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!
1, 2 Peter; Jude – Kurt Francom joins us to discuss how we can endure affliction and understand trials. How do you weather affliction? What do you do to overcome it? Peter encourages us to have our calling and election made sure. What does that mean?
Matt 13 – Why did Jesus speak in parables and how could a learned ruling class not understand these parables? This lesson focuses on parables, in general, with particular emphasis on the Parable of the Sower. We also talk about many of the parables found in this chapter of Matthew. Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS joins us.
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.
