Chad said: Do you realize that the talk you link to does not contain the quote that's in the picture? In fact, can you provide me a citation to the talk when Elder Holland said what's quoted in the picture? I cannot seem to find it.

Hi Chad, yes I knew when I posted the picture to the talk that the quote wasn't in it. I used the picture I found on Pinterest because it has a similar message. In my research of this quote this is what I was able to find from John Bytheway and quoted/referenced in his book "When Times Are Tough" said:
John related that he had heard a Jeffrey R Holland quote about the outcome of the world has already been decided, but we need to choose which side we will be on.
He wanted to quote it, but first, he wanted to authenticate it.
Unable to find it in his own research, he called Elder Holland’s office. The secretary did not know the quote, but said she would ask Elder Holland.
John B. thought that was the end of that. Weeks later he got an email from Elder Holland, acknowledging that he did indeed say what John heard him say and offering to write it and authenticate if for John. And signed the email, “Jeff”. !!!
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland: “The future of this world has long been declared; the final outcome between good and evil is already known. There is absolutely no question as to who wins because the victory has already been posted on the scoreboard. The only really strange thing in all of this is that we are still down here on the field trying to decide which team’s jersey we want to wear!”
