Begin the lesson by playing two truths and a lie. After the game explain that some people try to teach false doctrine and we need to be like Gideon and stand for the truth.
Let each child decorate a defenders of righteousness badge. As they put on the badge have them repeat “I can stand for the right.”
Read Alma 1:25 and discuss how Gideon and several people with him stood standfast even though they were persecuted. Use the religious freedom puzzles to go through other examples from the scriptures and church history of people who defended religious beliefs and stood for the right. Let the children color the puzzles then cut them out and scramble them up to find the correct matches.
