sotw: helaman 5:9

Sep 11, 2012

There are a lot of beliefs in my Mormon religion. A lot of doctrines, principles, practices, stories, and experiences that make up who we are as a people. I am grateful to live surrounded by others of my faith and to be free to practice my religion according to my conscience. I am grateful my children are part of the LDS culture here in the Rocky Mountains.

BUT, I don’t ever want the culture, the practices, stories, or experiences to trump the central tenet of our religion, which is that Jesus Christ died for us and his infinite, atoning sacrifice is the only means by which we can be saved. We are all lost. We are all fallen. We are all sinners. Christ is the only answer. This central message is what I want to pour into their souls so deeply that it becomes the bedrock of their foundation, their guiding star throughout their lives.

Helaman 5:9

O remember, remember, my sons, the words which King Benjamin spake unto his people; yea, remember that there is no other way nor means whereby man can be saved, only through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, who shall come; yea, remember that He cometh to redeem the world.
