Keep the Commandments

by Scott D. Hendricks

Do you want to acquire a clear conscience, which will not accuse you of anything on the day of Judgement?  Keep diligently all the commandments of the Lord, and you will succeed.

*    *    *

Not only does he who fulfills the commandments acquire an unaccusing conscience, but he also becomes Godlike and attains union with God.
