Opening the Door to Repentance

Conference Report, Apr. 1975, p. 116; refer in this text to Alma 38:8

“When we come to recognize our sin sincerely and without reservations, we are ready to follow such processes as will rid us of sin’s effects… . Young Alma was so deep in his sin that it was most difficult for him to humble himself toward repentance, but when his experience broke down his resistance, softened his rebellion and overcame his stubbornness, he began to see himself in his true light and appraise his situation as it really was. His heart was softened. His repentance was being born.” (Spencer W. Kimball, The Miracle of Forgiveness, pp. 157-159)
