Why are all these wars in the Book of Mormon? John Bytheway shows that every one of the “war chapters” have spiritual lessons. When the children of Lehi are successful, it’s because they make covenants first and swords later. They pray mightily for help from God; then they go to work and fortify their cities. They fail only when they allow themselves to be enticed, decoyed, and distracted from what they should have been doing. Brother Bytheway shows that the stratagems of warfare are frighteningly similar to the stratagems Satan uses to ensnare God’s children today. This talk is an abridged version of the best-selling book, Righteous Warriors: Lessons from the War Chapters in the Book of Mormon.
