"All well established and properly organized governments have certain fixed and prominent laws for the regulation and management of the same. If man has grown to wisdom and is capable of discerning the propriety of laws to govern nations, what less can be expected from the Ruler and Upholder of the universe? Can we suppose that He has a kingdom without laws? Or do we believe that it is composed of an innumerable company of beings who are entirely beyond all law? Consequently have need of nothing to govern or regulate them? Would not such ideas be a reproach to our Great Parent, and at variance with His glorious intelligence? Would it not be asserting that man had found out a secret beyond Deity? That he had learned that it was good to have laws, while God after existing from eternity and having power to create man, had not found out that it was proper to have laws for His government? We admit that God is the great source and fountain from whence proceeds all good; that He is perfect intelligence, and that His wisdom is alone sufficient to govern and regulate the mighty creations and worlds which shine and blaze with such magnificence and splendor over our heads, as though touched with His finger and moved by His Almighty word. And if so, it is done and regulated by law; for without law all must certainly fall into chaos. If, then, we admit that God is the source of all wisdom and understanding, we must admit that by His direct inspiration He has taught man that law is necessary in order to govern and regulate His own immediate interest and welfare; for this reason, that law is beneficial to promote peace and happiness among man. And as before remarked, God is the source from whence proceeds all good; and if man is benefited by law, then certainly, law is good; and if law is good, then law, or the principle of it emanated from God; for God is the source of all good; consequently, then, he was the first Author of law, or the principle of it, to mankind."
"The wicked shall mourn. For behold, and lo, vengeance cometh speedily upon the ungodly as the whirlwind; and who shall escape it?
The Lord's scourge shall pass over by night and by day, and the report thereof shall vex all people; yea, it shall not be stayed until the Lord come;
For the indignation of the Lord is kindled against their abominations and all their wicked works."
I will visit them "according to all her works, with sore affliction, with pestilence, with plague, with sword, with vengeance, with devouring fire."
"The American system was indeed glorious in its beginning, and was founded by wise and good men, in opposition to long established abuses and oppressive systems of the Old World. But it had its weaknesses and imperfections. These were taken advantage of by wicked and conspiring men, who were unwisely placed at the head of government, and who, by a loose and corrupt administration, gradually undermined that beautiful structure. In their polluted hands justice faltered, truth fell to the ground, equity could not enter, and virtue fled into the wilderness."
-Parley P. Pratt
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.
Usury is a crime against God and man. Usury the charging of interest on debt is a crime against God because it frustrates and destroys the "plan of happiness" that God intends for his creation. Usury destroys the patriarchal order of the family. It compels and demands that mother's work. Usury destroys the family that God set up from the beginning as his means of populating this earth. It divides male and female and scatters their offspring.
Usury is a crime against man because it eats up his substance. Usury robs the man of the fruit of his labors leaving him empty. Usury demands that he not marry or have children. Usury keeps the man from fulfilling the measure of his creation and destroys his soul.
Those that practice Usury against God and against their fellow man are they who "do wickedly" and Usurers will be "as stubble" and "the day cometh that they must be burned." 1 Nephi 22:15
The Western Hemisphere is a "land of promise." It is "choice above all other lands." It is "preserved for a righteous people." God has "sworn in his wrath" to the prophets of old, "that whoso should possess this land of promise, from that time henceforth and forever, should serve him, the true and living God, or they should be swept off when the fullness of his wrath should come upon them."
"For behold, this is a land which is choice above all other lands; wherefore he that doth possess it shall serve God or shall be swept off, for it is the everlasting decree of God. And it is not until the fullness of iniquity among the children of the land, that they are swept off."
"Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ."
"It is not a human monarchy, for man-made kings are tyrant. It is not an aristocracy, for in that case the few trample upon the rights of the many. It is not a democracy, for mobs composed of the mass, with no stronger power to check them, are the greatest tyrants and oppressors in the world. But it is a theocracy, where the great Eloheim, Jehovah, holds the superior honor. He selects the officers. He reveals and appoints the laws, and He counsels, reproves, directs, guides and holds the reins of government."
