“And there shall also be many which shall say: Eat, drink, and be merry; nevertheless, fear God—he will justify in committing a little sin….Yea, and there shall be many which shall teach after this manner, false and vain and foolish doctrines, and shall be puffed up in their hearts, and shall seek deep to hide their counsels from the Lord; and their works shall be in the dark.” – 2 Nephi 28:8-9
“The atoning sacrifice had to be carried out by the sinless Son of God, for fallen man could not atone for his own sins. Through His suffering and death, the Savior atoned for the sins of all men.” – C. Scott Grow
