Helaman 6-11 – Pride cycle for days. The Lamanites become more righteous than the prideful Nephites. Nephi calls the people to repentance and prays for rain. How do we keep ourselves in check? How do we avoid pride? Dustin Homer is with us.
Alma 32-34—Alma gives his great treatise on faith and the nurturing of testimony. How can we “experiment” on the word of God? How can the word of God take root in our hearts? Frankly, there’s more material here than one lesson can handle, and for our part, far more material than we can discuss in a quick podcast. Still, amazing stuff!
Mosiah 1-3 – King Benjamin gives his great discourse. We focus on how Benjamin taught us to remember how indebted we are to our Father in Heaven, and how we can regularly express gratitude for our innumerable blessings. What do we learn from Benjamin’s reign? Bill Doolittle is with us.
Matthew 18; Luke 10 – The Good Samaritan is amazing. What can we learn from it? We deep dive on this fabled parable. How do we become as little children and why do we throw around that terminology so much? The Savior discusses the parable of the unmerciful servant. How must we show mercy always? Erik Johnson is with us.
Judges 2; 4; 6; 13-16 – How does Israel fall into cycles of apostasy? How do we do the same and how can we avoid apostasy? From where did Samson gather his strength? What separated Nazarites from Israel? Why did Barak need Deborah by his side? We talk about friends, family, covenants, and faith as stakes that keep us strong. Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS joins us.
Ether 12-13 – Moroni explains the power of faith. The Lord teaches us that He gives us weakness so that we may be humble and stretch our faith. Ether prophesies regarding the promised land. The Jaredites are destroyed.
Alma 36-39 – Alma teaches his sons, Helaman, Shiblon, and Corianton, about the importance of being humble. Corianton receives counsel and guidance regarding his sins. The Atonement is explained. The power of repentance is real. How can we learn from all of Alma’s sons so that we may be stronger, more faithful people?
Alma 32-34 – Faith! Alma teaches the Zoramites the value of humility and faith. He uses the example of a seed to demonstrate how faith is to be centered around Christ and the Atonement, how it is individual, and how it will grow when nurtured and die when ignored. Amulek similarly testifies, teaching the proper way to pray and demonstrate faith in the Atonement.
