Short summary. Corianton was a leader in the Church who attempted to cover up and justify his sexual sins.
As Alma 39:11 points out, because of Corianton’s actions people rejected the gospel.
I bring this up because I recently encountered a different interpretation of Corianton’s issues.
It seems this time of year is rife with “interesting” scripture interpretation.
Questions for our readers:
- Have you seen Corianton used to decry things other than the sins of leaders driving people away from God?
- Have you encountered any unique or unusual interpretation of scripture recently?
- Do you think covering up or justifying sin is any less common today than it was in the past?
