Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000As we’ve been nearing the end of these lessons I’ve noticed a recurring theme going on.  The Church has turned the lessons more inward than outward. What I mean by that is for the past several weeks these lessons are more about Mormonism, their temples and the growth of the Church than the Bible and what God has to say.

This verse is just an example to show that there was never but one temple at a time built for the Lord.  There have been three temples built in all, but there’s only been one at a time all throughout history.  The Babylonians had many temples though and you’ll see in today’s quote that the Mormons have it wrong again.

Alma 16:13; “And Alma and Amulek went forth preaching repentance to the people in their temples, and in their sanctuaries, and also in their synagogues, which were built after the manner of the Jews.”
