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.
