Journey through the Book of Mormon: 2 Nephi 25 (The Right Way)

28 And the words which I have spoken shall stand as a testimony against you; for they are sufficient to teach any man the right way; for the right way is to believe in Christ and deny him not; for by denying him ye also deny the prophets and the law.

29 And now behold, I say unto you that the right way is to believe in Christ, and deny him not; and Christ is the Holy One of Israel; wherefore ye must bow down before him, and worship him with all your might, mind, and strength, and your whole soul; and if ye do this ye shall in nowise be cast out.

I love Nephi’s repetition here of the refrain ” the right way is to believe in Christ and deny him.”  Nephi emphasizes that all of the things in his record testify of that truth. And then in order to ensure that we do cannot miss or ignore his point, he repeats again the same line. And then he goes on to emphasize our need to love Christ and worship him with all our heart might mind and strength. Nephi didn’t want anyone reading his words to miss the mark or lose sight of the savior.
