The proud wish God would agree with them. They aren’t interested in changing their opinions to agree with God’s.

 I’m examining the difference between Obama’s government and the kind of government we have in the church.  We both subscribe to a leader, Obama on the one hand, the Prophet on the other.   What is the real difference?   Obama spends our money freely, and taxes more if needed.  The church spends its money too – on temples, churches, schools, humanitarian aid.  Where does the church get its money?  Voluntary donations.  Is there any pressure to donate?  We have basically entered into a covenant where all that we have belongs to the church:  our talents, our time, our property, for the benefit of helping our fellow man.  Obama wants us to do the same thing, give all we have to help those who don’t have as much.

We have two very distinct systems of government here, you could call each one a socialist system, but there is one huge difference.  Christ could come to earth and assume His rightful place as King of Kings, Lord of Lords, which would place Him in a world government leadership position.  We would hand him back the keys to the kingdom and He would rule and reign.  Period.   Anyone willing to subscribe to His system would be included in it.  All others would be ushered off to the “waiting place”.  

The Waiting Place

Unfortunately the waiting place is not here on earth, but somewhere in heaven, which means at the time of Christ’s coming some will remain, others will be ushered out.   I don’t see this act of God as a vengeful hateful God fulfilling His prophetic words by destruction of the wicked.  I see it as an act of love for His people.  Who are His people?  Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, and anyone who is found holding true to their belief in God and to true principles at the moment of His coming.  They are people who have overcome the influence of satan in their homes by preparing a sanctuary there for the family.  

How will His government look, and in what way will it be different from Obama’s.  (btw I just use the name Obama as symbolic of the world government that is surely coming our way, if it isn’t here already)  We will enjoy freedom, because that is God’s gift to man.  We will be free to choose, but we will choose good, because that is who we are.  Christ is waiting for people to become like Him.   He is waiting for us to overcome wicked and evil, corruption and tyranny.  We still have a lot to do.  Are we ready for the battle which is bearing down upon us now?  

To my Christian friends who fear God for all the wrong reasons,  God is not who you think He is.  The waiting place is a place of hope and correction, of missionary work and improvement.  It is a place of choice and freedom to make choice.  But, we are all bound by law and space, we cannot enter into space we are not prepared to enter.  Light burns.  God is a loving god, and there is a place for everyone, suited to themselves.  
There is a law

This I file under Chassis

CHASSIS: God is the power that carries us, gives us breath, and agency to create our own wagon and chart our own course. The chassis is the framework that holds the box flat and balances the weight.

 

Satan: God, Christ, Holy Ghost:
Goal: Goal:
To force mankind to live eternally in his kingdom, on earth and beyond the grave.   Moses 1:39   This is my work and my glory:  to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.
   
Procedure: Procedure:
Develop secret societies, financed secretly by the government, prepared to take over and redistribute wealth, according to guidelines and restrictions placed by the government, when called upon to mobilize. The people will be informed and prepared to volunteer their lives to protect their families, their freedoms, and their right to worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience.
Follow the Progressive movement, which is full of secret combinations with the intent to   

  • destroy the freedom of mankind
  • degenerate the family
  • erase God 
The Constitution of the United States is an inspired document for our day.  The Book of Mormon is also.  Both have outlined and explained procedures, and warn of dangers.  The Book of Mormon includes cause and effect outcomes of good and poor choices. 
   
Guidelines: Guidelines:
The family must be  broken The family and God will remain central to life
Gay/Lesbien/transgender alternatives to be taught in schools as acceptable standards, in the name of tolerance. True standards of fidelity, modesty, virtue will be the guidelines followed by a righteous people
Environmentalists will use propaganda to convince people the earth is more sacred than God. God stated the earth was created for man.  We will use wisdom in our care of it, and recognize our valuable resources. 
   
