Passage: Alma 6:5 - Alma 6:15

5 And he began to teach the people in the land of Melek, according to the holy order of God by which he had been called; and he began to teach the people throughout all the land of Melek.
6 And it came to pass that the people came to him throughout all the borders of the land which was by the wilderness side.
7 And they were baptized throughout all the land, so that when he had finished his work at Melek, he departed thence, and traveled three days' journey on the north of the land of Melek; and he came to a city which was called Ammonihah.
8 Now it was the custom of the people of Nephi, to call their lands, and their cities, and their villages, yea, even all their small villages, after the name of him who first possessed them; and thus it was with the land of Ammonihah.
9 And it came to pass that when Alma had come to the city of Ammonihah, he began to preach the word of God unto them.
10 Now Satan had gotten great hold upon the hearts of the people of the city of Ammonihah; therefore they would not hearken unto the words of Alma.
11 Nevertheless Alma labored much in the spirit, wrestling with God in mighty prayer, that he would pour out his Spirit upon the people who were in the city: that he would also grant that he might baptize them unto repentance;
12 Nevertheless, they hardened their hearts, saying unto him, Behold, we know that thou art Alma; and we know that thou art high priest over the church which thou hast established in many parts of the land, according to your tradition;
13 And we are not of thy church, and we do not believe in such foolish traditions.
14 And now we know that because we are not of thy church, we know that thou hast no power over us;
15 And thou hast delivered up the judgment seat unto Nephihah; therefore thou art not the chief judge over us.
