Good Cometh of None Save of Me

Plugging along today in the Book of Mormon. I am really enjoying reading in Ether. I have been realizing through this experience of reading the Book of Mormon that I am pretty familiar with the stories of the Book of Mormon, but often less familiar with the words of the Book of Mormon.

For example, I knew all about the scripture in Moroni 7 about anything persuading a man to believe in Christ is from God. But I didn't know about this corollary:

I have said before that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not hold a monopoly on truth. Nor do we, as Mormons, or even as Christians, have a monopoly on following Christ. Every person who does good is following Christ in some way (yes, even Muslims and Jews who do not profess to believe in Christ).

"whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do good is of me; for good cometh of none save it be of me." Ether 4:12

Have you been able to find Christ in unexpected places, by finding things that persuade men to do good?

  1. Hi Becca
    I have so enjoyed reading your posts. Here is a verse I found during Christmas, when I was feeling particularly pouty, wondering why bother with gifts, missing my mother, feeling a tad sorry for myself;
    Ephesians 4:7
    But unto everyone of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ,
    And then "aha",that gift is eternal life.
    My spirit was lifed once again.

    1. Yes... only, it wasn't unexpected to me. I have a friend who professes to be Atheist. But believe me, she is a true follower of Christ. I see that the Lord loves and blesses her for every commandment she obeys, even if she isn't doing it to "obey." :) It is very cool! :D
