"Touch Me Not, for God shall smite you..."

May we all have the Faith of Abinadi, whose one and only Convert, Alma, brought many others and his posterity and many more converts to the Gospel of Christ.  Read part of his testimony below:

When Abinadi testified of the truth, "they stood forth and attempted to lay their hands on him; but he withstood them, and said unto them:

Touch me not, for God shall smite you if ye lay your hands upon me, for I have not delivered the message which the Lord sent me to deliver; neither have I told you that which ye requested that I should tell; therefore, God will not suffer that I shall be destroyed at this time." (Mosiah 13:2-3)

Abinadi later testified of Christ many many times, including the following:

"He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death."

Later Abinadi gave his life for this gospel of Jesus Christ.
