Speaking to your comments on eat, drink, and die. Living the gospel is a race of endurance. We may pass milestones or markers but the race is not yet finished. Just like the tortoise and the hare. You see how ahead you are and decide it’s okay to slack off. Perhaps this parallels the idea of being born again. Even though we may be baptized or sealed in the temple, that does not give us carte blanche to act how we will thinking we have been saved and are now exempt from further consequences. Great podcast as always.
