The Promised Messiah Bruce R McConkieThe Promised Messiah, pp. 227-230; “…The purposes of the Almighty neither have been nor can be frustrated. The fall was part of his plan; he designed and decreed it from the beginning. … Jacob exclaims: “…if the flesh should rise no more our spirits must become subject to that angel who fell from before the presence of the Eternal God, and became the devil, to rise no more.” (2 Ne. 9:8.) Subject to whom? To Lucifer, the traitor and rebel who defied Deity and spread the woes of war in the heavenly courts. Christ is now our King and we worship him because we will it so. Had there been no atonement Lucifer would have been our eternal head and we would have worshipped him because he willed it so. Agency and freedom would have ceased for all those whom God had sired.” – Bruce R. McConkie

1 John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

Discovering GraceAs a Mormon I heard the word atonement used in odd and often confusing ways.  Usually during General Conference I learned how I could apply it to my life, how it covered a multitude of things, how it would bring me personal strength, cleanse me and bring me happiness, and lastly how it will help me endure to the end.

Back then I was so clueless as to what the atonement was all about that, as a conversation starter, I asked a Christian woman in my homeschooling group if she believed in it. Looking back now I can’t imagine how bizarre she must have thought I was to even ask her such a question.

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, “The Atonement,” November 1996; “…Paul said, “As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” 14 The Atonement of Jesus Christ became the immortal Russell Nelsoncreation. He volunteered to answer the ends of a law previously transgressed. 15 And by the shedding of His blood, His 16 and our physical bodies could become perfected. They could again function without blood, just as Adam’s and Eve’s did in their paradisiacal form. Paul taught that “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; … this mortal must put on immortality.” 17…”  – Russell M. Nelson
