The Scriptures teach that Jesus Christ and men are of the same order of beings; that men are of the same race with Jesus, of the same nature and essence; that he is indeed our "elder brother."
Also the newly risen Christ said to Mary Magdala as she approached him on the resurrection morning: "Touch me not; for I [am] <have> not yet ascended to my father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; [and] to my God, and your God" (John 20:17). A sweeter statement of the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of the Christ to men may not be found. Hence, while very far removed from us in that the Christ is perfect in all righteousness, and more highly developed in intellectual and spiritual powers than we, yet these differences are of degree, not of kind; so that what is revealed concerning Jesus the Christ may be of infinite helpfulness in throwing light upon the nature of man and the several estates he has occupied and will occupy hereafter.
For the Sheep
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
For the Goats
The TV is my shepherd
I shall want
It makes me to lie down on the sofa
It leads me away from the faith
It destroys my soul
It leads me to the path of sex and violence for the advertisers sake
Yeah though I walk in the shadow of Christian responsibilities
There will be no interruption
For the TV is with me
It's cable and remote control
They comfort me
It prepares a commercial for me in the presence of my worldliness
It annoints my head with humanism and consummerism
My coveting runneth over
Surely laziness and ignorance shall follow me all the days of my life
And I shall dwell in the house watching TV forever.
Today is the historical Sunday, based upon the Spring equinox, when Christ burst the bands of death and resurrected from the grave. It is because of Christ that everyone that has died in this world will be resurrected during the coming millenial day. Because of Christ the grave is a temporary condition. Happy Easter!
This is one of the reasons we should never blaspheme the name of Christ. We should reverently respect him for his gift to us of life. Those that blaspheme their Creator are fools (Psalms 14:1).
...and all this shall stand as a testimony against the world at the last day. And if it so be that they repent and come unto the Father in the name of Jesus, they shall be received into the kingdom of God. And now, if I have no authority for these things, judge ye; for ye shall know that I have authority when ye shall see me, and we shall stand before God at the last day. Amen
"Our history teaches us that when a government is honest and just and virtuous taxes are light. But when a government becomes powerful it is destructive, extravagant, and violent; it is an usurer which takes bread from innocent mouths and deprives honorable men of their substance, for votes with which to perpetuate self."
"There cannot be any conflict between truth revealed from heaven and truth revealed through the research of man; for truth is a unit and never is found in conflict with itself."
"You cannot be a true member of the Church and reject Jesus Christ. You cannot be a faithful member and reject the scriptures - Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price - for these are the standards of our faith. If you accept them you cannot accept organic evolution, for they are diametrically opposed."
-Joseph Fielding Smith
The doctrines of salvation are not discovered in a laboratory or on a geological field trip or by accompanying Darwin around the world. They come by revelation and in no other way.
-Bruce R. McConkie
The name ISRAEL is made up of three names. IS (the Egyptian Isis), RA (the Egyptian Osiris), and EL which means God. The Hebrew language is read from right to left. Read from right to left - God (EL) is male (RA) and female (IS).
This image shows Osiris (God the Father) and Isis (Heavenly Mother) sitting upon their throne together with a solar or celestial disk above their heads.
"We are now entering a period of incredible ironies. Let us site but one of these ironies which is yet in its subtle stages. We will see in our time a maximum effort made to establish irreligion as the state religion. It is actually a new form of Paganism. Which uses the carefully preserved and cultivated freedoms of Western Civilization to shrink freedom. Even as it rejects the value essence of our rich [Christian] heritage."
-Neal A. Maxwell BYU 1978
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint has released a new video depicting Joseph Smith's First Vision.
Television is the Hegelian synthesis between Motion pictures and Radio. Television is used to subliminally indoctrinate the viewer to reject the morality and law that God has given to mankind. It is a psychological tool to de-Christianize the viewer. Organized religion is seen as an obstacle to creating a secular humanist society. A humanist society (Babylonian society) is the only acceptable society for a world controlled by one over-arching government.
Theodor Adorno, a researcher on the effects radio has on the psychology of man stated the real purpose for television in this way:
"All television programming contains, first, an overt message, referring to the plot, characters, scene, etc. It is in this overt content that successful formula are employed to guarantee viewership. But within this overt content, there lies a 'hidden message' that is less obvious, and which represents a particular moral theme for purposes of indoctrination."
They can lead the viewer of television away from their Creator and His laws, but it should be remembered, "none shall be exempted from the justice and the laws of God." (D&C 107:84)
"But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again." To lend, means to borrow, to return what was lent. Then hoping for nothing again.
"Unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land."
