The Path To Righteousness

To me, these verses delineate the Path to Righteousness:

“Listen to the words of Christ, your Redeemer, your Lord and your God. Behold, I came into the worlds not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance; the whole need no physician, but they that are sick; wherefore, little children are whole, for they are not capable of committing sin; wherefore the curse of Adam is taken from them in me, that it hath no power over them; and the law of circumcision is doe away in me.” (Moroni 8: 8 )

“And I am filled with charity, which is everlasting love; wherefore, all children are alike unto me; wherefore, I love little children with a perfect love; and they are all alike and partakers of salvation.” (Moroni 8: 17)

“. . . for repentance is unto them that are under condemnation and under the curse of a broken law.

And the first fruits of repentance is baptism; and baptism cometh by faith unto the fulfilling the commandments; and the fulfilling the commandments bringeth remission of sins;

And the remission of sins bringeth meekness, and lowliness of heart; and because of meekness and lowliness of heart cometh the visitation of the Holy Ghost, which Comforter filleth with hope and perfect love, which love endureth by diligence unto prayer, until the end shall come, when all the saints shall dwell with God.” (Moroni 8: 24-26)

This latter verse reminds me of these verses in 2 Peter 1: 5-8:

“. . . giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

And if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

I love these two, what I call, ‘Paths to Righteousness’, because they both tell me what I need to do to be pure and chaste; thereby, I might have the continual companionship of the Holy Ghost, and that I might be exalted with my Heavenly Family.

This is what I previously wrote after reading Moroni 8:  Who Needs Baptism?
