3 Nephi 7

(November 23, 2015)
                Let’s face it – tribalism is already happening.  Rather than breaking apart as a society into families, we are breaking apart as a society into ideological groups, identity groups, or political groups.  Regardless of what we call it, though, it is still tribalism.

                The frightening thing, of course, is the clear indication that tribalism leads to unrighteousness.  And it is no wonder why that is – once we break apart into tribes we create excuses for being uncharitable and we establish sacred beliefs outside of the revelatory process.  We think that we are right on everything, and things that differ (including the Lord) should be ignored or attacked.
