"The Great Mediator of All Men," 2 Nephi 2:26-30

2 Nephi 2:26-30

In these verses is one of the undergirding doctrines that supports all of humanity, not exclusively the Latter-day Saints. As the fall of man necessarily and universally removed him from God's presence, so it is that the redemption through the Holy Messiah overcomes the effects of that enough in this life to make men free agents for themselves to choose between good and evil. At the most basic level, the power to discern is a gift from God available to all men.

This is similar to the idea that I had discussed in an earlier post (the post was actually made in Spanish but was in reference to verses 9 and 10), that Christ had interceded on behalf of all, or in other words, prepared a path of redemption for all men. Even in verse 27, he is called "the great Mediator of all men".
