Scripture Mastery—Exodus 33:11
Some nonmember friends do not believe the Joseph Smith story of the First Vision because they believe the Bible says man cannot see God. They may read to you Exodus 33:20. Explain how you would answer them using Exodus 33:11; JST, Exodus 33:20; and two other Bible scriptures showing that man can see God. You may need to use the study helps in your scriptures.
