Priest- and Priestess-craft is destroying the human race.

If there is one word that can describe the reason that our group of humans (those of us experiencing mortal life together in this solar system) is going to fail this last and sixth time, it would be PRIDE.

It is with great hypocrisy that we write this treatise.  But it must be said and explained.

Everyone is right.  Which makes everyone wrong.®

But we are the only ones who are right about this.  We know that we are not wrong about this.

It is in hypocrisy that we write because we know that what we know about human reality is the only reality.  We know that unless a person agrees with us, that person is completely wrong.  The person who disagrees with us and is wrong is contributing to the reason why the social structure in which we exist as humans upon this Earth is failing, as it did five different times during the past history of Earth’s existence.

PRIDE is the culprit.

The idea that what makes YOU happy and gives YOU self-worth, that what gives YOU self-esteem or self-importance, that what gives YOU a purpose in life is of more importance than another’s idea as to what makes THEM happy, is the reason why we are failing.

None of us is of any greater importance to the whole of humanity than any other … NONE OF US.

Each person is the greatest entity that exists, and everything found in the shared environment of our mortal experience … except each other … exists for each person equally … equally for each individual.  But this is not how we live.  This is not what we believe.

There are NO special individual gifts or abilities given to any human that is not given to everyone else equally when it comes to human existence upon Earth.  When born upon Earth, barring any abnormal physical defect that might affect a normal physical body or mind, each person is endowed with and possesses every gift and ability that everyone else does.

When born, we require specific elements of the Earth’s environment in order to survive.  We only require food, water, and safety from the environment.  Safety from the environment includes safe housing, the appropriate clothing to protect us from the weather, and personal safety from predators and other humans (which protection, we have termed “government”).

We depend upon the Earth to provide us with our basic needs (food, water, and safety).  Although these things are an important part of our existence, they are not the most important part.  Other humans are the most important part of our existence.

Upon being born and coming into existence upon Earth, none of us could survive without the help of another human.  If all other humans ceased to exist except the infant, it would be impossible for any human to survive infancy.  Infants do not know how to give themselves food and water or provide safety for themselves.  (The stories of a human being raised among wild animals are complete fabrications.)

When the first human was born upon Earth, if there was not another human already living upon Earth, the first human would not survive.  This Real Truth negates the idea of evolution, because what species could possibly evolve and survive when the beginning of that species’ existence requires a fully grown adult member to assist and ensure the species’ survival?

As a whole, in comparison with all other life forms found on Earth, humans are the least likely to survive in nature.  They have no natural way to survive without the help of more knowledgeable and experienced adults.  It is impossible for a human infant to survive.  Therefore, if evolution created humans, and the natural process of all life (according to the Theory of Evolution) eventually created human infants, how is it possible that the human infant could have survived long enough to evolve to become the greatest, most powerful and most intelligent life form upon Earth?

According to the theory, all other animals could have survived because their infants are not as dependent on the adults as much and for as long.  It would be very hard, if not impossible, for any human to survive alone (without other humans) for six years.  Almost every other species of animal on Earth is a fully grown adult by six years.  One exception is the largest land mammal of all: the elephant.  Similar to humans, an infant elephant needs its mother for a longer period of time and elephants go through about the same time span as human adolescents in their sexual development.  But an elephant is the exception to the rule.  So, the question remains, how did the elephant evolve, if it did, to become and remain the greatest land mammal of all?  How did the elephant survive, if it did, the same extinction that got rid of all of the dinosaurs?

(The upcoming book, The Dream of Mortal Life, Understanding Human Reality—A Final Warning To the Human Race, will specifically explain from where and how the first humans came to be, as well as all other species of plants and animals.)

Except for our mother or a similar adult, who provides us with food, water, and safety—until we can provide these things on our own—why is anyone else important in our individual existence?  What do we owe to anyone outside the person who raised us to adulthood?  How is any other human more important than our mother?  How is any other human who does not provide us with food, water, and safety important to us?  Why would these non-providers be of any importance to our individual existence?  The Real Truth is, they are not.

