Another quote about seeing God

posted Mar 16, 2017 14:25:29 by GospelMama
I am amazed at how often we are told we can see God, it just takes eyes to see. I didn't notice it before because I had no idea.

This is from the October 2007 General Conference talk by L. Whitney Clayton.

The Savior taught, “And blessed are all the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (3 Nephi 12:8). The promises of the gospel are uplifting and ennobling, even exalting. We receive those promises by covenants which are conditioned on our living lives of purity and morality. When we live right and seek to purify our hearts, we draw closer to God and the Spirit. The condition of our heart determines how much evidence of divinity we see in the world now and qualifies us for the eventual realization of the promise that the pure “shall see God.” Ours is a quest for purity. Thus, the Apostle John wrote:

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

“And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure” (1 John 3:2–3).

I did not realize how similar 1 john 3:1-3 is to Moroni 7:48.

Interestingly one cannot be quoting the other.
