Alma 54:21 - 54:24

Alma 54: 21 And as concerning that God whom ye say we have rejected, behold, we know not such a being; neither do ye; but if it so be that there is such a being, we know not but that he hath made us as well as you.

Ammoron states that the God he is accused of rejecting is something he know nothing about and accuses Moroni of not knowing either for that matter. In addition, if such a God existed then the Lamanites were made by this God as well.

Alma 54: 22 And if it so be that there is a devil and a hell, behold will he not send you there to dwell with my brother whom ye have murdered, whom ye have hinted that he hath gone to such a place? But behold these things matter not.

And if hell exists as Moroni has said, then Moroni will go there as a murder of Amalickiah which Moroni has said murders will go. But these are points of no concern to Ammoron. They don’t matter to him.

Alma 54: 23 I am Ammoron, and a descendant of Zoram, whom your fathers pressed and brought out of Jerusalem.

What is important is that Ammoron is a descendent of Zoram, whom he accuses Nephi of forcing him to go with the family to the promised land against his will.

Alma 54: 24 And behold now, I am a bold Lamanite; behold, this war hath been waged to avenge their wrongs, and to maintain and to obtain their rights to the government; and I close my epistle to Moroni.

Ammoron calls himself a bold Lamanite which means it is his desire to gain their rightful place as the leaders of both Lamanite and Nephite peoples. Ammoron closes his letter to Moroni.
