“Charity is Love”

Bryan Richards

The fact that charity is the pure love of Christ is well known. This topic will not be dealt with in detail in this chapter. It will become an important topic in the writings of Moroni. The following quote should suffice for now.

Bruce R. McConkie

"Above all the attributes of godliness and perfection, charity is the one most devoutly to be desired. Charity is more than love, far more; it is everlasting love, perfect love, the pure love of Christ which endureth forever. It is love so centered in righteousness that the possessor has no aim or desire except for the eternal welfare of his own soul and for the souls of those around him. (2 Ne. 26:30; Moro. 7:47; 8:25-26.)" (Mormon Doctrine, p. 121)
