The following is from an email I received yesterday which was the inspiration for the above meme.

“In the early days of this church as soon as the Lord invited the saints to bring about Zion he referred to the place as "Zion" and the people as "children of Zion". He commanded them to do many things and they were obedient for a time. 

In December 1833 he told them they had "lost their inheritance in Zion" and then he told them the specific sins that had caused them to lose their inheritance. The list is found in D&C 101:6-7.

“Behold, I say unto you, there were jarrings, and contentions, and envyings, and strifes, and lustful and covetous desires among them; therefore by these things they polluted their inheritances. They were slow to hearken unto the voice of the Lord their God; therefore, the Lord their God is slow to hearken unto their prayers, to answer them in the day of their trouble.”

If you want to lose your inheritance in Zion be contentious, accuse others, be jealous, be stingy, desire what others have, judge others, seek for your own welfare and let the other guy fend for himself. Lastly, do things your way rather than Gods way. That's how we lose our inheritance in Zion. 

There is hope for us if we are kind, courteous, respectful, think of others welfare, allow others to be themselves rather than judge and condemn them. In short, loving our neighbor and God.”

I might add one more to the Pro-Zion sign... Forgive others. :)
