Show Notes

Shiloh and Ben talk about the conclusion of Alma's words to his sons, as they talk about the principles spoken to Corianton. Ben introduces an idea that Corianton's main "sin" was in "forsaking the ministry," and that he did this by losing focus and traveling after the lusts of his own heart. Shiloh uses the definition of the Godhead in Lecture 5 of the Lectures on Faith to talk about the "sin against the Holy Ghost" and what it takes to become a "son of Perdition" as a matter of epistemology rather than metaphysics. As Corianton was admonished to "cross himself" against sin, Ben and Shiloh talk about the sad loss of symbolic imagery in the Cross of Calvary from Church Culture.
