Sunday School Thought Question (for #8 Living Righteously in a Wicked World)
At first Lot "lived in the cities of the plain, "outside Sodom, but he "pitched his tent toward Sodom" (Genesis 13:12). In contrast, the people of Benjamin in the Book of Mormon gathered to hear King Benjamin. "And they pitched their tents round about the temple, every man having his tent with the door towards the temple."
Do you think are our choices only evil or good? And what are some ways that might be equivalent to pitching our tents towards Sodom or the towards the temple?
I've been working my way through the Ensign this week and have been thinking about the Modern Moral Relativism article. Brother Belnap describes moral relativism as "the idea that questions of right and wrong behavior are relative." He goes on to list the teachings by the Anti-Christ Korihor in Alma 30. Geesh! Some of those cut a little close to home in both how I think as an individual as well as how society thinks collectively. Great article!