In order to physically survive upon Earth, once we learn how to do it for ourselves, we don’t need another human.  But we need other animals.  We need them for food, for clothing, and for safety.  Consider how safe you feel when you have a dog that alerts you to danger.

So, outside of providing another human with food, water, or safety, why do any of us feel that our existence and purpose is of any importance to another?  Others really don’t need us.

Consider what you spend your money on.  How much of your money do you use to buy food, water, and safety … as the basic necessities of sustaining your life?  (A huge mansion and expensive exotic foods are not physical necessities, so these larger expenses do not count in this specific consideration and analogy.)

You will find that you spend more money on things that you don’t need to survive than on those things that you do.

Why do we do this?

We do this because another human, who does not supply us with food, water, or safety, has convinced us that we need them … we need what they’re selling.  What these are selling is themselves.  They promote their own self-worth or importance as something that others need.

Anyone who receives money from another person, because the one has convinced another that he or she has something of value for the other, is full of PRIDE.  This pride is responsible for the lack of self-esteem and importance that others feel.  Convinced that you lack something that another has (outside of food, water, and safety), you don’t feel as important as the person who has convinced you that you lack something that they have.  Thus, you might feel less important than them.  Humble, you might actually take pride in knowing or associating with them.

The greatest evil ever perpetuated among us is from those who believe that they have something (outside of food, water, and safety) that others do not have.

Look at our world.  Look at what this pride in oneself has done to our society.  Look what happens when a person sells themselves as being more special, more gifted, more intelligent, more important than others.

Is gay pride good when the confrontation promoted by gay pride in parades, announcements, festivals, celebrations, and protests promote their pride while causing others discomfort?

Are the “Black Lives Matter” protests unifying human society, when there are a lot of individuals whose lives matter just as much as a person with darker skin?  Isn’t it pride in having darker skin that causes the problems?  Notwithstanding, it was pride in being white-skinned that caused and forced slavery and diminished peace, harmony, and equality in the human race.  It is PRIDE that promotes both of these racist ideologies, along with their fears and perceptions.

Does the idea of “Make America Great Again” promote peace and equality in our world?  As the Trump Administration proceeds with its agenda to make America greater than any other nation on Earth—which should be an earth of equal human beings—what is this pride going to accomplish in the long run?

On the other hand, the pride of those who oppose Trump’s agenda is more violent, more confrontational, more abusive to humanity than the ideology that got Trump legally elected according to the United States Constitution.  It appears that Trump supporters are actually less abusive and confrontational than those who oppose him.  All of this is because of PRIDE.

But above all human inventions, religion is the worst at promoting and sustaining PRIDE.

Will there ever be a time when we eliminate pride from our human natures and unite as one human family, as one race of humans, as people united under one government and one set of humane laws, regardless of individual pride?

We have failed in the past to eliminate pride from among us, and we are still failing today.

We live and abuse other humans.  We use them for our own selfish purposes to augment our self-esteem or self-importance and to create a purpose for our own lives, while not regarding what another might feel when used by us without them gaining anything from the interaction.

This is where the absolute evil starts:

When a person convinces another that they are more important … that they have something that another needs (outside of food, water, and safety).

Consider this important demarcation between those who use others for their own selfish purposes and those who do not.  In all of your interactions with others, ask yourself this question,

“Is this person providing me with food, water, or safety?”

If the person is not providing you with any of these things, then take a moment to consider why you are interacting with this person, what you want from them, and most importantly, what they want from you.  This brief analyzation of your interactions with others will open your eyes to the problem that is affecting the human race and causing its failure, where “failure” means our inability to live together in peace, harmony, and equity.

In an attempt to persuade early European American Christians to use their new freedom, their new land, and their unprecedented democratic form of government for the good of all, we wrote some religious scripture to counter the hypocrisy and evil of the Bible.  The purpose of the new scripture was to persuade them to treat all people equally, regardless of race, color, or religious belief.  We included a very important clue about PRIDE and how to establish a righteous and prosperous human society:

And there was a strict command throughout all the churches that there should be no persecutions among them, that there should be an equality among all men;

That they should let no pride nor haughtiness disturb their peace; that every man should esteem his neighbor as himself, laboring with their own hands for their support.

