“The Lord Did Visit Them in the Fulness of His Wrath”

“We have been warned that we are ripening in iniquity and that we will be destroyed if we do not repent. Now my beloved brothers and sisters, I realize that these predictions are not pleasing, but nevertheless they speak the truth…There is but one way these impending calamities can be avoided, and that way is repentance…the foreboding calamities can be averted if the inhabitants of the earth will repent, believe, and have faith in God as our heavenly Father, in His Son Jesus Christ as our Redeemer, and will conform to their teachings.” (The Tragic Cycle, pp. 15-16 as taken from Latter-day Commentary on the Book of Mormon compiled by K. Douglas Bassett, p. 506)
