Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

Not all are given every gift

The scriptural statement that not all are given every gift refers to initially, and not in the long run. There are no restrictions in long run of course. Christ had every good gift. Moroni 7 teaches us how to lay hold of every good gift (Moroni 7), which is the same as growing from grace to grace until we eventually grow into a fullness. The scriptural statement that not all are given every gift is a statement than initially all are not given every gift. But there are no graces God arbitrarily does not allow one individual or another to receive over time because that is precisely the path to exaltation, and one can hardly be exalted and still not have every good gift. Over time, if we follow Moroni's counsel, we can lay hold of every good gift.
