A Thought

The time is long overdue for a massive flooding of the earth with the Book of Mormon for the many reasons which the Lord has given. In this age of electronic media and mass distribution of the printed word, God will hold us accountable if we do not now move the Book of Mormon in a monumental way.

- Ezra Taft Benson

Brother Beardall’s Gospel Doctrine Outlines

Lesson 43 - How Could Ye Have Departed from the Ways of the Lord? - Mormon 1–6; Moroni 9
The decline of Nephite society and an introduction to the prophet/warrior Mormon. Mormon becomes leader of the Nephite armies, but the Nephites suffer because of wickedness. The people fail to repent and acknowledge God, which continues their decline toward the ultimate destruction of the Nephite nation.

Lesson 42 - This Is My Gospel - 3 Nephi 27–30; 4 Nephi
The Lord instructs his disciples about the name of his church and that all who join should take upon them his name. Three of the Nephite disciples desire to continue their ministry in the flesh as did the apostle John. We conclude with a discussion on 4th Nephi and why the Nephites were so successful and then how their society entered rapid decline.

Lesson 41 - He Did Expound All Things unto Them - 3 Nephi 22–26
The Savior counsels the Nephites to search the teachings of Isaiah and all the prophets. Prophecy about the latter-day gathering of Israel and the building of Zion. Jesus reminds Nephi of the importance of recording the teachings of the prophets. He cites the teachings of Malachi.

Lesson 40 - Then Will I Gather Them In - 3 Nephi 16; 3 Nephi 20–21
The Savior teaches the Nephites about the other sheep, the lost ten tribes. He also instructs them regarding the role of the Gentiles in the last days and the building of the New Jerusalem.

Lesson 39 - Behold, My Joy Is Full - 3 Nephi 17–19
After the Lord had been teaching the Nephites, he said that they should go into their homes and ponder and ponder his words. We discuss the importance of pondering the scriptures. The Lord institutes the sacrament among the Nephites and teaches them to watch and pray always in order to avoid the snares of Satan. On the second day, the people gather again. The Lord offers a powerful prayer in behalf of the people.
