Abstract

The Book of Mormon testifies of the great mission of America. America is a beacon of liberty to all the world. It is the Lord’s base of operations. Church members must protect it from its greatest threat—moral decay from within—and we “must return to a love and respect for the basic spiritual concepts upon which this nation has been established.”
