Episode 85: Moses 7

Ben is joined by guest Dan Meehan in a discussion of Moses 7, the second half of the canonized “Book of Enoch”. In his vision of the divine, Enoch sees a God who expresses emotion and feels sorrow.

In our wickedness, we view the consequences of our actions as the punishment of a wrathful, vengeful, and violent God. But are these true descriptions of the eternal nature of God? Both Mormon and Moroni speak of this wrathful God, as was surely the common belief in God in their day by those who lament that they cannot find happiness in sin (i.e., living their 'false self'). Yet, this is one of the most powerful messages of repentance from the dust: to avoid the fates of civilizations long since extinct, we need to learn that repentance (as the LDS Bible Dictionary defines) is to see God in a fresh and new way -- a way that he revealed to us all through the Sermon on the Mount and the Sermon at the Temple. ...
