I also have an older essay, "Is Human Population Really the Problem?"
Prophetically anticipating later worries about overpopulation and the alleged scarcity of resources, the Lord declares:
And it is my purpose to provide for my saints, for all things are mine.
But it must needs be done in mine own way; and behold this is the way that I, the Lord, have decreed to provide for my saints, that the poor shall be exalted, in that the rich are made low.
For the earth is full, and there is enough and to spare; yea, I prepared all things, and have given unto the children of men to be agents unto themselves. (Doctrine and Covenants 104:15-17)
