“Because God is perfect, His plan for accomplishing His goal is perfect. . .The thought that God would promote something that would ensure that the vast majority of His children would never again be able to dwell in his presence is incomprehensible.”
—Alonzo L. Gaskell, Odds Are, You’re Going to be Exalted, p. 17.
“The great Mediator asks for our repentance not because we must ‘repay’ him in exchange for his paying our debt to justice, but because repentance initiates a developmental process that, with the Savior’s help, leads us along the path to a saintly character”
—Bruce C. Hafen, The Broken Heart, p. 149
“I testify that the Savior’s Atonement lifts from us not only the burden of our sins but also the burden of our disappointments and sorrows, our heartaches and our despair. From the beginning, trust in such help was to give us both a reason and a way to improve, an incentive to lay down our burdens and take up our salvation”
—Elder Jeffery R. Holland ,“Broken Things to Mend,” Ensign, May 2006
