D&C 93:1; “Verily, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul who forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments, shall see my face and know that I am.”
1 Corinthians 4:3-6; “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
We know and experience Jesus through our daily lives of walking with Him and obedience, yes. However the Church believes that you cannot have this relationship with Him up and until you obey every single ordinance they come up with. Because the Church’s rules evolve it’s impossible to ever know the real Jesus.
