flowers-cartoon-8As you may already know, April and October are Conference months for the Mormon Church. For one weekend in each of these months various church leaders, from every organization in the Church give talks to their fellow church members via satellite, the internet, or in person at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City, UT. For the months of November and May the Visiting Teachers in the Church are to scan the General Conferences talks in the Ensign (a Church publication) for one that catches their eye, and use it as their message to the women they visit that month.

Mormon Decisions 10General Conference, October 2001, “The Atonement Our Greatest Hope”; “The Atonement cleanses us of sin on condition of our repentance. Repentance is the condition on which mercy is extended. After all we can do to pay to the uttermost farthing and make right our wrongs, the Savior’s grace is activated in our lives through the Atonement, which purifies us and can perfect us. Christ’s Resurrection overcame death and gave us the assurance of life after death.” – James E. Faust

Mormon Decisions 10Conference Report, October 1953, pg 35; “Jesus then went into the Garden of Gethsemane. There he suffered most. He suffered greatly on the cross, of course, but other men had died by crucifixion; in fact, a man hung on either side of him as he died on the cross. But no man, nor set of men, nor all men put together, ever suffered what the Redeemer suffered in the garden. He went there to pray and suffer’”. – Marion Romney, LDS First Presidency

Atonement

Mormon Decisions 10Gospel Principles, pg 233; “The Atonement of Jesus Christ assures each of us that we will be resurrected and live forever. But if we are to live forever with our families in Heavenly Father’s presence, we must do all that the Savior commands us to do. This includes being baptized and confirmed and receiving the ordinances of the temple.”

Mark 10:45; “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

Foundation of the Book of Mormon Series

Atonement in the Book of Mormon

Isaiah 59:1-2; “Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”

Think about this for a moment.

Where would you be today if Jesus hadn’t saved you?

Would you be just like you are right now? (We hope not!) Would you be divorced, married, estranged from loved ones?

How about your personal disposition? How much worse off would you be? Are people able to see a marked difference in you since that time?

Children Cannot Sin

D&C 29:46-47; But behold, I say unto you, that little children are redeemed from the foundation of the world through mine Only Begotten; 47 Wherefore, they cannot sin, for power is not given unto Satan to tempt little children, until they begin to become accountable before me.

Atonement

“What is the Atonement?

As used in the scriptures, to atone is to suffer the penalty for sins, thereby removing the effects of sin from the repentant sinner and allowing him or her to be reconciled to God. Jesus Christ was the only one capable of carrying out the Atonement for all mankind. Because of his Atonement, all people will be resurrected, and those who obey His gospel will receive the gift of eternal life with God.”

Laws of God not Perfect Yet

Journal of Discourses 2:314; The laws that the Lord has given are not fully perfect, because the people could not receive them in their perfect fulness; but they can receive a little here and a little there, a little today and a little to-morrow, a little more next week, and a little more in advance of that next year, if they make a wise improvement upon every little they receive; if they do not, they are left in the shade, and the light which the Lord reveals will appear darkness to them, and the kingdom of heaven will travel on and leave them groping. Hence, if we wish to act upon the fulness of the knowledge that the Lord designs to reveal, little by little, to the inhabitants of the earth, we must improve upon every little as it is revealed.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 8, 1855

New Era Article “Why We Do Missionary Work”

Part 1 – An Altar and a Sacrifice

I came across a speech given by Dallin Oaks which was then published in the New Era Magazine by the LDS Church and wanted to share it with our visitors.  There were several items of interest in this one speech, but for now we’re looking at just the first paragraph.  This topic warrants thousands of pages to be written, alas, the few things I have to say here is barely scratching the surface of all there is to say about Jesus, His death on the Cross and how our sins are atoned for.

The Cross of Jesus

Marion Romney, Ensign, pg. 6 May 1982; Having thus taken upon himself mortality, having suffered in Gethsemane for the sins of all men, and having given his life on the cross, there remained for him but to break the bonds of death—the fourth and last requirement—to complete his earthly mission as Redeemer.

Forgiveness, None for the Adulteress

Miracle of Forgiveness, pg. 164; In my years since then I have repeatedly heard people praise the Lord for his mercy in having forgiven the adulteress. This example has been used numerous times to show how easily one can be forgiven for gross sin. But did the Lord forgive the woman? Could he forgive her? There seems to be no evidence of forgiveness. His command to her was, “Go, and sin no more.” He was directing the sinful woman to go her way, abandon her evil life, commit no more sin, transform her life.” – Spencer W. Kimball
