  6. Mormons… women…. time… and misleading. so in any organisation it has problems, but I often find their interpretation and internal conflicts and crimes and well its rooted in money. With each war, or conflict artificially created, it funnels more bodies into its ranks, like most things of its nature and often its outside the realm of knowledge. Thus you have the writings of nonsense in which condemn anyone with knowledge, as lucifer, or as if someone is like, and what about a independent system that acts accordingly and is then destroyed by such subjugation? An order of hierarchy makes sense, but peoepl still never learn, through would see death or killing as a breaking a commandment and not the frutis fo what was going on. So when someone is murdering your family in an act of aggression against teh civilian complex then this becomes a problem, so the ww2 and germany on Britain, destroyed all of Britain and created a cascade of lies and nonsense post ww2, by the cpaital use of warfare in which removed people from their avenues. To think upon if one kills is of error, then knows not the actions and struggle of life, because if I take upon a weapon to remove the Mormons, would I then not be fought back with a weapon? So when one is being attacked one their is taught to defend. Of coruse this is muddied by men only like war, and thus the witchcraft of social words and persecution of males of a society brought about by media, clearly nto kindness nor conducive ot breeding or beign in a open system but creates a closed system, Which is weird since males are almost out numbered 1/5 times in America. THus this changes the movement, but when biases occur in education and state funding, to whom is it and what group? Although a group in which creates a system can work, it often creates other problems. There is no poverty, just ignorance and abuse that creates it. teach a man to fish, etc… Then we have money, there is not one stone or place upon this earth that any human can have without paying someone. Not one place one can be now. there used to be a law in which if someone had a functional home, and civilsation encroached the removal of that home etc was not allowed, protected. It still existed in the late 90's before in this region they fired all the real rangers. So what I see is the extermination of the natural defenders and intelligent humans for a proxy system that exploits and creates goods, and is the opposite, so the natural leaders in which are easy to find, go and havea rational conversation with a person that isa descendent of one, and it makes sense, test their logic nad see if they still have it. So in that regard I would state, the raod to death is paved with good intentions. This ignores all the money crimes that destroyed naturally autonomous communities with no financial problems or other problems that simply did and operated under these functions that peope lstate, I often find the method in which this work is made is of erorr, and the rabbis were at odds with jesus for thigns he would state were blsphemmousist, but a logical sense. So autonomy is preferred over teh cult collectivism that destroys nations and ousts and creates conflict and subjugation whihc is more like buddhism. Where christ was to set the happy little dogs free, slaves and captives, HE stated it clearly of the system in place and the hypocrisy. So what was christ is much damaged now form teh self autonomy of the natural action. Christ stated, we are all children of GOD, which meant were all the sons and daughters of god. The acts of warfare ad social normalizing of deviances and to even in ones house the inept abiltiy then to protect ones house over pride rather tha ndeal with the indivudals at fault or needing in correction. So one shouldn't hide the things we don't want but bring them to light and deal with them, butto mask things wel creates distaste and a loss of trust… Women…women have a history of metnal problem due to the fact of the what we are as animals. Limited breeding span, and thus tactics in which to replicate are attempted to be ensured. This is aggressive means to attract a male for insemination, rather than a natural bond or love, and the media of today and thepast influence a culture in which turn women into commodities liek housing and thus women become discarded things of the nation. This is a problem due to numbers and so analyzing teh system of information, there are correction and palcemetns to deal with a system in place. So the average affair and sexual ecounter is proportional to the amount of women per men available in the system, and in china where men outnumber females by 200 mil, it is also proportional by teh stats in an opposite manner, and so the conflict of breeding in humanity or sex is often upside down do to teh nonsense of how humans are relating, so the logos of th system is not addressed to tehkidnness oftheneed of life, and the works and techings to be done, meaning that, works last beyond a lifetime typically, sex and offspring are intances, and the offspring that are created will have upon them their own independence. All of humanity is works upon works. Then often the plague of murder or non logical conflict is around breeding and sex, and so a cure to this madness is thevalue of what a women is and service in which they can be and do and breeding ina different formatulation of thought, and because of money and the offset of women to men, men typically have more money except for in the last whiel where men are attacked by state and a place and forced to to do lesser works which then created a dead breeding ratio similar to 400 ad, where women attacked the nobles and nobles basically became gay the leadersock becasue women aggressive created a system against males and their natural ways, then women created anti gay laws and so their interjection itno law created an effect that casued a stupification of a system already in palce, which at the time the priests were empowering women. So empowering women creates a sstupid society whe nthe natural information of reality is not addresse.d and information is what well soloman talked about. So sex..breeding, many cultures and palces have created solutions, some worked well others made females subject,t neither of which ever taught information of the female/ male sexual problems of conflict. So to have astable system that is not expanding, every person alive today has to ahve one child per person of who they are. meaning that would make a system status quo a balanced system, but this would hav a defecit becasue there is a death rate, so we need to replicate more then the system to balance infant deaths. In other words when a male ina society is outnumbered nearly 1/5 that means he has ot have atleast 5 children to havea slow death. So he would have to have atleast 6-7 children in order for the system to maintain a balance and or possibly expand. Thus we have many old laws that were created by women and writings in which are asy to see once you understand the world and the natural plight of women. and so we can see teh rise and fall fo women in society proportional to the laws that remove wealth from men and the attack fo women against mne so that they can secure a palce in society, all of which is not a logical way to communicate humanity and its needs. So logically christ stated love fulfills the law. Whe na system is in disbalance one has ot be organic enough hto change the system or alter it, but migrating pacts fo wolves or criminals into ones land is not a system that should be taken lightly, then that creates males to rise in soiecty creating an military state ,becasue males are having and women their properties taken over or in ruin. As a interesting side note, its only 35-50 women/ mothers per thousand years. So breeding and having children should be a blessing, and women need ot particapte in that whether they can have children or not. However teh aggressive wome nthat oust men out of position and society only to build for aforeign regieme nd livea lawless unproducing life is adanger to a society, because women would state men are oppressing them, which is nto the case by the examination of law. So society of our ilk has developed the hush realm, in which males do particapte in artificial insemination to groups that don't have children. Of course people state their a plethora of orphans andwhat not, itsa numbers issue. Some systems expand whiel others collapse. So I look at western systms ocllaspign for various reaons, mostly becaue of illogical choices and or foreign attacks on the system that was in blacne or gaining blacne, to disrupt and impede life. Women when they are no longer udner the freedom fo that kid spirit, have that mother spirit its in teh programming, and to teach wome nto fight against it, is probably or have vengeance against it is probably not a wise thing.

