Ether : 7
 So...  Sometimes I feel like I write things here that could get me into trouble, but I figure, if this is what I really think, and I'm sincere about it, then right or wrong, the truth will eventually come out.  Many times, I've thought one thing, and then upon further studying and prayer, have found out I was wrong ... and I'm okay with that.  Life can be turbulent, and sometimes a change of direction is needed.

So..  With the Lamanites' darkening of skin, thing.  I've often tried to understand what that was all about, and I've often caught myself thinking that due to wickedness, their skin was darkened - and that this was a pattern.  Verse 4 of this chapter states that exactly the opposite happened.  Seems like the descendents of Corihor got more fair.  The "Curse of Blackness" of the Lamanites must have been due to something specific to them, because I believe this was a rare case.  Anyway...  Good to find more knowledge.

Very interesting in verse 25, that the government was the entity by which repentance was gained in the kingdom.  Creating laws that allowed prophets of God to go where ever they wanted, and preach the word of God.

Verse 27 is the clincher.  "...and he remembered the great things the Lord had done for his fathers."  I believe that indeed is a pattern for all of us.  To remember the greatness, and mercy, and power of God.
