MTC Scripture Study: Importance of Eliminating Contention from Our Hearts

25 February 2009

2 Nephi 26:32 commandment: no malice, lies, steal, take the Lord's name in vain, contend. Whoso does perisheth

Mosiah 2:32 evil spirit is who you obey when you have contention.

Mosiah 8:21 No contention, look forward with one eye, one faith, one baptism, hearts in unity and love.

Similar to Ephesians 4 we have truth. One truth, should each other for it creates disharmony in the Lord's work.

Mosiah 29:26 not common people desire anything contrary to what is right.

Helaman 16:22 Satan arouse contention against good and spreads rumors. If our hearts are lifted up with contention, we can't feel the Holy Ghost, without the Holy Ghost, we can't bless others lives. We can't show them the unique message of the gospel.

3 Nephi 11:29 He with the spirit of contentionn not of God. The Devil is Father of contention.

4 Nephi 1:15 Love of God needs to dwell in our hearts.

D&C 10:63

D&C 136:23
