177: Mercy as Taught in the Book of Mormon

If we are not careful, it is very easy to become lazy in our scripture studies–reading but not pausing long enough to really see and understand what it is saying. In the course of our years as Latter-day Saints, we generally have developed ready answers to what this or that passage is about, and we grove those interpretations into our minds. But are the long-standing ways we interpret scriptures always revelatory of what they mean?

This is especially true when it comes to the topics of Grace and Mercy. Many of us don’t quite believe in either, thinking that we must qualify in some way before we can receive either. This isn’t what the Book of Mormon teaches about them, and in this episode, Latter-day Faith host Dan Wotherspoon and the wonderful and insightful Danny Kofoed discuss its most profound ways of understanding God’s true graceful and merciful nature.

Listen in!
