Example text

And] the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness (1 Corinthians 2:14; 3:19; 1 Corinthians 1:17-31). The True Reality of Power 1. True power is infinite. Everyone can have infinite power and thus equal power. The only time you have less power is if you reject power. 2. Power doesn't balance. It grows until the perfect day. 3. Nobody in the business of being enemies can be my friend. There is no true power in allying myself with people who define themselves by hatreds and exclusions.

If so, you must have the courage of your convictions. Remember the exchange of epistles between Ammoron and Moroni; Moroni rejects Ammoron's version of events as false and self-serving, and does not shrink from telling Ammoron exactly where he is headed (Alma 54-55). 7. We must be a nation of our word. No more idle promises. No more signing treaties we have no intention of keeping. Or promising Hungari'ans or Shiites that we will come to their aid when we won't. Or telling Saddam Husseins . there will be consequences for bad behavior when there won't be.

Upon Zerahemnah's refusal to surrender, Moroni actually returns the confiscated weapons to the Lamanites and allows them to continue to fight. When the Lamanites then finally surrendered, Moroni offers precisely the same terms of surrender. His only requirement is that they stop waging war and not come up against the N ephites again. When Amalickiah stirred up the Lamanites again a few years later, again Moroni, through strategy and clever maneuvers, puts the Lamanites to the run. Once they are on the defensive, again Moroni makes his simple offer.