Yea, and all their priests and teachers should labor with their own hands for their support, in all cases save it were in sickness, or in much want; and doing these things, they did abound in the grace of God.

And there began to be much peace again in the land; and the people began to be very numerous, and began to scatter abroad upon the face of the earth, yea, on the north and on the south, on the east and on the west, building large cities and villages in all quarters of the land.

And the Lord did visit them and prosper them, and they became a large and wealthy people.  (Mosiah 27:3–7)

We then offered a clue about what would cause the downfall of humanity.  We called it “priestcraft.”  Priestcraft is when a person believes that it is okay that one person is more popular than another, that the more popular ones “ought not to labor with their hands, but that they ought to be supported by the people.”

And it came to pass that in the first year of the reign of Alma in the judgment-seat, there was a man brought before him to be judged, a man who was large, and was noted for his much strength.

And he had gone about among the people, preaching to them that which he termed to be the word of God, bearing down against the church; declaring unto the people that every priest and teacher ought to become popular; and they ought not to labor with their hands, but that they ought to be supported by the people.  (Alma 1:2–3)

Knowing the Real Truth of all things, we know that anyone can find out and understand the Real Truth about some things if the person is able to think about it long enough, and sincerely enough.  We included some Real Truth within this particular part of the storyline to help establish a demarcation between a True Messenger and a False Messenger.

Although a False Messenger might know portions of Real Truth and present these portions to others for support and money, a True Messenger knows all Real Truth and would never require the support or money from others, nor would a True Messenger solicit for support or money.  Consider this next part of the storyline and how we incorporated some Real Truths that Christopher has already shared with the world:

And he also testified unto the people that all mankind should be saved at the last day, and that they need not fear nor tremble, but that they might lift up their heads and rejoice; for the Lord had created all men, and had also redeemed all men; and, in the end, all men should have eternal life.

And it came to pass that he did teach these things so much that many did believe on his words, even so many that they began to support him and give him money.

And he began to be lifted up in the pride of his heart, and to wear very costly apparel, yea, and even began to establish a church after the manner of his preaching.  (Alma 1:4–6)

False Messengers use Real Truths that most people recognize as such to support themselves.  Consider what we wrote recently about Kimberly Davis Wallis.  We wrote this as an example of how a False Messenger uses Real Truth and a sincere attitude to gain popularity and support from others.  Kimberly Wallis would not know anything about Real Truth without what she once learned from Christopher.  Engaged in “priestesscraft, Kimberly began to use some portions of what she had learned from Christopher to deceive people into thinking that she was special, gifted, even going as far as claiming that she had special mentors like Christopher’s.

A few Greek philosophers (who were not popular among the people and therefore not supported with money) documented the introduction of this priestcraft into Greek society, once some became popular and wealthy through storytelling.  When the wealthy, popular ones were confronted by the less popular, more sincere philosophers, the less popular (who were not being supported by the people) were killed.  This part of Greek history would later be incorporated into the story of Yeshua (Jesus), where Jesus confounded the rich and popular and remained unaffected by riches and popularity as a True Messenger should be.  We incorporated this into our storyline:

And it came to pass as he was going, to preach to those who believed on his word, he met a man who belonged to the church of God, yea, even one of their teachers; and he began to contend with him sharply, that he might lead away the people of the church; but the man withstood him, admonishing him with the words of God.

Now the name of the man was Gideon; …  

Now, because Gideon withstood him with the words of God he was wroth with Gideon, and drew his sword and began to smite him. Now Gideon being stricken with many years, therefore he was not able to withstand his blows, therefore he was slain by the sword.  (Alma 1:7–9)

False Messengers are highly offended when their craft is exposed and challenged, and they often resort to physical confrontation.  Remember, the “craft” is the difference between a True and False Messenger.  When one gains popularity, support, and money from what they do, they are engaged in a “craft.” A True Messenger is the exact opposite.  True Messengers do not expect support and money from others, and they are FAR from being popular in the world.  In fact, because they confront all types of priestcrafts, they are largely rejected and hated by the majority of people, especially those deceived by False Messengers.

