Abstract

In Alma 32 the prophet Alma tells how to plant and nourish the seed of true faith until it grows into a tree of everlasting life. In the next chapter, the word of God, as symbolized by a seed, is described in seven brief statements. One may well imagine that Alma and his followers could have personally recited this declaration in explaining their faith, in much the same way as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recite the Articles of Faith today.
