Captain Moroni

Liahona Magazine, 2020/08 Aug

Became chief captain over all the Nephite armies when he was 25 (see Alma 43:17).

Was a brilliant military strategist—he prepared his people with armor and built forts that astonished the Lamanites (see Alma 43, 49, 50).

Created the title of liberty in memory of God, freedom, and family (see Alma 46:12).

Helped end a rebellion (see Alma 62).

Didn’t like violence but fought to protect his people.

Mormon said that if everyone were like Moroni, the powers of hell would be shaken forever (see Alma 48:17).
