At 03:48 PM 10/5/02 -0600 Marc A. Schindler favored us with:
>Elder Russell M. Nelson's talk -- did you notice his emphasis on how
>Ishmael and Jacob's cooperation following their father's death should
>serve as an example, that their present-day descendants should emerge as
>peacemakers in the region?
>
>What think ye?

I felt that it should throw a bucket of cold water on some of those saints who are in 
favor of a war with Iraq. He said that as a Church we have to remain neutral and our 
members have to obey the laws of the land even if that means fighting in a war.  But 
as individuals we don't have to be so circumspect.  On a personal level we are to 
oppose war and be peacemakers.

I thought Elder Nelson's remarks would put to rest the recent thread on war vs. peace 
with Iraq.  We'll see if anyone was listening.
