Mosiah Inquired of the Lord

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

The bloodthirsty, revengeful character of the Lamanites was too well known to the king for him to think of his sons going into their midst without causing him feelings of dread and apprehension. He had no desire to quench their holy zeal towards doing the work of God, or the love they had for their unfortunate fellows. He saw that in doing so, he might deny thousands the opportunity of hearing the everlasting truths of the Gospel.

Mosiah, therefore, inquired of the Lord.
