Earth Life: More about Overcoming Sin

In the Mormon view, mankind’s purpose here on earth is to continue to struggle to become more like our perfect Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Spiritually immature as ever and now without the benefits that come from being in God’s immediate presence, all of us here on earth are sinners, and with each sin the distance between us and God grows greater. Sin — which Mormons define as acting in ways known to be contrary to God’s will — makes us unhappy in this life and disqualifies us to stand in God’s presence in the next.
