The Book of Mormon gives us several warnings, such as this one:
“And now, we can behold the decrees of God concerning this land, that it is a land of promise; and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall serve God, or they shall be swept off when the fulness of his wrath shall come upon them. And the fulness of his wrath cometh upon them when they are ripened in iniquity.” (Ether 2:9)
But we're told by our M2C scholars that the Book of Mormon took place in an imaginary land:
Maybe people aren't repenting because there is no downside to being "swept off" a fantasy map?
For those of us who still believe what Joseph and Oliver taught, as well as what the prophets who reiterated those teachings taught, the warning about being swept off the land remains serious and all too real.
