While reading the Book of Mormon last night, I came across Mosiah 28:4, which said in part that the sons of Mosiah “were the very vilest of sinners”. I thought this was interesting, and it made me wonder a few things. Is Mormon speaking relatively here (they were the vilest when compared to all the sinners among the Nephites)? Is he speaking absolutely (no other sinner previous to them in all the world had been as vile as they)? Was Mormon suggesting it was their sins that were the vilest (convincing others to leave the church) and not that the extent to which they committed them was the vilest?
