The Last Prophet in The Book of Mormon

moroni
The Book of Mormon is actually a tragedy about the fall of a righteous, ancient civilization in America.  They called themselves the Nephites, and over hundreds of years, they eventually all died out through warring.  The scriptures teach that “inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall prosper in the land” (see 2 Nephi 4:4), but the Nephites had fallen into transgression and evil ways.
This oil painting I did depicts the prophet Moroni – the last righteous Nephite to survive.  He was also the last man to write in The Book of Mormon. This is supposed to be him in his final moments with the record before he buried it away. Mornoi’s story is sad for he witnessed the destruction of his people. When I read his account in the book of Moroni, my heart is filled with sympathy and gratitude for all that he suffered in order for us to have this blessed record today. I know this record is true, and I read from it every day.

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.
