Today's Favorite Verse: Mormon 4:5
"But, behold, the judgments of God will overtake the wicked; and it is by the wicked that the wicked are punished; for it is the wicked that stir up the hearts of the children of men unto bloodshed."
I have often pondered on this verse, and others like it found in 2 Peter 2:12 and Doctrine & Covenants 63:33. The wicked will destroy the wicked. Why? Because they no longer have the protection of the Lord. Those that deny and curse God are no longer under his protection. The Lord will leave them to the buffetings of Satan, whom they profess to love. Followers of Satan do not get any protection from their master. Satan despises his followers because those that follow him that have a body, denied him what he thought his rightful place. He glories in their utter destruction, and that they will be miserable like himself. If they have no protection from the Lord then they are his. That is a horrible fate to be left alone to the buffetings of Satan. You are left deaf, dumb and blind to any reason. You only see things to the end of your nose. Your anger and revenge is all you can focus on. It will destroy you, because you destroy yourself. There are no friends in that crowd for they will turn their backs on you in a heartbeat. The only loyalty is to your own selfish needs. To me that is a living nightmare. Sadly, I have only to watch the news to see this behavior is happening today. Society's ills will only be solved if people repent.
