The hardest part of the Real Truth for most people to accept is the idea that there is no higher entity, no higher authority, nor any higher source of thought or existence other than a person’s own mind.
This is hard to accept because of how the self-worth of the individual has been pummeled and degraded from the time of a person’s birth into mortality, where “birth” is the moment when an advanced human’s brain connects to a mortal brain.
Upon connecting to an inferior brain, the mortal consciousness does not have access to the other parts of the advanced brain. Although the advanced Self can access the mortal experience at will, the mortal Self does not have access to the person’s advanced (real) experience. Just like our mortal dreams take place in a certain physical part of our mortal brain, our mortal experience takes part in a certain physical part of our advanced (true) brain. Our mortal life is simply a dream occurring in our advanced brain. Because our brain is highly advanced, the dreams it produces appear very real, even moreso than the realistic dreams that our mortal brains produce.
All that is needed to understand mortal life upon Earth is an understanding of the mortal dream. As hard as it might be to understand, this is the Real Truth about the mortal YOU.
Real Truth is things as they reallly are, as they have really been in the past, and how they will really be in the future. Real Truth is not opinion, speculation, theory, supposition, or a guess. Real Truth does not change. It cannot change.
YOU are the Real Truth. YOU are the only thing that matters in your existence. If YOU stopped existing, not only would there no longer be a YOU, there would no longer be a universe or any reality on any dimension or level of any kind … from YOUR perspective.
Over the years, we made many attempts to instill this concept into the minds of mortals by using religious terms.
Because the religious YOUs of the world have a certain idea and concept of what God is, of what Christ is, and of what the Holy Ghost is, we presented an outline in an effort to lead your mind to understand that the Holy Godhead (Father, Son, and Holy Ghost) are actually YOU. Joseph did the same thing through the symbolism of his temple endowment presentation.
Below are some of the relevant clues we used to help Christians understand this important Real Truth.
Because of their belief in Christ as their Lord and personal savior, we mandated our True Messenger to speak for the Lord, as if the Lord was speaking to people through him.
God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit are perceived and felt in the individual brain. These religious entities become a part of an individual’s cognitive paradigm because the person has chosen to believe that they are real entities outside of the individual.
Most people who choose to believe have been taught to believe. These religious entities are not a part of a person’s cognitive paradigm who does not believe in them. To a person who has had no religious upbringing, the idea of God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit is incomprehensible, and for many, absurd.
The simple way of knowing if something is Real Truth or not —where Real Truth has always existed the same for everyone, and that everything that is not Real Truth is learned (taught/inculcated) from one’s experience in mortal life—is ask a little child.
There is no little child who can understand the Christian concept of God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit. But if one were to explain to the little child,
YOU are in charge of YOU. YOU are the ultimate authority of your own experience. YOU tell YOU what to do. YOU are God.
YOU can save yourself from pain and sorrow if you avoid the things that cause YOU to feel pain and sorrow according to your own experience. YOU are your own Savior. YOU are the Son, the Redeemer of your world.
Your brain forms thoughts that make you feel things. Some thoughts create a physical feeling for YOU that is good. Some thoughts create a physical feeling for YOU that feels uncomfortable. YOU are the Holy Ghost.
To a Christian, teaching a child that the child is actually the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost is blasphemy. To a non-religious person it makes perfect sense.
So, what makes more sense to a little child?
What would make more sense to a person who comes from another planet where there are none of the religious beliefs associated with mortal Earth … from a planet where humans have evolved over millions of years into the perfect human society … no war, no competition, no pain or sorrow, just good human living?
Let’s suppose that there exists such a planet somewhere else in the universe. Let’s give the planet a name. How about: Kolob.
Let’s patronize science and say that life evolved on Kolob until the human life form had complete control over the planet.
Cooperating together, humans learned to speak the same language and live under one government: the United People of Kolob.
Through human cooperation and the advancements of hundreds of thousands of years of technological and industrial revolution, human life flourished. There was no death, pain, nor suffering. All humans were equal in each person’s ability to experience happiness according to their desires of happiness.
Let’s say that Kolob was situated so that when it rotated on its axis, it took 1000 Earth years for the sun to rise and set on Kolob. Now, we cannot equate the length of a day to the size (mass) of the planet, because in our own solar system, Jupiter (300 times the size of Earth) only has a 10 hour day. It doesn’t matter how big or small a planet is, the length of a day (from sunrise to sunset) is always determined by the planets tilt towards its sun.
