What Does Reconciliation Mean?

  • It is the process of ransoming man from his state of sin and restoring him to harmony and unity with Diety.

Forgive One Another

  • Those who don’t forgive commit the greater sin.
  • Only the Lord Jesus Christ has the right to determine or demand price for offenses committed against us.
  • Any transgression against us has already had its price paid by our Savior and Redeemer.

An Atonement for All

  • When we fail to forgive we commit the sin of denying the power of the Atonement.
  • The Atonement is for the obedient and the disobedient.
  • Whatever our pains or burdens the Atonement of Christ gives us the ability to carry them because He makes them light.
