  1. Mosiah 27-29

  2. Tell me what you think about the following statements…

  3. “The young people of the Church … hold the future in their hands. The Church has always been one generation away from extinction. If a whole generation were lost, which will not happen, we would lose the Church. But even a single individual lost to the gospel of Jesus Christ closes doors for generations of descendants, unless the Lord reaches out to bring some of them back.” Henry B. Eyring

  4. “I have said many times that I believe we have the finest generation of young people that this Church has ever known. … They try to do the right thing. They are bright and able, clean and fresh, attractive and smart. … They know what the gospel is about, and they are trying to live it, looking to the Lord for His guidance and help.” Gordon B. Hinckley

  5. “Many of them are remarkable in their spiritual maturity and in their faith. But even the best of them are sorely tested. And the testing will become more severe.” Henry B. Eyring

  11. We must recognize what is wrong. Read Alma 36:12–13. What phrases show that Alma recognized the seriousness of his sin? • “How can we really feel forgiven until we first feel responsible? How can we learn from our own experiences unless these lessons are owned up to?” (Elder Neal A. Maxwell) • We must feel godly sorrow. Alma 36:14–17. Why do you think remorse, or godly sorrow, is necessary for repentance? • We must confess our sins. To whom did Alma confess his sins?(Mosiah 27:35) • We must forsake our sins. Alma 36:23–25. What evidence shows that Alma forsook his sins? • We must make restitution where possible. What did Alma do to make restitution? (Mosiah28:3) • Great blessings follow repentance. Alma 36:19–21. How did Alma describe the joy that comes from repentance?

  12. Mosiah 27-29 • Have you ever seen this kind of change in people today? • What led to this change? (Mosiah 27:11–17)

  13. Mosiah 27-29 "Many of our Saints don't understand what repentance really is. Repentance is more than just undoing the wrongs you've done. It's a whole change. You want to think like the Lord. You want to talk like the Lord. You want to act like the Lord. You want to believe, you want to pray, you want to love the way the Lord does. And then you're converted." -Russell M. Nelson, Ensign, June 2005

  14. Repentance: Definition SHUBE (Hebrew): To turn from MATANEOEO (Greek): Change of mind POENITORE (Latin): To punish, strip, cut, mutilate, disfigure, starve or torture

  15. Mosiah 27-29 Questions about Repentance? • What do you need to see the bishop for? • What if you’re simply not ready to give up the sin? • Do you have to sin to repent? • How do you know if you’ve truly repented?

  16. Mosiah 27-29 Bruce R. McConkie: "In a real though figurative sense, the book of life is the record of the acts of men as such record is written in their own bodies. It is the record engraven on the very bones, sinews, and flesh of the mortal body. That is, every thought, word and deed has an effect on the human body; all these leave their marks, marks which can be read by Him who is Eternal as easily as the words in a book can be read. (Mormon Doctrine, p. 97.)

  17. Mosiah 27-29 “We are spinning our own fates good or evil, and never to be undone. Every smallest stroke of virtue or of vice leaves its ever so little scar. Down among his nerve-cells and fibers the molecules are counting it, registering and storing it up to be used against him when the next temptation comes.” (Psychology, Henry Holt I Co., N. Y. 1892, p. 150.)
