Noised abroad immediately

Christ first appeared to the Nephites in 3 Nephi 11. That initial visit lasted all day and concluded with His ascension into heaven at the end of chapter 18 with the promise to return the next day. Chapter 19 records...

Satan can't hit a moving target

I don’t know why the war chapters get such a bad rap. I hear people complain about them all the time, lumping them right up there with the genealogy and “compare Isaiah” chapters. I don’t think that’s really fair. I...

A Tale of Two Covenants

I am constantly amazed at the people of Ammon. These remarkable converts who “never did fall away” are wonderful examples of quiet, determined, humble discipleship. When the Lamanite armies came to exterminate them, they...

The Immediate Atonement

The Atonement of Christ is the center of our faith. But it’s also the principle of our faith that is probably hardest to understand. Not just because it’s infinite beyond the scope of our mortal minds, but because the whole...

Exerting ourselves in our might to follow the prophets

Today, my stake joined with 108 other stakes in the Southeastern United State to enjoy a stake conference broadcasted from Salt Lake. Apparently, the South is in serious spiritual trouble, because they marshaled the General Authority A-Team. We enjoyed powerhouse...

I'm a son of Levi (and you are, too)

This past week I read the following verse in 3 Nephi 24, where Christ quotes Malachi 3. Lots of good stuff in Malachi. No wonder Christ was instructed to quote it to the Nephites. But one verse, in...
