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.

Amulek's question - How shall ye be saved except ye inherit the kingdom of God

How shall ye be saved except ye inherit the kingdom of God?

Amulek's question is worth pondering.

If I was to suddenly inherit the paint brushes used by Raphael or Renoir I would feel unworthy of such an inheritance. I am no master painter. I would feel like the wrong person to get them.

How can we rightly inherit the kingdom of God if we are unwilling to cast everything out of ourselves which is offensive to God?

Enoch put it well.

Jude 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

Thus we must repent if we are to at last be saved in the kingdom of God.
