Bergin and Butler, Repentance, Sacrifice

Comments Off on Reversing Sinful Traditions

While we cannot atone for the sins of the human family in the same way the Savior did (Alma 34:10-12), we can become redeemers within our families by sacrificing personal need on behalf of others (John 15:4-5, 10-13; D&C 4; D&C 97:8-9) and by reversing sinful traditions to create a righteous heritage for succeeding generations.
