194: Kings, Judges, and War (BoM Gospel Doctrine Lesson 21)

“Alma … Did Judge Righteous Judgments”

 

In these chapters, we need to challenge the narrator. Mormon assures us that Alma is right and Nehor is wrong, that the Nephites are just and the Amlicites are wicked. But a closer reading challenges, or at least nuances these claims, giving us an opportunity o explore bias and the critical question of how to constructively reach those who disagree with us.
