Believe Christ

Isaiah 1:18

Come now, let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

“…What the Lord is saying here is this: ‘It doesn’t matter what you did.  Whatever it was, no matter how horrible or vile, is not the issue.  The issue here is that whatever your sin was or is, I can erase it, I can clean you up and make you innocent, pure, and worthy, and I can do it today; I can do it now.’”

“Unfortunately, there are many members of the Church who simply do not believe this…they may believe that the Church is true, that Jesus is the Christ, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, while at the same time refusing to accept the possibility of their own complete forgiveness and eventual exaltation in the kingdom of God.  They believe in Christ, but they do not believe Christ.”  — Stephen E. Robinson, Believing Christ