In our story, we put the False Messenger in front of a True Messenger and allowed the True Messenger to confound the False Messenger’s actions.  The story goes on to describe what happens when False Messengers use aspects of the Real Truth to deceive others for their own gain.  As you finish this part of the storyline of our Book of Mormon, consider the clues we included that condemn priestcraft.  We specifically explain that no person who is a True Messenger would put themselves above others in any way; that all people would have to work with their hands equally, as well as “priests”:

And when the priests left their labor to impart the word of God unto the people, the people also left their labors to hear the word of God.  And when the priest had imparted unto them the word of God they all returned again diligently unto their labors; and the priest, not esteeming himself above his hearers, for the preacher was no better than the hearer, neither was the teacher any better than the learner; and thus they were all equal, and they did all labor, every man according to his strength.  (Alma 1:26)

We introduced the basis of a righteous society and what it takes to sustain peace, harmony, and equity for all; what it takes to become a “wealthy,” but righteous group of people.  We used “church” to indicate a specific “group” of people:

And they did impart of their substance, every man according to that which he had, to the poor, and the needy, and the sick, and the afflicted; and they did not wear costly apparel, yet they were neat and comely.

And thus they did establish the affairs of the church; and thus they began to have continual peace again, notwithstanding all their persecutions.

And now, because of the steadiness of the church they began to be exceedingly rich, having abundance of all things whatsoever they stood in need—an abundance of flocks and herds, and fatlings of every kind, and also abundance of grain, and of gold, and of silver, and of precious things, and abundance of silk and fine-twined linen, and all manner of good homely cloth.

And thus, in their prosperous circumstances, they did not send away any who were naked, or that were hungry, or that were athirst, or that were sick, or that had not been nourished; and they did not set their hearts upon riches; therefore they were liberal to all, both old and young, both bond and free, both male and female, whether out of the church or in the church, having no respect to persons as to those who stood in need.

And thus they did prosper and become far more wealthy than those who did not belong to their church.  (Alma 1:27–31)

(For those interested, the rest of the story can be found in our Book of Mormon, Alma, chapter 1.)

Throughout the Book of Mormon, we reiterate the importance of equality and that everyone should work “with their own hands for their support.”  According to the storyline, a few years before the above incident between the True Messenger, Alma, and the False Messenger, Nehor, occurred, the exact same things were reiterated as the proper way to establish a group (“church”) of people in order to promote, peace, harmony, and equity:

And there was a strict command throughout all the churches that there should be no persecutions among them, that there should be an equality among all men;

That they should let no pride nor haughtiness disturb their peace; that every man should esteem his neighbor as himself, laboring with their own hands for their support.

Yea, and all their priests and teachers should labor with their own hands for their support, in all cases save it were in sickness, or in much want; and doing these things, they did abound in the grace of God.

And there began to be much peace again in the land; and the people began to be very numerous, and began to scatter abroad upon the face of the earth, yea, on the north and on the south, on the east and on the west, building large cities and villages in all quarters of the land.

And the Lord did visit them and prosper them, and they became a large and wealthy people.  (Mosiah 27:3–7)

No one … absolutely no one … has the right to convince you that their personal worth to humanity is more important than yours so that they do not have to “labor with their own hands for their own support.”  Every person who has convinced another that they have something that the human race needs (outside of food, water, and safety), contributes to the demise of the human race.

Until we finally learn that all people are completely equal; that food, water, and safety must be provided to all people equally and freely,

Priest- and Priestesscrafts will continue and will end up destroying human society once again.

Christopher is hated mostly by those who think they, personally, have something to offer to another that does not have to do with food, water, and safety.  Christopher has the power, the authority, and the ability to confound any such person.  He knows the Real Truth about human existence and the mortal human nature that has inhibited our mutual ability to survive as a species upon this Earth and become,

“A large and wealthy people.”

“We are true messengers. We exhort you to give strict heed to our counsel and teachings, and we will lead you in the way of life and salvation.”
