Faith VS Fear ( Fear Factor)

Faith can not exist with fear. Have a Fear Factor night. 

Faith Factor

To get started, quote D&C 38:30 which says, “…if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.”

Read the following instructions:

“We are going to play Faith Factor tonight and for those of you who are “prepared” by having some gospel knowledge and knowing how to use the scriptures to look for information, “ye shall not fear”.  But for those of you lacking and slacking in spiritual preparation, ye might have a little fear tonight.

“You have been divided into teams.  Each team has an official spokesperson.  I will ask a question - - you may discuss the answer among yourselves and as soon as you have an answer send your spokesman up to ring this bell and answer.  The first team to correctly answer the question receives 10 points.  The other teams will then have to compete in a challenge.  I will read the challenge and they will quickly send forward the people who will participate.  Some challenges require one person, some more than one person.  Your team may send who they choose, but everyone on the team should participate in at least one challenge at some point.  Don’t keep sending the same person time after time.  The team who wins the challenge is awarded five points and the team who loses the challenge gets 0 points.”
