Would You Do Something You Knew to Be Wrong for 1.5 Million Dollars?

I have not dealt with the JST of the Bible for too long a time. I apologize. Here is one verse that Joseph added to the beginning of chapter 7 of Matthew. I would call it verse 0, but it stands as verse 1.

    Now these are the words which Jesus taught his disciples,

    that they should say unto the people.

It is important to realize that what follows in chapter 7 was given to his chosen disciples. There were at least 12 men there, and possibly women. The point is that this was not relayed to the people directly, it was passed through his messengers first. 

I would like now to turn to verses 13 and 14 which because of other material Joseph added through inspiration (and NOT with help from Adam Clarke's commentary), theses two verses become 22 and 23. That makes 9 verses Joseph completely added, with no assistance for anything earthly.

The incomplete KJV reads,

    (13) 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.

The JST reads,

    (22) Repent, therefore, and enter ye in at the strait gate;

      for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to death,

    and many there be that go in thereat.

    (23) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, 

    that leadeth unto life, and few there be who find it. 

Now, adding "repent, therefore" is critical to the entire passage. The theme of the gospel is if we do not repent, then we all end up in the same horrific place. "Death", as in spiritual death, replaces "destruction." Destruction is obviously bad, but death is much more emphatic. "That" for "which" is the only change to verse 14. 

Now you are probably asking who is Nick Rolovich? Yesterday, he was the head football coach at Washington State University, which is member of the Pacific 12 Conference. Until today, he was making 3 million dollars a year to coach the Cougars of WSU (not to be confused with the Cougars of BYU). 

3 million dollars is more than any person on this planet should make doing anything. It is ridiculously high for coaching any sport, but Rolovich is not even close to being the highest paid coach in his own state. The point of mentioning his salary is to give context to what follows.

In essence, Rolovich was offered 1.5 million dollars this year, and 3 million per year for as long as he kept on complying. It is 1.5 million because he has already worked half of this season

Rolovich was fired today, in the middle of the season, for refusing to be vaccinated for covid-19. Washington's tyrannical governor, whose name deserves no mention, created a "mandate" for any person working for any state institution to be vaccinated for our latest flu virus under the guise of public health. There is no law in Washington forcing vaccination, but now that people conflate "mandate" with "law", we get the present injustices. 

Sadly, but justly, the dishonorable governor of Washington, and all tyrannical leaders in world history will have to pay for these sins for however long JESUS deems necessary. That payment will take place in a hell you and I would do well to avoid. JESUS himself described the agony He went though to make our escape possible, if we would repent and do what He asks.

Now my personal theology imagines a Hell that is not filled with beer drinkers, smokers, coffee drinkers, and women with 2 earrings. I believe only incredibly selfish people, cowards, hypocrites, murderers, child molesters, and tyrants will be turned over to Satan for a time. A time never to be forgotten.

Nick Rolovich is no coward and no tyrant. His players love him. He was willing to forfeit a 3 million dollar a year job to do what felt was right. Too many of us, myself included, are like the rich young ruler. We want to know what is required for eternal life. Yet, we do not want to do what is required for the greatest of GOD's gifts. Instead, we want the GOD who already did 99.99  percent of the horrific heavy lifting to just give us a pass on our part of the Universe's greatest bargain.

If you want to get vaccinated, get vaccinated, but do not do it just to get along. GOD is not going to damn anyone who did something in an effort to keep their job and keep feeding their family. There is nothing shameful in that. The flip side is He is not going to exalt that kind of person either. There is a middle Kingdom for people like me.

There will be a few people (JESUS's words, not mine) in the highest Heaven, but there will be no average people. Only exemplary people need apply. JESUS always did whatever it took to please His Father, regardless of the infinite cost. 

If we sincerely want to be with Him after this life, then we need to follow his example.

Nothing Succeeds Like Excess

I stole the title from a line from the Dowager of Downton Abbey, Violet Grantham. She is played to perfection by Dame Maggie Smith. I am fairly certain the line is not original to her, but no one has ever said it more eloquently than she. It is an obvious play on the more famous idea that "nothing succeeds like success."

Mormon Incorporated announced 13 more temples in their autumnal general conference. General, as in "generally boring." How can a church that is indisputably shrinking need 13 more temples? There are already too many to begin with. 

I finally came up with the following after discussing this with my wife. Both of us are former members of the Mormon church. Both of us were avid temple goers for a short season. Mercifully the Holy Spirit led us out of the charade of temple attendance, and away from the hypocrisy of the Mormon church.

The first reason for the latest baker's dozen of temples is to bamboozle the 3-4 million remaining active Mormons into thinking that the church is still growing. 

The second reason is to keep their tax exempt status. I may have the reasons backwards, because the Mormon church loves nothing so much as money.

Why come out and give an honest accounting of the decreasing membership, when you can just count 12-13 million inactive people into your total "membership." I would not be surprised if I am still being counted under some ridiculous label like "born a member, and was a member for the majority of his life, so we are still counting him."

