“He Was a Monster”

Brant Gardner

These people take a different twist on the “monster” theme. In this case, Ammon is not an evil semi-divine being, but rather an incarnation of the Great Spirit of the Nephites. As a Nephite god, rather than a Lamanite god, it would be understandable that this Nephite God would do damage to the Lamanites – and the evidence most present was the king’s household lying as if dead.
