The Sermon on the Mount to the Nephites

President Harold B. Lee: "Christ came not only into the world to make an atonement for the sins of mankind but to set an example before the world of the standard of perfection of God's law and of obedience to the Father. In his Sermon on the Mount the Master has given us somewhat of a revelation of his own character, which was perfect, or what might be said to be an 'autobiography, every syllable of which he had written down in deeds,' and in so doing has given us a blueprint for our own lives." (Stand Ye In Holy Places, pp341-342)
