Episode 31: Moroni 10
/

Shiloh and Ben discuss Moroni 10 and finalize this year’s narrative in talking about the Book of Mormon. It is of interest that it seems that Moroni wants us to come with a heart of mercy to praying over the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. Why would this be important to Moroni? At least in part is appears that Moroni is helping us to have a certain experience with the divine and that he is using us coming to God to pray over the truthfulness of the record as the catalyst to that experience. There are many things to say about the gifts of the spirit and of God, and Moroni repeats the need for faith, hope, and charity. We get a little window to see into Moroni’s life and what he finds valuable through his repeated emphasis on seeking for and witnessing miracles. Moroni’s final message and plea is really the overall theme and purpose of the Book of Mormon: “Come unto Christ, and be perfected in Him.”
