During scripture study last night, I came across the following verse in Alma 21:
But he caused that there should beÂ synagoguesÂ built in the land of Ishmael; and he caused that his people, or the people who were under his reign, should assemble themselves together.
Â Previously, I had interpreted this verse to mean that Lamoni had implemented a state-sponsored religion everyone had to join. After reflecting on the maning of the word â€œcaused,â€ Iâ€™m left wondering if he simply implemented infrastructure forÂ worship, but gave everyoneÂ freedomÂ toÂ worshipÂ as they pleased.
