Risk All to Gain All – A Very Simple Formula

I apologize in advance for being repetitive, as I have touched on this topic twice before: https://scottstover.wordpress.com/2015/05/09/of-promises-safety-and-the-fullness-of-the-priesthood/ https://scottstover.wordpress.com/2015/01/19/comfort-in-zion/ I also apologize in advance that this post will most certainly become highly rhetorical as I attempt to drive home my point, and that it will also likely become very emotional. On second thought, I cannot really […]

My Grace is Sufficient

I have, for a long, long time, thought that I had to become perfect in order to become one with Christ.  I now understand that this is not true doctrine – that it is in fact a false belief that demeans my Savior’s love and sacrifice – the sacrifice that He made for me…and for […]

Of Denver, Baptisms, and Zion – The Light of Truth

I’m really not sure what I’m going to write today, but I know I need to write.  There are several things I want to share – thoughts I have been pondering, knowledge I’ve been given, questions I have.  This may be structured like something of a potpourri, or musings, or wanderings, but there really is […]
