The subject of having “sinned too much” or “waited too long” comes up on the UnBlog every now and then. I saw this quote on the IDLDS chat group, and wanted to share it with you. Joshua comes up with gems like this quite often, and has given me permission to share them on the UnBlog. Notice the “if”. It isn’t if we repent hard enough, or talk to the Bishop, or even quit sinning.
“The gospel teaches us that relief from torment and guilt can be earned through repentance. Save for those few – those very few – who defect to perdition after having known a fullness, there is no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no offense small or large which is exempt from the promise of complete forgiveness. No matter what has happened in your life, the Lord has prepared a way for you to come back if you will heed the promptings of the Holy Spirit.”