  7. It would be good if the LDS taught the truth of the Bible instead of their Freemason based contradictions?

    2 Corinthians 11:

    2 I feel a divine jealousy for you, for I betrothed you to Christ to present you as a pure bride to her one husband.

    3 But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

    4 For if some one comes and preaches another Jesus than the one we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you submit to it readily enough.

    Galatians 1:

    6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel —

    7 not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.

    8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed.

    9 As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed.

    10 Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ.

    11 For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not man's gospel.

    12 For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

  8. Since when did lds church start monetizing their vids? I was forced to watch an ad to watch this. When, why, how could you? I guess the "prophets" have been selling books for profit since the beginning….

  9. , I have so much to say and God knows and as a convert as of the year ago I have been through many churches my whole life and I have lived with my faith being a very strong quality along with the gifts of the Holy Spirit and ever since I was baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints everything just makes so much more sense and never did before and I just want to be a testimony to everybody and anybody that I can reach out to even being terminally ill and bedridden and hospitalized as its very hard on me in the winter times and my twin died unexpectedly 5 years ago but I will just say that I have a book of testimonies but I want to share and help others while I'm still on this Earth being that missionary and being very thankful and blessed for everything that I do have and not to complain about what I don't have or what I can't do but the focus on what I can do as my heavenly father I love so much and I believe in his son Jesus the atonement John 3:16 and I believe in the gifts of the holy spirit as I am a child of God and I will be what I believe I pray daily for every missionary God bless their hearts I take the MS in my home as my own children the missionaries I call my misionary daughters and I'm so thankful for such a beautiful Church who goes out of their way to love you and then make sure that you are okay and all I want to do in return is to physically go out of my way like I used to I used to be that active and they told me will now it's your turn to get received and I said I still want to go I would walk miles with you each day to knock on those doors! I continually tell everybody that I know to give me a list of prayers because while I'm terminally ill and bedridden I can help by praying for everything everyday and fast for somebody or situation even from myself when I go through panic attacks physical pain but this Spitfire me definitely never gives up or we'll never quit until I'm called in the spirit world I will continue to live love and I pray thanks to Heavenly Father in advance for everyday for that peace that passes all understanding and let us all feel that miraculous peace everyday and every breath we take that peace of passes all understanding the name of Jesus I pray amen God bless y'all infinity X infinity 🙏🏼☝️✌❤💪☝️❤❤

