Cruelty in Ether

  1. "He that will contend against the word of the Lord, let him be accursed; and he that shall deny these things, let him be accursed."
    (Those who disbelieve in the Book of Mormon will go to hell.) 4:8

  2. "At my command the inhabitants thereof shall pass away, even so as by fire."
    (If he feels like it, God can burn people to death.) 4:9

  3. "He that believeth not shall be damned." 4:18

  4. Avoid all those secret, abominable, murderous, wicked oaths and combinations passed down since the time of Cain. If you don't, God will have to kill you. 8:15-24

  5. "Saith the Lord: I will pour out the fulness of my wrath." 9:20

  6. "There came forth poisonous serpents also upon the face of the land, and did poison many people." 9:31

  7. To punish the people for "their wicked combinations," God sent wars, famines, and pestilences. The resulting destruction was the greatest ever seen on the face of the earth -- greater than the flood of Noah, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, or World War II. Yet there is no evidence for any of this today. 11:7

  8. The prophets prophesied "that the Lord would utterly destroy them from off the face of the earth." 11:12

  9. "The Lord did visit them in the fulness of his wrath ... for their everlasting destruction." 14:25

  10. Millions of Jaredites kill each other in battle, leaving only their two leaders alive: Coriantumr and Shiz. Coriantur cuts of the head of Shiz (with his non-existent sword, of course) and then dies. Don't you just love a happy ending? 15:30-32
