“Renounce War and Proclaim Peace” – What the Scriptures Say about Armed Conflict
Scriptures on War, Armed Conflict in Scriptures, Scriptural Studies
War is a complex issue – socially, politically, economically, and religiously. However, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are able to rely on clearly articulated doctrines and principles as they seek to formulate their own stance toward armed conflict in general and toward specific wars in particular.
These inspired and inspiring principles issue from the Lord Himself through the standard works and the published words of prophets and apostles in this last dispensation.
