And if they will not repent and believe in his name, and be baptized in his name, and endure to the end, they must be damned; for the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, has spoken it. (2 Ne 9:24) I was thinking about the use of the word ‘damned’ this morning. Until this morning, I always viewed the usage of this word to mean that one’s eternal progression would be stopped. However, in the real sense of a damn, the progression of water is not stopped, but simply hindered and then controlled. I wonder if Jacob had this in mind when he used the analogy.
