Elder Packer teaches of the importance, power of the Atonement

President Boyd K. Packer was the first speaker of the session.

He spoke of hope and how the Atonement can not only heal our wrongdoings, but heal our wounds caused by the wrongdoings of others.

“His mercy is the mighty healer, even to the wounded innocent.”

President Packer spoke of a hypothetical world in which no Atonement was made for our sins.

“Had He not accomplished the Atonement, there would be no redemption. It would be a difficult world to live in if we could never be forgiven for our mistakes, if we could never purify ourselves and move on.”

He said the power of the Atonement is available to all who will accept it.

“A testimony of the hope of redemption is something which cannot be measured or counted. Jesus Christ is the source of that hope.”

Elder Packer spoke of the need we have to encompass everyone in the Church.

“We seek to strengthen the testimonies of the young and old, the married and single. We need to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to men, women, and children, those of every race and nationality, the rich and the poor…We need everyone’s wisdom and insight and spiritual strength. Each member of this Church as an individual is a critical element of the body of the Church.”
