Thought of the Day “and So Forth”

Alma 22:14; “…but the sufferings and death of Christ atone for their sins, through faith and repentance, and so forth…”

You have got to be kidding me. Seriously?

What if God gave you a set of instructions and while quickly flipping through a laundry list of things you need to figure out in order to get saved you come upon the directive “and so forth”?

What would you do?

How would you make sense of what this god must have meant and what would you do if you found out you’re wrong?

Are there do-overs?

You better start praying for that because if you’re not in the business of reading minds then  you’re going to be in big trouble.

Alma 22:14; “And since man had fallen he could not merit anything of himself; but the sufferings and death of Christ atone for their sins, through faith and repentance, and so forth; and that he breaketh the bands of death, that the grave shall have no victory, and that the sting of death should be swallowed up in the hopes of glory; and Aaron did expound all these things unto the king.”
