The Purifying Power of Gethsemane


"I was reading the scriptures the other day and I read one in 1 John 1:7 that reminded me of a talk that Elder Bruce R. McConkie gave right before he died."

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie
Last Talk, General Conference, April 1985


I feel, and the Spirit seems to accord, that the most important doctrine I can declare, and the most powerful testimony I can bear, is one of the atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.

His atonement is the most transcendent event that ever has or ever will occur from Creations dawn and through all the ages of a never-ending eternity. It was the supreme act of goodness and grace that only a God could perform. Through it all the terms and conditions of the Father's Plan of Salvation became operative. Through it was brought to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. Through it, all men are saved from death, hell, the devil, and endless torment. Through it, all men who believe and obey the glorious gospel of God, those who are true and faithful and overcome the world, all who suffer for Christ and his word, all who are chastened and scourged in the Cause of his whose we are--all shall become as their maker and sit with him on his throne and reign with him forever in everlasting glory.

In speaking of these wondrous things I will use my own words, though you may think they are the words of scripture, words spoken by other Apostles and Prophets. True it is that they were first proclaimed by others, but they are now mine, for the Holy Spirit of God has borne witness to me that they are true and it is now as though the Lord had revealed them to me in the first instance. I have thereby heard his voice and know his word.
