“If Ye Then, Being Evil”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

This is a reference to man’s mortal and unsaved condition. If mortal man-man troubled on every side by temptation and trial, clouded in his vision by personal ambition and pride-is willing to provide for his own, how much more eager and able is God the Father-an exalted, immortal, saved being, one filled with mercy and love-to reveal himself and the truths pertaining to his salvation to all who ask in faith?
