06) STEWARDSHIP: Is the right to the use and control of property scriptural? What is the importance of stewardship?

Prophetic Statements

David O. McKay

Today, we are in danger of actually surrendering our personal and property rights. This development, if it does occur in full form, will be a sad tragedy for our people. We must recognize that property rights are essential to human liberty. 1

Scriptures

D&C 134:2

We believe that no government can exist in peace, except such laws are framed and held inviolate as will secure to each individual the free exercise of conscience, the right and control of property, and the protection of life.

  1. David O. McKay, Conference Report, October 1962
