“Walk Blameless Before Him”

Brant Gardner

Rhetorical: Alma uses the imagery of the path again. In this case, he uses the imagery of walking on the path as a metaphor for following the gospel. The idea of walking a path is an apt metaphor for the gospel, because the idea of walking implies movement and action, both of which are required of those who accept the gospel. This is not an idea to be assimilated, but a way of life to live. It is not an intellectual exercise, but a very real exercise of the soul that should move us from the natural man to the man of God.