-Parley P. Pratt
"Almost all people of all eras are hypnotics. Their beliefs are induced beliefs. The proper authority saw to it that the proper beliefs should be induced and people believed properly."
"The conduct of the 'unjust judge' towards the 'poor widow' might raise the blush of shame upon our national cheek, if the nation possessed as fine sensibilities and as much discernment as that 'unjust judge.' He saw that his own peace, ease, and happiness depended upon his avenging the 'poor widow.' And if the peace, ease, and happiness of these United States, in future, do not depend upon their redressing 'Mormon' wrongs, (though they may not fear God, neither regard man,) then the lord does not speak by me. The nation will soon find out whether 'wrath and indignation come upon the people in the shape of earthquakes, thunderings, and lightnings, tempests, -the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds; and all things being in commotion, while fear comes upon all people.' The nations may have occasion to consider the treasures of hail and snow reserved for the last days- even the day of battle for the controversy of Zion. They may yet learn that the nation and kingdom that will not serve Zion shall perish; yea, that such nations shall be utterly wasted."
-Orson Hyde JD 6:49
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects shall not be violated."
Jurassic Park are films that condition the viewers mind to believe that man is inferior to nature and promotes atheism. The producers of the films intend to condition the mass mind into believing that they are minuscule microbes on the globe of creation that are to be chewed up and spit out by nature. These anti-God films are in defiance to the revealed knowledge that God has imparted to his children, that man is the crowning achievement of all creation. The films lack enlightened intellectual contributions and should be properly named Jurassic Dark. The films leave the viewers in a bewildered darkened state of disillusionment about who they are as the offspring of God.
The theory of evolution invites man apparently to partake of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, but in effect it debars him from coming to the Tree of Life.
-Joseph Fielding Smith
"Brigham Young is recognized the world over as a man who rendered high service to his generation. Generally he is looked upon as a mighty leader of men and the world's foremost colonizer. More careful students of his life and labors hold him also to be a master in religious philosophy. All admit, whether friend or foe, that he belongs among the world's greatest men."
-John A. Widtsoe
"That Being who dwelt in Heaven, who reigned there before the world was, who created the earth, and who, in the meridian of time, came down to perfect and save that which He had created, has appeared to men in this age."
"No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law."
"How helpless is man without the guidance of the Lord! How foolish are his thoughts! Without divine inspiration man falls into the pit and is taken in the snare. All his ways are darkness, and he is confounded and put to shame."
-Joseph Fielding Smith
Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment; and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."
"Actresses demand same pay as men." Americans have become so blind to what communism is that they don't see it right before their eyes.
Bolsheviks that follow the doctrine of Karl Marx have always demanded that women rebel against their divine role as mothers and leave the home and become workers. Modern-day Bolsheviks want mothers to murder their gender and motherhood by becoming men. Leftists call this female gender destroying process equality.
"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
"Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of of the temple."
"And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
Humanism and the gospel of Jesus Christ are not one and the same. Humanism is a philosophy that nullifies the Standard Works and misinterprets the teachings of Jesus Christ. Humanism is a spiritual ailment that has crept into the teachings of Christ's church. Humanism has now become a philosophy of man that is mingled with scripture.
"In Matthew chapter 19 verses 1 thru 9, Jesus was questioned by the Pharisees concerning marriage and divorce. The pharisees allowed divorce for a multitude of stupid reasons. Jesus corrected their view by calling attention to Genesis chapter 1 verse 7 and chapter 2 verse 24. Telling the pharisees that if they wanted to see what God wanted in a marriage, they should get their rules from the way God set up marriage in the beginning. Please note that marriage as invented by God in the beginning, was setup to be fruitful and multiply and not to be sterile."
"Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?"
"He that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven...shall enter into the kingdom of heaven."
"Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
"The axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire."
Matt. 7:16-21 & 3:10
