Wow, the last six weeks really flew by and I'm set to head home to sunny Southern California in a few hours. This has been a grueling semester and I'm ready to head home and just unwind a little (still gotta work to save some green for next year). That being said, there's another conclusion I'd like to speak on: the end of the New Testament and the Bible. For this final week, I'd like to discuss one particular gem that I discovered.
In the second letter written by Peter, third chapter, verses three through five. He describes that there will be "scoffers" who try to explain away the signs of the Second Coming (we call them "skeptics" today ). The problem is there are a lot of these skeptics in today's society because they will encourage others to do whatever they feel is right and make decisions based on personal feelings. However Moroni (The Book of Mormon, final author) points out that whatever persuades us to do good and serve God is of God, while that which persuades us to do evil (or to do what we want, the "live in the moment" attitude) is from the Other Guy.
May we all continue to live by the gospel of Christ and live by His example. As one of my favorite hymns is titled, God be with you till we meet again (or blog, in this case).
