“…It shall come to pass that the Lord God shall commence his work among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people, to bring about the restoration of his people upon the earth. And with righteousness shall the Lord God judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth. And he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. For the time speedily cometh that the Lord God shall cause a great division among the people, and the wicked will he destroy; and he will spare his people, yea, even if it so be that he must destroy the wicked by fire.” (2 Nephi 30:8-10)

-According to these versus, what kind of person will the Lord help and protect as wickedness grows around the world?
-Will the kind of people the Lord will protect and gather during the last days take joy is seeing the wicked suffer? Are those who are humble and meek likely to have ill will towards others and have a vengeful spirit?
-Would God destroy the wicked other than to spare His people?
