“Down in Pure Testimony”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

Mormon explains that Alma determined to bear down in pure testimony against the people. His expressions were not motivated by anger or spite, nor directed against the people in the spirit of condemnation. Rather, his heart- motivated by the pure love of Christ- was bent upon saving their souls. He loved them and simply could not stand by and allow them to destroy themselves.
