strtoupper('“T')hey Could Not Bear That Any Human Soul Should Perish”

Describing that same spirit known to the sons of Mosiah, President Joseph F. Smith, reflecting on that spirit associated with his own baptism, recalled:

“The feeling that came upon me was that of pure peace, of love and of light. I felt in my soul that if I had sinned-and surely I was not without sin-that it had been forgiven me; that I was indeed cleansed from sin; my heart was touched, and I felt that I would not injure the smallest insect beneath my feet. I felt as if I wanted to do good everywhere to everybody and to everything. I felt a newness of life, a newness of desire to do that which was right. There was not one particle of desire for evil left in my soul.”

(Gospel Doctrine, p. 96.)
