Wherefore, do the things which I have told you I have seen that your Lord and your Redeemer should do; for, for this cause have they been shown unto me, that ye might know the gate by which ye should enter. For the gate by which ye should enter is repentance and baptism by water, and then cometh a remission of your sins by fire and by the Holy Ghost.
And then are ye in this strait and narrow path which leads to eternal life; yea, ye have entered in by the gate; ye have done according to the commandments of the Father and the Son; and ye have received the Holy Ghost, which witnesses of the Father and the Son, unto the fulfilling of the promise which he hath made, that if ye entered in by the way ye should receive. (2 Nephi 31:17-18) Read More
There has been much debate of late regarding servants, priesthood, temples and the coming forth of a restored set of scriptures. There have even been those pitting the servants of God against the other and comparing them saying, so and so is a greater prophet than the other. These are the musings of those who do not know God, who turn the word of God for naught and who themselves do not keep the commandments.
Christ needs to be our focus and our ideal; we need to know Him better than we do. We need to be humble and realize Gods ways are not ours and as we remain a stranger to God, His ways will always be confusing and even at times contrary to our moral compasses and appear odd to us. Yet as we seek God, we begin to see as He sees and we begin to see the wisdom in His ways that we beforehand could not comprehend. We ought to receive the light He has offered to us, let His light take root in you and let it grow. Though most, out of fear, instead of embracing truth find reason to fight against it, when we fight against His will for us, for our own will and what we are willing to understand, accept and do, when we do this it places us at odds with God and if we continue down this path it places us at opposition to God and opposing Gods will, and then finally we find ourselves rejecting and fighting against God. Not the side of eternity I or you should want to be on.
Enter in by the way…
