After the Savior’s appearance to the Nephites, they experienced nearly 200 years of unity and peace because they were “all converted unto the Lord” (4 Nephi 1:2).

Happiness and Unity

The Nephites were happy and united through their righteous actions (see 4 Nephi 1:2–15).

  • They were fair and kind to each other.

  • They followed the commandments of Christ.

  • They were humble in fasting and prayer.

Sorrow and Division

Unfortunately, those years of unity and happiness did not last forever. Eventually, the Nephites stopped obeying the commandments of God (see 4 Nephi 1:24–31). In doing so:

  • They became selfish and prideful.

  • They built their own churches for financial gain.

  • They denied Christ’s Church.
