“For They Shall Be Thrust Down to Hell!”

W. Cleon Skousen

Nephi leaves no doubt as to the wrath of God which will be heaped out upon those who commit whoredoms and pervert the right way of the Lord. He pronounced three woes upon them and said they would be thrust down to hell.

Now Nephi describes what he saw happening to the corrupt society of the latter days in which those who are ripe in iniquity shall perish:

“Wo unto them that turn aside the just for a thing of naught and revile against that which is good, and say that it is of no worth! For the day shall come that the Lord God will speedily visit the inhabitants of the earth; and in that day that they are fully ripe in iniquity they shall perish. But behold, if the inhabitants of the earth shall repent of their wickedness and abominations they shall not be destroyed, saith the Lord of Hosts. But behold, that great and abominable church, the whore of all the earth, must tumble to the earth, and great must be the fall thereof.”
