Welcome to Book of Mormon Central’s Come Follow Me Insights today, the final chapter of the Book of Mormon Moroni 10. This is a real treat, this final chapter, this concluding capstone to the book where Moroni could have taken any any direction he wanted. But he chooses to say, I’m finishing my book. Remember he said farewell to a couple of times in the past and then he’s come back in and written some more. In this one, it feels like he knows this really is the final farewell.
As Moroni finishes the record, he includes letters from his father, Mormon. These letters teach us many things about the nature of Jesus Christ and how we should follow Him. Mormon explains how to judge good from evil and he encourages us to cling to that which is good. Mormon teaches about the light of Christ, which is given to every man to help them to know good from evil. Good things invite us to do good and believe in Jesus Christ. He again reminds us that we must have faith, hope, and charity. Charity is the pure love of Christ.
Moroni 1–6: “To Keep Them in the Right Way”
One of the greatest chapters anywhere in scripture on the power of charity of love is that in Moroni Chapter seven, where Moroni quotes his father, Mormon, who had spoken to the Saints in the church in his day. And there are many beautiful principles in this chapter. I like to focus on one about being peaceable followers of Christ.

The Jaredites had become a wicked and ferocious people. The Lord sent Ether, a prophet, to teach the people and give them a chance to repent. Ether taught the people about hope and faith and exhorted them to believe in God. He prophesied great and marvelous things, but the people wouldn’t believe him. They refused to repent, and that ultimately lead to their destruction.
