The Plan of Salvation

As I was reading today in 2 Nephi chapter 2, I wanted to gain a better understanding of the Plan of Salvation, how I can apply it better in my life. I searched through lds.org I found a talk that had been given by Duane B Gerrard in the October 1997 General Conference called The Plan of Salvation: A Flight Plan for Life.

This is a great talk. He outlines the plan of salvation using the 3 flight plans uses by pilots. He outlines what we should be doing in a normal procedure, abnormal procedure and emergencies. I love that he uses his experience as a pilot to help us better understand the Plan of Salvation.

I also wanted to share my thoughts of the what I got out of from reading this chapter.

  • Opposition helps us to grow and helps us to overcome trials
  • We need agency, but within agency we must have:
    1. freedom to choose
    2. opposition
    3. knowledge
    4. enticings
    5. consequences
    6. repentance
  • We were given a commandment to repent.
Here's a quote from the talk that I loved.
"What a great and wonderful plan is the Plan of Salvation, which ... teaches true principles to allow completion of our journey through life."
