1 Nephi 13 - Plain and Precious Things

Nephi sees in vision the Great and Abominable Church. I liked this quote found in the manual:

“Actually, no single known historical church, denomination, or set of believers meets all the requirements for the great and abominable church: it must have formed among the Gentiles; it must have edited and controlled the distribution of the scriptures; it must have slain the Saints of God, including the Apostles and prophets; it must be in league with civil governments and use their police power to enforce its religious views; it must have dominion over all the earth; it must pursue great wealth and sexual immorality; and it must last until close to the end of the world. 963 more words

1 Nephi 10 - The Gathering of Israel

We learn of the scattering and gathering of Israel in verses 11-14.

The gathering of Israel began with the restoration. “In 1831 the Prophet Joseph Smith received this revelation: “The keys of the kingdom of God are committed unto man on the earth, and from thence shall the gospel roll forth unto the ends of the earth, as the stone which is cut out of the mountain without hands shall roll forth, until it has filled the whole earth” (Elder Neil A. 656 more words

1 Nephi 9 - A Wise Purpose

In chapter 9 Nephi explains that there are two records. One, a secular history, the other a religious history. As we saw with the Book of Ether, that was a secular history with not much mention of prophets. 473 more words
