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

Sin, Young


Brother Brigham loves to make some of his points by beginning with a statement contrary to the common beliefs of the Saints in his day.

“Do not imagine that I am in the least finding fault with the Devil. I would not bring a railing accusation against him, for he is fulfilling his office and calling manfully; he is more faithful in his calling than are many of the people. God is not yet going to destroy wickedness from the earth. How frequently we hear it reiterated from the pulpit that he is going to destroy all wickedness. No such thing. He will destroy the power of sin. The work the Savior has on hand is to reduce the power of the Devil to perfect subjection; and when he has destroyed death and him that has the power of it, pertaining to this world, then he will deliver up the kingdom spotless to the Father.”

Brigham Young
