This is kind of the most depressing part of the Book of Mormon. The Nephites are completely wicked and Mormon just stopped leading them - he was finally fed up with their wickedness. I can't imagine living in a society where I was the only righteous person (sometimes I feel like the only wicked person living in a righteous society).
I do really love the fervor of Mormon's testimony at this point. All he wants is for people to repent and come to God.
Sometimes I feel that way - if only I could persuade everyone to believe in Christ and repent.
"And I would that I could persuade all ye ends of the earth to repent and prepare to stand before the judgement-seat of Christ."
Have you ever felt alone like Mormon? What parts of his story stand out to you? What part of his testimony is most meaningful to you?
