78 And because of the intercession for all, all men come unto God;

79 Wherefore, they stand in the presence of him, to be judged of him, according to the truth and holiness which is in him.

80 Wherefore, the ends of the law which the Holy One hath given, unto the inflicting of the punishment which is affixed, which punishment that is affixed is in opposition to that of the happiness which is affixed, to answer the ends of the atonement;

81 For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things.

82 If not so, my first born in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass; neither wickedness; neither holiness nor misery; neither good nor bad.

83 Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one;

84 Wherefore, if it should be one body, it must needs remain as dead, having no life, neither death nor corruption, nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility.

85 Wherefore, it must needs have been created for a thing of nought;

86 Wherefore, there would have been no purpose in the end of its creation.

87 Wherefore, this thing must needs destroy the wisdom of God, and his eternal purposes; and also, the power, and the mercy, and the justice of God.

88 And if ye shall say there is no law, ye shall also say there is no sin.
