Matthew Francis REL A 121, Section 52 Brother Terry 4 December 2008 The Atonement Jesus Christ came into this world for one single purpose: to suffer for our sins and to die that the world might live. It is the only hope of mankind. We are inevitably fallible and cannot be perfect on our own. Combining that statement with the one that no imperfect thing can dwell with our Heavenly Father, we know that we cannot make it back to Him alone. That is where Christ enters the equation. Through Christ, our Heavenly Father has created a way that we might repent and forsake our sins, that they will be remembered no more (“Atonement of Jesus Christ,” True to the Faith ). So it is only through this ability to repent, the atonement, that we can be saved. Jesus Christ “came into the world…to be crucified for the world, and to bear the sins of the world, and to sanctify the world, and to cleanse it from all unrighteousness; that through him all might be saved” (D&C 76:41-42).
