Alma 40-42—How does a failure to understand the plan of salvation make us weaker in the face of temptation? How did understanding death and resurrection help Corianton? How will it help you? How does understanding the atonement change our course? Also, an attention activity we actually like! Bill Doolittle is with us.
Alma 30 & 31—It’s a lesson on some of the darker corners of the kingdom! Korihor comes and stirs up trouble. What exactly is an anti-Christ? Alma leads a delegation to the Zoramites. While we harp on Rameumptom and the like, what about how the Zoramites do not speak of the things of God unless they are at church? That’s a very interesting bit of their theology that we don’t talk about. Dustin Homer is here to make sense of all of it for us. He’s smarter than Geoff.
Alma 30-31 – Korihor, an anti-Christ, leads the people astray. He challenges Alma on the very existence of God and need for an Atonement. How can we learn to recognize and refute false teachings? Alma leads a mission to the apostate Zoramites, demonstrating compassion in the face of unfortunate circumstances.
