“And thus he shall bring salvation to all those who shall believe on his name; this being the intent of this last sacrifice, to bring about the bowels of mercy, which overpowereth justice, and bringeth about means unto men that they may have faith unto repentance. And thus mercy can satisfy the demands of justice, and encircles them in the arms of safety…” – Alma 34:16
“We speak of the Church as our refuge, our defense. There is safety and protection in the Church.” – Boyd K. Packer