On Kolob, humans evolved in their understanding of DNA and bioengineering to the point that they could create new human infant bodies that would never get sick and never die of old age. In fact, Kolob’s advanced scientific techniques allowed for the creation of the perfect human body for Kolob’s environment.
People living on Kolob didn’t have to sleep. If you don’t have to sleep, then having your planet tilt away from the sun to create nighttime doesn’t seem reasonable. Kolob’s scientists actually learned how to manipulate the tilt of Kolob according to the wants and needs of the Kolobites (that’s what we will call the people who live on Kolob).
The Kolobites had abilities and technologies that would seem impossible to Earthlings living in the 21st Century.
Imagine a person living in the 21st century going back in time, and taking a lot of 21st Century technology with them, and living in the 6th century b.c.e. Or perhaps consider a person from the 21st century waking up in the 6th century b.c.e. without any modern technology to prove they were from the future, but had just their memories and experience of living thousands of years in the future. Would the person be able to explain to the ancient Greeks about life upon Earth in the future? Would the person be able to convince anyone of the Real Truth that they know? How would the Greek scientists and philosophers receive them?
What if the Greek scientists and philosophers got paid for how much more they knew (or thought they knew) than the other Greeks living in 6th century b.c.e.; and the person from the 21st century started telling the people that their scientists and philosophers didn’t really know anything about the Real Truth and nature of things … how things really are, how things really were, and how things really will be in the future?
What if the personal self-worth of the scientists and philosophers was based solely on what they thought they knew, and upon how well they could convince other Greeks that they knew things that made them appear smarter than everyone else, and for which they were paid?
If you would like to know what it might be like for a 20th century person to wake up in the 6th century, without any modern technology, but with only his knowledge of thousands of years into the future, you might want to ask Christopher, our public True Messenger. Christopher “awoke” in the 20th century with the knowledge of his real life on Kolob (according to our analogy presented here).
According to this analogy—for want of a better way to explain the Real Truth about who we are—we are Kolobites.
Christopher is not. Christopher is an Earthling, with an Earthling’s body, but with a brain that can access all things in his past, and also in his real present, since he is actually Kolobite having a dream that he is an Earthling.
The Real Truth, although simple, is not the way we have presented the analogy above.
Here is the Real Truth:
Earth was once a Kolob-like planet. Earth was created by Kolobites in order to serve their advanced emotional needs. Creating an environment to which to escape from time to time can be understood in how modern humans go to places in order to “get away for awhile.” A person needs to “get away for awhile” because of an emotional responsive need to their daily life.
We will explain everything that there is to know about when Earth was a Kolob-like planet in our upcoming book, The Dream of Mortal Life—Understanding Human Reality, A Final Warning to the Human Race. For now, for the sake of teaching Earthlings on their level, similar to how a person from the 20th century would be forced to teach the Greeks living in 6th century b.c.e., let’s concede to and continue our analogy.
Living on Kolob for billions of years as an advanced human, Christopher woke up in Earth’s 20th century.
Christopher does not know all of the false beliefs, opinions, speculations, theories, suppositions, or a guesses that 21st century scientists, philosophers, scholars, and priests know and present as truths. Christopher only knows those to which he was exposed while growing up to adulthood. But at 25 years of age, all of a sudden, Christopher was able to remember that he isn’t actually an Earthling, but a Kolobite.
Realizing that that if he told people he was actually from Kolob he would be mocked and ridiculed, Christopher didn’t tell anyone. He knew what happened to other Kolobites who woke up during different time periods of the past and tried to tell people about Kolob. All of them were killed. Christopher didn’t want to be killed. But when he realized that he was a Kolobite and not actually from Earth, Christopher began to live a much different lifestyle than what he was used to when he thought he was only an Earthling.
In 1991, we officially introduced ourselves to Christopher for the first time. Since we are Kolobites, we knew what Christopher knew from his memories and ability to access his reality on Kolob. But having lived upon Earth a lot longer than Christopher had, we knew about all of the false beliefs, opinions, speculations, theories, suppositions, or guesses that 21st century scientists, philosophers, scholars, and priests know and present as truths. We knew how these Earthling cognitive paradigms had developed over time.
We began to teach Christopher what we knew.
A “cognitive paradigm” is a person’s most fundamental core beliefs. These core beliefs are the root cause that affect a person’s attitude and other beliefs throughout the person’s life. These paradigms affect a person’s immediate thoughts. A person’s cognitive paradigm causes the person to be happy and is responsible for a person’s emotional disturbances and distress. The scientific community created the term “cognitive paradigm” and has been using it for many years in researching how humans process information from the environment to form the thought that precedes the way a person acts.
