Short note on the great wars in the book of Mormon

It’s surprising that people can look around at the precarious position our religious freedom is in, and still feel confused about why so much of the Book of Mormon is devoted to the great wars. The great wars were the Nephites defending their freedoms. The great wars demonstrate the effort, deception, and genius that wicked men will put forth to destroy our freedom, and the effort and inspiration that will be required to come off victorious against them. But the inspiration and divine protection only comes for righteous effort. We cannot sit upon our thrones in a state of thoughtless stupor while our enemies are spreading this work around us, and yet still hope to come off the victors.
