Alma 54

Ammoron suggests in his letter regarding prisoner exchange that the Lamanites had the right to govern. No one really has the "right" to govern others. Even God only asks that we surrender our will to him. He doesn't demand the right the govern our lives. He only asks that we voluntarily submit to his commandments and love him. So, when the framers of our government worked on our system, they believed that God was the true Sovereign and that our rights were given to us by him.
