A Remission of our Sins

NOTE TO THE READERSThese are not my words, but they are true and important to know and understand.  They are part of a beautiful and reassuring testimony from an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, and of our Savior’s Gift of the Atonement.

“We are imperfect human beings striving to live in mortality according to Heavenly Father’s perfect plan of eternal progression. The requirements of His plan are glorious, merciful, and rigorous. We may at times be filled with determination and at other times feel totally inadequate. We may wonder if we spiritually can ever fulfill the commandment to stand spotless before Him at the last day.

“With the help of the Lord and through the power of His Spirit to ‘teach [us] all things,’ indeed we can be blessed to realize our spiritual possibilities. Ordinances invite spiritual purpose and power into our lives as we strive to be born again and become men and women of Christ. Our weaknesses can be strengthened, and our limitations can be overcome.

“Although none of us can achieve perfection in this life, we can become increasingly worthy and spotless as we are ‘cleansed by the blood of the Lamb.’ I promise and testify we will be blessed with increased faith in the Savior and greater spiritual assurance as we seek to always retain a remission of our sins and, ultimately, to stand spotless before the Lord at the last day. I so witness in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.”

Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
General Conference, April 2016

This website is a collection of many subjects and thoughts that are important to me, and some insights I’ve learned “...along the way.” I think of myself as just a simple man with a testimony of Jesus Christ and His Restored Gospel. But, I have lived (and continue to live) an extraordinary and enjoyable life. I've tried to share some highlights here. I have so many good memories. (SAE)

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Kudos

    1. Building a blogsite like this requires buying a domain name and having it hosted. You can do this at any number of web hosting sites. I recommend http://www.godaddy.com. Then, find user-friendly blogging software (e.g., WordPress). GoDaddy.com can also help you with that (and they would explain the costs). Going forward, you would need to set up and design your online theme/appearance (WordPress has canned themes). However, even with a canned theme, this can be a bit difficult. So, you should rely on tutorials and help from your hosting agency (GoDaddy provides FREE online support). Once your basic theme is ready, you would begin writing and posting your blog materials. No doubt you will start with a basic theme layout, but you will gradually modify the layout and personalize it to your liking over time. For “tips” on my type of blogging, please see my notes at https://www.scottedgar.com/why-and-how-to-record-thoughts/. Of course, this is all overly simplified, but I hope it is helpful. Good Luck.
