Moses 3 4

  1. 1. Moses 3-4 (Compiled by Doug Maughan)
  2. 3. Seventh Day- Moses 3:1-3: Gen. 2:1-3; <ul><li>The God’s rested on the Seventh Day or Period of time… </li></ul>
  3. 5. The Earth and the solar system were central players in the plan: <ul><li>When the earth was framed and brought into existence and man was placed upon it, it was near the throne of our Father in heaven. And when man fell... the earth fell into space, and took up its abode in this planetary system, and the sun became our light... This is the glory the earth came from, and when it is glorified it will return again unto the presence of the Father, and it will dwell there, and these intelligent beings that I am looking at, if they live worthy of it, will dwell upon this earth. (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses , Vol.17, p.144.) </li></ul>
  4. 6. The Throne of God Kolob Oliblish
  5. 7. Earth Organized Near Kolob <ul><li>...this earth, which had fled and fallen from where it was first organized, near the planet Kolob. (John Taylor, The Mormon , August 26, 1857.) </li></ul><ul><li>The earth no longer [at the transgression of Adam] retained its standing in the presence of Jehovah; but was hurled into the immensity of space; and there to remain till it has filled up the time of its bondage to sin and Satan. It was immediately cursed, and Adam, and Eve were obliged to procure their food and raiment by the sweat of the brow. The beasts became ferocious, and went prowling about the wilderness seeking the inferior animals for a prey. </li></ul>
  6. 9. Earth Fell… <ul><li>But says one, wherein did the sin of man affect the whole creation? We answer; that Adam was placed in the garden or capitol of the whole earth, and power was given unto him to sway his scepter over all things upon earth; therefore, when he fell from the presence of the Lord, the whole of his dominions fell also... ( Times and Seasons , Vol.3, p.672.) </li></ul>
  7. 10. Moses 3:1-6
  8. 12. Moses 3:8. Where Was the Garden of Eden? <ul><li>President Brigham Young taught: &quot;In the beginning, after this earth was prepared for man, the Lord commenced his work upon what is now called the American continent, where the Garden of Eden was made&quot; (Discourses of Brigham Young, 102). </li></ul><ul><li>President Heber C. Kimball, who was a counselor in the First Presidency, said: &quot;The spot chosen for the garden of Eden was Jackson County, in the State of Missouri, where [the city of] Independence now stands; it was occupied in the morn of creation by Adam&quot; (in Journal of Discourses, 10:235). </li></ul>
  9. 18. Moses 3:9. The Trees Became Living Souls (Doctrines of Salvation, 1:63). <ul><li>Moses 3:9 indicates that &quot;every tree … became also a living soul.&quot; Man, animals, and birds &quot;were also living souls&quot; (see Moses 3:7, 19). Doctrine and Covenants 88:15 teaches that a soul is a spirit and a body combined. On the subject of living things having souls, President Joseph Fielding Smith wrote: &quot;The idea prevails in general, I believe, in the religious world where the gospel truth is misunderstood, that man is the only being on the earth that has what is called a soul or a spirit. We know this is not the case, for the Lord has said that not only has man a spirit, and is thereby a living soul, but likewise the beasts of the field, the fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea have spirits, and hence are living souls&quot; </li></ul>
  10. 19. Moses 3:9. What Do the Two Trees Represent? <ul><li>Elder Bruce R. McConkie wrote: &quot;The scriptures set forth that there were in the Garden of Eden two trees. One was the tree of life, which figuratively refers to eternal life; the other was the tree of knowledge of good and evil, which figuratively refers to how and why and in what manner mortality and all that appertains to it came into being&quot; (A New Witness for the Articles of Faith [1985], 86). </li></ul><ul><li>Pearl of Great Price Student Manual, p. 10 </li></ul>
  11. 20. Moses 3:10-15