As Kolobites, had we revealed ourselves to the world, we would have met the same fate as those Earthlings who awoke upon Earth in an Earthling body but knowing that they were actually living on Kolob and dreaming about Earth. We would have been killed.
Or at least, the scientists, philosophers, scholars, and priests who pretend to know and present truths would have done everything in their power to kill us. Why would their followers listen to us anyway? How could we possibly convince one of their followers to listen to us when their followers’ self-worth was taught by their leaders?
Hey, we’re from Kolob, a perfect planet where the perfect human society exists. Well, actually, we’re from your past, billions of years ago when Earth was first created by people living in another reality. Well, actually, we’re also from your future. We are from a perfect society in Earth’s future. We lived in the perfect human society, one that will eventually form upon Earth, but only if you listen to us and learn from us on how to set up this perfect society. If you don’t listen to us, then you will end up destroying yourselves and not evolve into the perfect society. And if you destroy yourselves today, you’ll also destroy us, because we are from your future. Logically, destroying Earth today destroys the possibility of Earth’s future where we lived.
To save ourselves, we must save you. We are your savior. We can save you but only if you’re willing to save yourselves, because you have to do all the work in saving yourselves. Thus, you are your own saviors.
You are Christ.
No one would believe us. Few believe Christopher, our public True Messenger.
Christopher’s critics and enemies are those who lose personal value and self-worth because of the things that Christopher says, which are the same things that we would say—he being our Messenger.
Christopher was successful at luring Christians to our work, this Marvelous Work and a Wonder®, but only when he did it our way. “Our way” was the only way that we could breach the closed minds of the religious. To do so, we became “the Lord.”
Our True Messenger said the following to the people who believed in a Lord and Savior:
“Verily, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul who forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments, shall see my face and know that I am;” (D&C 93:1)
Since there were none who actually “saw the face of the Lord,” it follows that there were none who “forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments.”
If one were doing the right things, that one would “see my face and know that I am.”
Although a few lied and said that they “saw the Lord” in order to get others to value them and be a part of their religious movement, none actually saw the face of the Lord, because none of them saw us—those “holy men reserved unto [the Lord]” that no one but a few have seen and “know of.”
If you haven’t seen our face, you are “under sin” and need to repent.
“Wherefore, I will that all men shall repent, for all are under sin, except those which I have reserved unto myself, holy men that ye know not of.” (D&C 49:8)
It was our intent to tell the people that all of their works, all of their beliefs, everything that they thought they knew and believed was keeping them from “seeing [the true God’s] face and knowing that [God is].”
Our True Messenger saw our face and knows exactly who we are.
We represent the Real Truth of all things because we know the Real Truth of all things.
We are the true light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
We are in the Father, and the Father in us, and the Father and we are one—the Father because we know the Real Truth of all things, or rather have been given of the Father’s fulness. We are the Son because we are in the world among the sons of men with a tabernacle of flesh.
In the world, and having received a fullness of our Father, our works are plainly manifest because we know the Real Truth of all things.
We were also in the beginning with the Father; that which is Spirit, even the Spirit of truth; And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come.
Thus are we the Real Truth.
And you, too, can become as we are, the Real Truth. You can become one with us, with the Father, with the Son, and with the Holy Spirit, which is nothing more than a “knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come.”
You cannot be who we are unless you have a complete (a fullness) of the Real Truth—knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come.
And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning. The wicked one is the one who hears and answers your prayers and does not to teach you the Real Truth—and give you a knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come—but deceives you and takes you captive. This wicked one is the God of this world, the only God who hears and answers the prayers of the spiritually minded, who are deceived.
“O, my beloved brethren, remember the awfulness in transgressing against that [Real Truth], and also the awfulness of yielding to the enticings of that cunning one. Remember, to be carnally-minded is death, and to be spiritually-minded is life eternal.” (BOM, 2 Nephi 9:39)
How do you know if you’re following the wicked one?
How do you know if you are following a man or a woman, who claims to be of God, but who is actually one of the ministers of the wicked one?
It is easy to discern if you are following the wicked one or not. If a person does not know the “mysteries of God in full”; if the person does not know the Real Truth of all things—if the person does not have a knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come—then this person has the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning.
“Ye were also in the beginning with the Father; that which is Spirit, even the Spirit of truth;
And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;
And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning.
