Passage: 2 Nephi 11:100 - 2 Nephi 11:120
100 Behold, hath he commanded any that they should depart out of the synagogues, or out of the houses of worship?
101 Behold, I say unto you, Nay.
102 Hath he commanded any that they should not partake of his salvation?
103 Behold, I say unto you, Nay; but he hath given it free for all men; and he hath commanded his people that they should persuade all men to repentance.
104 Behold, hath the Lord commanded any that they should not partake of his goodness?
105 Behold, I say unto you, Nay; but all men are privileged the one like unto the other, and none are forbidden.
106 He commandeth that there shall be no priestcrafts; for, behold, priestcrafts are that men preach and set themselves up for a light unto the world, that they may get gain, and praise of the world; but they seek not the welfare of Zion.
107 Behold, the Lord hath forbidden this thing; wherefore, the Lord God hath given a commandment, that all men should have charity, which charity is love.
108 And except they should have charity, they were nothing: wherefore, if they should have charity, they would not suffer the laborer in Zion to perish.
109 But the laborer in Zion shall labor for Zion; for if they labor for money, they shall perish.
110 And, again, the Lord God hath commanded that men should not murder; that they should not lie; that they should not steal; that they should not take the name of the Lord their God in vain; that they should not envy; that they should not have malice; that they should not contend one with another; that they should not commit whoredoms; and that they should do none of these things;
111 For whoso doeth them shall perish; for none of these iniquities come of the Lord; for he doeth that which is good among the children of men;
112 And he doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men;
113 And he inviteth them all to come unto him, and partake of his goodness;
114 And he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female;
115 And he remembereth the heathen, and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.
116 But behold, in the last days, or in the days of the Gentiles; yea, behold all the nations of the Gentiles, and also the Jews, both those who shall come upon this land, and those who shall be upon other lands; yea, even upon all the lands of the earth; behold, they will be drunken with iniquity, and all manner of abominations;
117 And when that day shall come, they shall be visited of the Lord of hosts, with thunder and with earthquake, and with a great noise, and with storm and with tempest, and with the flame of devouring fire;
118 And all the nations that fight against Zion, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision;
119 Yea, it shall be unto them even as unto a hungry man, which dreameth, and behold he eateth, but he awaketh and his soul is empty;
120 Or like unto a thirsty man which dreameth, and behold he drinketh, but he awaketh, and behold he is faint, and his soul hath appetite:
