Passage: 1 Nephi 3:206 - 1 Nephi 3:226
206 And that great pit which hath been digged for them by that great and abominable church, which was founded by the devil and his children, that he might lead away the souls of men down to hell;
207 Yea, that great pit which hath been digged for the destruction of men, shall be filled by those who digged it, unto their utter destruction, saith the Lamb of God;
208 Not the destruction of the soul, save it be the casting of it into that hell which hath no end;
209 For behold, this is according to the captivity of the devil, and also according to the justice of God, upon all those who will work wickedness and abomination before him.
210 And it came to pass that the angel spake unto me, Nephi, saying, Thou hast beheld that if the Gentiles repent, it shall be well with them;
211 And thou also knowest concerning the covenants of the Lord unto the house of Israel;
212 And thou also hast heard, that whoso repenteth not, must perish;
213 Therefore, wo, be unto the Gentiles, if it so be that they harden their hearts against the Lamb of God;
214 For the time cometh, saith the Lamb of God, that I will work a great and a marvelous work among the children of men;
215 A work which shall be everlasting, either on the one hand or on the other;
216 Either to the convincing of them unto peace and life eternal, or unto the deliverance of them to the hardness of their hearts and the blindness of their minds, unto their being brought down into captivity and also unto destruction, both temporally and spiritually, according to the captivity of the devil, of which I have spoken.
217 And it came to pass that when the angel had spoken these words, he said unto me, Remember thou the covenants of the Father unto the house of Israel?
218 I said unto him, Yea.
219 And it came to pass that he said unto me, Look and behold that great and abominable church, which is the mother of abominations, whose founder is the devil.
220 And he said unto me, Behold, there are save two churches only:
221 The one is the church of the Lamb of God, and the other is the church of the devil;
222 Wherefore, whoso belongeth not to the church of the Lamb of God belongeth to that great church, which is the mother of abominations;
223 And she is the whore of all the earth.
224 And it came to pass that I looked and beheld the whore of all the earth, and she sat upon many waters;
225 And she had dominion over all the earth, among all nations, kindreds, tongues and people.
226 And it came to pass that I beheld the church of the Lamb of God, and its numbers were few, because of the wickedness and abominations of the whore who sat upon many waters;
