Newsroom for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints The Church always has a spokesman who advocates this issue for the Church above and beyond the whole body of the Apostles; Hugh B. Brown David O. McKay, Ezra Taft Benson, and for many years now Dallin H. Oaks has been an advocate with a reasoned and inspired voice about this.
Constitution SALT LAKE CITY | 17 September 2010 | An apostle for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said today the United States Constitution is a singular document whose fundamental principles must be understood, valued and protected. Elder Dallin H. Oaks made the remarks in his keynote address at the Constitution Day Celebration held in the Tabernacle on Temple Square. The event was presented by the University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics and America’s Freedom Alliance
We will find many opportunities to correct the worlds views of these issues of governance, as well as Man’s origins. Man is made in the image of God and certainly will benefit from God’s laws being used in his government. I am thankful to have been found by Philip R Westerlund and taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the restored Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints during the bi-Centennial year of the US Declaration of Independence. I am also thankful for the Potts Family I married into who have continuously loved and helped me to learn Gospel Principles and a better way to live FREE.
Statement of Erastus Snow (Apostle):
We were told by the prophet Joseph Smith, that the United States Government and people would undermine one principle of the Constitution after another, until its whole fabric would be torn away, and that it would become the duty of the Latter-day Saints and those in sympathy with them to rescue it from destruction, and to maintain and sustain the principles of human freedom for which our fathers fought and bled. We look for these things to come in quick succession.
