All the fighting in the Book of Mormon never ceases to amaze me. The politics amaze me! With the death of the cheif judge everyone starts fighting over who gets to take over. Fighting brings a division among the people. It seems that rebellion and division never ends. sigh.
All the contension and contraversy led to more rebellion, confusion, fear, chaos.
"A house devided against itself cannot stand."
Sure wish governments would get this principle.
Sure wish nations would get this principle.
Sure wish family members would get this principle.
Think of all the heartache that could be avoided if people stayed true to God and His will... if there was no contension.
