Passage: Alma 28:16 - Alma 28:26

16 We would not shed the blood of our brethren, if they would not rise up in rebellion and take the sword against us;
17 We would subject ourselves to the yoke of bondage, if it were requisite with the justice of God, or if He should command us so to do.
18 "But behold, He doth not command us that we shall subject ourselves to our enemies, But that we should put our trust in Him and He will deliver us;
19 Therefore, my beloved brother Moroni, let us resist evil; And whatsoever evil we cannot resist with our words- yea, such as rebellions and dissensions- Let us resist them with our swords, that we may retain our freedom, That we may rejoice in the great privilege of our church and in the cause of our Redeemer and our God.
20 "Therefore, come unto me speedily with a few of your men, And leave the remainder in the charge of Lehi and Teancum; Give unto them power to conduct the war in that part of the land, according to the Spirit of God-which is also the spirit of freedom-which is in them;
21 Behold, I have sent a few provisions unto them, that they may not perish until ye can come unto me.
22 "Gather together whatsoever force ye can upon your march hither; And we will go speedily against those dissenters in the strength of our God, according to the faith which is in us,
23 And we will take possession of the City of Zarahemla, that we may obtain more food to send forth unto Lehi and Teancum; Yea, we will go forth against them in the strength of the Lord, And we will put an end to this great iniquity.
24 "And now, Moroni, I do joy in receiving your epistle; For I was somewhat worried concerning what we should do-whether it should be just in us to go against our brethren;
25 But ye have said, 'Except they repent, the Lord hath commanded you that ye should go against them.'
26 "See that ye strengthen Lehi and Teancum in the Lord; Tell them to fear not, for God will deliver them, yea, and also all those who stand fast in that liberty wherewith God hath made them free.
