Christus Jesus Christ Mormon“We do not succeed, I believe, until the Spirit of the Lord reaches down into the heart of the people and touches them with that conviction that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, the Firstborn of the Father, the Only Begotten in the flesh, He who gave His life for each of us.  I can’t comprehend, in terms of eternities and the blessings of eternities, the magnitude of the Atonement, but I can sense it and appreciate it in a measure atleast, and the older I grow–and I am getting pretty ancient–the more certain I feel that when all is said and done, that is the key to everything else.  That is the heart of the eternal plan of salvation.  We lived before we came here.  We are here for a purpose.  We shall live after we die, and all of it is a part of eternity, and the key to everlasting life is the atonement wrought by the Savior.”

(England Birmingham Missionary Meeting, August 29, 1995.)
