Atonement of Jesus Christ

The Atonement of Christ…

Posted on March 28, 2008.

” The atonement of Christ is so great in its effects and so far-reaching in its consequences that it easily qualifies as the most important occurrence in time or in all eternity. Nothing ever has or ever will surpass it in significance. Nothing is greater in the entire universe or in the history of created things than Christ’s atonement. The atonement of Christ is infinite in time, space, and quantity – infinite in scope and eternal duration. All death is answered; every creature under the Savior’s dominion is resurrected. All sin is compensated for; every combination of sins is covered. The Atonement goes beyond personal sin to include disappointment, sorrow, and suffering caused by the sins of others. It even extends to the sickness and infirmities we must bear just because we are mortal. It was made by a being who was God before he came to earth, who was the Son of God on earth and who will be God eternally and endlessly.”

Gethsemane by Andrew C. Skinner (pages 11 & 12)

“We really are immortal in the sense that Christ’s Atonement conquers death, both physical and spiritual. And provided we have so lived Today that we have claim on the Atonement’s cleansing grace, we will live forever with God. This life is not so much a time for getting and accumulating as it is a time for giving and becoming. Mortality is the battlefield upon which justice and mercy meet. But they need not meet as adversaries, for they are reconciled in the Atonement of Jesus Christ for all who wisely use Today.” – Lance B. Wickman, “Today,” General Conference, April 2008
