January 16, 2018

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

The Creation

Appreciating the miracle of creation and our responsibility relating to it proves more important than understanding its mechanics, but the latter remains valuable. Sheldon, Danny and Amanda discuss the accounts in Moses and Abraham and the relationship of scripture and science relating to the creation of human beings and the world.
