When King Mosiah is enacting measures to transition the Nephite government from a monarchy to a more democratic form, he adds an important point of warning.
“…If the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land.” (Mosiah 29:27)
-Is the voice of the people choosing iniquity in the United States? Is the voice of the people choosing iniquity in other democratic nations?
-Is the land that has hitherto been visited with great destruction all the Americas? Or is it a specific region within the Americas?
King Mosiah addresses the reality that while God always judges justly, we mortal men and women do not.
“…It is better that a man should be judged of God than of man, for the judgments of God are always just, but the judgments of man are not always just.” (Mosiah 29:12)
-When do the better judgments occur?
-Are the judgments of God active before the Last Judgment?
-Why will the Last Judgment be so final for each individual when compared to the other judgments of God that occur prior to the Last Judgment?
-Do those who have been judged harshly by mortals (whether deserved or not) often have a greater appreciation and yearning for God’s perfect judgment?
