  1. The Rising Generation

  2. A True Story A friend recently sat by an old couple at a hospice. After sitting quietly for a few minutes, the wife suddenly turned to her husband and called out in a loud voice: “Hey, I almost forgot to ask. How did your autopsy turn out?” The old man just stared straight ahead. “Biopsy,” he said quietly. “The biopsy went fine.”

  3. Age Old Question Why do rebellious kids happen in “good” families? 1- what is the stock answer. 2- what do those families really think?

  4. Mosiah 26 Now it came to pass that there were many of the rising generation that could not understand the words of king Benjamin, being little children at the time he spake unto his people: and they did not believe the tradition of their fathers. They did not believe what had been said concerning the resurrection of the dead, neither did they believe concerning the coming of Christ. And now because of their unbelief they could not understand the word of God: and their hearts were hardened. And they would not be baptized; neither would they join the church. And they were a separate people as to their faith, and remained so ever after, even in their carnal and sinful state; for they would not call upon the Lord their God. And now in the reign of Mosiah they were not half so numerous as the people of God; but because of the dissensions among the brethren they became more numerous. Did not believe Could not understand Hearts were hardened Elder Bednar … parents are not simply to teach their children. Rather, they are to teach them to understand. And understanding is a gift from God. Would not call upon the Lord Dissensions among the brethren

  5. Unique Moment Mosiah 26: 7-13

  6. Distinct Difference Mosiah 26: 18: Yea blessed is this people who are willing to bear my name; for in my name shall they be called… 20: …thou shalt serve me and go forth in my name and shalt gather together my sheep 24: For behold, in name are they called: and if they know me they shall come forth, and shall have a place eternally at my right hand. 30: yea, and as often as my people repent will I forgive them their trespasses against me. Mosiah 26: 25:…when the 2nd trump (second resurrection) shall sound then shall they that never knew me come forth and shall stand before me. 26: and then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, that I am their Redeemer; but they would not be redeemed. 27: And then I will confess unto them that I never knew them; and they shall depart… King Benjamin For how knoweth a man the master whom he has not served, and who is a stranger unto him" (Mosiah 5:13) The Truth: The Lord never Rejects Anyone. We Reject Him! Know Him Know Him Not

  7. Two Final Pieces 2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless, the foundation of God standeth sure, Having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. 1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass Darkly; But then face to face Now I know in part But then shall I know even also as I am known

  8. Alma the Younger-The future Prophet Mosiah 27:8

  9. St. Hugh Nibley Brigham Young said, ‘Pray that you never see an angel.’ He was talking historically. Almost everybody who saw an angel left the Church. They came back, but they had these terrible problems. It gave them inflated egos, etc. They thought they were somebody special. They were, but they couldn't take it. It would be very dangerous if we were exposed to the other world to any degree. Only people that are very humble can do that. Not us, we can't do that. We are not that humble.” (The Teachings of the Book of Mormon, Lecture 41, p.193)