Outcomes: Outcomes:
A government with one man at the helm, and all populations subservient to him.  A government structure which values freedom, knows right from wrong, and can govern with God as a partner.
Religions will collapse, as faith in God is destroyed The Church of Jesus Christ will attract members from all faiths, and unitedly they will overcome evil by their righteous living.
Populations will self-destruct Light will increase in the earth
Calamities will increase in the earth: volcanoes, earth quakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, stars will fall from heaven. Christ will come.  Ten lost tribes will return.  New Jerusalem will be built on the American continent.  Temple in Old Jerusalem will be built again.  The earth will be renewed.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Being a Canadian, who once lived in United States, I grew to love certain things about the USA. I loved standing at attention every morning and reciting the pledge of allegiance in High School. I loved the swelling feelings of true patriotism as we sang the songs of liberty at patriotic events, like at Disneyland.

Canada is a wonderful little country. Big land with most of the population hugging close to the 49th parallel. Here we don’t get all patriotic like they do south of the border. They think they are the best country in the world. Maybe we think we’re the worst. Canada has always been at odds with the French. The French are a little Democracy in the middle of a struggling Republic. The Federal Government has always tried to inch its way into our Provincial pockets, stealing from us and trying to give to the welfare state in the east. However, Canada has not allowed herself to be taken over by such corruption as is going on in the USA right now. Shame on you United States. Perhaps you should take a lesson from us. It is not good to be too proud, or arrogant. If you are a true republic you should feel modest and grateful; be protective and pro-active of your liberties, and hold them close and dear.
Some quotes I like:
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. – Thomas Jefferson

“Democracy is the road to Socialism.”- Karl Marx

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.” – H.L. Mencken  More Quotes
It is long past time for the masses to educate themselves on government. While we sit by not paying attention our treasury is being robbed, and our country destroyed, for where America goes, Canada follows.

There is no use in fighting unless we have quality replacement options. It is not enough to just be mad, we must also be wise, and turning inward is the beginning of wisdom. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the holy is understanding”.
Or, Confuscious put it best in his classic essay, “The Great Learning”:

The ancients who wished to illustrate illustrious virtue throughout the
world, first ordered well their own States.
古之欲明明德於天下者,先治其國
Wishing to order well their States, they first regulated their families.
欲治其國者,先齊其家
Wishing to regulate their families, they first cultivated their persons.
欲齊其家者,先修其身
Wishing to cultivate their persons, they first rectified their hearts.
欲修其身者,先正其心
Wishing to rectify their hearts, they first sought to be sincere in their thoughts.
欲正其心者,先誠其意
Wishing to be sincere in their thoughts, they first extended to the utmost of their knowledge.
欲誠其意者,先致其知
Such extension of knowledge lay in the investigation of things.
致知在格物
Things being investigated, knowledge became complete.
物格而後知至
Their knowledge being complete, their thoughts were sincere.
知至而後意誠
Their thoughts being sincere, their hearts were then rectified.
意誠而後心正
Their hearts being rectified, their persons were cultivated.
心正而後身修
Their persons being cultivated, their families were regulated.
身修而後家齊
Their families being regulated, their States were rightly governed.
家齊而後國治
Their States being rightly governed, the entire world was at peace.
國治而後天下平
From the Son of Heaven down to the mass of the people, all must
consider the cultivation of the person the root of everything besides. (…)
自天子以至於庶人,壹是皆以修身為本 (…)

Not only does turning inward lead to wisdom, but it also leads to power. This is the core message of the Cause of Liberty. Fixing ourselves as individuals is what fixes the world.

“The most influential leaders from Jesus Christ to Gandhi, have taken this approach. They seem to have done a pretty good job of improving the world.” If our education was deep and broad enough we wouldn’t have to ask fruitless questions. We would rather be prepared with the answers.

Where should I file this, and will it fit somewhere on my personal covered wagon that I travel through life in? I’ll add this to my wheels.
WHEELS:
This is not about God; it is about me. God in me allows me to think for myself, plan, and carry out the plan. What do I need to keep myself moving? Label your wheels with four self-propelling titles that cover your general well-being. These are mine. I need:

Focus: Motivation & Organization (for education)

Belief: If I think I can change I can change (for education)

Love: Love and Social Support (for education)

Health: Nutrition, Rest, Exercise (for education)

Everyone travels through life in a covered wagon and lives in a tee-pee.  They just don’t know it.
