Even this nation will be on the verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground and when the Constitution is on the brink of ruin this people will be the staff upon which the nation shall lean and they shall bear the Constitution away from the very verge of destruction. (Joseph Smith papers LDS Church Historical Archives Box 1, March 10, 1844)
And for this purpose have I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood. (D&C 101:80)
And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land; And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil. (D&C 98:5–7)
And Whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations to get power and gain…shall be destroyed. Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you that…ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you…even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you…if ye shall suffer these things to be. Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you…that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation…For…whosoever buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries… Wherefore, I, Moroni , am commanded to write these things… (Ether 8:22–26)
And behold, in the end of this book, (The Book of Mormon), ye shall see that this Gadianton did prove the overthrow, yea, almost the entire destruction of the people of Nephi. (Helaman 2:13)
And they, (the secret combinations of the Jaredites), have caused the destruction of this people of whom I am speaking, and also the destruction of the people of Nephi. (Ether 8:21)
Satan is making war against…the very foundations upon which society, government, and religion rest…He plans to destroy freedom–economic, political, and religious, and to set up in place thereof the greatest, most widespread, and most complete tyranny that has ever oppressed men. He is working under such perfect disguise that many do not recognize either him or his methods…He comes as a thief in the night; he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Without their knowing it, the people are being urged down paths that lead only to destruction… (First Presidency Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark Jr., David O. McKay, Conference Report, October 1942, p. 14)
I testify that wickedness is rapidly expanding in every segment of our society. It is more highly organized, more cleverly disguised, and more powerfully promoted than ever before. Secret combinations lusting for power, gain, and glory are flourishing. A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world. (I Testify by President Ezra Taft Benson, October Conference, LDS Church, reported in Nov. Ensign, 1988, p. 87)
The biggest problem facing America today is that no one looks to freedom as a solution to problems anymore. They look to government. (Glenn Kimber, founder of Kimber Academy , son-in-law of W. Cleon Skousen)
Except the spirit of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and principles contained within the Constitution of the United States are inherent in world plans now being formulated, they are but building on sand and the Lord is not in that building. [Comment: This was said in 1945 when the United Nations was being established.] (Youth and the Church by Harold B. Lee, Deseret Book Company, 1970, p. 220)
Unless the spirit of Christianity permeate the deliberations of the United Nations, dire tragedies await humanity. (Gospel Ideals, by David O. McKay, p. 275)
…He (Satan) is right in the system. In fact, the system is his. That’s how he is able to form secret combinations of murder…that fill the world today. Remember, he told us when he lost his temper what he was going to do. He was going to take money and buy up the power and rule in a horrible way upon this earth, and that’s what he has done…He says, “You can have anything in this world for money, and I’m the one that has it.”…That’s what he says…buy up the authority, the power, kings and presidents, armies and navies, and he will rule that way…Consider the elections. What wins elections now? Every expert will tell us it’s money. (Teachings of the Book of Mormon, by Hugh Nibley, Semester 1, p.294-295)
Satan has control now. No matter where you look, he is in control, even in our own land. He is guiding the governments as far as the Lord will permit him. That is why there is so much strife, turmoil, confusion all over the earth. One master mind is governing the nations. It is not the President of the United States …it is not the king or government of England or any other land; it is Satan himself. (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, Vol. 3, pp. 314-315)
Our great Constitution has been beaten and torn until now it hangs by a single thread, and that thread is our franchise to vote. (Ezra Taft Benson, 1976, Freeman Institute, Provo, Utah)
¼ to vote for wicked men, it would be sin. (Hyrum Smith, Documentary History of the Church, vol. 6, p. 323)
The function of government is to protect life, liberty, and property, and anything more or less than this is usurpation and oppression. (Ezra Taft Benson, Conference Report, April 1968)
No greater immediate responsibility rests upon members of the Church, than to protect the freedom vouchsafed by the Constitution of the United States . (President David O. Mckay, Conference Report, April 1950)
