In this next series of questions directed to the people of Zarahemla, Alma states that experiencing a change of heart can be temporary and that one must continually strive to be blameless before God. His dualistic view is apparent: those who are blameless are of the fold of God, and all others are of the fold of the devil. In this part of his speech, he guides the spiritual progress of his listeners by directing them in assessing their own spiritual condition, identifying with a community that believes in Jesus Christ, and personally obtaining spiritual knowledge.
