Day 167Lesson 2: The Plan of Salvation, p. 53, today you will study the section titled “Kingdoms of Glory”.  And 4th Article of Faith.

Day 168—Review entire Lesson 2 “The Plan of Salvation.”  Use the following ideas to help children remember the entire lesson.  Feel free to create additional questions.  Some questions are a bit deeper than others and require a degree of critical thinking that a younger child might not possess (but you might be surprised).  Use these questions to encourage discussion, not a test.
  • Who did we live with before we were born on earth?  (answer: Heavenly Father)    

  • What did we learn and accept before we came to this earth? (answer: The Plan of Salvation).

  •  The Plan of Salvation can also be called “The Plan of Happiness.”  How does this plan help us to be happy?  (any acceptable answer explaining that being with Heavenly Father and our families after this life will help us to be happy).

  • Who created the earth (answer: Jesus Christ.  If they answer “Heavenly Father,” remind them that Heavenly Father directed Jesus on how to create the earth, but that it was actually Jesus who performed the creation.)

  • Why don’t we remember the time when we lived with Heavenly Father? (answer: we must walk by faith and not by sight.  Explain what that means if they need further explanation).

  • Who were the first people on the earth? (answer: Adam and Eve). 

  •  Key words about Adam and Eve: * Agency—the ability to choose for oneself.

  •  Adam and Eve were given a commandment to NOT do something.  What was it, and what happened? (answer: anything that explains the commandment not to partake of the fruit, Satan tempting Adam & Eve, and Adam and Eve partaking of the fruit).

  • This event is called “The Fall.” Why is it called The Fall, and why is it so important that this happened?  (answer:  It is called The Fall because Adam and Eve fell away from God’s presence and they were cast out from the garden.  The Fall is important because it made Adam and Eve mortal, explain what mortal means, and this was the only way that that they could learn and progress.  It allowed them to make choices and to sin, and it also enabled them to have children, bringing more of Heavenly Father’s spirit children to the earth to also learn and progress.)

  • What is our purpose on earth? (answer: anything to do with learning and growing to become more like Heavenly Father and return to His presence).

  •  Explain the two types of death. (answer: Physical death—the death of our physical bodies.  Spiritual death—sinning, creating distance between us and Heavenly Father.)? 

  • How does it make you feel that Heavenly Father has given you the chance to become more like Him?  (any answer is acceptable)

  •  How did Jesus Christ overcome the effects of the Fall/the two types of death? (answer: The Atonement.  Though we will all die, Jesus overcame physical death when he was resurrected on the third day after he was crucified.  Jesus also suffered for our sins, paying the price for us to overcome spiritual death.)

  • What do we have to do to be resurrected and live with God again?  (Answer: To be resurrected, we do not have to do anything.  ALL of Heavenly Father’s children, regardless of their life choices will have their spirit and body reunited through the resurrection.  However, in order to live with God again, we must exercise faith in Christ, repent of our sins regularly, be baptized into Christ’s church, receive the gift of the holy Ghost and endure to the end.)

  • Why is Jesus so special and different from the rest of Heavenly Father’s children?  (answer: anything explaining that He is perfect, sinless, completely obedient). 

  • Where will we go after we die, but before we are resurrected?  (Answer: the Spirit World).

  • What will happen after we are resurrected?  (answer: we will be brought into God’s presence to be judged.  He will reward us according to our works and desires). 

  • What is he difference between Immortality and Eternal Life? (answer: Immortality is to live forever; everyone will become immortal after the resurrection.  Eternal Life is only for those who obey the gospel; these people will get to live in the presence of God forever in eternal families.  It can also be referred to as Exaltation. 
  • What are the Kingdoms of Glory and who will get to live there? (answer: Celestial, Terrestrial, and Telestial.  See pages 53-54 for more complete description and scriptures to explain who will dwell in each Kingdom of Glory).
·         Key Words can be found on pages 58-59 of “Preach my Gospel.”  Review them as needed.
