An Epiphany About The Atonement
I had an epiphany, over the weekend, that helped me to better understand the atonement vs being judged by the Lord for my own many mis-deeds in my life. I think many people's opinions about heaven are such; That it's a glorious place that one is trying not to get kicked out of... His fear comes by reading the story of Adam and Eve in the garden... and that when they sin, they obsess about getting kicked out. One obsesses about the judgment and he never truly lives or serves for he can not. He is on a self doom fulfilling cycle and can not allow the savior to bring him peace in his life. As in sports, these are they that don't continue trying to win the game (being infinite points ahead) but are trying not to lose with an infinite point lead. One of Satan's lies are: You can't be cleaned...you've gone too far... you will be judged. Never never never never EVER let him do that! If he ever reminds you of your past, remind him of his (the Devil) future!
