No Manner of Lasciviousness (that’s lust, my friends) 

So I happened to read this (below) today and thought it was interesting to come across after yesterday’s post.
Also, I think it’s important to say that I’m so GLAD to have a whole bunch of men and women in my life who are like this description of what the Nephite people were like in the years following the Savior’s visit to them. Honest, good people who did not act out of Lasciviousness or other selfish motivations.

4 Nephi 1 SP.

There was no lasciviousness! They would have never needed a #MeToo. Awesome. Sounds like heaven. 

4th Nephi 1 

“15 And it came to pass that there was no contention in the land, because of the love of God which did dwell in the hearts of the people. 16 And there were no envyings, nor strifes, nor tumults, nor whoredoms, nor lyings, nor murders, nor any manner of lasciviousness; and surely there could not be a happier people among all the people who had been created by the hand of God. 17 There were no robbers, nor murderers, neither were there Lamanites, nor any manner of -ites; but they were in one, the children of Christ, and heirs to the kingdom of God. 18 And how blessed were they! For the Lord did bless them in all their doings; yea, even they were blessed and prospered until an hundred and ten years had passed away; and the first generation from Christ had passed away, and there was no contention in all the land.”
