Studying the Scriptures
Do activity A as you study Alma 49.
Be a War Correspondent
Suppose you are a news reporter assigned to follow the Lamanite army into battle.
For each of the following three sets of verses, prepare a headline and a brief news report describing for your readers what happened: Alma 49:1–12, 13–25, and 26–30.
The Apostle Paul taught that "we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12). Explain how you can take the lesson you learned from the Nephites' preparations for war and apply them in your spiritual battles or conflicts against sin and wickedness.
