9 And now Alma began to expound these things unto him, saying: It is given unto many to know the mysteries of God; nevertheless they are laid under a strict command that they shall not impart only according to the portion of his word which he doth grant unto the children of men, according to the heed and diligence which they give unto him.
10 And therefore, he that will harden his heart, the same receiveth the lesser portion of the word; and he that will not harden his heart, to him is given the greater portion of the word, until it is given unto him to know the mysteries of God until he know them in full.
11 And they that will harden their hearts, to them is given the lesser portion of the word until they know nothing concerning his mysteries; and then they are taken captive by the devil, and led by his will down to destruction. Now this is what is meant by the chains of hell.
If you have ever wondered how God could defeat all the minions of Hell and people who reject His Words and Scriptures, this short scripture explains in detail how man decieves himself by disobedience. How could a wicked, secret combination of the great minds of today deceive God? They could not. They could not even deceive a righteous and obedient servant of His Will. As Joshua of old, I and my house we will choose to serve God! There is too much to lose by not following and too much to gain by following. It is not too hard but easy enough for all to achieve His presence for the eternities.
