“By His Fraud, Gained the Hearts of the People”

Alma 47

Amalickiah understood the importance of deceiving the people or gaining their favor in order to complete he power grab. How different this is from King Benjamin, who also required a lifetime of work to pursue the opposite direction. King Benjamin was not a power grab, but rather a humble acknowledgement of duty that won the hearts of his people.

Amalickiah is self-imploding on a macro-scale.

Why do we need the Gospel of Jesus Christ? To prevent a people from being deceived as were the Lamanites. Without the protections afforded a believing people, wickedness can so easily encroach upon a society and deceive the whole body.

Woe unto you, when all amen shall speak bwell of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Luke 6:26
