Ether. But when they voice spoke a third time, they were more prepared. 6 and behold, the third time they did understand the voice which they heard; and it saith unto them, . But you find you are less inclined to check the film in your camera than you are to check the faith in your heart." 4 And it came to pass that again they heard the voice, and they understood it not; 3 Nephi 18. 3 Nephi 10. 3 Nephi 26.

Therefore, let us avoid contention, in our councils and in all our intercourse one with another." If only the Bible had this phrase, then there would have been no disputations.
