Helaman chapter 12 ... continued (#1)

Taught by Sue G.
(*click on a scripture reference to read it)

As soon as we talk about prosperity we immediately think of "The Cycle of Apostasy".  We keep hoping that a group of people will come along who don't go throughout this cycle of prosperity, pride and destruction.  Unfortunately, this group will. 

The points of doctrine in verse 22 of the true gospel set the true Church apart from all other religions.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the church which answers questions. 

In the early days of the restoration through the Prophet Joseph Smith, the Lord told the Saints that he would restore the true points of my doctrine, Doctrine and Covenants 10:62which had been lost to the world with the loss of many plain and precious things.

1 Nephi 13:29 - Satan does his best to make religion vague, indefinite, mysterious and distant, but the Lord wants his people to have much by way of facts and doctrinal details upon which to base wise and informed decisions.

Faith leads to obedience, obedience leads to additional revelation and knowledge of doctrine.  Moses 5:5-11 - Knowledge of true doctrine leads to perspective and purpose.  Perspective and purpose lead to humility spiritual strength and reliance upon God.  Consistent reliance upon God leads to exaltation.

There is great power in these points of doctrine this wonderful Gospel doctrine. D&C 131:6 - In fact, the Lord said   in this context "ignorance" refers to gospel knowledge. As members of the Lords true Church, we are blessed with a great number of points of doctrine of the plan of Salvation, which doctrines stretch all the from way our pre-mortal life with our Heavenly Parents, to the opportunity for exaltation in the highest degrees of glory in the celestial kingdom.  Thus, we have a finely turned sense of purpose of every stage of progression along the way.

Repentance leads us to Christ's Church.
