Not Sure How Jesus Atoned for Sin

“Singing the Song of Redeeming Love,” Ensign, Mar. 1993, p. 58; “We don’t know exactly how Jesus accomplished the Atonement. We only know that somehow during the course of the excruciating and agonizing hours in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross, he became our Redeemer.”Joseph Walker

Matthew 5:17; “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”

Ephesians 2:15-16; “Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.”

Genesis 3:15; “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

How incredibly sad.  How can they not know how Jesus accomplished the atonement? 

I listed a few little verses here but as we all know I could’ve listed a thousand of them and it wouldn’t have sufficed. This is why they seem so confused.
