that I defended thy servants and thy flocks, and slew seven of their brethren with the
sling and with the sword, and smote off the arms of others, in order to defend thy
flocks and thy servants; behold, is it this that causeth thy marvelings? I say unto

servant; therefore, whatsoever thou desirest which is right, that will I do.

Jesus Commits Genocide
Nephi 8 14-17:
And many great and notable cities were sunk, and many were burned, and many were shaken
till the buildings thereof had fallen to the earth, and the inhabitants thereof were
slain, and the places were left desolate. And there were some cities which remained;
but the damage thereof was exceedingly great, and there were many in them who were
slain. And there were some who were carried away in the whirlwind; and whither they
went no man knoweth, save they know that they were carried away. And thus the face of
the whole earth became deformed, because of the tempests, and the thunderings, and the
lightnings, and the quaking of the earth.

And behold, that great city Moroni have I caused to be sunk in the depths of the sea,
and the inhabitants thereof to be drowned. And behold, that great city Moronihah have I
covered with earth, and the inhabitants thereof... And behold, the city of Gilgal have
I caused to be sunk, and the inhabitants thereof to be buried up in the depths of the
earth; Yea, and the city of Onihah and the inhabitants thereof, and the city of Mocum
and the inhabitants thereof, and the city of Jerusalem and the inhabitants thereof; and
waters have I caused to come up in the stead thereof... And behold, the city of
Gadiandi, and the city of Gadiomnah, and the city of Jacob, and the city of Gimgimno,
all these have I caused to be sunk, and made hills and valleys in the places thereof;
and the inhabitants thereof have I buried (alive) up in the depths of the earth... And
behold, that great city Jacobugath, which was inhabited by the people of king Jacob,
have I caused to be burned with fire... I did cause them to be burned, to destroy them
from before my face... And behold, the city of Laman, and the city of Josh, and the
city of Gad, and the city of Kishkumen, have I caused to be burned with fire, and the
inhabitants thereof... I did send down fire and destroy them... And many great
destructions have I caused to come upon this land, and upon this people... Behold, I am
Jesus Christ the Son of God. I created the heavens and the earth, and all things that
in them are. I was with the Father from the beginning. I am in the Father, and the
Father in me; and in me hath the Father glorified his name.

Cannibalism (Which Follows Torture)
And notwithstanding this great aabomination of the Lamanites, it doth not exceed that
of our people in Moriantum. For behold, many of the daughters of the Lamanites have
they taken prisoners; and after depriving them of that which was most dear and precious
above all things, which is chastity and virtue— And after they had done this
thing, they did murder them in a most cruel manner, torturing their bodies even unto
death; and after they have done this, they devour their flesh like unto wild beasts,
because of the hardness of their hearts; and they do it for a token of bravery.

For behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all
that do wickedly, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith
the Lord of Hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that
fear my name, shall the Son of Righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye
shall go forth and grow up as calves in the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked;
for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this,
saith the Lord of Hosts.

Alma 14: 8-13
And they brought their wives and children together, and whosoever believed or had been
taught to believe in the word of God they caused that they should be cast into the
fire... And it came to pass that they took Alma and Amulek, and carried them forth to
the place of martyrdom, that they might witness the destruction of those who were
consumed by fire. And when Amulek saw the pains of the women and children who were
consuming in the fire, he also was pained; and he said unto Alma: How can we witness
this awful scene? Therefore let us stretch forth our hands, and exercise the power of
God which is in us, and save them from the flames. But Alma said unto him: The Spirit
constraineth me that I must not stretch forth mine hand... Now Amulek said unto Alma:
Behold, perhaps they will burn us also. And Alma said: Be it according to the will of
the Lord. But, behold, our work is not finished; therefore they burn us not.

Alma 44: 12-14
...one of Moroni’s soldiers... smote Zerahemnah that he took off his scalp and it
fell to the earth. And Zerahemnah withdrew from before them into the midst of his
soldiers. And it came to pass that the soldier who stood by, who smote off the scalp of
Zerahemnah, took up the scalp from off the ground by the hair, and laid it upon the
point of his sword, and stretched it forth unto them, saying unto them with a loud
voice: Even as this scalp has fallen to the earth, which is the scalp of your chief, so
shall ye fall to the earth except ye will deliver up your weapons of war and depart
with a covenant of peace.
