2 Nephi 1:1; “And now it came to pass that after I, Nephi, had made an end of teaching my brethren, our father, Lehi, also spake many things unto them, and rehearsed unto them, how great things the Lord had done for them in bringing them out of the land of Jerusalem.”
Matthew 6:7; “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.”
Twenty percent of the 6,604 verses in Book of Mormon contain the phrase “and it came to pass”. They are merely filler words used in the deceitful practice of brain washing the Mormon people. Repetitive words and phrases have the ability to self-hypnotize.
