17 A Where much is given, much is required @ The following is Bruce R. McConkie = s commentary of the parallel passages covered in the above chapter of the student manual. Reading the entire selection below constitutes __ pages. Luke 12: 1-7 Teach The Gospel Boldly And In Plainness p.251 Matt. 10:25b. Missionaries should expect hatred, persecution, revilings, opposition. If the Lord himself, whose every act manifested the power of God, was hated and reviled, what can his servants of lesser power and ability expect? Beelzebub] A name-title for the devil, this was one of the most opprobrious epithets the Jews could hurl at anyone. p.333 26-28. Those who preach the gospel are to do so boldly, without timidity or trepidation, not fearing the face of man, but with the courage of their convictions and in the fervor of their testimonies. "Use boldness, but not overbearance," Alma said. (Alma 38:10-12.) Truths learned in the day of preparation and schooling are to be broadcast from the housetops, even though these teachings reveal the wickedness of the secret acts of men. "For verily the voice of the Lord is unto all men, and there is none to escape; and there is no eye that shall not see, neither ear that shall not hear, neither heart that shall not be penetrated. And the rebellious shall be pierced with much sorrow; for their iniquities shall be spoken upon the housetops, and their secret acts shall be revealed." (D. & C. 1:2-3; 88:108-110.) p.333 - p.334 28. True, some of the Lord's agents shall be slain for their testimonies, but even so, why fear the wicked? They can only kill the body, not the soul. "And whoso layeth down his life in my cause, for my name's sake, shall find it again, even life eternal. Therefore, be not afraid of your enemies, for I have decreed in my heart, saith the Lord, that I will prove you in all things, whether you will abide in my covenant, even unto death, that you may be found worthy." (D. & C. 98:13-14.) p.334 Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell] Deity, not the devil. It is the Lord alone who has power to thrust men down to hell so that in the eternal sense their souls are destroyed. p.334 Destroy] See Matt. 7:13-14. p.334 30. The very hairs of your head are all numbered] Not a mere figurative expression, but a literal, actual fact. So scientific and accurate is the divine accounting that in the resurrection "even a hair of the head shall not be lost." (Alma 40:23.) Luke 12: 8-10 How Forgiveness And Pardoning Grace Operate p.251 In connection with his refutation of the false and evil charge that he cast out devils by the power of Beelzebub, and also because some of his disciples had been afraid to confess him before men, Jesus taught the people the law of eternal forgiveness, including the nature of the sin

against the Holy Ghost. p.272 - p.273 Matt. 12:31-32; Mark 3:28-29; I. V. Luke 12:10-12. What is the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost? "Blasphemy consists in either or both of the following: 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
