Book of Mormon Lesson 21: “Alma … Did Judge Righteous Judgments”

Mosiah 29; Alma 1-4—Mosiah teaches principles of good government. Your teacher might talk about different forms of government. Push for the plutocracy, folks. It’s the only way!

Alma the Younger becomes chief judge and rejects priestcraft. How does living righteous principles help us to be effective citizens and shun wickedness and priestcraft?

Book of Mormon Lesson 20: “My Soul Is Pained No More”

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?

Book of Mormon Lesson 26 – “Converted unto the Lord”

Alma 23-29 – Thousands of those converted through the Sons of Mosiah change their name to the Anti-Nephi-Lehies, bury their weapons of war, and seek shelter and inclusion with the Nephite people. How can we bury our “weapons of war”? Why is it so important to be converted through Christ and not other means? How do we continually give thanks to God?

Book of Mormon Lesson 22 – “Have Ye Received His Image in Your Countenances?”

Alma 5-7 – Alma exhorts the Saints to experience a “might change” of heart; he encourages everyone to improve his or her “countenance.” How does that apply to us? How do we focus on self-improvement and have the faith to heed prophetic counsel?

Book of Mormon Lesson 21 – “Alma Did Just Righteous Judgments”

Mosiah 29; Alma 1-4 – What are good principles of government? Why did the Sons of Mosiah refuse to be kings? What did Alma face as Chief Judge? The pride cycle commences. How can we avoid pride and elect righteous leaders?

Book of Mormon Lesson 20 – “My Soul Is Pained No More”

Mosiah 25-28; Alma 36 – Alma and Limhi unify with the Nephites; Alma organizes the Church; Alma the Younger and the Sons of Mosiah lead away many before being struck dumb and repenting. How can we be truly converted to the Gospel? What does it mean to fully repent?
