plan of salvation
There are few things more important 
to learn well in this life than the laws that govern the plan of salvation. Understanding this great plan for our happiness gives us the big picture of why we are here on earth and what we are supposed to accomplish while here. It gives us meaning and direction, purpose and reason.

When Alma was corresponding with his son Corianton about the doctrines Corianton didn’t understand, he included this brief one chapter summary of the entire plan of salvation. Alma refers to doctrines without naming them, and talks about how they are related to each other without going into detail. I can only guess he believes Corianton knows what he is talking about. So we have to fill in the blanks. That is what this article attempts to do – fill in the blanks.

When my wife and I were reading Alma 42 during our scripture study time, I decided I needed to see if I could sit down with the text and explain to myself what Alma was talking about. If you haven’t guessed by now, I do that through writing. Because WordPress doesn’t have the feature I need to handle dual column commentary, I had to use my word processor (WordPerfect – MS Word doesn’t have the feature either) then convert the file into PDF format. But good news! The PDF article is at the bottom of this page!
