This Great and Abominable Church

1 Nephi 13

This chapter details the establishment of the church of the devil. It is instructional to understand its purpose and focuses.

In the church of the devil, most of its pursuits are on lifeless objects: gold, silver, silks, fine-twined linens, and so on. And then it includes one group of people: harlots. This church of the devil is focused on those who would defile themselves, breaking the family covenant.

In contrast, the Church of the Lamb of God focuses on creating covenants and unions of the genders, to establish and build family units. Christ = Family.
