  1. I had a question on this section of the manual. 13 - When the Lord commanded Lehi and his family to obtain the plates of brass from Laban, He did not give specific instructions on how to accomplish this commandment. Was the Holy Spirit operating on his own initiative when he gave a specific instruction to kill Laban to get the plates?
  2. What kind of beings were the sons of God in attendance at the premortal Council in Heaven?
  3. For Heavenly Father. He glorified himself in the same way (of plural marriage, verse 31).
  4. Yes, but the manual should have been much more specific because it could have been one of the 11 others too.
  5. Please don't underestimate our songs. Come Follow Me says on page xxiii - Sacred music invites the Spirit and teaches doctrine in a memorable way.
  6. My mistake. I had the font a little to big and skipped over the part that JHLPROF quoted from the manual.
  7. I had a question on this section of the manual. 439 - In June 1829, Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer, and Martin Harris asked for permission to be the three witnesses of whom the Book of Mormon prophesied. Which Book of Mormon prophecy? Pete
  8. That's why it's highly touted in an LDS revelation. Doctrine and Covenants 132 is about plural marriage (verses 1-3). Several of the benefits of are innumerable seed (verse 30) and enhanced glorification (verse 31). Heavenly Father glorified himself in the same way (verse 31). Emma (and by extension any wife) would be destroyed if she did not abide in this covenant that Joseph Smith (and by extension other husbands) was said to have received (verse 54).
  9. Weren't the special 3 disciples who did not see death the foremost ones?
  10. Ok. But I figured it could have been any of the 11 other disciples.
  11. I have no idea about using wide or very wide margins.
  12. Wrong verse. And Nephi arose and went forth, and bowed himself before the Lord and did kiss his feet.
  13. According to Doctrine and Covenants 132:19-20, resurrection then exaltation then godhood. Ye shall come forth in the first resurrection; and if it be after the first resurrection, in the next resurrection; and ... they shall pass by the angels, and the gods, which are set there, to their exaltation and glory in all things ... Then shall they be gods, because they have no end; therefore shall they be from everlasting to everlasting,
  14. I had a question on this section of the manual. 420 - One prophet saw Him as a premortal spirit, and another saw His birth and ministry in a vision. One stood on a wall to proclaim the signs of His birth and His death, and another knelt before His resurrected body, touching the wounds in His hands, feet, and side. Which specific prophet knelt before Christ's resurrected body and touched his wounds? From what I read in 3 Nephi 11, all the people did but there is no mention of the first. Pete
  15. I had a question on this section of the manual. 416 - Christmas is a natural time to think about receiving gifts. Perhaps family members could wrap gifts for each other that represent the "gifts of God" mentioned in Moroni 10:9–16. What Christmas gifts from family members can we earn by our own merits and which we cannot? Pete
