To Abraham:

“…the intelligences that were organized before the world was; and among all these there were many of the noble and great ones;”

Abraham was chosen before he was born

“…Wherefore, if ye shall be obedient to the commandments, and endure to the end, ye shall be saved at the last day…”

A General Apostasy

There is evidence that the Church in Paul’s day was falling away from the truth.

What scripture mastery is this?

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

1 Nephi 22:31

When would Apostasy take place?

See Acts 20:28-31

“…Three years I ceased not to warn everyone night and day with tears.”

Church continues

Although some may apostatize in our day, the church will not be withdrawn from the earth again.

“…and it shall stand for ever.”

See Daniel 2:44-45

“Wherefore, may the kingdom of God go forth…”

D&C 65:2-6 Read all verses

slide13

“There are still those, not a few, who criticize and rebel, who apostatize and lift their voices against this work…I suppose we always will have them as long as we are trying to do the work of the Lord. The honest in heart will detect that which is true and that which is false…We are a body of Christian solders “marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before.”—Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley

“The Lord will never permit me or any other man who stands as President of this Church to lead you astray.” –President Wilford Woodruff

The Scriptures

“…the word of God, as found in the scriptures, in the words of living prophets, and in personal revelation, has the power to fortify the Saints and arm them with the spirit so they can resist evil, hold fast to the good, and find joy in this life.”—Pres. Ezra Taft Benson
