“He Caused That They Should Be Brought Before the King”

W. Cleon Skousen

As charges began to be brought against these rebels, the Church didn't really know what to do with this dissident group. Alma knew he could preach, but could he punish? What action should be taken against these rebels who were literally tearing the Church apart? He finally decided to take the problem to the king. Perhaps it was a civil matter and the punishment for wrongdoing should be handled by the king.
