I come back to this over and over again – the best benefit of the war chapters of the Book of Mormon is when we use those chapters as an analogy for the war within each of our own hearts. Taken in that light, this chapter teaches us that there is a part within our soul that desires iniquity. We must confront that part and prevail over it, but even that isn’t enough. When that is complete, we must then turn around and do all that we actively can to pull that part of our nature down because if we do not ultimately that part of our nature will regain strength and in combination with outside forces will bring about our destruction.