  12. 21. The Fall of Man [Moses 3:16-17.] <ul><li>I’m very, very grateful that in The Book of Mormon, and I think elsewhere in our scriptures, the Fall of Adam has not been called a sin. It wasn’t a sin...What did Adam do? The very thing the Lord wanted him to do; and I hate to hear anybody call it a sin, for it wasn’t a sin. Did Adam sin when he took of the forbidden fruit? I say unto you, no, he did not! Now, let me refer to what is written in the Book of Moses in regard to the command God gave to Adam. </li></ul>
  13. 22. The Fall of Man <ul><li>“ Now this is the way I interpret that : The Lord said to Adam, here is the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. If you want to stay here, then you can not eat that fruit. If you want to stay here then I forbid you to eat it. But you may act for yourself, and you may eat it if you want to. And if you eat it you will die. </li></ul><ul><li>I see a great difference between transgressing a law and committing a sin.”(Joseph Fielding Smith, Fall -Atonement -Resurrection-Sacrament,” in Charge to Religious Educators, p.124) </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  14. 23. Fall of Adam <ul><ul><ul><li>The process by which mankind became mortal on this earth. The event is recorded in Gen. 2, 3, 4; and Moses 3, 4. The fall of Adam is one of the most important occurrences in the history of man. Before the fall, Adam and Eve had physical bodies but no blood. There were no sin, no death, and no children among any of the earthly creations. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 24. Fall of Adam <ul><ul><ul><li>With the eating of the &quot;forbidden fruit,&quot; Adam and Eve became mortal, sin entered, blood formed in their bodies, and death became a part of life. Adam became the &quot;first flesh&quot; upon the earth (Moses 3:7), meaning that he and Eve were the first to become mortal. After Adam fell, the whole creation fell and became mortal. Adam's fall brought both physical and spiritual death into the world upon all mankind (Hel. 14:16–17). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>( Bible Dictionary | F Fall of Adam : Entry ) </li></ul>
  16. 25. Elder Bruce C. Hafen, The Atonement: All for All, Ensign (CR), May 2004, p.97 <ul><li>The Fall was not a disaster. It wasn’t a mistake or an accident. It was a deliberate part of the plan of salvation. We are God’s spirit “offspring,” sent to earth “innocent” of Adam’s transgression. Yet our Father’s plan subjects us to temptation and misery in this fallen world as the price to comprehend authentic joy. </li></ul>
  17. 26. Elder Bruce C. Hafen, The Atonement: All for All, Ensign (CR), May 2004, p.97 <ul><li>Without tasting the bitter, we actually cannot understand the sweet. We require mortality’s discipline and refinement as the “next step in [our] development” toward becoming like our Father. But growth means growing pains. It also means learning from our mistakes in a continual process made possible by the Savior’s grace, which He extends both during and “after all we can do.” </li></ul>
  18. 27. Elder Bruce C. Hafen, The Atonement: All for All, Ensign (CR), May 2004, p.97 <ul><li>Adam and Eve learned constantly from their often harsh experience. They knew how a troubled family feels. Think of Cain and Abel. Yet because of the Atonement, they could learn from their experience without being condemned by it. Christ’s sacrifice didn’t just erase their choices and return them to an Eden of innocence. That would be a story with no plot and no character growth. His plan is developmental—line upon line, step by step, grace for grace. </li></ul>
  19. 28. My New Life clip
  20. 29. <ul><li>&quot;Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.&quot;—I Corinthians, 2:9. </li></ul><ul><li>Elder John W. Taylor (October 1903) </li></ul>
  21. 30. <ul><li>Learn from inspiring individuals who have made peace with their challenges and live with joy amid adversity. A lovely woman with an aggressive terminal disease consistently found joy in life. She understood the plan of happiness, had received the temple ordinances, and was doing her best to qualify for the promised blessings. Her personal journal records: &quot;It is a beautiful fall day. I picked up the mail and sat down on the swing. I was so happy and content in the warm sun, the sweet smell of nature and the trees around me. I just sat and gloried in the fact that I am still alive on this beautiful earth. . . . The Lord is so good to me. How I thank him that I am still here and feeling so good. </li></ul>
