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

For those of you who have recently discovered this blog, from time to time, I go back to some of the foundation stones of my testimony of the Atonement, which were among my earliest posts.

The following instruction from President Packer has influenced every lesson and sermon I have presented since I first understood what what he was really saying.  Whatever shortcomings my lesson may have, it will be explicitly and securely attached to the Atonement.

[The Atonement of Christ] is the very root of Christian doctrine. You may know much about the gospel as it branches out from there, but if you only know the branches and those branches do not touch that root, if they have been cut free from that truth, there will be no life nor substance nor redemption in them.

The Mediator,” Ensign, May 1977, 54
