The Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ is the heart and core and center of revealed religion.

Nibley, Repentance

A righteous person is one who is repenting; a wicked person is one who is not repenting.

A righteous man is not one who is all good. There is no such person at all. We have all this mixture. And a wicked man is not one who is all bad. We don’t have any of either.

If you are repenting, it’s like being on the stairway. A person at the bottom of the stairs facing up is better off than the person at the top of the stairs facing down, if it’s the way of repentance. So this is what we are told. It’s never too late, and that’s a marvelous thing.
