September 12th Scriptures
Today’s scriptures are from the Doctrine and Covenants. Section 101, versuses 85 to 92:
“85 Thus will I liken the children of Zion.
86 Let them importune at the feet of the judge;
87 And if he heed them not, let them importune at the feet of the governor;
88 And if the governor heed them not, let them importune at the feet of the president;
89 And if the president heed them not, then will the Lord arise and come forth out of his hiding place, and in his fury vex the nation;
90 And in his hot displeasure, and in his fierce anger, in his time, will cut off those wicked, unfaithful, and unjust stewards, and appoint them their portion among hypocrites, and unbelievers;
91 Even in outer darkness, where there is weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth.
92 Pray ye, therefore, that their ears may be opened unto your cries, that I may be merciful unto them, that these things may not come upon them.“
I don’t like to get into politics on my website and blog, but this passage of scripture sums of my feeling of how we should approach situations like today when we are faced with leaders and laws that aren’t very just or that are very oppressive against the people (e.g. mask mandates, vaccine mandates or other types of mandates and laws that are oppressive).
