Today's Favorite Verse: Alma 16:9

Today's Favorite Verse: Alma 16:9
"And thus ended the eleventh year of the judges, the Lamanites having been driven out of the land, and the people of Ammonihah were destroyed; yea, every living soul of the Ammonihahites was destroyed, and also their great city, which they said God could not destroy, because of its greatness."

It's not a favorite verse to see what happened to the people of the city of Ammonihah, but I had to sit and ponder over it. It was only two years earlier that their hearts were so cold they burned the women and children that believed the words of Alma and Amulek. They had been warned by a prophet to repent or their city would be destroyed. They thought that a crazy foolish thing. Then totally unaware their enemies the Lamanites came upon them and destroyed them in a single day. The destruction was so fast that the Nephites could not even bring up an army to assist them. The Lord's protecting hand had been removed, it could not prevent them from being attacked. The wicked will destroy the wicked if given the chance. They do it to themselves.
