2nd Nephi : 4 - Part 1
One thing which caught my eye this time, was the phrase, "I know that if ye are brought up in the way ye should go ye will not depart from it."

I had to stop and read the sentence 4 or 5 times, just to make sure I wasn't seeing things.

The footnotes on that sentence seem to confirm the vague meaning I'm deriving from it as well.

So.....  Taken to the extreme, that sentence means "If your kids are brought up in the way of the Lord, they'll never stray from it."

Hmm... I'm going to have to really think about this one for a bit, because that flies in the face of many, many real-world examples I'm personally familiar with.  It's not that the scripture is wrong, it's my understanding which is limited.

(15 minutes later)...  I'm going to have to stop here and research this more.  Very intriguing...

Well.. One more thing.  It's interesting to note the blessing upon Laman and Lemuel.  Their seed won't be destroyed, and in the end, their seed will be blessed.  How prophetic indeed!
