“Thou Wast Chosen Before Thou Wast Born” Abraham 3; Moses 4:1-4

My scripture studies article on Abraham 3 and Moses 4 is here.  Quote from the opening paragraph: “Throughout the ages of the world individuals have looked out into the night sky and beheld the magnificent display of God’s creations.  With wondering awe they have asked themselves simple questions that lead to profound truths: “Who am I?”  “What is my purpose here?”  “Why are these things so?”  So too did our great father Abraham wonder and question as he pondered the night sky.  With the Urim and Thummim (lights & perfections) as his aid he received knowledge and truth from the Lord that is recorded in a precious book called the Pearl of Great Price.  We may not individually have a Urim and Thummim, but the truths found in the Pearl of Great Price can enlighten our eyes and perfect our souls if we choose it.  Thus the scriptures can in effect serve as a Urim and Thummim, a personal Liahona, for each of us.  Our lesson today will briefly explore a few of the key doctrines (pre-mortal existence, free agency, creation and foreordination) found in the Book of Abraham and the Book of Moses that answer the fundamental questions of existence.”
