What is the relationship between repentance, faith, and trust in God?
Many Lamanites repent and become more righteous than the Nephites. Gadianton and Kishkumen organize secret groups of robbers and murderers. Nephites hear Nephi praying on their behalf and ask him about it. He preaches repentance to them.
“Behold now, I do not say that these things shall be, of myself, because it is not of myself that I know these things; but behold, I know that these things are true because the Lord God has made them known unto me, therefore I testify that they shall be.”
Rachael D: In Helaman 7:29 Nephi says he knows these things are true because the Lord God has made them known unto him. He was talking about the destruction of the wicked but I think it is important to apply this to our testimonies. Truth is revealed to us and this can keep us strong in the gospel when we are surrounded by wickedness.
