Comments Off on Joseph F. Smith – Mankind Saved by Atonement

President Joseph F. Smith began his account of his great vision of the world of spirits (now Doctrine and Covenants 138) by reflecting on the Atonement.

On the third of October, in the year nineteen hundred and eighteen, I sat in my room pondering over the scriptures;

  And reflecting upon the great atoning sacrifice that was made by the Son of God, for the redemption of the world;

  And the great and wonderful love made manifest by the Father and the Son in the coming of the Redeemer into the world;

  That through his atonement, and by obedience to the principles of the gospel, mankind might be saved.