  10. 😢😢😢☝️☝️☝️☝️❤❤❤👏👏👏👏✌✌☝️☝️☝️ but of course I'm in tears I'm very emotional like that and always have been! The Spirit-filled is emotional in me and I giggled to but not in front of anybody and I pray that specially during sacrament please don't let me get the giggles yep I've lived in non denominational churches and been baptized there as well so converting has been the best time of my life the best year most miraculous year and I couldn't be happier in my spirit and in my faith and I am now and there's so many issues going on but I don't care I'm Spirit happy and The Human Side of Me is a Spitfire that will never give up no matter how angry I get when I'm not able to make it to church because of being bedridden not making it to the 10th hole cuz that's what I desire or seeing my kids because I'm in the hospital or bedridden! Instead I am thankful for what I do have and for what I can do and for what is already done for me and all of us and I change my thought process because it's not about me! It's about what can we do for others to understand a lack of knowledge as I had a stereotype of this church years ago and the lack of knowledge as I was introduced to the Book of Mormon during the Gulf War and Germany as a military mom and wife and I can definitely tell you that I watched Saturday's Warriors 1989 version when I babysat for the girl I went to the temple one of the other military wives she left me with a book of Mormon opened it once but it caught the Dust and who would have thought years later than my younger sister would marry into the Mormon family and I thought she was playing house and all it took was one answered to it one question that I asked her about the temple and then she gave me that answer I felt bad Spirit flow through me like never before miraculously I believe and I believed in that moment that there had to be more involved and that's what I said to her! I said that I knew there was more to this I just knew it and I was baptized March 24th 2018 God bless and I'm praying for anybody and everybody always🙏🏼☝️✌❤

  11. Mormon Elohim sure is a fickle being. He changes where the wind blows out of Salt Lake apparently. No, Russell Nelson doesn't deserve any recognition for backing down from a hateful "revelation" which never should have happened to begin with.
    The more things change the more they stay the same.

  12. WE LOVE YOU GOD!!!! AND THANK-YOU
    DAILY FOR YOUR SON, JESUS CHRIST !! PLEASE
    BLESS US ALL TO TRY HARDER TO LIVE AS
    YOUR SON!! MUCH LOVE !!! MGVV

  13. As Christian church was slowly hijacked by those who now we now Catholic Church, now Catholic Church being hijacked by Mormons and capitalized on history of Rome.

  14. Wow, following a womanizer, writing a book with no archaeological backing from a man, Joseph Smith, that had 37 wives, and died in prison from a riot of men (1844), angry that he had tried to seduce their wives to get married with him. People flee from this sect. I would like for anyone to take this to their bishop and have them refute this. It's all in the church history. Also, that Joseph Smith practiced divination, using seeing stones? Really ? Please repent and come to Christ or you will die in your sins.

  15. Where are the dark skinned people that are this way, through the curse of sin? How sad. What a sad false sect.

  16. Back in the 70's, I went to Temple Square in SLC. I was alarmed to see a graven image in the visitor's center. God said, "Do not make unto yourselves graven images…" The commandment was even inscribed on the wall across the passageway from the image. I knew it was wrong for it to be there and i wondered how the Leaders of the church could allow such a thing, not knowing at the time, they were the ones who set it up. I looked at the face on the image and knew it was not the face of Jesus, and wondered whose face was carved on the rock. It was not until 2010 that the Lord revealed to me the face. It is the face of Lucifer. I could not believe it. I did not want to believe it, but it is true. I investigated and found out that David O. McKay was an agent of the Catholic church and he set up the image. Now the church's affiliation with the Catholic church is evident to everybody. The church of Jesus Christ of LDS is not a restored church anymore. It is a disguised Catholic church and the images are proof of that. The Catholic church marks its territory with Graven and there you have it. If you are happy with that, its your funeral. These men are not true prophets seer or revelators.

