" These gifts are bestowed on those that merit such things. "Men are adjudged and accounted righteous, that is, they are justified after they keep the commandments; it is then, and then only, that they received the needed outpouring of God's grace through which they receive the gift of righteousness."
- Bruce R. McConkie
Romans 5:20 - 21 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