  22. 31. <ul><li>I am soooooo happy I just want to shout and dance through this beautiful house as the sun streams into the big windows. I love being alive.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>A valiant mother courageously fighting a debilitating illness spent untold hours laboriously completing a large, challenging needlepoint work of art. It was a gift to a couple experiencing trials. For the couple, it is a priceless treasure, a constant reminder of the precious fruits of resolute effort in the face of adversity, an enduring message of hope bound in the bonds of pure love and willing sacrifice. </li></ul><ul><li>Finding Joy In Life: Elder Richard G. Scott (April 1996) </li></ul>
  23. 32. <ul><li>And the way is prepared from the fall of man, and salvation is free. </li></ul><ul><li>( Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 2 : 4 ) </li></ul>
  24. 33. The Nature of Fallen Man <ul><li>Romans 3:23 </li></ul><ul><li>1 Ne. 10:6 </li></ul><ul><li>Mosiah 3:19 </li></ul><ul><li>Mosiah 16:5 </li></ul><ul><li>Alma 42:6-18 </li></ul><ul><li>D&C 20:20 </li></ul>
  25. 34. Consequences of the Fall <ul><li>Moses 4:15-5:11 </li></ul>
  26. 35. <ul><li>&quot;Note that the curse was not placed upon Adam, but upon the ground for Adam's sake. Rather than a curse upon Adam, it was a blessing to him&quot; (MGR-in Conference Report, Oct. 1976, 168; or Ensign, Nov. 1976, 125). </li></ul><ul><li>President Brigham Young said that the effects of the Fall were universal: &quot;Then came the curse upon the fruit, upon the vegetables, and upon our mother earth; and it came upon the creeping things, upon the grain in the field, the fish in the sea, and upon all things pertaining to this earth&quot; (in Journal of Discourses, 10:312). From the time of the Fall, thorns and thistles have grown spontaneously from the ground. Only through persistent labor could Adam plant, </li></ul>
  27. 36. <ul><li>nourish, and harvest crops from the ground and thereby assure his survival. Before the Fall, he had been charged to &quot;dress&quot; and &quot;keep&quot; the Garden of Eden (Moses 3:15). After the Fall, he was told that he would have to work by the sweat of his brow to obtain his sustenance. </li></ul><ul><li>Pearl of Great Price Student Manual, p. 14 </li></ul>
  28. 37. <ul><li>19 And after Adam and Eve had partaken of the forbidden fruit they were driven out of the garden of Eden, to till the earth. </li></ul><ul><li>20 And they have brought forth children; yea, even the family of all the earth. </li></ul><ul><li>21 And the days of the children of men were prolonged, according to the will of God, that they might repent while in the flesh; wherefore, their state became a state of probation, </li></ul><ul><li>( Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 2 : 19 - 21 ) </li></ul>
  29. 38. <ul><li>22 And now, behold, if Adam had not transgressed he would not have fallen, but he would have remained in the garden of Eden. And all things which were created must have remained in the same state in which they were after they were created; and they must have remained forever, and had no end. </li></ul><ul><li>23 And they would have had no children; wherefore they would have remained in a state of innocence, having no joy, for they knew no misery; doing no good, for they knew no sin. </li></ul><ul><li>24 But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of him who knoweth all things. </li></ul><ul><li>25 Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy. ( Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 2 : 22 - 25 ) </li></ul>
  30. 39. <ul><li>6 For as death hath passed upon all men, to fulfil the merciful plan of the great Creator, there must needs be a power of resurrection, and the resurrection must needs come unto man by reason of the fall; and the fall came by reason of transgression; and because man became fallen they were cut off from the presence of the Lord. </li></ul><ul><li>7 Wherefore, it must needs be an infinite atonement—save it should be an infinite atonement this corruption could not put on incorruption. Wherefore, the first judgment which came upon man must needs have remained to an endless duration. And if so, this flesh must have laid down to rot and to crumble to its mother earth, to rise no more. </li></ul>