  17. Sad to read some of these comments. They will never understand the joy that is offered through the Church unless their hearts are changed. It is the Savior's Church, nothing will stand in its way.

  18. its honestly amazing that this is real… i'm embarrassed that modern man still believes in magic with this apparent honesty and fervor…

  19. I want 1 Mormon church member to show me from the scriptures of the bible GOD gave his church over to Joseph Smith to teach the world, Everything about the Mormon church is nothing but a lie Everything it's a Cult

  20. I just read that Jesus Christ changed his mind on gay marriage, no longer punishing children of gay parents. What a marvelous thing to do in 2019. Jesus has truly caught up with human development.

  21. I'm pretty sure when you get to the Gated City you'll not see Joseph Smith there. Jesus's name is the gate Joseph Smith's name is not the gate you'll have to answer to Jesus himself. All the wise men all the Shepherds and all the angels worship Jesus Emmanuel God With Us. He deserves worship the first commandment Thou shall Worship the Lord your God and him only shalt you serve. Are you then a wise man or do you think you could become a god Satan thought he could become a god and got kicked out of heaven.

  22. It’s the wrong Jesus why can’t you guys see that!!! There will not be one Mormon in the kingdom of God!!! Take your faith out of Mormonism and put your faith in the real Jesus biblical Jesus or you will burn in hell!!!

  23. Preparing for conference this morning. I love to see the temple, I'm going there soon! I love the Lord and his gospel.

  24. Believe me this is all about making more money !!!!!!!More genealogy more temple work more tithing because there are BIG!!!!!numbers of people running 🏃‍♀️ away !!!!!Please people do your own RESEARCH PLEASE PEOPLE !!!!!!ALL LIES LIES!!

  25. mat.12.38,27.63,mar.8.31. can you show me how to count this . i am having trouble fitting this into fri. to sun. time of death is betwween 3 and 4 in the afternoon
    please help.

  26. Hey Sol family, I just released the first video in my series of decoding the Bible. If you’re interesting in learning the REAL way it’s supposed to be read, check it out. I assure you, it’ll change your whole perception.⚡️🔱

  27. Prayers and thoughts for all wonderful people of California and all around the world who have faced natural disasters. So blessed to know that God lives and Loves all of us as His children NO MATTER WHAT COLOR< ETHNICITIES< NATIONALITIES etc…

  28. I feel absolutely privileged to be a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints, amazing things are happening in this world. In these last days of trouble and glum.

  29. The way i look at it, if Joseph Smith was lying then why didn't he just say ok i made it up? Instead he sealed his testimony with his blood, also the night he was dragged from his home n was tarred and feathered, his wife Emma n he lost there youngest because of the cold, the baby died, me personally I would have stopped it all then. :,(. Like he said something like, i know that the thing's i say are true. I will denigh or dare i, for i knew it and i know the God knew it…

  30. Wow I am so excited by the most recent General Conference experience. It is such a blessing to have inspired men and women of God to execute the goals of Jesus Christ as He moves His church and Kingdom forward in these Latter-days.

  31. love watching The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my wife is sister val hope one day be brother nigel lerning everyday all about god god bless you all.

  32. If this scholarship was encouraged in the LDS, perhaps it would become Christian, maybe?

    The Bible has quite different things to say about priesthood. First, the Aaronic priesthood was limited to Jewish male members from the tribe of Levi who were descendants from Aaron (Ex. 28:1; Num. 3:5-13; Heb. 7:5). The priesthood was inherited by descent from Aaron, not received through ordination. It was never supposed to be practiced by Gentiles (non-Jews). There is absolutely no teaching about this doctrine of the Aaronic priesthood being practiced by Gentiles in the Old or New Testaments.

