Mosiah 12: We Stubborn Creatures

“When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
Luke 18:8

It happens to all of us. We sin. It’s natural. The problem comes when we become prisoners to our sin, when we no longer see sin as sin. Instead, we see it as something good (After all, C.S. Lewis described sin as spoiled goodness). That is when we need to watch out because that is when (as we naturally do as humans) begin to reject anyone who tells us we’re wrong (we’re stubborn creatures).

This why we have a prophet in the first place! (To guide us in these latter-days) We stray and God calls us back to him. But do we listen? Or instead are we like the people of Lehi-Nephi who rejected the prophet Abinadi and turned him over to the king while declaring their own sinlessness?

“O king, behold,
we are guiltless,
and thou, O king,
hast not sinned.”
