I don’t know anything about this, but I Googled and found this:
Mormon Apostle and apologist Bruce McConkie warns: “I shall speak of our relationship with the Lord and of the true fellowship all saints should have with the Father. I shall set forth what we must believe relative to the Father and the Son in order to gain eternal life…many false and vain and foolish things are being taught in the sectarian world and even among us about our need to gain a special relationship with the Lord Jesus…gaining a special relationship with Christ is both improper and perilous…now I know that some may be offended at the counsel that they should NOT strive for a special and personal relationship with Christ…you have been warned, and you have heard the true doctrine taught” (from a speech given at a B.Y.U. devotional on March 2, 1982).
Again, I have not verified this source. It’s just something I found.