    Furthermore, the Aaronic priesthood was done away with through Christ as the final priest (Heb. 7:11-12) who fulfilled the Law as the eternal Priest (Heb. 7:11-28; 8:6-7ff). The Old Testament priests were mediators, but now Jesus is the only Mediator between men and God (1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 7:24-25; Jn. 14:6). Therefore, there is no need for this Aaronic priesthood authority today. Finally, the High Priest in the Old Testament would enter the holy of holies once a year to make a sacrifice for sins of himself and others (Ex. 30:10; Heb. 9:7, 19-22). However, Jesus completed the work of salvation by being the High Priest and the sacrifice (Heb. 3:1; 9:11-12, 25-26)! Since Christ's work is finished (John 19:30), there is no need for a High Priest on this earth. Christ is the only mediator and High Priest in heaven (1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 8:1-6).

  33. idk what to say ..I just felt the spirit and the love of Christ and how yellow T-SHIRTS help around the world it is really inspiring…

  34. 1:20 There is a mistake F.Y.I… Not three sessions but Seven…

    Another funny mistake, 5:20 The Salt Lake City flag is Argentina instead of USA (Edit)

  35. Jesus IS the WORD OF GOD. It is To HIS WORD that we Be Accountable. We are NOT accountable to men or to mens words..in the bible or out. You are making IDOLS out of people Here.

  36. A Mormon claimed the Doctrine and Covenants are true. So the question
    is, why don’t you believe:

    LDS doctrine and Covenants 20:

    27
    As well as those who should come after, who should believe in the gifts and
    callings of God by the Holy Ghost, which beareth record of the Father and of
    the Son;

    28
    Which Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one God, infinite and eternal, without
    end. Amen.

  37. It’s mind boggling to think that people actually believe this crap. Everyone in the comments is like “Jesus saved me! Praise the holy lord!” Open your eyes people, see the real word.

  38. Fui muy clara y honesta les dije no más dañó por qué lo ase CON Jesucristo pero nuchos no entediero así que esa es mi verdad lo testificó con el poder Jehová amen

  39. En el obra del templo primero estoy en la obra de mí familia de creación celestial LO TESTIFICÓ CON EL PODER DE JEHOVÁ AMEN

  40. Desde madera californiana ELVIA GIRON . 2112. Sanset madera californiana la iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los últimos días LO TESTIFICÓ CON EL PODER DE JEHOVÁ AMEN

  41. @ce collie

    This is typical LDS: you make a statement – even when you have no evidence to substantiate what you write – and everyone is supposed to take it as true!!!

    Let's put your statement to the test:

    You believe that there was a Great Apostasy soon after Jesus died, no?

    St. Matthew 16:18 has Jesus telling Peter that the gates of hell would not prevail against His Church. So, in essence, you believe Jesus had no clue about what he was saying because the gates of hell did prevail, right?

    I understand what is written in St. Matthew 16:18 … there was no Great Apostasy …

    You believe there was a Great Apostasy – so who better understands what was written by St. Matthew?

  42. They act like they're the president of the United States and fly all over with there church money that u give tham. That is God's money not there's

  43. Muhammad was a picture of death that followed Satan. Joseph Smith for Mormonism also a picture of death that followed Satan. Satan came as an Angel to both. Muhammad knew what he saw was EVIL, but later a girl turned Muhammad on with flattering lips convinced him it wasn't evil. Today Muslim girls have to wear dark hot clothing because darkness represents where all Muhammad's followers will go.

    Joseph Smith also would say anything for the applause of girls. He stuck his head, (not in a cave like Muhammad) but in his hat in darkness for direction. Today Mormon Artist has pulled his lying face out of his hat where he made up the book of Mormon and placed him sitting by a table flattering him to all with a painted Holy look that brought in the Book of Mormon. What a nasty way deceiving many to a wrong direction.

    Both Muhammad and Smith are today in Satan's Brimstone bed for a hot time. They both listened to flattering lips but not the true God. For this many will be intruders in darkness that was prepared for the Devil and it's Demons.

    I wonder if secretly how many Mormons follows Joseph Smith's and Muhammad's appetite for girls.

  44. I wonder how long it took the accountants in Salt Lake City to process the Twelve Apostles expense report.
