Book of Mormon Class, Lesson #39

Powerful Promises of the Book of Mormon
Mosiah Chapter 29
Among other things, this chapter is a major document on how to set up  
righteous civil governments for the fair and proper governing of all  
the citizens of a nation.
Read Doctrine and Covenants 134:12
As he nears the end of his life, King Mosiah gives a clear and  
masterful explanation to his people of how such a government must be  
established.  He recommended that they:
1.  No longer have kings
2.  He emphasizes citizen involvement in running the country
3.  The vital role of free elections
4.  Responsibilities of citizens to elect leaders whose lives reflect  
respect for God's laws
"There is no power that can wreck the government that God has  
established in this country unless it be the people themselves."
Anthony Ivins (Ensign October 1982)
