Lamb of God
From MormonWikiChrist is the "Lamb of God", which, through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, "…[took] away the sin of the world."1 He is the Redeemer of the World, the One who works out the infinite and eternal atonement.
As a Lamb, he was sacrificed for men, and salvation only comes because of the shedding of his blood.2 Those who gain eternal life will have done so by accepting the gospel of Jesus Christ and being baptized by the proper priesthood authority and who have taken on the covenants in the holy Temple of God; those who have repented and made themselves "clean in the sight of God", and who continually strive each day to live a life worthy of the Savior's presence in eternal life. When each has done all that the Savior has asked, then through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, He will make up the difference.
