LDS Guy 1986 Posted March 20, 2011 Share Posted March 20, 2011 So, to open a whole new can of worms (since I have nothing better to do), tonight at Stake Conference we have a GA presiding Elder Wilford W. Andersen of the Seventy. He opened the floor for questions pertaining to salvation, the spirit pressed upon my to ask about D&C 84:41 because I wanted to know and because many here have asked I seek further explanation and no better source of information than a living prophet of God.He response paraphrased for brevity (and the fact I can't write down word for word that quickly) is to break the covenant and turn away from it completely is to live in violation of the covenants made without repentance and to die within your sins. If you do this with any covenant (not just the priesthood covenant he also mentioned the temple covenants and the baptismal covenants) and die without ever repenting you have broken the covenant and turned away from it completely and you cannot be forgiven in this life or the next. He said the reason why, is that when you take these covenants (especially the temple covenants you start the process of learning everything that God knows (he called it the graduate program for everything) if you start this process and turn away from it and never repent you cannot receive forgiveness for this in this life or the next. So this is what a GA had to say on the matter. What do you guys think? Link to comment
