Salvation through Atonement and Law – Mormon Quotes

Ensign, April 2001, pg. 4; Having purchased us (see 1 Cor. 7:23) with His atoning blood (seeActs 20:28) in the great and marvelous Atonement, Jesus thereby became our Lawgiver (seeIsa. 33:22). It is by obedience to His laws and His commandments that we may return one day to His presence and that of our Heavenly Father.” – For more references from this speech, also see “Alien Life” entry above.

1 Corinthians 7:22-24For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant.  23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.  24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.

Acts 20:28-30Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.  29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.  30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Isaiah 33:20-24Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.  21 But there the glorious LORD will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.  22 For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.  23 Thy tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.  24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

Read scripture know God and know that He has saved you through the shedding of His blood.  You are saved and you are only bound to Jesus not the laws of some church.
