If you knew you were dying, if you knew that you were approaching the end of your life and that you only had a short time to say goodbye to those whom you love, what would you say, or what would you write? In the book of Mormon chapter 7 we can read what one prophet said to his people. First, he reminded them of who they are. Second, he reminded them of the great principle of repentance and that without it we cannot be saved. Third, he told them to lay down their weapons of war, which means to us today, to lay down our sins; put them aside, never take them up again. Fourth, we must believe in Jesus Christ, that he is the Son of God and that someday we will come before Him to be judged. If we are found guiltless, we will live eternally with Him in the presence of the Father. Mormon's entire dialogue was to prepare us for judgment so that we might dwell with Him in the presence of Father forever. So what would you say to your posterity?
