I love the scriptures!!! Review: Opposition in all things. It is a part of nature that there be opposites. Lehi teaches here that if there are not opposites there will basically be nothing. And that goes for all things including things like mercy and justice. Even for God to exist or be needful there must be opposition and the ability to choose one or the other. I mentioned how this makes me think of when Christ told Judas that wickedness had to come to pass but woe be unto the one by whom it comes. Woe was used by the Savior I believe to tell Judas that he had empathy and concern for him as a human being and was sorry that he would have to face that which Christ knew he would face. In following the Savior's example it is not okay for us to hold ourselves up as something better or something mightier than others, not even the wicked. But we need to have empathy and concern for these, too, are loved by God whether they receive of his love or not. Lehi speaks of the transgretion of Adam and Eve. He speaks of the angel of God who fell and became the father of all lies. He countered God's instruction that they would die if they ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and said they would not die but have knowledge. You might say he gave them half truth and just enough outright lie that it seemed like it would be the right thing to do. Do you ever feel like that. Like you justify a wrong till it seems to be right. I know I have and it is something that we have to look out for all the time. It is in and through God that we have all power and all life. Of this I testify, in Jesus Name, Amen.
