Passage: 3 Nephi 3:10 - 3 Nephi 3:20

10 But it came to pass in the twenty and ninth year, there began to be some disputings among the people;
11 And some were lifted up unto pride and boastings because of their exceeding great riches, yea, even unto great persecutions, For there were many merchants in the land, and also many lawyers and many officers.
12 And the people began to be distinguished by ranks accord- ing to their riches and their chance for learning-
13 Yea, some were ignorant because of their poverty, and others did receive great learning because of their riches;
14 Some were lifted up in pride, and others were exceeding humble; Some did return railing for railing, while others would receive railing and persecution and all manner of afflictions and would not turn and revile again, but were humble and penitent before God.
15 And thus there became a great inequality in all the land, insomuch that the church began to be broken up; Yea, insomuch that in the thirtieth year the church was broken up in all the land, save it were among a few of the Lamanites which were converted unto the true faith;
16 And they would not depart from it, for they were firm and steadfast and immovable, willing with all diligence to keep the commands of the Lord.
17 Now the cause of this iniquity of the people was this: Satan had great power unto the stirring up of the people to do all manner of iniquity, And to the puffing them up with pride, tempting them to seek for power and authority and riches and the vain things of the world.
18 And thus Satan did lead away the hearts of the people to do all manner of iniquity; Therefore, they had not enjoyed peace but a few years.
19 And thus in the commencement of the thirtieth year-the people having been delivered up for the space of a long time, to be carried about by the temptations of the devil whithersoever he desired to carry them, and to do whatsoever iniquity he desired they should- And thus in the commencement of this, the thirtieth year, they were in a state of awful wickedness;
20 Now they did not sin ignorantly, for they knew the will of God concerning them, for it had been taught unto them; Therefore, they did willfully rebel against God.
