What does it mean when Isaiah says that the Lord is our stumbling-block? 2 Nephi says first that the Lord “shall be our stone of stumbling” then that “many shall stumble and fall”. That makes it sound like the Lord makes us fall. But I know that that’s not it. In a previous post, I wrote “a stumbling block is something that helps us when we fall”. But how does it help us? I think it means that he will cushion our fall. For example, when we do something wrong, we figuratively “fall”. But the Lord “cushions our fall” and makes it easier to get back up.
