Book of Mormon Challenge: 1 Nephi Chapter 2

Nephi teaches a great principle in this chapter; that when the prophet teaches us, we can pray to know that what he has told us is true. Nephi prayed and received a confirmation from God that his father's visions were true, and that they should leave Jerusalem. His brothers did not pray for this confirmation, and murmured against their father. We can follow this same principle today to gain our own confirmation that what the living prophet today is telling us is what God wants for us. Laman and Lemuel could have avoided a lot of turmoil had they only turned to God with their questions!

One of the only differences between the naughty boys and Nephi can be found in this fundamental principle. Nephi simply states, "Did you inquire of the Lord?" The same question is given to us.
