Countering Korihor’s Philosophy

This morning Laura Ingraham broadcast a "best of" episode. She had on an atheist. An evangelical preacher who had "rejected" his faith. It reminded me of Korihor the Anti-Christ. For those not familiar with the story, read Alma 30:6-60.

I also found an article from the July 1992 Ensign, "Countering Korihor’s Philosophy". It relates the teachings of Korihor to modern philosophies such as empiricism: knowledge is gathered primarily through the senses—through what one sees, touches, hears, smells, and tastes. It also shows the best ways to combat these false concepts.
