and I make not myself known to the Lamanites lest they should destroy me.

For behold, their wars are exceedingly fierce among themselves; and because of their hatred they put to death every Nephite that will not deny the Christ.

And I, Moroni, will not deny the Christ; wherefore, I wander whithersoever I can for the safety of mine own life.

Moroni 1:1-3

The story behind And I Will Not Deny The Christ

Following His resurrection in Jerusalem, the Lord Jesus Christ appeared in the Americas to descendants of Joseph, the son of Jacob.  Those descendants of ancient Israel accepted the teachings and the presence of the Savior.  For two centuries they were taught from On High and dwelt in peace and beauty.  Nevertheless, they fell into darkness, and in the 3rd century anno Domini, the people divided themselves so that the true followers of Christ were eventually compelled to take up arms to defend their religion, their freedom, their peace, their wives, and their children.

War and wickedness engulfed the land until a great and terrible battle swept the fallen remnants of the Lord’s disciples entirely from the earth in the 4th century; all, that is, save one, who lived to write the story’s end.  For more than 30 years that solitary and faithful disciple was hunted by those who had destroyed his people, killed his kindred and his prophet father, and sworn to destroy every splinter of the light that once had bathed the land.  His name was Moroni, and this is a painting of his enduring devotion.  The title for the painting is derived from the words of Moroni found in the Book of Mormon, Moroni 1:3.

Curatorial Details

The panel is Masonite.  Several gesso layers were applied directly to the panel.  Oil paints used in the creation of this painting include Old-Holland Classic Oil Colours (Driebergen, Holland) as well as Rembrandt colors manufactured by Royal Talens, P.O. Box 4, Apeldoorn, Holland.  Other oil colors used in the fabrication of the painting, as well as Walnut Alkyd Medium, were manufactured by M. Graham & Co., West Linn, Oregon 97068 USA.

The frame for the painting was created by Ashton Young in the studios at BenHaven in the fall of 2006.
