Christ Will Show Unto You The Greater Things

Mormon compiled the Book of Mormon; he started with the journey of Lehi and his family and abridged the entire record up to Mormon, Chapter 7. All of this took place sometime between 385 and 400 AD.  While writing this abridgement of the history of his people, he found the small plates of Nephi, and… Read More »

Groups in the Book of Mormon

Groups are very important to understand, they NEVER apply to any individual. A group could almost be considered a trend or a fashion for understandings sake. A lot of people are going to be doing it, in fact an entire generation may even be defined by it. But still, no one person is bound to… Read More »

Types in the Book of Mormon

Nephi is a good place to start

A Christ Centered Relationship

Understanding Agency and Liberty usually comes in stages, with those stages matching our stewardship. Although the different stages overlap and may not always come in the exact same order for everyone the basic path is quite common. The first stewardship is over ourselves, as we become our own agent.  We have to learn to control… Read More »

False Prophets, False Priests, and False Teachers

There are many who claim to speak for the Lord in these the last days. Many who take upon them His name, yet He doesn’t claim them.
