004: Book of Mormon Lesson 27: Alma 30-31

“All Things Denote There Is a God”

I jokingly call this lesson “Apostates week”. The key exchanges this lesson are Alma vs. Korihor and then Alma and his companions vs. the Zoramites. We are going to push a bit in approach with this lesson, use these scriptures to challenge us a touch. Kind of like how so many enjoy likening ourselves to Nephi, but what can we learn by likening ourselves to Laman and Lemuel?

Key points in this lesson include:

  • What compelling evidence is there for the existence of God? Is there anything that might be problematic about God debates?
  • Sure it is easy to write off Korihor and Mormon wants us to, but what are the elements of his worldview?
  • What are the Zoramites’ shortcomings? Is there anything we can learn from them, perhaps even see elements familiar in our own Church culture?
  • What *is* the most productive way to interact with those who disbelieve?
