Mwumwutan me Manamanen Pristut

Ewe pristut a ewe mwumwutan Kot ngeni ekkoch mwan won ei fonufan pwe repwe anisi aramas ngeni manau ese much (nengeni Spencer W. Kimball, “The Example of Abraham,” Ensign, June 1975, 3). Pristut a fofforun ewe Samon me ren ekkoch mwan pwe epwe amanaua ngunun aramas. Eu napanapan ewe Mwichefenin Jises Kraist, non fansoun nom me ikenai, mi chok An we mwumwuta. Ese tongeni wor eu Mwichefen mi ennet ika ese wor mwumwuta seni nang.

Mwan usuch chok ra angei ewe mwumwutan pristut. Esap seni ar sineiochu, angangoch, ika ar sukkun pwe repwe tongeni seikita ngeni ewe pristut nge seni chok ar aneasochis me ar mochen awora aninis.

Non ewe enimuan nongonongen achifoua a aiti kich ifa usun emon epwe angei mwumwutan pristut: “Sia nuku pwe aramas repwe koko seni Kot, seni osini, ar iseta paw won mokurer seni ekkewe mi wor ar mwumwuta, pwe repwe tongeni afanafana ewe Kapas Allim me angang annukun ewe kapas allim.” Iwe, emon at ika emon mwan a angei ewe mwumwutan pristut me a seikita ngeni eu ofis seni emon a nom ren ewe pristut me a fen mutata seni emon souemwen a nom ren ekkewe kien pristut.

Mi namwot pwe emon chon pristut epwe aea ei mwumwuta mi pin ren pungupungoch fan An Kot ekiek me popun. Mokutokutun ewe pristut esap usun pwisin kich. Fansoun meinisin sia aea ewe pristut pwe epwe anisi, efeiochu, me apochokuna aramas.

Emon a angei ewe pristut mi tekia me ren eu pwon mi pin pwe epwe wisen fori mettoch meinisin mi kapachenong non ei mwumwuta (nengeni D&C 68:8) me non ei ofis (nengeni D&C 107:99) a angei. Pun a nom rech An Kot mwumwuta mi pin, sia chon foffor mwitir me sisap witi tori emon epwe tingoreikich (nengeni 2 Nifai 2:26). Ewe pristut mi angang weires me ese chipwang.

Preseten Ezra Taft Benson a aiti kich:

“Ese naf pwe sipwe chok angei ewe pristut me mommot chok me witi tori emon epwe pesei ngeni kich pwe sipwe angang. Nupwen sia angei ewe pristut, a wor wisach pwe sipwe angang weires me sipwe mochen wenechar non ach aninis me foffor mi murino won ewe fonufan, pun ewe Samon a era: ‘

“‘…Ekkewe ir ese wor ar foffor tori emon epwe annuku i, me a angei annuk ren tipemwaramwar, me a chipwang non an epwe aneasochiki, iwe ena emon epwe weri ninni’ [nengeni D&C 58:29]” (So Shall Ye Reap [1960], 21).

Preseten Spencer W. Kimball a pwan esinna pwe netipen ewe pristut mi tipeu ngeni angang. “Emon a atai ewe pwonun pristut ren an aneasonap annuk—pwan ren an chipwangano wisan kewe. Iwe, ika emon a mochen ataieno ei pwon mi pin esap chok fori och mettoch” ” (The Miracle of Forgiveness [1969], 96).

Nupwen sia angangoch non wisach kewe non pristut, sia tongeni feioch ren pochokunun pristut. Pochokunun pristut a chok An Kot manaman me ren mwan me at usuch chok me a feito seni nukuchar, aneasochis, angang weires, me nimenimochun pwisin kich. Emon at ika emon mwan a tongeni angei mwumwutan pristut seni iseta paw won mokuran nge esap wor an manamanen pristut ika a aneasonap, nimengau, ika ese mochen fori aninis.

“Tufichin ewe pristut ra chok ririfengeni ren pochokunun nang, me … emon ese tongeni aea ekkewe manamanen nang chinon chok epwe fori nongonong mi pung me wenechar.

Sia tongeni angei tufichin ewe pristut, nge ika sia achocho ne apwonu ach kewe tipis, ika apwapwaiti ach namanam tekia ika ach mochen mi nusmwan, ika sia achocho ne nemeni ngunun aramas fiti foffor mi mwan, nang epwe suu seni kich me Ngunun ewe Samon epwe netipechou. Nupwen Ngunun ewe Samon a suu seni emon, ese chuen wor an pristut ika mwumwuta. (nengeni D&C 121:36–37; mi pachenong esisin).

Pwi kana, ika emon at ika emon mwan a angei mwumwutan pristut nge a chipwang ne fori met mi namwot pwe epwe angei pochokunun pristut ewe Samon esap etiwa i. Chon pristut seni anuon ngeni chinnap mi namwot ngenir pwe epwe wor ar mwumwuta me manaman—ewe mutata me tufich non pekin ngun pwe repwe fori An Kot angangen manau ese much.
