About Us

LDS Liberty was made by liberty loving members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and is dedicated to advancing the principle of liberty in light of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

President John Taylor stated:

Besides the preaching of the gospel, we have another mission, namely, the perpetuation of the free agency of man and the maintenance of liberty, freedom, and the rights of man. (JD, vol. 28, p. 63).

At LDS Liberty we see the “preaching of the gospel” and the “perpetuation of the free agency of man and the maintenance of liberty, freedom, and the rights of man” as the same thing. All missionary work presupposes free agency, liberty, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness in connection with our rights — for God will force no man to heaven. Missionary work presupposes persuasion, gentleness, meekness, love unfeigned, kindness, and pure knowledge through a witness of the Holy Ghost (D&C 121:41–43).

Since 2008, LDS Liberty has maintained a reputation as a defender of the rights and liberties of all mankind, as we have also sought to promote the principles and ideals of good and proper political government.

In 2015, LDS Liberty reached its third evolution — LDS Liberty 3.0 — where we turned yet another corner and expanded our discussions of liberty and freedom beyond the mere political. We most often speak of liberty and freedom in terms of political government, but these are not political words. These words carry meanings that are tied to our very identity and humanity — that special identity that God gave us as His literal spiritual children.

In moving the LDS Liberty project forward, we are excited to expand the limited definitions and understanding of liberty and freedom beyond political discussions (although we will still have those) to include the entirety of our human existence as children of God. We will embark into unknown territories, as we seek to create the best content pertaining to liberty, freedom, and our relationships with Jesus Christ that will increase and broaden the knowledge of our identities as children of God to unleash our earthly potential as His offspring.

Any views expressed in or from this website, despite their firm foundation in doctrine and logic, are not to be taken as the official position of the Church nor of Church authorities — even when we are spot on.
