Passage: Alma 16:14 - Alma 16:24

14 And after this manner did he preach, saying: "O ye that are bound down under a foolish and a vain hope, Why do ye yoke yourselves with such foolish things? Why do ye look for a Christ? For no man can know of anything which is to come.
15 "Behold, these things which ye call prophecies, which ye say are handed down by holy prophets, Behold, they are foolish traditions of your fathers; How do ye know of their surety?
16 Behold, ye cannot know of things which ye do not see, Therefore, ye cannot know that there shall be a Christ.
17 "Ye look forward and say that ye see a remission of your sins; But behold, it is the effects of a frenzied mind, And this derangement of your minds comes because of the tradition of your fathers which lead you away into a belief of things which are not so."
18 And many more such things did he say unto them, telling them that there could be no atonement made for the sins of men; But every man fared in this life, according to the management of the creature, Therefore, every man prospered, according to his genius, And that every man conquered, according to his strength; And whatsoever a man did was no crime.
19 And thus he did preach unto them, leading away the hearts of many, causing them to lift up their heads in their wickedness, Yea, leading away many women, and also men, to commit whoredoms, telling them that when a man was dead, that was the end thereof.
20 Now this man went over to the Land of Jershon also to preach these things among the people of Ammon, which were once the people of the Lamanites;
21 But behold, they were more wise than many of the Nephites, for they took him and bound him and carried him before Ammon, which was a high priest over that people;
22 And it came to pass that he caused that he should be carried out of the land.
23 And it came to pass that he came over into the Land of Gideon and began to preach unto them also; And here he did not have much success, for he was taken and bound and carried before the high priest, and also the chief judge over the land.
24 And it came to pass that the high priest saith unto him: "Why do ye go about perverting the ways of the Lord?
