Show Notes

Ben and Shiloh continue with the discussion of the Sermon at the Temple. When Jesus Christ visited the people in the Americas, he was doing more than bringing them a great new message. He taught, identified, and led them into a completely new way of experience and being. All too often, we unwittingly interpret scripture through the biased lens of our own language, culture, past experiences, and a host of other filters that often distort the intended message as it was given. Through this episode, Ben and Shiloh use Jesus Christ's message in the Sermon at the Temple as the lens to view and understand Isaiah, Malachi, and the rest of Jesus Christ's message throughout 3rd Nephi. Using the Sermon at the Temple as the lens produces some fascinating new insights into the nature of God, the end of days prophecies, the building of Zion, and of how God views the state of the wicked.

Episode 71: D&C 111-114 (Updated)

**Update** This is the updated episode. We apologize that the previous Episode 71 somehow accidentally cut off approx. 10 minutes early. Ben is joined again by Christopher Hurtado in a discussion about D&C Sections 111-114. The Saints are anxious about their future and ability to establish the Church according to the revelations. The Lord tells them that they need not be concerned with outcomes. He will take care of their debts and the destiny of Zion. They are invited to simply labor with Him. They are to take of their cross and feed His sheep. As we take upon ourselves the name of Christ, the scriptures about Christ become scriptures about us. The priesthood is the power of God to redeem Zion through gentleness, meekness, and love, without compulsion. How does God offer us power versus how the world offers power? ...

Episode 35: D&C 3-5

Shiloh and Ben open up a discussion about Martin Harris and the lost 116 pages of the Book of Mormon. There is so much to grasp of the grace and mercy of God throughout these three sections of scripture, and we often sidestep these conversations because they threaten the worldview of our ego-based false selves. Scripture is a beautiful thing, for it is the record of when mankind and God touch. Within the scriptural record we see God pouring through cracks of men’s foibles to reveal Himself again and again between the erroneous narratives of the false self. On each page of scripture we find both a documented account of the true and false selves in how they relate to and see God. Sections 3-5 reveal much of this tug-of-war between the true and false selves in how they see God. Once we begin to recognize the tension expressed in scripture between what God is revealing of what we really are (as created in God’s image) and what the world is propagating us to believe of what really are (as created “after the image of [our] own god” (D&C 1:16)), the depths of Joseph’s and Martin’s darkness at the loss of the 116 pages and of God’s reassuring grace and mercy begin to take on completely new meanings.