  31. 40. <ul><li>8 O the wisdom of God, his mercy and grace! For behold, if the flesh should rise no more our spirits must become subject to that angel who fell from before the presence of the Eternal God, and became the devil, to rise no more. </li></ul><ul><li>9 And our spirits must have become like unto him, and we become devils, angels to a devil, to be shut out from the presence of our God, and to remain with the father of lies, in misery, like unto himself; yea, to that being who beguiled our first parents, who transformeth himself nigh unto an angel of light, and stirreth up the children of men unto secret combinations of murder and all manner of secret works of darkness. </li></ul>
  32. 41. <ul><li>10 O how great the goodness of our God, who prepareth a way for our escape from the grasp of this awful monster; yea, that monster, death and hell, which I call the death of the body, and also the death of the spirit. </li></ul><ul><li>( Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 9 : 6 - 10 ) </li></ul>
  33. 43. <ul><li>With care it surely will become what it is destined to be: a lily, crowned with grace and beauty; a fragrant spearmint plant; a peach; an avocado; or a beautiful blossom with unique delicacy, hue, and fragrance. When last did you observe a tiny rosebud form? Each day it develops new and impressive character, more promise of beauty until it comes a majestic rose. You are one of the noblest of God’s creations. His intent is that your life be gloriously beautiful regardless of your circumstances. As you are grateful and obedient, you an become all that God intends you to be. </li></ul><ul><li>Richard G. Scott, Ensign, May 1996 </li></ul>
  34. 45. Adam and Eve were married Eternally – Moses 3:18-25 <ul><li>They were married eternally (Moses 3:23-24) and given commandments. They were in a state of innocence and knew no sin (2 Ne. 2:23) </li></ul><ul><li>(The Play and the Plan - BKP p.4) </li></ul>
  35. 46. <ul><li>Adam married before the death entered the world. ...the woman was given as a companion to the man because the Lord said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone .’ When Eve was given to Adam, the union was an eternal one. There was no death in the world, for the fall of man came later. (Gen. 2:18; Moses 3:18; 2 Ne. 2:22-25) The ceremony on that occasion was performed by the eternal Father Himself whose work endures forever. It is the will of the Lord that all marriages should be of like character, and in becoming ‘one flesh’ the man and the women are to continue in the married status , according to the Lords plan throughout all eternity ... </li></ul><ul><li>(DS - Joseph Fielding Smith Vol. 2 , p.69 - 71) </li></ul>
  36. 47. Moses 3:24. A Man Should &quot;Cleave unto His Wife&quot; (Luke 22:43) <ul><li>The word cleave means to be closely united. Adam and Eve were commanded to be &quot;one flesh,&quot; meaning to be one mentally, socially, sexually, and spiritually. This oneness was a command with which they could not fully comply until after the Fall. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, explained: </li></ul>
  37. 48. <ul><li>&quot;Human intimacy is reserved for a married couple because it is the ultimate symbol of total union, a totality and a union ordained and defined by God. From the Garden of Eden onward, marriage was intended to mean the complete merger of a man and a woman—their hearts, hopes, lives, love, family, future, everything. Adam said of Eve that she was bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh, and that they were to be 'one flesh' in their life together [see Genesis 2:23–24]. This is a union of such completeness that we use the word seal to convey its eternal promise. The Prophet Joseph Smith once said we perhaps could render such a sacred bond as being 'welded' [see D&C 128:18] one to another. </li></ul>
  38. 49. <ul><li>&quot;But such a total union, such an unyielding commitment between a man and a woman, can only come with the proximity and permanence afforded in a marriage covenant, with solemn promises and the pledge of all they possess—their very hearts and minds, all their days and all their dreams&quot; (in Conference Report, Oct. 1998, 100; or Ensign, Nov. 1998, 76). </li></ul>
