Staying on the Lord’s side of the Line “There is a line of demarcation well defined between the Lord's territory and the devil's territory. If you will remain on the Lord's side of the line, the adversary cannot come there to tempt you. You are perfectly safe as long as you stay on the Lord's side of the line. But if you cross onto the devil's side of the line, you are in his territory, and you are in his power, and he will work on you to get you just as far from that line as he possibly can, knowing that he can only succeed in destroying you by keeping you away from the place where there is safety.” George A. Smith, Apostle and Counselor in First Presidency, April 1839 – September 1875.

Why did Alma “ harrow up ” Corianton’s soul? n Alma 39: 7 And now, my son, I would to God that ye had not been guilty of so great a crime. I would not dwell upon your crimes, to harrow up your soul, if it were not for your good . n 2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death . Chapters 40-42 contain questions Alma answers to help Corianton experience godly sorrow, rather than the sorrow of the world.
