“And it came to pass that Moroni was angry with the government, because of their indifference concerning the freedom of their country.” (Alma 59:13) This verse defines our current Governor, Lt. Governor, State School Superintendent and local and State School Boards. The boards, I’ve noticed, certainly like to stand and say the pledge to the flag, but do they act upon the principles of freedom? Do they walk the walk? Not even close.
“Behold, could ye suppose that ye could sit upon your thrones, and because of the exceeding goodness of God ye could do nothing and he would deliver you? Behold, if ye have supposed this ye have supposed in vain.” (Moroni’s letter to his governor, Alma 60:11 in the Book of Mormon) This reminds me of the majority of the people I know, who naiively think it’s acceptable to just say “I’m not political,” and that by just saying prayers and not getting involved with local and national issues that affect our actual freedoms, we’ll be fine. All is well, all is well? No. All is not well in America. Moroni would be doing more for his country than just saying prayers and going to church, and so should we.
