Alma 8:11–12

Nevertheless, they hardened their hearts, saying unto him:

“Behold, we know that thou art Alma; and we know that thou art high priest over the church which thou hast established in many parts of the land, according to your tradition; and we are not of thy church, and we do not believe in such foolish traditions.

“And now we know that because we are not of thy church we know that thou hast no power over us; and thou hast delivered up the judgment–seat unto Nephihah; therefore thou art not the chief judge over us.”
