Studying the Scriptures
Do activity A or B as you study 3 Nephi 6.
Make a Road Map
In your notebook, draw a road map that starts in the “State of Righteousness” and ends in the “State of Awful Wickedness.” Carefully study 3 Nephi 6:9–18, and insert points on the map that represent the “places” the people went through on their way down to a state of awful wickedness. Give each point a name that describes what the Nephites did that demonstrated their movement away from righteousness and note the verse where you found it.
Add another road to your map that leads to eternal life. As with the other road, label points that represent what a few people did in 3 Nephi 6 to remain righteous even when almost everyone else was traveling toward wickedness.
