Mormon - Chapter 4

This chapter contains what I take to be a very important principle:

" is by the wicked that the wicked are punished..."
I believe it is generally safe to assume that fleeing to Zion will spare the vast majority of the righteous from direct physical conflict with their enemies.  Meanwhile, the enemies will quarrel, battle and destroy among themselves.  Satan does not support his own.  He'll destroy anybody, even those whose loyalty seems to be with him.

In the Book of Moses 7:14 we read of Enoch's Zion:
" great was the fear of the enemies of the people of God, that they fled and stood afar off..."
I expect that the Zion of the Latter-days will be similarly full of faith and similarly protected and cared for.  Pretty cool, until you consider how far we have to go, to be so prepared.
