Helaman 2:13-14

Helaman 2:13-14

Hi Gramps, It mentions that the Gadianton Robbers will be the eventual down fall of the Nephite people, I understand that. My question is in verse 13. I believe this is Mormon talking who says that “in the end of this book” then in verse 14 it says not in...

Hey Gramps, I was watching Ninja Warrior (that Japanese show where people try to get through ridiculously difficult obstacle courses) and when describing the course they said the phrase “many are called but few are chosen”. I thought that phrase was only...
The Book of Mormon Musical

The Book of Mormon Musical
