Product Description

When we think of wicked people in the Book of Mormon, King Noah is one of the first who comes to mind. But he never could have done the damage he did if his pleasure-loving people had not been willing to turn a blind eye to his iniquities. Michael Wilcox calls this "Noah blindness," and he says it "is evidenced in our own lives when we can't see the danger or evil in our choice of friends, influences, ideas, or environments." This talk helps us avoid the pain that inevitably follows such self-deception by showing us how to see more clearly.

This Bookshelf Single is a written transcript of the original audio talk.

John Bytheway actually talks about this talk and recomends this to listen to this talk. I can not wait to hear it!

S. Michael Wilcox does an excelent job discribing the 'King Noah Blindness'. I suggest it to all those who want to know more about King Noah and his priests. Or how to stay away from the 'King Noah Blindness'.