"Nature has established all things under the sun a certain term and pitch, when they shall make stay of increase and when they shall be multiplying; the land, if it lacks a jubilee, will in time grow heartless; houses if not repaired will decay; trees will stop bearing and cattle breeding when they grow old. Men's labor and skill will fail with the passing of years. Only the usurer's money doth multiply infinitely. And this is not unnatural?"
-Roger Turner, The Usurer's Plea Answered
"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."
Sol Invictus, the unconquered sun. The Greeks and Romans recognized that God like the sun is unconquerable. God is as absolute as the sun is absolute.
"The sun represents the light and energy of life and consciousness. Not engaged in the field of time - disengaged, absolute. The sun does not carry a shadow in itself. When the sun sets the light sets with the sun. It is not the sun that is in darkness but we who are." J. Campbell
Liberals cannot destroy or conquer God by denying him with their pseudo science and false philosophies. Just like liberals cannot destroy or conquer the sun by denying its existence.
Just like the sun does not carry a shadow in itself when it sets, so God does not carry a shadow in himself. When the sun sets the light sets with the sun. It is not the sun that is in darkness but we who are. So it is with God, when men reject and choose not to believe in his existence, it is not God who is in darkness, but the disbeliever who is.
The religious philosophy of the Democrats is rooted in the Talmud of Judaism. The religious philosophy of the Republicans is rooted in the Bible.
Concerning abortion, this is a quote from Judy Rabinowitz published in The Jewish Voice.
"In Jewish law, an unborn fetus is not considered a person, a Nephesh or a soul until it has been born. Religious zealots who have coined the term Pro-life are really Pro-fetus. Their strategy is to band any type of late term abortion by claiming that it constitutes murder."
However, the bible doesn't agree with this statement and says, "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee." Jeremiah 1:5
The creations of God - the worlds that are and the worlds that have been, - who can grasp in the vision of his mind the truth that there never has been a time when there have not been worlds like this, and that there never will be a time when there will not be worlds organized and prepared for intelligent beings to dwell upon?
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
-William Butler Yeats
"...the Book of revelations...being the foundation of the Church in these last days, and a benefit to the world, showing that the keys of the mysteries of the kingdom of our Savior are again entrusted to man; and the riches of eternity within the compass of those who are willing to live by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God - therefore the conference voted that they prize the revelations to be worth to the Church the riches of the whole earth, speaking temporally. The great benefits to the world which result from the Book of Mormon and the revelations, which the Lord has seen fit to His infinite wisdom to grant unto us for our salvation, and for the salvation of all that will believe."
-Joseph Smith TPJS pg. 7-8
"Behold, he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done and committed against him...who utter with their mouths unbecoming language against God, and speak harsh things of his glory."
-The Book of Enoch
The pot plant or cannabis sativa, produces the longest and strongest fiber for the making of rope, twine and canvas. Canvas is derived from the word cannabis.
In the nineteenth century, most ships were rigged with rope made from this plant. It was an essential part of commerce, from sewing of clothes, sealing of planks and boards, to the making of the canvas that were used for covered wagons.
However, in our day, evil and designing men have misused this plant as a drug. A drug that dulls the mind, destroys the senses, stunts intellectual development and leads to the use of other more potent and destructive narcotics. Which enslaves the user and destroys their lives.
God has warned us at the beginning of this dispensation of the intent of these evil men that would promote the misuse of this plant along with other harmful substances and has warned us not to take into our bodies such substances.
"Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom." D&C 89:4
"I had beheld a vision. I have thought since, that I felt much like Paul, when he made his defense before King Agrippa, and related the account of the vision he had when he saw a light, and heard a voice; but still there were but few who believed him; some said he was dishonest, others said he was mad; and he was ridiculed and reviled. But all this did not destroy the reality of his vision. He had seen a vision, he knew he had, and all the persecution under heaven could not make it otherwise; and though they should persecute him unto death, yet he knew, and would know to his latest breath, that he had both seen a light and heard a voice speaking unto him, and all the world could not make him think or believe otherwise.
So it was with me, I had actually seen a light, and in the midst of that light I saw two Personages, and they did in reality speak to me; and though I was hated and persecuted for saying that I had seen a vision, yet it was true; and while they were persecuting me, reviling me, and speaking all manner of evil against me falsely for so saying, I was led to say in my heart: Why persecute me for telling the truth? I have actually seen a vision; and who am I that I can withstand God, or why does the world think to make me deny what I have actually seen? For I had seen a vision; I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it; at least I knew that by so doing I would offend God, and come under condemnation."
Carl Jung, elucidating upon psychoanalytics, theorizes about archetypes that make up the dream state of our subconscious that causes nightmares and dreams of the dreaming mind. Star Wars is the nightmare manifestation of those archetypes from the subconscious minds of the cryptocracy reflected in film. A conscious regurgitation of their planned future crimes against humanity.