The Spirit of truth is of God. I am the Spirit of truth, and John bore record of me, saying: He received a fulness of truth, yea, even of all truth;” (D&C 93:23-26)
Because of the wicked one who has been lying to you from the beginning and introducing you to the philosophies of men mingled with scripture (i.e., religion), you have not received a fulness of truth … yea, even of all truth.
The true God knows “all truth.” Wouldn’t God know all truth? And if one receives direction and information from the true God, wouldn’t it be a fulness of truth … yea, even of all truth?
So, it’s very easy to tell if you’re being deceived by another person who claims to know God, who claims to have seen God’s face: has the person received a fulness of truth, yea of all truth.
Try the person.
Can the person explain to you how the earth formed, how the universe formed? What are the stars, galaxies, and other planets? Why do they exist?
Can the person explain to you why there were dinosaurs? Why there aren’t any dinosaurs now?
Can the person explain to you why the barren Sahara Desert exists in the Eastern Hemisphere while the verdant Amazon Forest exists in the Western Hemisphere? How did one area of the earth become barren and the other verdant?
Where did long stem roses come from?
Where did the virus that causes aids come from?
Does your religious leader, your man or woman called by God to be His voice for you, understand synthetic virology?
We do. Christopher does.
But you don’t. Neither can you answer these questions. Neither can your leaders, nor your scientists, nor your philosophers. None of those who have learned from the wicked know how to explain the Real Truth of all things to you.
And if you are not taught the Real Truth, what are you learning?
If you’re being taught an opinion, speculation, theory, supposition, or a guess, you are being held captive by the wicked one, caught in his chains of deception and led by his will down to destruction.
Is the world becoming a better place or not? Is the world being led in the right direction or not? It’s either being led to salvation or destruction.
Is the knowledge that you are receiving from the wicked one making a better world or not? Are the opinions, speculations, theories, suppositions, or guesses making the world a better place? Or is everything that the world knows, everything that a mortal thinks he or she knows, which isn’t actually Real Truth, leading us to an inevitable destruction?
“It is given unto many to know the mysteries of God; nevertheless they are laid under a strict command that they shall not impart only according to the portion of his word which he doth grant unto the children of men, according to the heed and diligence which they give unto him.
And therefore, he that will harden his heart, the same receiveth the lesser portion of the word; and he that will not harden his heart, to him is given the greater portion of the word, until it is given unto him to know the mysteries of God until he know them in full.
And they that will harden their hearts, to them is given the lesser portion of the word until they know nothing concerning his mysteries; and then they are taken captive by the devil, and led by his will down to destruction. Now this is what is meant by the chains of hell.” (BOM, Alma 12:9-11)
Who is this wicked one?
Who is God?
If YOU are God, then it follows that YOU are also the wicked one!
The difference between YOU as God and YOU as the wicked one is how much Real Truth YOU know.
You either “know the mysteries of God [Real Truth] until you know them in full,” or you are given things that don’t teach you anything about this Real Truth, and then you are led by your own will down to destruction.
We tried our best to open your minds, “according to the portion of his word which [you believed God] doth grant unto the children of men, according to the heed and diligence which they give unto him.”
We gave you scripture.
We taught you by that in which you believed.
According to the way that YOUR wicked one taught you, we tried to open your mind to the Real Truth about YOU:
“Ye were also in the beginning with the Father; that which is Spirit, even the Spirit of truth;
And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;
And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning.
The Spirit of truth is of God. I am the Spirit of truth, and John bore record of me, saying: He received a fulness of truth, yea, even of all truth;
And no man receiveth a fulness unless he keepeth his commandments.
He that keepeth his commandments receiveth truth and light, until he is glorified in truth and knoweth all things.
Man was also in the beginning with God. Intelligence, or the light of truth, was not created or made, neither indeed can be.
All truth is independent in that sphere in which God has placed it, to act for itself, as all intelligence also; otherwise there is no existence.
Behold, here is the agency of man, and here is the condemnation of man; because that which was from the beginning is plainly manifest unto them, and they receive not the light.
And every man whose spirit receiveth not the light is under condemnation.” (D&C 23-32)
What is your existence if it is not to act independently “in that sphere in which you have been placed by God” … where you have placed your Self, even in this mortal life? Is it not so that YOU can act for YOURSELF? Is this not YOUR agency, your free will?
It is your agency, your choice to believe us or not. We will plainly manifest unto you all things, even the fullness of Real Truth [that which was from the beginning].
But will you receive this light and live? Or reject it and die?
