President Gordon B. Hinckley, in his dedicatory prayer on the Joseph Smith Building on December 10, 1991, said:

“We pray for those who [take religion classes], that their minds may be enlightened, that their understanding may be quickened, that they may learn those things which will bless their lives in the world of which they will become a part, and, in a more particular way, that they may become familiar with the truth which is eternal in its nature and everlasting in its consequences.
