“Among All the People of the Nephites”

W. Cleon Skousen

When the Saints are righteous and at peace there are certain wonderful characteristics that seem to appear in their society. It is almost a miracle that it could be recorded that at this time of peace among the Nephites “there was no inequality among them”:

“And there was no inequality among them; the Lord did pour out his Spirit on all the face of the land to prepare the minds of the children of men, or to prepare their hearts to receive the word which should be taught among them at the time of his coming -- That they might not be hardened against the word, that they might not be unbelieving, and go on to destruction, but that they might receive the word with joy, and as a branch be grafted into the true vine, that they might enter into the rest of the Lord their God.”
