Someone once asked me, “Do you believe that everyone deserved salvation?” I said, “Yes, even Lucifer deserves salvation.” Heavenly father will know when you are genuine and contrite within your heart when asking for forgiveness. This was my response through tears falling down my cheeks.
I don’t believe in the death penalty, no matter what. Being reformed for one person may not be for another. We all accept forgiveness and give forgiveness in different ways. Even if it takes an inmate a lifetime to reform, at least they put forward that effort.
