe that statement.
The statement, on occasion, has been attributed to others of the First Presidency and the Twelve. None of the Brethren made that statement.
