Alma 11:34 Shall He Save His People in Their Sins?

34 And Zeezrom said again: Shall he save his people in their sins? And Amulek answered and said unto him: I say unto you he shall not, for it is impossible for him to deny his word.
(Alma 11:34)
The intent of the plan of happiness is not for us to sin and then to be forgiven; it is for us become the kind of people who don’t commit those sins any more.  Our sins can be washed away in the legalistic sense that the slate is wiped clean and those sins are not held against us any more (justification).  More importantly, they can be washed away in the sense that we overcome them and do not commit them any more (sanctification).