If you are the captain of religion's version of the Titanic, don't alert the passengers, just ask the band to play louder. Distraction is the hallmark of the con man and the magician. President Nelson is no magician, but he is one of the world's greatest con artists. Con artist, because I am not sure he is a con man, because that would presuppose he is an actual man.

Of course, Utah got another temple (Heber Valley). Apparently, schlepping it to Salt Lake or Draper was a heavy burden for these descendants of the pioneers. Santiago, Chile will now have 2 temples. I guess Chileans have a lot of free time as members of a third world country. Rather than work to escape poverty the Mormons there prefer watching the same boring movie over and over. Rexburg, Idaho will have 2 temples soon, so the Nelson Youth of Eastern Idaho can choose which building to waste 2 hours in when the mood strikes them.

If the Mormon church were receiving any guidance from JESUS, then you would have seen at least one of the following headlines,

"LDS Church Announces 130 New Homeless Shelters to Span the Globe"

"1300 soup kitchens and food pantries donated by Mormon Church"

Until they do something with their billions to help actual poor people, you can rest assured things are still rotten in Utah's state religion.

The Daily Anecdotal Media Lie

Every day while searching for news I come across headlines about someone who refused to be vaccinated for covid and is now dead. Day after day this BS appears. It is always something like "Anti-vaxxer gets covid and dies wishing She had been more wise."

Fear is not the best way to motivate people. GOD motivates using love. Satan uses fear. You can be sure that anything designed to scare you is not true and did not come from GOD. For example religious leaders telling you to give them money, or you cannot go to their special building, and then you will never see your family again.

Here is my anecdote from my own life this past month.

"56 Year Old Unvaccinated Fat Man Gets covid, Lives, and Keeps Blogging"

I had a mild case of covid, with no fever, a small loss of taste, and two days of body aches. No hospital, no ventilator, and no cause for concern. It felt like a bad cold. I have had worse cases of the flu, like when I was 12 and banished to the basement for a week one summer. I was delirious then. Covid was merely annoying now. I had dysentery in Bolivia on my mission and came within hours of dying of extremely high fever. Thankfully GOD knew I needed to learn about 99,000 more things and repent of numerous sins, so HE spared me from Hell (temporarily).

Covid is not in the top ten worst illnesses of my life.

People have died of covid, although I know of no one personally. People die of the flu. People die of tuberculosis. People die of Valley Fever, which has been and will be a problem in the western United States for far longer than covid. Valley Fever has a head start. 

Get on with your life and ignore the fear created by governments and media. If GOD says it is your time to go, a mask and a pseudo-vaccine are Not going to save you. If it is not your time, a coronavirus has Zero chance of ending your life.

The Two Old Fools

 This week Mormon "for profit" Russell Marion Nelson will turn 97. I am sure there will be a big party honoring his mediocrity. Joe Biden will turn 79 in November of this year. His presidency has been a disaster thus far. Both of these so-called leaders would like every American to be "vaccinated" against covid. Both of these pseudo-men are high functioning imbeciles that think they are special.  

With a middle name like Marion, you are wise to shorten it to M. so people won't take the obvious hint. Biden's middle name is Robinette, which I believe is French for "steal from the workers, and give to the lazy asses."

This has nothing to do with Biden being a Democrat, because the guy before him was also an idiot. And the guy before him, and so on, and so on. The last great American President was Thomas Jefferson. The last true Mormon leaders were Joseph and Hyrum Smith.

I follow no man. I follow the "SON of MAN." JESUS demonstrated what a true leader does. He did not have birthday parties on someone else's dime. He used His power to turn water into wine, bread and fish into a feast, and blood into reconciliation. He valued the individual more than the collective. He served all, and was rarely served by anyone else.

All the information you need you can get from CHRIST and the Holy Spirit. Ignore everything else and get your eyes focused on the One True Light so you can dispel the increasing darkness of this fallen world.

The Truth Does Not Need the Help of Lies

In the current battle between vaccinated and unvaccinated let me state the following unequivocally:

1. No one on this planet has been vaccinated against covid.

2. A lot of foolish people have been given shots that will supposedly lessen the symptoms of covid and theoretically prevent death from this virus.

If the various vaccines were really vaccines, and they really worked, you would not have to lie about them to get people to accept the narrative.

If they really worked they would not be free. 

Pharmaceutical companies are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts.

This is not about saving humanity, this is about enslaving humankind.

You have your GOD-given agency, but it wasn't free. CHRIST had to pay a terrible price to allow you the right to choose your choices. Satan would like you to think you can avoid the consequences of those choices.

If you have to exaggerate to get people to do something, then you are heading headlong into hell.

