“Acknowledge Your Faults and That Wrong Which Ye Have Done”

Brant Gardner

The commandment to Corianton is simple, as it is to us all. Stop doing the things that lead us away from the Lord, and return to him. One of the most important aspects of repentance is that we “acknowledge [our] faults and the wrong which [we] have done.” This is the essential first step. Unless and until we admit that we have been contrary to the will of God, we will not be able to rectify our standing before God. Before we can move closer to God, we must recognize that it is we who have moved away.
