Christlike Qualities In Captain Moroni – Part Two   Leave a comment

Brethren,

I do a great deal of pondering on those qualities I mentioned concerning the great Captain Moroni in Part One of this series. Getting to this portion of the story concerning the great Captain, we have a little study aid that can be found on the Book Of Mormon study videos- I believe originally made for seminary classes. Indeed, that is where I remember first seeing the two videos that will follow my initial text. Care to know how Moroni is described in the Book Of Mormon? Open your scriptures to Alma Chapter 48.

Starting in verse 11, the scriptures tell us:

And Moroni was a strong and a mighty man; he was a man of a perfect understanding; yea, a man that did not delight in bloodshed; a man whose soul did joy in the liberty and the freedom of his country, and his brethren from bondage and slavery;” (Alma 48:11)

Yea, a man whose heart did swell with thanksgiving to his God, for the many privileges and blessings which he bestowed upon his people; a man who did labor exceedingly for the welfare and safety of his people.” (Alma 48:12)

Yea, and he was a man who was firm in the faith of Christ, and he had sworn with an oath to defend his people, his rights, and his country, and his religion, even to the loss of his blood.” (Alma 48:13)

Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men.” (Alma 48:17)

Behold, he was a man like unto Ammon, the son of Mosiah, yea, and even the other sons of Mosiah, yea, and also Alma and his sons, for they were all men of God.” (Alma 48:18)

I hope you can see for yourself, just how great a man Moroni was, both in good faith and character, giving mercy to those whom would listen to the counsel of the Lord, and honorably dealing with all men, regardless of their particular roots…. be it Nephite, Lamanite, Zoramite… etc.

Watch these two videos (And if you are getting this by auto email post, you will have to go to the blog site to watch them) and see if you can’t come to the conclusion that Moroni was an honorable man of God.

Brethren, I bear you my testimony, that I know the Book Of Mormon to be true. I know that many great men and women in both these the latter-days and in times before- fought to preserve these records so that we could have an understanding… and a chance to have and partake of the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This I gratefully share with you all, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
