So, the times, they are a changing. The Nephites are bad and the Lamenites are good. Twist! One of the coolest stories is the story of Samuel the Lamenite. He risks it all and goes over into Nephite territory to spread the word, that its' time to repent because Jesus Christ is about to be born!
Ever tried to point out that someone needs to change their lifestyle? It's probably not met with hugs and laughter. Good times, I'm sure. I don't know. I haven't ever told someone they need to repent. Cuz, that's kinda my thing. To not get people angry with me.
Anyway, I am assuming it takes a lot of faith in God to travel to another city, climb their wall and prophesy (yell it out) that it's time to repent.
Not so surprising is that the Nephites are not liking this message. In fact they try to kill him for pointing out that their lifestyle is wicked and needs to stop. They shoot arrows at him. And not one hits him. Not even one. He just keeps pleading with them to repent. And he gives them the signs of the Saviors birth. All while on top of the wall that encircles their city.
I found this video on YouTube of two missionaries singing a song about Samuel the Lamenite. I'm assuming that they wrote it? I have no idea. I've never heard it before but I love it. It's actually a great song!
