Alma 48:1-10 Amalickíah logró tener control por completo del pueblo de los lamanitas. Lo hizo sin dinero. Y en el momento que llegó tener dominio sobre el reino de los lamanitas, inmediatamente incitó al corazón del pueblo en contra de los nefitas.

Alma 48:11-25 I appreciate the simplicity of the statements on prosperity found in this chapter. These verse give so much understand into our perspectives on faith and prosperity. The Nephite nation was reluctant to go to war against their brethren, yet they understood that it was better to defend themselves than to permit themselves to […]
Alma 48:1-11 I have been tempted as of late to dwell perhaps a little too much on the agenda of the anti-industrialists, assuming that much of today’s maladies are the result of technology and industrialization.

Alma 46:10-18 Moroni entendió la fuente y la razón por la libertad que había extendido a los Nefitas. Fue –la bendición que Dios había enviado sobre la faz de la tierra por el bien de los justos.– (vs. 10) Al leer esto, me hace reflexionar como antes ellos tuvieron un rey. Esta nueva forma de […]
Alma 46:1-9 Los que estaban irritado por la predicación de la palabra de Dios se organizaba de acuerdo con su ira. Me parece un poco curioso este punto que se distinguiera por su ira.
Alma 46:38-41 The bulk of these verses talks about the peaceful passing of many with their faith firmly intact. There is an interesting side thought that gives insights into how it was that so many died of just old age. (vs. 41) Verse 40 talks about how because of the “many plants and roots which […]
Alma 46:13-37 Captain Moroni, through very deliberate action against those that sought to alter the free government of the people, was able to maintain peace. He rallied the people to arms.
