Book of Mormonisms

Did they really say THAT?

Nephi – ISIS What is the difference?

Posted by coventryrm on Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Seems to me the only difference between ISIS and Nephi is whether or not you actually believe God is (or was) talking to these individuals.

4:12 And it came to pass that the Spirit said unto me again: Slay him, for the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands;

4:13 Behold the Lord slayeth the wicked to bring forth his righteous purposes. It is better that one man should perish than that a nation should dwindle and perish in unbelief.
4:14 And now, when I, Nephi, had heard these words, I remembered the words of the Lord which he spake unto me in the wilderness, saying that: Inasmuch as thy seed shall keep my commandments, they shall prosper in the land of promise.
4:15 Yea, and I also thought that they could not keep the commandments of the Lord according to the law of Moses, save they should have the law.
4:16 And I also knew that the law was engraven upon the plates of brass.
4:17 And again, I knew that the Lord had delivered Laban into my hands for this cause — that I might obtain the records according to his commandments.
4:18 Therefore I did obey the voice of the Spirit, and took Laban by the hair of the head, and I smote off his head with his own sword.
