Abstract

Alma counseled his wayward son Coriantion to "cross" himself in order to avoid sexual sin. There are various ways to interpret what it means to "cross yourself" but all of them come down to self-mastery. There are various ways to apply this in our world to help us avoid pornography and other inappropriate material.
