A Thought

The time is long overdue for a massive flooding of the earth with the Book of Mormon for the many reasons which the Lord has given. In this age of electronic media and mass distribution of the printed word, God will hold us accountable if we do not now move the Book of Mormon in a monumental way.

- Ezra Taft Benson


Brother Beardall’s Gospel Doctrine Outlines

Lesson 31 - Firm in the Faith of Christ - Alma 43–52
We begin our discussion with the reasons why the Nephites went to war against the Lamanites and under what circumstances the Lord justifies war. The rise of Amalikiah and those who would usurp the freedom of the people. Captain Moroni raises the Title of Liberty and rallies the people. Pahoran becomes the new chief judge. The rise of the Kingmen, those who would usurp Nephite liberty. The Lamanites, under the head of Amalikiah, begin to have success against the Nephites.

Lesson 30 - The Great Plan of Happiness - Alma 40–42
Alma continues to teach and counsel his son Corianton. Alma teaches about the time between death and the resurrection. He teaches the doctrine of the resurrection. He counsels Corianton about wickedness and its failure to provide lasting happiness. We learn that the fall of Adam and Eve was a great blessing in preparing us for eternal salvation and that through repentance we have claim on mercy through the great atonement.

Lesson 29 - Give Ear To My Words - Alma 36-39
As Alma approached the end of his life, he gathered his sons together to counsel and teach them. He taught Helaman and Shiblon many things to guide them through life and in carrying out their ministry.  Corianton was chastised for leaving his mission and taking up with the harlot Isabel.  He was commanded to repent and return to the ways of righteousness.

Lesson 28 - The Word Is in Christ unto Salvation - Alma 32-35
Alma teaches the poor among the Zoramites. He teaches them that adversity and humility can prepare a person to receive the truth. Alma continues with a wonderful sermon on faith and how each person can develop that faith into a sure knowledge. Amulek teaches the Zoramites that this life is the time to prepare to meet God.

Lesson 27 - All Things Denote There Is a God - Alma 30-31
We discuss the modern philosophy of naturalism and compare it to the teachings of the anti-Christ, Korihor. Alma counters Korihor's philosophy and teaches the true source of knowledge. We discuss how to recognize anti-Christs in our day and how to combat their teachings. Alma goes on a mission to the Zoramites and learns that they are corrupting true principles.
