Article of Faith 2

2 We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.
This article might seem easily understood, but there are religions that believe that because of Adam and Eve's transgression in the Garden of Eden, we are all still under condemnation. However, in our religion we believe that each person is accountable for their own sins, not for the sins of others.

An important part of this belief is that we are accountable for our sins. We do believe that at the judgement day we will have to answer for our actions, and will be judged by them. If we have repented of our sins, they will not be held against us. Jesus Christ's atonement pays for our sins if we have fully repented.
