Alma 51

(April 27, 2014)
We see war throughout the Book of Mormon (and other scriptures), but I don’t know of any place where the scriptures command or commend armed insurrection against the lawful government (although I admit I could be missing something).  It seems like, when force is justified, it is justified in putting down an insurrection or dealing with foreign invaders, but not fighting against a government (regardless of how wicked).  The closest I can think of would be Gideon’s actions against Noah.
