“The Brother of Jared Fell Down Before the Lord, for He Was Struck with Fear”

Nothing was more well-established in the minds of the ancients than the necessity of holiness-the certain knowledge that unholy man would be unprepared and thus would be consumed in the presence of the God of glory (see JST, Exodus 33:20; D&C 67:10-13).

“It Is the Doctrine Which the Father Hath Given Unto Me”

To us, the central thing in the plan of salvation is the atoning sacrifice of Christ … . Accordingly, we speak of the gospel of Jesus Christ- he adopted his Father’s plan- to center our attention everlastingly in the One by whom salvation comes … . It is God’s gospel and it is Christ’s gospel, and if we believe and obey its truths and laws and play our assigned parts in the divine system, it becomes our gospel also. (New Witness, pp. 132-33.)
