“Thou Wast Chosen Before Thou Wast Born”


The Plan of Salvation has been described as a “three act play”, and we could add that all of them are full of drama. We read about “noble and great” and “chosen” ones in the pre-existence, and wonder where we fit in. This update covers the following topics, and concludes that we choose every day to make our lives chosen, noble, and great.

  1. What is the Book of Abraham and why does it matter?
  2. The Pre-existence
  3. Foreordination vs. Predestination
  4. “Noble and great ones”
  5. Agency across the Plan of Salvation
  6. War in heaven
  7. Living chosen
