Covenants and Ordinances – Elder David A. Bednar (1:37)


Journal Prompt: 

What is the difference between the “spirit of contention” (3 Nephi 11:29) and a discussion to resolve a disagreement? How can people disagree without becoming contentious?

Very few people in the history of the world have ever heard the actual voice of God the Father speak to them. Make a chart to compare the words of Heavenly Father when He spoke at the baptism of Jesus Christ (see Matthew 3:17; Mark 1:11; Luke 3:22); on the Mount of Transfiguration (see Matthew 17:5; Mark 9:7; Luke 9:35); to the Nephites (3 Nephi 11:7); and to the Prophet Joseph Smith (Joseph Smith—History 1:17). Describe the significance of each of these statements.
