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

Elder Bruce R. McConkie Christ and the Creation

This infinite Atonement of Christ was possible because

(1) He was the only sinless man ever to live on this earth and therefore was not subject to the spiritual death resulting from sin,

(2) He was the Only Begotten of the Father and therefore possessed the attributes of godhood that gave Him power over physical death, and

(3) He was apparently the only one sufficiently humble and willing in the premortal council to be foreordained to that service.
