Charity–Becoming More Like Him
For any person on this journey to learn, understand, believe and live the Doctrine of Christ, inevitably they cannot avoid the subject of charity. There is even a section in The Doctrine of Christ Study Guide that discusses how to become ‘just and true’ son or daughter of Jesus Christ. Developing charity is such a large part of becoming like the Savior. We will often quote a few scriptures about charity. However, most of the time we don’t give the subject enough deep consideration and even pondering on what it means to develop charity in our daily lives.
For this reason, the Lectures on Charity Study Guide was developed. It is a complement to The Doctrine of Christ Study Guide. It should help any student on their journey to truly come to know and inherit more of the loving nature of Jesus Christ.
That Ye May Know With a Perfect Knowledge
In speaking of the Light of Christ, Stephen R. Covey once characterized our relationship to by saying, “We are like fish who discover water last.” I think you could extend that characterization of our relationship to all three voices of personal revelation. We are so enveloped in the constant exposure to these three differing voices that we find it very difficult to discern which is which. And yet, Moroni teaches such a profound contrast by saying:
For behold, my brethren, it is given unto you to judge, that ye may know good from evil; and the way to judge is as plain, that ye may know with a perfect knowledge, as the daylight is from the dark night –Moroni 7:15
Without the ability to discern one voice from another, it is very difficult for a person to progress in their journey to a complete dependence upon the Savior. We need now, more than ever, to know our own voice from voices of light and from voices of darkness.
The Three Voices of Personal Revelation Study Guide has a companion visual aid and its purpose is to be a practical guide to discerning the three voices of personal revelation. It is also a complement and companion guide to The Doctrine of Christ Study Guide. It should help any person develop more recognition of the differing voices and gain more confidence in their personal discernment.
Both the Lectures on Charity Study Guide and The Three Voices of Personal Revelation Study Guide are in progress. The Lectures on Charity Study Guide should be available in a few days while The Three Voices of Personal Revelation Study Guide could be available as early as next week.
All the study guides from Project Doctrine of Christ are available in one location on the website.
