Mosiah 25-28 – Loren Thomas joins us to talk primarily about Alma the Younger’s wickedness and subsequent conversion. How can people be led into sin by unbelievers? What caused Alma to change? Can we expect the same in our own lives? How does the Lord send help in response to the prayers of the righteous?
Mosiah 18-24 – Alma teaches the baptismal covenant. Think about how radical a proposition it was for the people at the time – learning the importance of living with others not like them, mourning with them, and standing with them. Alma and Limhi’s people are both taken captive by the Lamanites, then delivered by the Lord.
Mosiah 12-17 – Think about prophets who have faced difficulty in carrying out their respective missions. Abinadi faces incredible oppression from Noah’s court and corrupt priests. Why did Abinadi lean on the Law of Moses? Abinadi, like many prophets, seals his testimony with his life.
Mosiah 7-11 – TWiM co-host Al Doan joins the Bonanza this week as we break down the journey of Ammon, the record of the people of Zeniff, and transition into a charming king named Noah who has a run-in with the prophet Adinadi. Major Book of Mormon plot points here, folks. But we also talk about the importance of seers, overcoming endemic hatred, avoiding overzealousness, and allowing faith to work miracles in our hearts.
