“Verily I say unto you, all among them who know their hearts are honest, and are broken, and their spirits contrite, and are willing to observe their covenants by sacrifice—yea, every sacrifice which I, the Lord, shall command—they are accepted of me.” – D&C 97:8
“A religion that does not require the sacrifice of all things never has power sufficient to produce the faith necessary unto life and salvation.” – Joseph Smith
