“For there can no man be saved except his garments are washed white; yea, his garments must be purified until they are cleansed from all stain.” —Alma 5:21
“There is a parallel between our garments being washed clean through the blood of the Lamb and how we wash our own dirty linen. It is through His atoning sacrifice that our garments will be cleansed. The need for cleansing comes as we become soiled through sin. The judgment and forgiving are the Savior’s prerogative, for only He can forgive and wash away our sins.” —Lynn A. Mickelsen
