Baptisms for the Dead | 23 May 2018

Scripture

“And now, the plan of mercy could not be brought about except an atonement should be made; therefore God himself atoneth for the sins of the world, to bring about the plan of mercy, to appease the demands of justice, that God might be a perfect, just God, and a merciful God also.” —Alma 42:15

Quote

“While yet in life, Jesus prophesied that He would also preach to the dead. The doctrine that the living can provide baptism and other essential ordinances to the dead, vicariously, was revealed anew to the Prophet Joseph Smith. By the baptisms we perform in behalf of the dead, we testify that “as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”” D. Todd Christofferson