  39. 50. <ul><li>Referring to the charge for a man to leave his parents and cleave to his wife, President Spencer W. Kimball said: &quot;Do you note that? She, the woman, occupies the first place. She is preeminent, even above the parents who are so dear to all of us. Even the children must take their proper but significant place&quot; (Ensign, Mar. 1976, 72). </li></ul><ul><li>Pearl of Great Price Student Manual, p. 11 </li></ul>
  40. 51. Moses 4:1-11 <ul><li>1 AND I, the Lord God, spake unto Moses, saying: That Satan, whom thou hast commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten, is the same which was from the beginning, and he came before me, saying—Behold, here am I, send me, I will be thy son, and I will redeem all mankind, that one soul shall not be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor. </li></ul><ul><li>2 But, behold, my Beloved Son, which was my Beloved and Chosen from the beginning, said unto me—Father, thy will be done, and the glory be thine forever. </li></ul>
  41. 52. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith p. 357 <ul><li>The contention in heaven was that Jesus said there would be certain souls that would not be saved; and the devil said he could save them all, and laid his plans before the grand council, who gave their vote in favor of Jesus Christ. So the Devil rose up in rebellion against God, and was cast down, with all who put up their heads for him. </li></ul>
  42. 53. <ul><li>3 Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled against me, and sought to destroy the agency of man, which I, the Lord God, had given him, and also, that I should give unto him mine own power; by the power of mine Only Begotten, I caused that he should be cast down; </li></ul><ul><li>4 And he became Satan, yea, even the devil, the father of all lies, to deceive and to blind men, and to lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken unto my voice. </li></ul><ul><li>5 And now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which I, the Lord God, had made. </li></ul>
  43. 54. <ul><li>6 And Satan put it into the heart of the serpent, (for he had drawn away many after him,) and he sought also to beguile Eve, for he knew not the mind of God, wherefore he sought to destroy the world. </li></ul><ul><li>7 And he said unto the woman: Yea, hath God said—Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? (And he spake by the mouth of the serpent.) </li></ul><ul><li>8 And the woman said unto the serpent: We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; </li></ul><ul><li>9 But of the fruit of the tree which thou beholdest in the midst of the garden, God hath said—Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. </li></ul>
  44. 55. <ul><li>10 And the serpent said unto the woman: Ye shall not surely die; </li></ul><ul><li>11 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. </li></ul><ul><li>( Pearl of Great Price | Moses 4 : 1 - 11 ) </li></ul>
  45. 56. Moses 1:12-23; 4:1-11 The Nature of the Satan <ul><li>JSH 1:14-15 </li></ul><ul><li>Gen. 15:12-13 </li></ul><ul><li>2 Thes.2:3, 4 </li></ul><ul><li>Rev. 20:3 </li></ul><ul><li>Rev. 12:7-12 </li></ul><ul><li>Isa. 14:12-17 </li></ul><ul><li>DC 76:26-29 </li></ul>
  46. 57. <ul><li>36 And it came to pass that Adam, being tempted of the devil—for, behold, the devil was before Adam, for he rebelled against me, saying, Give me thine honor, which is my power; and also a third part of the hosts of heaven turned he away from me because of their agency; </li></ul><ul><li>( Doctrine and Covenants | Section 29 : 36 ) </li></ul>
  47. 58. <ul><li>12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! </li></ul><ul><li>13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: </li></ul><ul><li>14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. </li></ul><ul><li>15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. </li></ul><ul><li>16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; (Isa.14:12-16) </li></ul>
