Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

The argument of ball, musket, death, and blood

If we can't plainly speak the truth about our religious freedoms we will certainly lose them. We have become concerned that if our speech is not polite we are not following Christ and we therefore often take the stance of appeasing our enemies instead of opposing them. This is a ridiculous stance. We won our religious freedom by the shedding of the blood. If the argument of ball, musket, death, and blood wasn't too impolite for God to approve the war of the revolution and call it his own, could we please stop being afraid to even come out and speak the plain truth, being afraid we will offend God by calling a spade a spade when those freedoms that he inspired righteous men to win by violent warfare are being destroyed before our eyes.
