  • A Preparatory Redemption

    I have a chapter in this book on the priesthood of all believers in Alma 13:

    A Preparatory Redemption: Reading Alma 12-13, edited by Matthew Bowman and Rosemary Demos (Provo, Ut.: Maxwell Institute, 2018)

    And I happen to like the other essays in the book as well.

    Could you expound a bit on what it is you're liking?
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      I think the other essays in the book are thoughtful and well-written.

        Preparatory Redemption is a Mormon doctrine, not Biblical. (Alma 12-13). It fails, for example, to understand there is a difference between "before" and "from." (Titus 1:2; Ephesians 1:4). And having "eternal life" and to "perish." (John 3:16; Matthew 10:28).
        . . . the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; . . . -- Romans 1:16 KJV

        . . . that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: . . . -- 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV

        Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: . . . -- 1 John 5:1 KJV

          An essay on robbing a bank can be thoughtful and well-written. I'm just wondering where you're going with this.

            On the face of it, I'm surprised this is an angle you're taking.
            Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

              me too.

              Why are you (msjack) writing essays to support mormon doctrine based on false scripture?
