There were two thoughts that I had as I read through these chapters. The first was on
Moroni, and his actions in judging
Ammoron. It would seem, at first glance,
that calling someone a child of Hell is a deviation from the instruction to
judge not. But somehow it must be
reconcilable, and I think that it comes down to the type of judgment being
The second thought was on Ammoron, and his defense of his position. It has been said that the worst thing you can do to someone who isn’t a victim is to convince them that they are a victim – and the worst thing you can do for someone who is a victim is convince them that they are a victim. Once you begin to believe in your own victimhood, you have truly partaken of Satan’s plan whereby you are no longer an agent unto yourself. Walking that path brings nothing but destruction on the person who believes that way.
