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 23-29—The sons of Mosiah teach thousands of Lamanites and witness great changes in heart, becoming the Anti-Nephi-Lehies. They put down their weapons, sacrificing themselves rather than shed blood. How do we become truly converted? What is implied by “truly” vs plain ol’ “conversion”? Bill Doolittle is back!
Alma 13-16—Alma and Amulek continue their preaching among the people of Ammonihah, discussing the power of the priesthood and the doctrine of foreordination. Eventually, once-enemy Zeezrom is converted and baptized. The Lamanites destroy Ammonihah.
Alma 17-22 – The sons of Mosiah preach the gospel to the Lamanites. Ammon teaches Lamoni, who is converted along with his people. Aaron is brought out of prison and teaches Lamoni’s father. How can we be more effective missionaries? Can we forsake all sin to know God? Where do we find the strength to be obedient?
