D&C 20—We discuss the organization of the Church on April 6, 1830. Section 20 deals exclusively with Church organization and governance, and is full of all sorts of great doctrinal nuggets. What has the Lord commanded us to do as members of His Church? Jared Gillins is with us. It’s his first time, so be gracious!
John 3, 4 – Jesus teaches Nicodemus that we must be born of water and the Spirit to enter the kingdom of God. Why? Why does baptism matter? Why do ordinances matter? Jesus later visits the Samaritan woman at the well and teaches about living water, the way to find true life and salvation. What can we learn from the way Jesus taught? Al Doan is with us for the first time in a long time.
Matthew 3-4: Rachel and David Zobell join us to discuss John the Baptist’s role in serving a forerunner of Christ. How did John prepare the people? Why was he necessary? What did he preach? Why was Christ baptized when He was perfect? Satan tempts Jesus in the wilderness, but Jesus resists. How can fasting strengthen us?
We break down the Lord’s promises regarding missionary work. How can we strengthen our resolve to be member missionaries? How can missionary work be more effective? The Doctrine and Covenants teaches us a ton about this issue. Patricia Auxier joins us.
Moroni 7-10 – Moroni closes the Book of Mormon explaining the value of good judgment, of coming unto Christ, and of expecting miracles. The baptism of infants is decried. We are all challenged to ponder the words in the Book of Mormon and prayerfully consider their truthfulness. Will you take the challenge?
