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 36 - On the Morrow Come I into the World - 3 Nephi 1–7
The prophesied signs of Christ's birth were given and the believers challenged. The rise of the Gadianton robbers and the people band together to destroy them. A few years later many returned to their pride and great inequalities became commonplace. The destruction of the government and the people band together in tribes for protection.

Lesson 35 - Repent and Return unto the Lord - Helaman 13–16
Samuel speaks to the Nephites of Zarahemla from the wall. He calls them to repentance.  He reminds them that they are guilty of the sin of ingratitude and that they are following blind guides rather than the prophets of God. Samuel prophecies of the coming of Christ. A few of the Nephites repent, but most remain in their wickedness.

Lesson 34 - How Could You Have Forgotten Your God? - Helaman 6–12
Gadianton's band is reestablished among the people. Characteristics of secret combinations. The principle of agency: choices and their consequences. In Helaman 12 we see listed the weaknesses of fallen man and the consequences of giving in to the "natural man". We see the blessings of righteousness through the example of Nephi's life. Moral conditions decay among the Nephites and they ripen for destruction.

Lesson 33 - A Sure Foundation - Helaman 1–5
A succession crisis developed after the death of the chief judge Pahoran. The Lamanites, led by apostates, invaded the lands of the Nephites. Gadianton becomes leader of the secret band of Kishkumen. Many Nephites migrate to the land northward. The wickedness of many Nephites continues to cause a both civil crisis and troubles with the Lamanites. Nephi, and his brother Lehi, go on missions in an effort to call the people to repentance.

Lesson 32 - They Did Obey … Every Word of Command with Exactness - Alma 53–63
The war between the Nephites and the Lamanites continues. Helaman persuades the people of Ammon to keep their covenant and not take up arms. 2000 of their sons take up arms in their defense. The sons of Helaman are successful in battle because of their righteousness. Helaman sends a letter to Pahoran chastising the government for their lack of support to the troops.
