Engaging Gospel Doctrine

“Take upon You My Whole Armor”


We are supposed to put on the Armor of God… but what is the battle? This episode proposes that the battle is one for our agency (an idea that should be familiar!)–our ability to act rather than be acted upon. This episode will discuss:

  • The components of the Armor of God
  • The core issue of agency
  • Factors that limit our agency
  • How we can overcome or take into account our limitations and weakness
