Chapter 1: "Renounce War and Proclaim Peace": Early Beginnings

Keywords

Renounce War, LDS perspectives on War

Abstract

War is a complex issue—socially, politically, economically, and religiously. However, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can rely on clearly articulated doctrines and principles as they seek to formulate their own stance on armed conflict in general and on 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
