Link to a talk by Elder Nelson on “children of the covenant”


Very helpful!

Notice the contrast between his talk and this entry in the Encyclopedia of Mormonism:

http://eom.byu.edu/index.php/Born_in_the_Covenant

Elder Nelson talks about being born into the covenant of Abraham, rather than needing to be adopted into that covenant or that family. The EOM entry talks about being born into the covenant blessings of a particular family.
