Book of Mormon | “The Unfairness and Injustice of the Wicked in 3 Nephi 1” by grego

The Unfairness and Injustice of the Wicked in 3 Nephi 1

Here’s what’s going on:
3 Nephi 1:5 But there were some who began to say that the time was past for the words to be fulfilled, which were spoken by Samuel, the Lamanite.

3 Nephi 1:6 And they began to rejoice over their brethren, saying: Behold the time is past, and the words of Samuel are not fulfilled; therefore, your joy and your faith concerning this thing hath been vain.

3 Nephi 1:7 And it came to pass that they did make a great uproar throughout the land…

3 Nephi 1:9 Now it came to pass that there was a day set apart by the unbelievers, that all those who believed in those traditions should be put to death except the sign should come to pass, which had been given by Samuel the prophet.

Wow, isn’t that interesting: “if the sign doesn’t come, you die”.

Come on, what about basic fairness and justice? What about the other hand? What if the sign *does* come? Will the nonbelievers allow themselves to be killed/ die/ kill themselves?

No, of course not.

Anyway, it seems to be the case that most everything based on faith is under this type of attack from nonbelievers. For some reason, people take great pleasure in trying to ridicule others… even to the point of wanting to kill them because they believed something that, well, really didn’t matter to others… Somehow they miss their hypocrisy; and the mercy they extend—to themselves (called injustice)!
