“…Men are instructed sufficiently that they know good from evil. And the law is given unto men. And by the law no flesh is justified; or, by the law men are cut off. Yea, by the temporal law they were cut off; and also, by the spiritual law they perish from that which is good, and become miserable forever. Wherefore, redemption cometh in and through the Holy Messiah; for he is full of grace and truth.” (2 Nephi 2:5-6)
-Is there a God-given conscience that all have to some degree?
-How is the light of Christ tied to conscience?
-What is the law that cuts all men off from God (because they fail to follow it perfectly)?
-What is the distinction Lehi is making between the temporal law and the spiritual law?
-Is there any way to be reconciled to the law, and return to God, other than through the redemption that Jesus Christ offers?
