There is 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. This Lectures on Charity Study Guide should help any student on their journey to truly come to know and inherit more of the loving nature of Jesus Christ.
The lectures in this new study guide are written with one purpose, to bring souls to Christ. In order to do this, one must obtain charity, for we cannot come to Christ if we are not willing to become like Christ. And it is impossible to become like Christ without obtaining His pure love.
This Study Guide draws heavily from the scriptures in presenting what charity is, the objects and virtues upon which charity rests, how charity is obtained, and the effects we see flow from one who has obtained charity. These lectures are written to all audiences and the author hopes that the use of latter-day scripture does not put off readers who are traditional Christians or those from other religions. The author sees no conflict in the doctrine and gospel of Christ as presented in The Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, or the Pearl of Great Price and uses these scriptures liberally; as in many cases they show, both by word and example, how one obtains charity and comes to Christ.
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. –1 John 3:1-2