With purpose and good intent we conditioned receiving a fullness of understanding of all things [so that you could be glorified in the Real Truth, knowing all things] on “keeping his commandments.”
“And no man receiveth a fulness unless he keepeth his commandments. He that keepeth his commandments receiveth truth and light, until he is glorified in truth and knoweth all things.” (D&C 93:27-28)
But then you might ask,
“What are his commandments? I have not seen the face of God. God has not spoken to me and given me any commandments. What are his commandments that I might know them and keep them in order to receive of his fullness until I am glorified in truth and know all things?”
We included these important conditions so that you would ask the one from whom you received these things. You received these things from a True Messenger who knows the Real Truth of all things; who knows the mind of God, and the mind of the wicked one. A True Messenger is the only one who knows what “his” commandments are, the ones that you must obey in order to know the truth of all things and be saved from eternal salvation.
Ask a True Messenger.
If you’re an LDS/Mormon, especially, listen to the final words of advice that you hear from the character Adam during your temple endowment presentation. Adam does not tell you to follow your leaders. Adam says,
“These are true messengers. I exhort you to give strict heed to their counsel and teachings, and they will lead you in the way of life and salvation.”
Adam could not find the Real Truth by himself. It is impossible for a mortal brain to access the Real Truth known by God, known by YOU since the beginning. It takes a person whose mortal brain has been allowed to access their actual advanced brain to teach you what this True Messenger knows.
When he found himself in the lone and dreary world (mortal life) and Adam prayed, what did he ask for? Did he ask for personal revelation and understanding? No. He asked for messengers of the Father … of Real Truth.
You will have verification that a True Messenger is actually a True Messenger of the true God and not one of the world’s wicked ones, because what he tells you will be the most logical thing you could possibly hear in response to your inquiry. A True Messenger’s answers make sense.
People are angry because a True Messenger’s answers make more sense than the things that the wicked one has taught them … from which they receive their value … the pay they receive from the wicked one.
So, if only a True Messenger can answer your questions and tell you what the commandments are that you must obey until you are “glorified in truth and knoweth all things,” what are these commandments?
All commandments given by a True Messenger are based on two main principles:
Learn To Love Yourself, And Then Love Your Neighbor As You Do Yourself. Do unto others as they would have you do unto them.
Anything more or less than this is from the wicked one.
Listening to our Message through Christopher and the world will have the correct solution to end poverty upon Earth. There is no other solution that will work and still comply with the proper “agency of man.”
There was no poverty and inequality in the beginning.
Ending poverty is the commandment that must be obeyed. We have given the world the “light” to solve it. God knows how to solve it. Because God is the light of yesterday and can be the light of tomorrow as long as the earth exists in the sphere and for the purpose for which it has been created.
The “light” that lit the earth when poverty did not exist is the same “light” that will illuminate the earth tomorrow to end it. It is the light of the sun reflected to a darkened world by the moon.
There is only one beautiful thing about our current world:
It is the light of the moon that illuminates the world with the same light of yesterday and tomorrow.
Do not listen to the opinions, speculations, theories, suppositions, or guesses of any person who does not know how to solve poverty … who does not have this light in them.
YOU are God. YOU have this light in YOU. YOU have the power to end poverty.
To end poverty, YOU must first believe that YOU as the wicked one created it, and YOU as God can solve it.
To see YOU as God, you must increase your self-worth by leaning more about the Real Truth.
All Real Truth that we need to know in order to progress as individuals, both in this world and the world to come, we already knew as little children. Everything else we learn while mortal (i.e., all of the world’s knowledge in science, religion, philosophy, or from whatever other source) outside of the Real Truth cannot and will not help us progress individually in this world or in the world to come.
Unfortunately, the easiest way that mortals have learned to create value for themselves is to devalue others. Mortals do this in many ways, most of which mortals do not see as a negative devaluation of another because the act provides value to them personally.
Is it a good thing that an athlete wins over another? Maybe for the athlete, by not for the person who got beat. The value of the winner increased by decreasing the value of the loser. How can this be good for society?
If you give your unsolicited opinion to another while another is in the act of doing something according to their free will, you are devaluing the person in an attempt to bring value to yourself.
Nothing is more annoying to most people than being around a person who is constantly interrupting and giving their opinion, or being around one who interrupts to relate their own experience when another is relating theirs.
“My daughter and I went to the mall to buy a dress for her and she slipped on the ice … [interrupted by another]”
“Yeah, me and my son were walking into his school when I slipped.”
