Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Learn from the Past

                The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday is the simple fact that we can learn much from previous generations that could save our society from total destruction.  History is full of examples of societies rising and falling.  We should learn what caused them to rise and why they fell.  This information could be very helpful to us.  We can learn about two societies that rose and fell on the American continent by reading the Book of Mormon – Another Testament of Jesus Christ.  This book tells in plain language what the good leaders did to preserve their nations and how evil caused their destructions.

                Greg Trimble wrote an interesting article titled, “Dear Politicians… Here’s Why You Should Read the Book of Mormon.”  He admits that the name of his article is “weird” and has “some stigmas associated with it” but asks politicians to “please give the Book of Mormon a quick read.” 

                “The Book of Mormon is not a novel.  It’s a history book compiled by a string of prophets, politicians, and historians who lived on this continent long before we did.  It’s the only book I know of that has so accurately depicted what we are watching unfold right before our eyes today.  This book is like a field manual for leaders of nations.  It lays out in perfect detail how to avoid complete collapse and destruction.  This book was written for us in our day.  You can learn from the leaders in this book who faced the same problems many years back.”
