Ether 14 – Total Anarchy

These last few chapters in Ether are heartbreaking, seeing the results that happened to the Jaredite nation because they would not listen to a prophet. Total anarchy reigns near the end, yet they keep fighting and hating. How can we listen and heed the words of our prophet today, so this same fate doesn’t befall us?

Mormon 6 – An unnecessary tragic ending

The decades of wars come to a shocking end in this last battle Mormon describes. After a quarter of a million Nephites are slaughtered, only 24 are left to be hunted down. Mormon grieves his people’s end, but says they didn’t have to fall. Jesus stood waiting with open arms to receive them. But they would not turn to Him. How can we better turn to our Savior, to avoid the Nephite calamity?
