Book of Mormon Class

Alma chapters 15-16
Taught by Sue G.

Alma 15
Alma And Amulek are sent to Sidom where they establish the Church among the refugees from Amonihah and the faithful throughout the region. Alma heals Zeezrom who is baptized and becomes a teacher among the people Amulek has sacrificed all for the sake of Christ. He goes with Alma to his home in Zarahelma.

In the example of Zeezrom before he was healed by Amulek we see the agony of guilt and the deliverance through repentance and obedience the spirit can transform the guilt in an anguished soul into the joy of redemption. 

President Boyd K. Packer taught that Physical illness can be related to spiritual ailments "There are spiritual disorders and spiritual diseases that can cause intense suffering. The body and the spirit of man are bound together often, very often, when there are disorders, it is very difficult to tell which is which".

Do we have a Zeezrom element within us that needs to be reformed and converted into an element of strength in building the Kingdom of God.

Alma 16
Perhaps you remember that  when Alma and the sons of Mosiah were converted, the four sons of Mosiah requested the privilege of going on a mission to the Lamanites that permission were granted. (Mosiah 28:5-9)

Alma 16:13
And Alma and Amulek went forth preaching repentance to the people in their Temples and in their sanctuaries, and also in their synagogues, which were built after the manner of the jews. They taught everyone, not discriminating. The Lord poured out his Spirit to all the Land.
