Mormon Decisions 10Sunstone Magazine, ‘Revival Language in the Book of Mormon,’ May – June 1983, pg 22; “The concept of an infinite atonement was born in a famous theory of the atonement by Anselm of Canterbury in the twelfth century. Anselm believed that God was an infinite being, meaning that he was the ideal projection of every good human quality—God possesses infinite knowledge and wisdom, infinite holiness, and so forth…

…“Nothing less than a sacrifice of infinite merit, can atone for the offences of the whole world.” To deny ‘the necessity of an infinite atonement made by the death and suffering of Jesus Christ… goes to overturn the whole system of the gospel ….’ Old Testament prophecy and teaching are ‘all pointing to the great mediator.’ Because Jesus’ sacrifice was ‘offered upon the altar of his divinity, it acquired infinite value…’

We find portions of the above statements throughout the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon has a unique perspective, but it does utilize traditional language and is in fact part of that tradition following Anselm.” – Mark Thomas

October 31 – Ephesians 4:11-14; “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.”

October 30 – 2 Timothy 4:2-4; “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

Mormon Decisions 10General Conference, ‘Approaching the Throne of God with Confidence’, October 2014; “Become really, really good at forgiving. “I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men” (D&C 64:10). Forgive everyone, everything, all the time, or at least strive to do so, thus allowing forgiveness into your own life. Don’t hold grudges, don’t be easily offended, forgive and forget quickly, and don’t ever think that you are exempt from this commandment. Spiritual confidence increases when you know that the Lord knows that you bear no ill feelings toward another soul.” – Jörg Klebingat
