Happy Leap Year Day!
The last time I read Alma 45, on June 24, 2011, I mentioned this scripture:
“Thus saith the Lord God – Cursed shall be the land, yea, this land, unto every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, unto destruction, which do wickedly, when they are fully ripe; and as I have said so shall it be; for this is the cursing and the blessing of God upon the land, for the Lord cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance.” (Alma 45:16)
I know that when I sin, I do not have the Spirit with me. Therefore, I know that this verse if true; and I feel bad when this happens. Although, I am grateful for the Atonement which allows for me to repent and be forgiven; because I have felt its power too.
