For behold I, God, have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer if they would repent;—Doctrine and Covenants 19:16
I believe that our Heavenly Father wants to save every one of his children. I do not think he intends to shut any of us off… I believe that in his justice and mercy he will give us the maximum reward for our acts, give us all that he can give, and in the reverse, I believe that he will impose upon us the minimum penalty which it is possible for him to impose. —J. Reuben Clark
