Atonement



1). “If we have sinned or made mistakes- If we have made choices that we now regret- there is the precious gift of Christ’s Atonement, through which we can be forgiven. We cannot go back in time and change the past, but we can repent. The Savior can wipe away our tears of regret and remove the burden of our sins. His atonement allows us to leave the past behind and move forward with clean hands, a pure heart, and a determination to do better and especially to become better.”
Dieter F Uchtdorf “Of regrets and Resolutions” October 2012 General Conference

2). “Don’t put your eternal life at risk. Keep the commandments of God. If you have sinned, the sooner you begin to make your way back, the sooner you will find the sweet peace and joy that come with the miracle of forgiveness.”
Thomas S Monson “Preparation Brings Blessings” April 2010 General Conference

3). “We all depend on the Savior; none of us can be saved without Him. Christ’s Atonement is infinite and eternal. Forgiveness for our sins comes with conditions. We must repent, and we must be willing to forgive others.”
Dieter F Uchtdorf “The Merciful Obtain Mercy” April 2012 General Conference

4). “It was understood from the beginning that in mortality we would fall short of being perfect. It was not expected that we would live without transgressing one law or another. If you have made no mistakes, then you do not need the Atonement. If you have made mistakes, and all of us have, whether minor or serious, then you have an enormous need to find out how they can be erased so that you are no longer in darkness.”
Boyd K Packer “The Atonement” October 2012 General Conference

5). “God, our loving Father in Heaven, has said that it is His work and glory ‘to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man’ (Moses 1:39). God the Father is the author of the gospel; it is a key part of God’s plan of salvation, or plan of redemption. It is called the gospel of Jesus Christ because it is the Atonement of Jesus Christ that makes redemption and salvation possible. Through the Atonement all men, women, and children are unconditionally redeemed from physical death, and all will be redeemed from their own sins on the condition of accepting and obeying the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
Dieter F Uchtdorf, “Have We Not Reason to Rejoice?” October 2007 General Conference

6). “If Christ had not made his Atonement, the penalties for mistakes would be added one on the other. Life would be hopeless. But He willingly sacrificed in order that we may be redeemed. And he said, ‘Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more.'”
– Boyd K. Packer “The Touch of the Master’s Hand” April 2001 General Conference

7). “Having faith in Jesus Christ and in His Atonement means relying completely on Him– trusting in His infinite power, intelligence, and love. Christ like attributes come into our lives as we exercise our agency righteously. Faith in Jesus Christ leads to action. When we have faith in Christ, we trust the Lord enough to follow His commandments — even when we do not completely understand the reasons for them.”
- Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “Christlike Attributes–the Wind beneath Our Wings” October 2005 General Conference

8). “Repentance is a divine gift, and there should be a smile on our faces when we speak of it. It points us to freedom, confidence, and peace. Rather than interrupting the celebration, the gift of repentance is the cause for true celebration.”
D. Todd Christofferson, “The Divine Gift of Repentance” October 2011 General Conference

9). Alma emphasizes that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, ‘the arms of mercy are extended’ to those who repent. He then asks penetrating and ultimate questions, such as: Are we prepared to meet God? Are we keeping ourselves blameless? We should all contemplate these questions.”
Quinten L Cook, “Can Ye Feel So Now” October 2012 General Conference

10). "The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the foreordained but voluntary act of the Only Begotten Son of God. He offered His life as a redeeming ransom for us all."
Thomas S. Monson, "They Showed the Way," Ensign, May 1997
