Marc A. Schindler favored us with:
There's an interesting matter of interpretation here. Is "while" a conditional
term here, or is it merely setting up the other party's side of the covenant? And
if one party breaks the covenant, is the other party free to break it as well?
Obviously yes because we know from the Doctrine and Covenants that the Founding Fathers of the United States were inspired men raised up by God to rebel against Britain. How do we reconcile that fact with the Twelfth Article of faith? This is how I make the reconciliation. Rebel against constituted authority but only when commanded by God to do so.

At present, the Book of Mormon is studied in our Sunday
School and seminary classes every fourth year. This
four-year pattern, however, must not be followed by
Church members in their personal and family study. We
need to read daily from the pages of the book that will get
a man "nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by
any other book." (Ezra Taft Benson, October 1988)
All my opinions are tentative pending further data. --JWR
