In what will hopefully become a recurring feature on the FAIR blog, we present a list of issues that could come up as you teach or participate in your ward’s Gospel Doctrine class. Each issue is linked to an examination and response by FAIR.
This week: Lesson 27, “They Must Needs Be Chastened and Tried, Even as Abraham” (D&C 101; 103; 105).
Subjects covered: Missouri persecutions, Zion’s Camp, the building up of Zion and her stakes.
- Location of Zion
- Missouri belongs to the Mormons
- Independence temple to be built “in this generation”
- Zion to be redeemed by September 1836
- Cursing of enemies (D&C 103:24–25)
- Zelph (took place during Zion’s Camp)
If you can think of any other issues from this week’s lesson, please comment below so we can add more links.
