Born Again IS the Message of Mosiah

"When you choose to follow Christ, you choose to be changed"


Mosiah begins with an Example:

Christ CAN Change People – Even a Righteous Multitude

The message to the people of King Benjamin (the words of an angel):

"Put off the natural man"

The effect of the message on the people:

They are born again

     

The Doctrine of the Atonement

Abinadi teaches the necessity of the atonement of Christ:

By the atonement, Christ became the Father of all who are born again – they are His seed

Alma (the elder) teaches the necessity of baptism: (the symbol of rebirth)

"Come into the fold of God, and . . . be called His people" – join His family?

Mosiah ends with another Example:

Christ CAN Change People – Even one Rebellious Son

The message to Alma the Younger (the words of an angel):

"Repent or be destroyed"

The effect of the message on Alma:

He is born again
