Many young people throughout our country are feeling a call to get informed and involved in the fight for freedom. Many who have had zero interest in politics their entire lives are now feeling a nudge, a drive, a need to learn about the Constitution, the principles of freedom, and be a part of something but have been unsure of where to go or how to start. It is likely that you have experienced this yourself and that’s part of why you are here.
What we are all experiencing together is no accident, nothing random but the fulfillment of prophecy and the beginning of a movement, a force in this country that will return this once great land to the Constitutional government upon which is was founded, a nation that respects and upholds the God-given liberty of those who are blessed to live under its banner. This is the beginning of the generation who were prepared and sent to stand for freedom doing what they were sent and called to do.
Ancient and Latter-Day prophets have testified that Heavenly Father would establish upon this land a nation dedicated to freedom, where His children could enjoy their agency and from which the Gospel of His Son could go forth (see 2 Nephi 1:6-7, 10:11, Ether 2:12) and Christ Himself when He visited this land declared, “It is wisdom in the Father that they should be established in this land, and be set up as a free people by the power of the Father…” (3 Nephi 21:4)
These promises remain true and the Lord Himself has said in these Latter-Days,
“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 later in Section 101:
“Therefore, it is not right that any man should be in bondage one to another. 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 101:79-80)
In both of these scriptures, the Lord Jesus Christ puts His seal of approval on the Constitution that He established by wise men who He raised up, our Founding Fathers, and declares that the principles of freedom that guided these men are eternal principles and that our straying from them to more or less government comes of evil. He justifies us in standing for freedom and standing for His inspired Constitution.
Our day is one where the principles of freedom are openly rejected and the inspired Constitution is trampled upon. The forces of evil are on the march to destroy our God-given freedoms. Thankfully, the Lord has given us tools, teachings, and examples so that we can stand for freedom.
In the Book of Mormon, the Nephites were faced with a threat to freedom from within and a group of them responded by taking uponthemsleves the name “Freemen.” We are told that “The freemen had sworn or covenanted to maintain their rights and the privileges of their religion by a free government.” (Alma 51:6) and that through their efforts the freedom of the people was preserved.
We, as Latter-day Freemen, seek to follow their example and preserve our rights for ourselves and for future generations. We too, covenant to maintain our rights and privileges by the free government, the Constitutional government, that God has established upon this land. As we learn the principles of freedom together and study the inspired words of the prophets, the founding fathers, others who taught these eternal principles and begin to act, we too will win.
President Ezra Taft Benson said of the Founding generation and of our generation, “I testify that the God of heaven sent some of his choicest spirits to lay the foundation of this government, and he has sent other choice spirits—even you who read my words this day—to preserve it.”
You are one of those choice spirits. You were called and ordained to this cause. Together we will save our freedom and our free government.
