Now behold, it is these secret oaths and covenants which Alma commanded his son should not go forth unto the world, Lest they should be a means of bringing down the people unto destruction.
Now behold, those secret oaths and covenants did not come forth unto Gaddianton from the records which were delivered unto Helaman;
But behold, they were put into the heart of Gaddianton by that same being who did entice our first parents to partake of the forbidden fruit- Yea, that same being who did plot with Cain, that if he would murder his brother Abel, it should not be known unto the world;
And he did plot with Cain and his followers from that time forth.
And also it is that same being who put it into the hearts of the people to build a tower sufficiently high that they might get to heaven.
And it was that same being which led on the people which came from that Tower into this land, Which spread the works of darkness and abominations over all the face of the land, until he dragged the people down to an entire destruction and to an everlasting hell. 155
Yea, it is that same being who put it into the heart of Gaddianton to still carry on the work of darkness and of secret murder; And he hath brought it forth from the beginning of man, even down to this time.
And behold, it is he which is the author of all sin; And behold, he doth carry on his works of darkness and secret murder, And doth hand down their plots and their oaths and their covenants and their plans of awful wickedness from generation to generation, According as he can get hold upon the hearts of the children of men.
And now behold, he had got great hold upon the hearts of the Nephites, Yea, insomuch that they had become exceeding wicked;
Yea, the more part of them had turned out of the way of righteousness, And did trample under their feet the commandments of God, And did turn unto their own ways, And did build up unto themselves idols of their gold and of their silver.
And it came to pass that all these iniquities did come unto them in the space of not many years, Insomuch that the more part of it had come unto them in the sixty and seventh year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
