Think of a word that means the opposite of the word on your paper. Look for a piece of paper under your chair, but don’t tell anyone what is on it!
Take Take turns saying the opposite word you thought of. The The rest of the class will try to guess the positive word that is on your paper.
Just as every word in this activity has an opposite, Satan has a counterfeit or opposite teaching for every teaching of Jesus Christ.
Following Heavenly Father brings us happiness; following Satan brings us unhappiness.
What is the difference between how people feel when they tell lies and how they feel when they tell the truth?
The more we learn about something, the more we can tell the difference between that thing and its opposite.
The more we learn about and follow Jesus Christ, the more we will be able to resist the temptations and deception of Satan.
In todays lesson, will learn about an opposite to Jesus Christ—an anti-Christ. Anyone or anything that actively opposes Jesus Christ (either openly or secretly) is an anti-Christ.

Korihor said he would believe in God if he saw a sign of God’s power. Korihor wanted Alma to perform a miracle to prove there is a God.
Alma told Korihor he had already seen many signs of God’s power through the scriptures and the testimonies of all the prophets.
Alma said the earth and everything on it and the movement of the planets in the sky are also signs that there is a God.

Let’s review the Thirteenth Article of Faith – We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul — We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. Enr. Act. 2 mp3 wma wav

President Ezra Taft Benson, the thirteenth President of the Church, said this: “There is a power in the [Book of Mormon] which will begin to flow into your lives the moment you begin a serious study of the book. You will find greater power to resist temptation. You will find the power to avoid deception. “You will find the power to stay on the strait and narrow path” (A Witness and a Warning, pp. 21–22). Enr. Act. 4
I bear testimony that we will not be deceived if we will keep the commandments, follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost, study the scriptures, and follow the living prophet.
