Book of Mormon Study - Helaman 8

Verses 1-4 show how the guilty take the truth hard. But, it's refreshing to see the majority of the people opt for righteousness.

Nephi doesn't hold anything back. He's got his chance, so he's taking it. He reminds them of all that they did know, the teachings of the prophets of old. Can they be denied?

In verse 12 he basically says, God gave Moses power, don't you think He has the power to give to me to prophesy as well? That is a truth in our times, too. We have a modern day prophet. God has the power to have prophets on the earth at all times that He wishes.

I thought verse 25 was interesting: you either lay up treasures or wrath in heaven. No in between.

I love Nephi and his boldness. I also love the way he teaches them by what they already know and have access to.

What did you think/learn today?
