If we have charity, then we will do and teach what Jesus commanded by his own mouth for all mankind to do and teach. We will eschew lust. We will eschew reviling.
To My Sister Becky
We will not resist evil. We will give to every man that asks. We will lend to all comers. We will yield without a fight in lawsuits brought against us. We will not demand our stuff back from anyone who takes it.
We will not forbid those who take our stuff from taking more. We will present our other cheek when we are struck to be struck again. We will return good for evil. We will do good things to those who hate us. We will invoke blessings upon those who execrate us. We will pray for those who personally, maliciously, and spitefully abuse us. We will not build up stores of stuff that can be corrupted or stolen for ourselves in this world, but instead we will give that which we possess more than our actual immediate needs to the poor, whereby we store up for ourselves treasure in heaven.

We will be perfect in all these things the Lord has commanded of all mankind. And so on. The Sermon defines the behavior of those who have charity, the pure love of Christ — that is, the Sermon is the behavior of those that are perfect. The Lord has asked us to do these things if we love him. He has said that if we do these things, he will come to us, and we will thereby know him, and obtain eternal life. This is the grand adventure of the gospel of Jesus — the strait gate and narrow path which leads to life, and few there be that find it.
As Amulek taught, we cannot repent in the eternal world Alma The same spirit — whether the spirit of the devil, or else the spirit of God — which possesses us in this world will possess us in the eternal world after death. Also Alma taught that to be rewarded good at the judgement, then our desires must be good — we must desire no evil — or else we shall be rewarded evil at the judgement according to our evil desires Alma [particularly v. Hence the instruction from Mormon that we pray with all the energy of heart that we may be filled with charity, which God bestows upon all who truly are followers of Jesus Christ, so that we may be pure as Jesus is pure, so that when he comes to us we will be like him.
If nothing else, we are told that it is not requisite that a man run faster than he has strength. There is no need to add to the commandments in the manner that you are doing. In other words we are commanded to become and do all that we were sent to Earth to become and do. We have done Church members a huge disservice by incorrectly insisting that the scriptural definition of perfection means something that it clearly does not. When I first read about the true meaning of New Testament perfection it was like an enormous weight had been lifted off of my shoulders.
I grew up in a home where perfectionism was a way of life both in living the gospel and in every other aspect. Frankly, it was a miserable existence because nothing I did was ever good enough. This kind of thinking flies in the face the scrpture that states men and women exist to have joy. Because we have a culture of obedience, we want a list of rules to live perfectly.
Alternatively We believe that as we progress and with the grace of God we should aspire to having no disposition to do evil. Many people in the scriptures are referred to as perfect, so why are we so afraid of the concept?

We can redefine what it means to be perfect. Praying for guidance and help is good. Instead of blathering on; stop, be silent and listen for the answer. Then go out and do all you can to approach perfection. You will make progress and mistakes. As you progress take what you learned and build on it. When you make mistakes, learn from them.
