229.2: Interpreting Revelation (D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 6)

“I Will Tell You in Your Mind and in Your Heart, by the Holy Ghost”

In this lesson we will discuss a topic of vital importance. How do we interpret revelation? How do we distinguish inspiration from God and our own thoughts, feelings, and desires? Once we can identify that we are receiving a prompting from a source greater than ourselves, how do we interpret it? How should we act on it? What is the relationship of personal revelation and teachings revealed through scripture and Church leaders?
