Neither does he want that we should shed blood

How can we be less complicit to violences occurring in the world?

Are there ways to divest?

This week’s text is taken from Ether 3:92-94 in Community of Christ’s version of the Book of Mormon

“And it came to pass that they formed a secret combination, even as they of old; which combination is most abominable and wicked above all, in the sight of God. For the Lord works not in secret combinations, neither does he will that man should shed blood, but in all things has forbidden it from the beginning of man. Now I, Moroni, do not write the manner of their oaths and combinations, for it has been made known to me that they are had among all people, and they are had among the Lamanites, and they have caused the destruction of this people of whom I am now speaking, and also the destruction of the people of Nephi.”
