Joseph Smith on the Effects of Apostasy n “There is a superior intelligence bestowed upon such as obey the Gospel with full purpose of heart, which, if sinned against, the apostate is left naked and destitute of the Spirit of God…. When once that light which was in them is taken from them they become as much darkened as they were previously enlightened, and then, no marvel, if all their power should be enlisted against the truth, and they, Judas- like, seek the destruction of those who were their greatest benefactors. n History of the Church, vol. 2, p. 23

President Gordon B. Hinckley on War “I believe that God will not hold men and women in uniform responsible as agents of their government in carrying forward that which they are legally obligated to do. It may even be that He will hold us responsible if we try to impede or hedge up the way of those who are involved in a contest with forces of evil and repression .” President Gordon B. Hinckley, “War and Peace,” Ensign , May 2003

The Church website on War: n If Latter-day Saints are called upon to go into battle, they can look to the example of Captain Moroni , the great military leader in the Book of Mormon. Although he was a mighty warrior, he “ did not delight in bloodshed ” (Alma 48: 11). He was “ firm in the faith of Christ ,” and his only reason for fighting was to “ defend his people, his rights, and his country, and his religion ” (Alma 48:13). If Latter-day Saints must go to war, they should go in a spirit of truth and righteousness, with a desire to do good. They should go with love in their hearts for all God’s children, including those on the opposing side. Then, if they are required to shed another’s blood, their action will not be counted as a sin.