  48. 59. <ul><li>25 And this we saw also, and bear record, that an angel of God who was in authority in the presence of God, who rebelled against the Only Begotten Son whom the Father loved and who was in the bosom of the Father, was thrust down from the presence of God and the Son, </li></ul><ul><li>26 And was called Perdition, for the heavens wept over him—he was Lucifer, a son of the morning. </li></ul><ul><li>27 And we beheld, and lo, he is fallen! is fallen, even a son of the morning! </li></ul><ul><li>( Doctrine and Covenants | Section 76 : 25 - 27 ) </li></ul>
  49. 60. <ul><li>27 And thus he goeth up and down, to and fro in the earth, seeking to destroy the souls of men. </li></ul><ul><li>( Doctrine and Covenants | Section 10 : 27 ) </li></ul>
  50. 61. <ul><li>19 For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they be stirred up to anger, and perish; </li></ul><ul><li>20 For behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good. </li></ul><ul><li>21 And others will he pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell. </li></ul>
  51. 62. <ul><li>22 And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance. </li></ul><ul><li>( Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 28 : 19 - 22 ) </li></ul>
  52. 63. <ul><li>13 And Satan came among them, saying: I am also a son of God; and he commanded them, saying: Believe it not; and they believed it not, and they loved Satan more than God. And men began from that time forth to be carnal, sensual, and devilish. </li></ul><ul><li>14 And the Lord God called upon men by the Holy Ghost everywhere and commanded them that they should repent; </li></ul><ul><li>( Pearl of Great Price | Moses 5 : 13 - 14 ) </li></ul>
  53. 64. <ul><li>1 AND I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. </li></ul><ul><li>2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, </li></ul><ul><li>3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. </li></ul><ul><li>( New Testament | Revelation 20 : 1 - 3 ) </li></ul>
  54. 65. <ul><li>55 And Satan shall be bound, that he shall have no place in the hearts of the children of men. </li></ul><ul><li>( Doctrine and Covenants | Section 45 : 55 ) </li></ul>
  55. 66. ( Doctrine and Covenants | Section 10 : 5 ) <ul><li>5 Pray always, that you may come off conqueror; yea, that you may conquer Satan, and that you may escape the hands of the servants of Satan that do uphold his work. </li></ul>
  56. 68. <ul><li>Eve beguiled by Satan (Moses 4:6, 19), transgressed and was cast out of the garden. Adam chose to obey the first commandment to multiply and replenish the earth. He with Eve was subject to the fall which introduced mortality into the earth (Moses 2:28; 3:17; 4:13; Alma 12:22). Adam and Eve became the first parents of the {Mortal} family of all the earth (2 Ne. 21:20) </li></ul>
  57. 69. The Pattern of Temptation and Redemption (Compiled by Doug Maughan) <ul><li>Moses 3:12-31 </li></ul><ul><li>1. The women saw the tree was good for food...(We first look at or focus on the temptation) </li></ul><ul><li>2. became pleasant to the eyes...(there is an enticement ) </li></ul><ul><li>3....a tree to be desired ....(our appetites or desires are intrigued) </li></ul><ul><li>4....she took of the fruit.... </li></ul>
  58. 70. The Pattern of Temptation and Redemption <ul><li>5....and did eat ...(Transgressed the law against the command of God) </li></ul><ul><li>6....and also gave to her husband with her and he did eat. ..(Misery loves company we share our fall) </li></ul><ul><li>7....the eyes of both of them were opened they knew they were naked ...(They Recognized their transgression and became fallen) </li></ul><ul><li>8. They made aprons...( They tried to cover up ) </li></ul><ul><li>9. They heard the voice of God ...( God’s reaches after us even when we sin or transgress) </li></ul>
  59. 71. The Pattern of Temptation and Redemption <ul><li>10. Adam and Eve went to hide themselves.. .I was afraid and hid myself...Moses 3 :14, 16 </li></ul><ul><li>(We try to hide our sins and even avoid a loving Father who stands ready to help us...) </li></ul><ul><li>11. Where goest thou. ..? </li></ul><ul><li>( Heavenly Father or His representatives inquire after the direction of our lives...Bishops interview) </li></ul><ul><li>12. Who told thee thou wast naked .?.. </li></ul><ul><li>(God helps us see where we are getting our information and the source of our troubles) </li></ul>
  60. 72. The Pattern of Temptation and Redemption <ul><li>13.
