As spoken by the Prophet Joseph Smith, there will come a day when the Constitution hangs by a thread. He also foresaw that it would not be destroyed but that the latter-day Saints would step forward and save it. Many members of the Church believe a day will come when Church Authorities signal that it is time to go to work and save this divine document.
However, the prophets and apostles have been warning us of efforts to destroy our liberty for years, and we have not heeded them. Day by day, wicked and conspiring men seek to subvert our freedom for power and gain. It seems that with each generation, more and more young people are falling prey to these cancerous ideologies which contradict the words of the Lord and His prophets. Many good people are confused about the proper role of government, not knowing that the prophets and apostles have spoken many times on this subject and what we should do as members of God’s Church.
The Beginning of Latter-day Freemen
A group of latter-day Saints recognized this problem and felt compelled to do something about it because the Lord has explicitly stated that He does not “command in all things” and that we should be “anxiously engaged” in good causes to bring about righteousness. (D&C 58:26-27)
In the Book of Mormon, a group of individuals stepped forward to defend their liberty when it was threatened. These brave men (and women) stood up when it would have been more convenient to lie down and “go with the flow.” In the Book of Mormon we read that they had “sworn or covenanted to maintain their rights and the privileges of their religion by a free government.” (Alma 51:6)
To honor these individuals and carry on the work of restoring, defending, and promoting liberty, we took upon ourselves the name Latter-day Freemen. However, because we are not at war as the freemen were, we promote this cause through non-violence and advocacy.
Who We Are
We are a group of latter-day Saint men and women of the rising generations who are united in our commitment to restoring, defending, and promoting liberty as taught by the scriptures, the founders, inspired thinkers, and modern prophets and apostles.
While we draw upon teachings from the scriptures and modern prophets, the Latter-day Freemen site is not affiliated with nor does it represent the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If the prophet and united voice of the Twelve say anything that contradicts anything on this site, we believe that such counsel should be heeded.
The Latter-day Freemen exist to restore a culture of liberty and independence through:
- Inspiring individuals to their duty to defend freedom and live righteously
- Educating individuals on the principles of free government and righteous living
- Empowering individuals to stand up for freedom, especially religious freedom.
We educate individuals about liberty and free government by focusing on the principles that President Ezra Taft Benson said made America free and prosperous, what we call the 4 Pillars of America:
- Individual Liberty
- Individual Morality
- Limited Government
- Free Markets
We teach these principles through the words of ancient and modern prophets as well as inspired defenders of liberty such as the American Founding Fathers and Frederic Bastiat. Having an understanding of these principles however, is not enough to restore a culture of liberty. We also seek to empower individuals to action to do their part in defending and promoting liberty, especially religious liberty.
