What weapons of war do you need to let go of?

How does believing in the Prince of Peace create room for alternatives to emerge to your instinctual “fight” or “flight” responses to conflicts?

This week’s text is taken from Mormon 3:26-28 in CofC version of the Book of Mormon

Know you that you must lay down your weapons of war and delight no more in the shedding of blood, and take them not again save it be that God shall command you. Know you that you must come to the knowledge of your fathers, and repent of all your sins and iniquities, and believe in Jesus Christ, that he is the Son of God, and that he was slain by the Jews and by the power of the Father he has risen again, whereby he has gained the victory over the grave; and also in him is the sting of death swallowed up. And he brings to pass the resurrection of the dead, whereby man must be raised to stand before his judgment seat.”
