And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually been born of God? Have ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty change in your hearts? —Alma 5:14
One of the powerful doctrines of the Book of Mormon is that we can, indeed we must, undergo a mighty change of heart. The Book of Mormon also teaches us that wickedness never was happiness and that men are that they might have joy. The journey from wickedness to joy requires a mighty change of heart. —Spencer J. Condie
