I am teaching this Sunday and I am troubled by 3 Nephi 2:14-16 (below):

14 And it came to pass that those Lamanites who had united with the Nephites were numbered among the Nephites;

15 And their curse was taken from them, and their skin became white like unto the Nephites;

16 And their young men and their daughters became exceedingly fair, and they were numbered among the Nephites, and were called Nephites. And thus ended the thirteenth year.

Of course the easy answer is to ignore or gloss over it, but these verses are very troubling and should be addressed head on. What are your ideas/thoughts?
