Passage: Alma 16:85 - Alma 16:95

85 Now the Zoramites were dissenters from the Nephites, therefore they had had the word of God preached unto them;
86 But they had fallen into great errors, for they would not observe to keep the commandments of God and His statutes according to the law of Moses,
87 Neither would they observe the performances of the church to continue in prayer and supplication to God daily, that they might not enter into temptation, Yea, in fine, they did pervert the ways of the Lord in very many instances; Therefore, for this cause Alma and his brethren went into the land to preach the word unto them.
88 Now when they had come into the land, Behold, to their astonishment, they found that the Zoramites had built synagogues, And that they did gather themselves together on one day of the week, which day they did call the day of the Lord;

92 And also, Thou hast made it known unto us that there shall be no Christ, But Thou art the same yesterday, today and forever; And Thou hast elected us that we shall be saved, whilst all around us are elected to be cast by Thy wrath down to hell, For the which holiness, O God, we thank Thee.
93 "And we also thank Thee that Thou hast elected us that we may not be led away after the foolish traditions of our brethren which doth bind them down to a belief of Christ, which doth lead their hearts to wander far from Thee our God;
94 And again, we thank Thee, O God, that we are a chosen and a holy people. Amen."
