Moroni 10 – “Come unto Christ, and Be Perfected in Him”

December 14, 2020 to December 20, 2020

Moroni teaches about God’s mercy and then exhorts readers to act upon the gifts that God has given. He closes his record with his admonition and testimony. 

“Sealings and Mercies: Moroni’s Final Exhortation in Moroni 10,” video presentation by James E. Faulconer. A written version is available to download at Journal of Book of Mormon Studies 22, no. 1 (2013).
This close reading of Moroni 10 looks at each of Moroni’s eight exhortations and asks, to what does Moroni exhort us? This is a message of God’s mercy and our need for charity. 

“Moroni 9–10: Remember How Merciful the Lord Hath Been,” Bruce K. Satterfield, Fourth Nephi, From Zion to Destruction
The invitation to come unto Christ offered by Moroni in the final chapter is a fitting conclusion to this encouraging book. It is a curious thing, therefore, that Moroni included in his writings an appalling letter from his father. Even more striking is the fact that Moroni placed the letter immediately before his own invitation for everyone to come unto Christ.

Moroni 10 is one of several passages in the Book of Mormon that teach the Atonement. See the continuity of the message across the teachings of many prophets.