JESUS did not exaggerate. HE knew the truth would upset most people, but refused to sugarcoat it. HE told his earthly followers how hard it truly is to follow HIM. Most deserted HIM. No one left because they were deceived by CHRIST. They left because they wanted a world with free food, free miracles, and political power. They wanted a GOD would allow them to do whatever they wanted with no consequences, simply because they were the "chosen people."

We are all going to meet up soon in the Spirit World. Some will end up there sooner rather than later because of fear. Fear of a flu virus or fear of not following the crowd. Regardless of timing, I think one of the questions everyone gets asked is...

"Did you lie down for a lie, or stand up for the truth?"

The Hearts of Conspiring Men in the Last Days

First let me state that "Wisdom" in the scriptures could be code for our Heavenly Mother. That idea is not original with me. If it is true then it started with our Heavenly Parents, and if it is not, then blame me. 

Perhaps GOD the Father does not want his children creating profanity using his sacred spouse's name, but there is a Mother in Heaven. You cannot have children without parents of 2 different genders. 

One revelatory jewel came to Joseph Smith in the early days before mormonism went off the rails by chasing sex, money, and power. It is section 89, commonly called "The Word of Wisdom." I believe it is information given to us by a Parent who loves us just as infinitely as our Savior JESUS CHRIST. Whether my gospel speculation is correct or not, the information contained in section 89 is true. It is given to us from the Beings who created us. THEY know our weaknesses better than any politician, and certainly better than any health expert that will ever walk this fallen planet.

Bill Sardi has pointed out on (and his own blog) since the beginning of the covid pandemic that the entire medical establishment has been acting out of ignorance, greed, and a desire for fame. They may be the most corrupt body of professionals the world has even known. It is hard to out-lie the average politician but they are pulling it off.

Sardi believes that the world's population is experiencing the effects of B1 deficiency. This is known as Beriberi. Modern doctors overlook this diagnosis out of inexperience, incompetence, laziness, or greed. The symptoms of Beriberi are virtually identical to the symptoms of covid. There are 30 symptoms that are similar, not just 2 of 3. Feel free to check in out yourself with Sardi's latest article "A Pandemic Within a Pandemic."

The interesting point is that there are 4 key things that disrupt our bodies absorption of B1 (thiamine). 

1. Alcohol

2. Coffee

3. Tea

4. Sugar

There are other B1 blockers, but these 4 do the most damage. What kinds of behavior increased because of fear and isolation during the dark days of early covid hysteria? Drinking and overconsumption of sugar. What countries love tea? Anywhere that the British empire has influenced. India being the latest nation to be overly effected. I know that sugar is not specifically covered in section 89. That could be because it was so hard to get sugar the 1800s anywhere in the world. 

GOD the Mother knew what was coming and tried to warn us 187 years in advance. If you look at covid numbers from Utah and Idaho they are well below the averages of other neighboring states. Fewer deaths per capita is the key statistic. Even if the fatalities are inflated everywhere (my personal opinion) Utah and Idaho have combined for less than 5,000 covid fatalities. 

I am not advocating for anyone to join or rejoin the LDS church or any of its offshoots. I am attempting to get you to take some B1 supplements in case the Goddess who did the heavy lifting in creating all of us was behind section 89. If She was, then mormons, former mormons, cultural mormons, and Jack mormons need not fear if they will listen to their MOTHER.

"Live Free or Die'

Just this week, New Hampshire has created a law the makes churches "essential services" that cannot be shutdown during any state of emergency. Obviously, the governor there, Chris Sununu, is a Republican. No howl at the moon stupid left-wing leader would ever entertain such an idea. This was not another power hungry governor forcing people to do what he felt was best and using the cover of the word "mandate." The bill passed both chambers of The New Hampshire legislature, and was then signed into law by Sununu. You know, like laws used to be passed before covid. 

Congratulations to the citizens of one of the original 13 colonies. 13 Colonies that risked lives, limbs, fortunes, property, and their sacred honor in taking on the world's greatest superpower in the 1770s. The motto of this exemplary state is the title of this piece. All true Americans believe it, but apparently few who live here now have the courage to stand up to tyranny. Shame on us.

Of course, all this begs the question: why wasn't Utah, a state filled with Mormons, at the forefront of creating such a law?

Because Utah, like the Mormon church, is run from the top down. Mormons do what they are told. They like having someone to tell them what to do. New Hampshire is ruled by a free people with no predominant state religion. The irony in this situation can be cut with a dull spoon.

It probably comes down to active Mormons secretly pleased to take a year off from mindless repetition. As Rock Waterman has pointed out time and again, if you are OK with following a prophet, you may all just end up in the same ditch. Or you take a detour through a great and spacious building labeled "Conference Center" or "temple."

I wish there were more sacred honor in this country, but at least in New Hampshire there is still some left. It remains to be seen, if there is any in Utah, or Idaho, or anywhere else. 

I hope against hope, like a back from the dead Gandalf the White, that this moment is the turning of tide.
