Episode 6: Alma 23 - 29

Shiloh and Ben discuss the story of the Anti-Lehi-Nephis, the Beatitudes, the Doctrine of Perhaps, nonviolence, and the history of how the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has viewed and used the story of the Anti-Nephi-Lehis over the last hundred years. There is much more to the story and conversion of the Anti-Nephi-Lehis, and we are very excited to have this discussion. We hope you enjoy!
