“God Is No Respecter of Persons”

Acts 10:34–35

34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

President M. Russell Ballard said:

“In the New Testament we read that Peter, the head of the Church after the Savior’s Resurrection and Ascension, was informed in a vision that the gospel is for all mankind. He said, ‘Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him’ (Acts 10:34–35). This same message appears in the Book of Mormon and in the Doctrine and Covenants. Every soul is to have an opportunity to hear and then accept or reject the gospel.”
