93 Yea, can ye be puffed up in the pride of your hearts? Yea, will ye still persist in the wearing of costly apparel and setting your hearts upon the vain things of the world, upon your riches? 94 Yea, will ye persist in supposing that ye are better, one than another? 95 Yea, will ye persist in the persecutions of your brethren who humble themselves and do walk after the holy order of God wherewith they have been brought into this church, having been sanctified by the Holy Spirit?- And they do bring forth works which are meet for repentance- 96 Yea, and will you persist in turning your backs upon the poor and the needy and in withholding your substance from them? 97 "And finally, all ye that will persist in your wickedness, I say unto you that these are they which shall be hewn down and cast into the fire except they speedily repent. 98 "And now I say unto you, all you that are desirous to follow the voice of the Good Shepherd: Come ye out from the wicked! and be ye separate! and touch not their unclean things! 99 "And behold, their names shall be blotted out, that the names of the wicked shall not be numbered among the names of the righteous, that the word of God may be fulfilled which saith: 'The names of the wicked shall not be mingled with the names of My people, 100 For the names of the righteous shall be written in the Book of Life, And unto them will I grant an inheritance at My right hand.' 101 "And now my brethren, what have ye to say against this? 102 I say unto you, if ye speak against it, it matters not, for the word of God must be fulfilled; 103 For what shepherd is there among you having many sheep doth not watch over them, that the wolves enter not and devour his flock? 104 And behold, if a wolf enter his flock, doth he not drive him out? Yea, and at the last, if he can, he will destroy him. 105 "And now I say unto you that the Good Shepherd doth call after you; And if you will hearken unto His voice, He will bring you into His fold and ye are His sheep; 106 And He commandeth you that ye suffer no ravenous wolf to enter among you, that ye may not be destroyed. 107 "And now I, Alma, do command you in the language of Him who hath commanded me, that ye observe to do the words which I have spoken unto you; 108 I speak by way of command unto you that belong to the church. "And unto those which do not belong to the church, I speak by way of invitation, saying, Come and be baptized unto repentance that ye also may be partakers of the fruit of the tree of life."
Alma 4 1 And now it came to pass that after Alma had made an end of speaking unto the people of the church which was established in the City of Zarahemla, He ordained priests and elders by laying on his hands, according to the order of God, to preside and watch over the church. 2 And it came to pass that whomsoever did not belong to the church who repented of their sins was baptized unto repentance and was received into the church. 3 And it also came to pass that whomsoever did belong to the church that did not repent of their wickedness and humble themselves before God- 4 I mean those which were lifted up in the pride of their hearts- The same were rejected and their names were blotted out, that their names were not numbered among those of the righteous.
