Oh, man... I'm still reeling from the video
I watched earlier tonight. I've gotta read my scriptures, though, so.... Here we go.
From verse 3 to verse 6 causes me to ponder various questions.
If Jesus Christ is the Christ of only this world, then these verses tell us only of the wickedness of the particular nation which crucified Jesus Christ.... But what if Christ was crucified for more than the people of this earth?
That indeed gives the verses an even more somber note. For more than just the nation which crucified their God being the most wicked nation on earth, it also means that among the earths under Christ's ruling, we were the most wicked earth in his possession. Something to think about, anyway.
Man alive.... I don't remember the last verses of this chapter to be so powerful!
Verses 23 through 25 are amazing!
Last Sunday, in priesthood, we talked about two talks
given by apostles, and both talks had to do with people not of our faith, and how we should interact with them.
The words, "...and remember, after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that ye are saved.
I don't know how much clearer this doctrine can be made.
We indeed do believe in the grace of God, through the atonement of Jesus Christ.
