strtoupper('“T')he Plan of Salvation”

Jarom, son of Enos, was reluctant to write much about his prophesying and revelations: “For what could I write more than my fathers have written? For have not they revealed the plan of salvation?” Moroni, the last of the Nephite record keepers, felt the same way: there was little space left on the plates, and what could he possibly add? But that was eight hundred years after Jarom! Jarom felt that all Lehi, Nephi, Jacob, and Enos had written was sufficient. Nevertheless, there was much to do among his people because they had some serious “anatomy” problems: their hearts were hard, their ears were deaf, their minds were blind, and their necks were stiff—symbolizing the fact that the merciful message of heaven was not getting through to them.

The plan of salvation (see also Alma 24:14; 42:5; Moses 6:62) is otherwise called in the Book of Mormon:

The “plan of the great Creator” (2 Nephi 9:6).

The “plan of the Eternal God” (Alma 34:9).

The “plan of mercy” (Alma 42:15, 31).

The “plan of deliverance” (2 Nephi 11:5).

The “plan of redemption” (Jacob 6:8; Alma 12:25, 26, 30, 32, 33; 17:16; 18:39; 22:13; 29:2; 34:16, 31; 39:18; 42:11, 13).

The “plan of happiness” (Alma 42:8, 16).