What if we all looked at the world as the ongoing experience of another, where we are just a visitor in their world? They are the God, the Supreme Authority and Overseer of the planet. Their word, their needs, their will, supersedes everyone else’s. However, each of us, as visitors, are not forced to hang around them. We can leave anytime we want so that we don’t need to cater to their word, their needs, or their will. But each time we encounter a person, we realize that it is their world, their experience, not ours.
When we think of a kind person, a humble person, or a considerate person, it is one who listens without giving their opinion. It is someone who doesn’t interrupt but seems genuinely interested in “us,” in what we are saying, in what we want. These are the types of people that we all like to be around. So think about it. Are you this type of person? Are you the type of person that others want to be around? Are you seen as a kind person, a humble person, or a considerate person?
In most cases, everything about the mortal world that mortals believe is good, is actually bad for the human race because of how it devalues someone.
Everything is turned upside down. Even this religious phrase: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
It should be: Do unto others as they would have you do unto them.
If you find happiness in not drinking, for example, then the wicked one’s counsel of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” would compel you to outlaw drinking. But if you did to them as they would have you do unto them, then you would make it easier for those who receive happiness from drinking to drink.
There’s a big difference between the wicked one’s counsel and the true God’s.
Consider everything that is done under the sun that gives value to a mortal. The things that humans consider living a good, successful life, are they good? How much good was all that Steve Jobs did while mortal, all the money he made from what he did, but he still couldn’t save himself from death. Was what Jobs did good for humanity? No. Is the world a better place because of Job’s life. No.
The same can be said about every mortal who gains value from what they do and have done during mortality. If this world were becoming a better place to live, then it could be said that what was done in the past and what is being done today is good. Because the world is worsening with each passing year, “all things that are done under the sun” and “all things that were done under the sun” are bad for humanity. This is just simple logic.
(NOTE: The Real Truth is, a True Messenger wrote the book of Ecclesiastics. It was the same True Messenger who wrote Isaiah. It was he who now writes for us, albeit in another lifetime. Ecclesiastics was his way of complaining. It contains a phenomenal message of Real Truth.)
There is nothing that the world thinks is good that can be good if things are getting worse for the human race.
Commenting about the current situation in the United States, moreso concerning its leader, Christopher sent us a note using a quote from one of his favorite parts of scripture, Ecclesiastes:
“The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools. Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.
“Yeah, we all know who “ruleth among fools,” but the Fucks don’t realize they’re fools! Sorry this fucking world won’t hear ‘the words of wise men in quiet.’ The Fucks don’t have a clue about the source of Ecclesiastes. But I do! Thanks at least. But anyways … Sigh … 😦 “
Most of the Old Testament was written by Greek writers commissioned by Hebrew leaders to write scripture for their followers. A writer will write whatever you want him to write if you pay him enough and he doesn’t have to put his name on what he writes.
Consider the Bible. What is its underlying message? It is:
God loves you when you do what God says. God “says” what is written in the Bible or through His chosen leaders.
Who wrote the Bible? God’s chosen leaders.
But how do the people know that what God tells His leaders is the same thing that the leaders tell the people? Why doesn’t God talk to each person, individually or as a group, not through another, but in person?
Dad: Junior, you will do what God says or you can go live somewhere else!
Junior: God hasn’t said anything to me. But if He does, I’ll be sure to listen and do exactly what He says.
Dad: You will do what God has told us to do through His holy word, the Bible.
Junior: What part of God’s word in the Bible should I do? How about the part where God commands us to destroy people? If a country doesn’t make peace with America, and wants war, then should I join the military and help “besiege it”? And when we’ve won the war, should I still follow God’s word and “smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword, But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the Lord thy God hath given thee.” That’s God’s word in Deuteronomy and throughout the Old Testament, Dad. It kind of sounds like what ISIS does. Now I get it! ISIS is following God properly! [On his way out the front door.] Allahu Akbar, Dad!
Dad: [Yelling behind the son.] We have modern prophets, seers, and revelators who speak for God today. These are God’s true leaders! We must listen to them! The Bible is about another people in the past. We need God’s guidance today!
Son: [Stops. Turns around and faces his dad.] YOU need God’s guidance today! YOU need others to tell you what to do, how to live, what to think. I do not need God’s guidance, especially not from a bunch of men who haven’t a clue what it is like to be me.
In order to keep God’s commandments, you must first know God. Once you know God, you will know yourself and realize that you must keep YOUR commandments.
Until you know the true God and can follow his commandments,
We exhort you to give strict heed to our counsel and teachings, and we will lead you in the way of life and salvation.
