“All That Have Been Seized… Must Stand Before … God”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

One of the central doctrines of salvation- taught with repetitive emphasis and clarity in the Book of Mormon- is eternal judgment, the principle that every person will stand before the bar of God to account for his or her deeds.

Those who have received the truth with eagerness and have kept the commandments of God those who traversed the strait path which leads to life- will find a place with that God hereafter.

Those who have chosen to follow the path of least resistance- the course charted by the evil engineer of the wide path- will forfeit all privileges of seeing or associating with God or the godly.
