Listen to a Prophet’s Voice

Contentions between the Nephite group and Lamanite group continued to grow and many wars ensued.  However, sometimes the wars would be internal within one group, and many times they weren’t just physical but spiritual.  In The Book of Mormon we learn much about the damage to the soul pride causes and how it can destroy nations.  Because of pride, many would turn away from a prophet’s voice thinking they knew better.  This drawing shows just one example.  When the prophet Abinadi came to the group of people lead by evil King Noah, the people grew angry with him when he told them they needed to repent.  The people were so wicked that they burned to death him for his preaching!  Maybe we don’t physically burn our prophets today, but disregarding the vital things they have to say is a similar treatment. You can read the exciting  full story of Abinadi starting in Mosiah 11.

About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
