Inside Each of Us Lives a Liar, a Cheat and a Sinner - and a Saint

"Out of Character": The Good and Bad In All of Us - Maria Popova (The Atlantic)

I usually provide links to things written specfically in Mormon-themed blogs, but I was struck by this article and what it says about the struggle inherent to all of us here in mortality.  I have not read the work cited in the article, but I hope the article is thought-provoking for anyone else who reads it.

I like this. I'm coming to the conclusion that sooner or later (speaking in possible eons) we all go to heaven. Mormons have a need to spell things out, to categorize and then feel secure because we're in the celestial category. I think God is a lot more lenient than we realize. Not that He'd excuse murder, but it's not all as neatly tied up as Mormon doctrine would imply.
