Hmmm, interesting perspective, many facet's to it. I have always been intrigued by the scripture that says, 'I cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance", (or close to that) but yet he sees us sin everyday...so does he see it differently than we do? Does he see us as little children who transgress (not sin)? Does he see through the atonement? Also Christ asking Father to "forgive them, for they know not what they do". I know the footnotes refer to his murderers...But they knew they murder, they had to, it was their job. They didn't, couldn't know they where murdering The Christ. Is there a deeper request regarding "not knowing..." on behalf of all of Fathers children as a LAST universal part and all encompassing act of the Atonement? Lots of fun things to ponder...

Hi Tyce! I used to get freaked out when I read those verses that say he cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance. But then he says in the very next verse that is why we have to repent. For myself I don't believe it's possible to repent enough, but I'm relieved by the knowledge that he looks on our heart and the desires and intents of the heart

... excellent! I have had experiences lately that touch on your comment. If we say "I did my best", that may or may not be true. If we say "I did the best I could with what I had"...we acknowledge our attempts and weaknesses. If we do the best we can with what we have in the repentance process, we also acknowledge Father and Son, becoming more One. They accept that attempt and offering, which is enough, even if potentially lacking. It's the same as a parent accepting our children's best efforts, although potentially lacking, we receive their gift with Joy and gratitude for doing their best with what they had.
