For I the Lord cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance;
Nevertheless, he that repents and does the commandments of the Lord shall be forgiven.
Doctrine and Covenants 1:31-32
"Are you taking full advantage of the redeeming power of repentance in your life so that you can have greater peace and joy?" asked Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve during the October 2000 general conference. "Feelings of turmoil and despondency often signal a need for repentance. Also the lack of the spiritual direction you seek in your life could result from broken laws. If needed, full repentance will put your life together. It will solve all of the complex spiritual pains that come from transgression."
