So, question. What are the 14 F's people keep talking about?
The 14 Fundamentals - something that should be burned, buried and forgotten. In other words, don't ask.
Best not to ask because someone here has a very visceral reaction to the 14F...

A research here will pull up several threads.

Oh. I just found them. Yeah, some of them I take great issue with. And others are great in theory but in practice? Not so great. . .

I said this in another post, but I'm not even sure I'm a 1 F kind of guy.
In the absence of knowledge or faith there is always hope.
Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."

I think Elder Benson envied Elder Maxwell and was looking for a way to include some alliteration in his talk. 4 Fundamentals didn't take his entire time allocation, so he added 10 more to get to 14 Fundamentals. Afterward, I think he realized he'd stretched the point beyond recognition, so he never tried something like that again.
Yeah, that's what I think. Yeah, that's it. Yeah. yeah. yea . . . ye . . . y . . .

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.
