The Light and Spirit of Christ

Moroni 7:16

Everyone possesses the Spirit of Christ, which is the means through which good may be discerned from evil.

For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge.

Moroni 7:16

That which leads to Christ is assuredly a gift from God.

For every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God.

Moroni 7:17

That which leads to evil or the denial Christ is of the devil or his angels.

But whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do evil, and believe not in Christ, and deny him, and serve not God, then ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of the devil; for after this manner doth the devil work, for he persuadeth no man to do good, no, not one; neither do his angels; neither do they who subject themselves unto him.

Moroni 7:18

This ability to discern is the light of Christ, which empowers correct judgment.

And now, my brethren, seeing that ye know the light by which ye may judge, which light is the light of Christ, see that ye do not judge wrongfully; for with that same judgment which ye judge ye shall also be judged.
