Two bizarre concepts enter the dogma game in the Book of Alma; neither of which is spoken of much…

First: Obedience results in wealth.

“And thus they did prosper and become far more wealthy than those who did not belong to their church.”

~Alma 1:31~

…and secondly: Deteriorating health results from wickedness.

“[A]nd Zeezrom lay sick at Sidom, with a burning fever, which was caused by the great tribulations of his mind on account of his wickedness…exceedingly sore because of his iniquities.”

~Alma 15:3, 5~

The former is more prevalent than the later, but have you ever heard the church preach that ill health/disease results from unrighteousness (aside from AIDS)?
