Dear Latter-Day Saints:
Please do not take this the wrong way. I am not saying we do not need to be involved in politics or the armed forces. I am not saying that U.S. Intelligence Operations are useless. I am simply saying that this is what we, the common citizens can do right now about the ISIS terrorist problem. Here is the 3 part simple solution to the ISIS problem, and every other problem that will come up:
1) Spread the Gospel of the church run by Jesus Christ:
“We are commanded by God to take this gospel to all the world. That is the cause that must unite us today. Only the gospel will save the world from the calamity of its own self-destruction. Only the gospel will unite men of all races and nationalities in peace. Only the gospel will bring joy, happiness, and salvation to the human family.” (Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1988, p. 167.)
2) The family and the home are the solution. The Proclamation to the Family has guidelines. Here are some additional good ones:
3) Keep the Commandments of God.
Mosiah 2:31 (King Benjamin speaking)
“……if ye shall keep…the commandments of God which shall be delivered unto you [by the Prophet], ye shall prosper in the land, and your enemies shall have no power over you.”
