Omni 1:17

Recommended Posts

Omni 1Â*

17 And at the time that Mosiah discovered them, they had become exceedingly numerous. Nevertheless, they had had many wars and serious contentions, and had fallen by the sword from time to time; and their language had become corrupted; and they had brought no records with yhem; and they denied the being of their Creator; and Mosiah, nor the people of Mosiah, could understand them.

Quote for Discussion

“No Records’

The Mulekites, who migrated to the American continent shortly after Lehi and his family left Jerusalem, failed to bring with them any sacred scriptures or records. Omni recorded the condition of a nation without scriptures: [Omni 1:17]. Even more serious than their continuous contentions and wars and the corruption of their language was the tragedy that they did not know the Savior. The pattern is the same for individuals as it is for nations. Without searching the scriptures, they cease to know the Savior.

L. Lionel Kendrick, Ensign, May 1993 [salt Lake City: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1993], 14
