Zarahemla’s Age of War
A man named Amalickiah rounds up all those disaffected with church; they determine to kill church members.
Amalickiah campaigns to be king of this group of people, and he gets support because people holding lower level public offices (hoping for political promotions) were among his followers.
Things look more ominous for the Nephites as many faithful church members lose faith and join with Amalickiah and his followers.
This dissension was all in spite of the fact that the Nephites had just witnessed the power of God helping them in their victory over Zerahemnah and his militants.
