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

Take courage, brethren. . . . Plow your land, and sow wheat, plant your potatoes. . . . It is our duty to preach the gospel, gather Israel, pay our tithing, and build temples. The worst fear I have about this people is that they will get rich in this country, forget God and his people, wax fat, and kick themselves out of the Church and go to hell. This people will stand mobbing, robbing, poverty, and all manner of persecution and be true. But my greatest fear is that they cannot stand wealth.

Brigham Young