We honor our founding fathers of this republic…God raised up these patriotic partners to perform their mission, and He called them “wise men.” (D&C 101:80) The First Presidency acknowledged that wisdom when they gave us the guideline a few years ago of supporting political candidates “who are truly dedicated to the Constitution in the tradition of our Founding Fathers.”(Deseret News, 11/2/64)…Another guideline given by the First Presidency was “to support good and conscientious candidates, of either party, who are aware of the great dangers” facing the free world. (Deseret News, 11/2/ 1964, Civic Standards for the Faithful Saints by Ezra T. Benson, Conference, 4/6/72)
Another guideline given by the First Presidency was “to support good and conscientious candidates, of either party, who are aware of the great dangers” facing the free world. (Deseret News, 11/2/ 1964) (Civic Standards for the Faithful Saints by Ezra Taft Benson, Gen. Conference, 4/6/72)
Unless we as citizens of the nation forsake our sins, political and otherwise, and return to the fundamental principles of Christianity and constitutional government, we will lose our political liberties, our free institutions, and will stand in jeopardy before God of losing our exaltation. (Ezra Taft Benson,“The ConstitutionA Glorious Standard,” Ensign, May 1976, p.91)
…(A) neutralizer that the devil (uses) most effectively…is simply this: “Don’t do anything in the fight for freedom until the Church sets up its own program to save the Constitution.”…Maybe the Lord will never set up a specific Church program for the purpose of saving the Constitution. Perhaps if he set up one at this time it might split the Church asunder, and perhaps he does not want that to happen yet, for not all the wheat and tares are fully ripe. The Prophet Joseph Smith declared it will be the elders of Israel who will step forward to help save the Constitution, not the Church! (Ezra Taft Benson, Conference Report, April 1965)
Most of the major ills of the world have been caused by well-meaning people who ignored the principle of individual freedom, except as applied to themselves, and who were obsessed with fanatical zeal to improve the lot of mankind-in-the-mass through some pet formula of their own…The harm done by ordinary criminals, murderers, gangsters, and thieves is negligible in comparison with the agony inflicted upon human beings by the professional ‘do-gooders,’who attempt to set themselves up as gods and who would ruthlessly force their views on all others with the abiding assurance that the end justifies the means. (Ezra T. Benson, quotes Henry G. Weaver, An Enemy Hath Done This, p. 140)
It is high time we realized the dangerous threat to America of creeping socialism as the ruthless comrade to atheistic communism…Krushchev is reported to have said: “We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have communism.”…I believe in all seriousness that socialism paves the way for communism. (The Red Carpet by Ezra Taft Benson, 1962, p. 65-83)
I am not here to tickle your ears…The message I bring is not a happy one, but it is the truth. And time is always on the side of truth. As the German philosopher Goethe said: “Truth must be repeated again and again, because error is constantly being preached round about.”…As a people, we love sweetness and light, especially sweetness. Ralph Waldo Emerson said that “Every mind must make a choice between truth and repose. Those who will learn nothing from history are condemned to repeat it.”…George Washington stated:“Truth will ultimately prevail, where there are pains taken to bring it to light.” To bring the truth to light is our challenge…“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (Ezra Taft Benson, Stand Up For Freedom, 1965)
Today, we are in danger of actually surrendering our personal and property rights. This development, if it does occur in full term, will be a sad tragedy for our people. We must recognize that property rights are essential to human liberty. (President David O. McKay, Conference Report, October 1962)
The Rothschild family, who now hold the purse strings of the world, might be the instrument in the hands of God for the accomplishment of wonderful things in regard to Jerusalem . They already control the nations of the earth because of the wealth they possess. It is claimed that they can prevent war at any time if they will but shut up their coffers and prevent the outflow of gold, which is necessary to the carrying on of war. (Collected Discourses, by Abraham H. Cannon, Vol 5, October 6, 1895)
Satan’s kingdom is composed of all that is evil and corrupt and carnal and wicked no matter where it is found. He operates through what we call churches, and he operates through what we call governments. Both are part of his kingdom. And in the days ahead, the fall of the one will be the fall of the other. When Babylon falls, she will take with her the churches of the world and the nations of the world. (Bruce R. McConkie, The Millennial Messiah, pp. 493-494)
It is true the Prophet saw even the Constitution hanging by a thread, but, thank the Lord, he never saw the thread break. He saw this people play a conspicuous part to be a balance of power with others to preserve it. For after all, it is destined, according to the word of the Lord, to become the savior and blessing of all flesh, not only the peoples of the United States . And after the experiments with dictatorships and other methods, they will, at last, when they have learned their lesson and are prepared for it, be willing to receive the Lord’s offering, after much suffering. (Melvin J. Ballard, CR-10/38:106)
