Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

The Atonement

The Passion of the Christ

“The atonement of the Master is the central point of world history. Without it, the whole purpose for the creation of the earth and our living upon it would fail…

“…Without it, no man or woman would ever be resurrected… And so all the world, believers and non-believers, are indebted to the Redeemer for their certain resurrection, because the resurrection will be as wide as the fall, which brought death to every man.

“There is another phase of the atonement which makes me love the Savior even more, and fills my soul with gratitude beyond expression. It is that in addition to atoning for Adam’s transgression, thereby bringing about the resurrection, the Savior by his suffering paid the debt for my personal sins. He paid the debt for your personal sins and for the personal sins
of every living soul that ever dwelt upon the earth or ever will dwell in mortality upon the earth. But this he did conditionally.

“The benefits of this suffering for our individual transgressions will not come to us unconditionally in the same sense that the
resurrection will come regardless of what we do. If we partake of the blessings of the atonement as far as our individual transgressions are concerned, we must obey the law.”
