Our work, a Marvelous Work and a Wonder® (MWAW), uses the term “Real Truth” to define the information that we present to the world.
We have defined “Real Truth” as things as they really were in the past, as they really are today, and as they really will be in the future.
We use the adverb “really” to qualify the information that we give the world as only things that exist in our world (things that can be seen, heard, tasted, smelled, touched, and felt [i.e., feelings and thoughts]), as opposed to what is said or imagined to be true or possible.
The “Real Truth” is a word group that expresses our information. The adverb “really” further expresses a relation of place, time, circumstance, manner, cause, degree, etc., that our information has to the human experience.
In the past, our True Messenger has explained that to recognize the Real Truth, one need only use common sense. For a time, we allowed our True Messenger to associate a person’s recognition of the absolute truthfulness of the Real Truth (our information) with common sense, as it (common sense) is defined as “sound judgment derived from experience rather than study.” Possessing common sense is a quality that all humans want, a prideful indication that induces value and worth of one’s own opinion and belief.
Unfortunately, as it is defined, common sense is neither common nor is it “sound judgment derived from experience,” because most people’s experiences are very limited.
If “sound judgment” was common, then most people wouldn’t do the things they do today that caused them problems in the past or that they know will cause them same problems in the future. A simple example of this is when someone drinks, gets drunk, has a hangover, realizes from experience that drinking is bad for their health and life, yet does it over and over again. When one studies about the effects of drinking alcohol, one is convinced that it is bad. When one experiences a hangover or health deterioration, one knows that it is bad from firsthand experience.
Therefore, in the true sense of the word group, “common sense”, where a person makes a “sound judgment [to drink, using our example] derived from experience rather than study,” people do not exercise common sense as it is orthodoxly defined.
There is a lot about the human experience that has been studied. This is the purpose of science, where the act of science is to study what has been published by others (through their experience), add their information to the data you collect through your own experience, and then utilize the scientific methodology to form personal hypotheses, deciding what you believe to be true and not true. However, there is an important caveat to forming your personal truth in this manner.
If a great number of people come up with the same conclusion as you, this does not mean that because a lot of people agree with you, then your truth must be absolute truth. The idea that common sense is established when a great many people have made the same conclusion has been proven false throughout history. Many accepted scientific theories and hypotheses have been proven wrong by later scientists.
Even scientists are limited in their personal experience, many ceding to past scientists in order to establish their own truths.
The Real Truth is the absolute truth, something science has failed to establish using its framework for interpreting, systematizing, and predicting nature based on empirical observations. As more people upon Earth are exposed to and study science, and as more have the time to apply scientific methodology to their personal study, the harder it is for even science to establish an indisputable fact. (Someone proposes a theory and another debunks it over time.)
One of the main problems with mortal common sense is that most people do not have the time in this world to comprehensively and thoroughly study every decision they make before they do it. But the other major problem with common sense is the fact that most people have very limited personal experience from which to draw a conclusion of sound judgment.
Most people get up in the morning and do the same thing today that they did yesterday, which will be the same thing that they do tomorrow. Most people living in the world do not travel more than 50 miles from where they were first born. Most people are not exposed to any other culture or tradition other than those with which they were born and raised.
The current mortal experience is like it is because of the lack of personal experience required for a person to make a proper sound judgment. Most people act on human impulse according to their innate and learned human nature. People rely on what they believe to be true or have been taught is true.
How often does a person begin the presentation of their personal opinion (i.e., personal truth) with,
Who says? Where did the person get the information upon which the person is basing the opinion that he or she is about to give? Who are “they”?
It is the lack of true common sense, again, which is complicated by the lack of personal experience, that keeps a person from accepting the Real Truth. No one wants to think that they are wrong; that they have been wrong their entire life. Mortals think that being wrong is being stupid and that they are not as intelligent as others who they believe are not wrong.
But in reality, who is right and who is wrong?
The Real Truth presented through the MWAW solves this dilemma:
Everyone is right. Which makes everyone wrong.®
Until June of 2012, the information that we presented to the world was based on the common sense of a religious person: one who holds the truth they have been told by another to be true. This religious common sense was derived from the person’s religious experiences and by only studying religiously based material. This can be considered more of a faith-based common sense.
To understand why we used faith-based “sound judgment derived from experience rather than study,” we need to explain what we are trying to accomplish through the MWAW.
There is only one purpose for our work, a Marvelous Work and a Wonder®:
Eliminate poverty and inequality in order to afford each human living upon Earth with the ability to experience more of life upon Earth (that which the mortal experience offers in both things and other people), so that each has the same opportunity and the same amount of time to fairly establish one’s own common sense.
As long as a person is forced to use their time upon Earth to work in order to allow another person not to work (become wealthy so that he or she doesn’t have to work), the enslaved will never establish the potential of their own common sense. Physically tired from the same day in and day out drudgery, our human desire to recognize our own individual importance forces us to rely on someone else to tell us what is true and what is not. People simply do not have the time or energy to engage in experiences that will enhance their common sense (i.e., sound judgment derived from their own experience).
The current state of our world is a result of common sense.
To change our world into the experience that it was meant to be, we must change common sense, to individual sense. With individual sense, the things that we agree upon in common will be closer to absolute truth … to the Real Truth. If someone tells us some thing and we trust and believe what the person says about the thing, because we don’t have the time or the energy to investigate the thing for ourselves, we become part of that person’s reality. We sacrifice our individual Self and our own ideas and sound judgments in support of another’s.
If we had the time and emotional energy to ponder on what another person tells us is true, and we pursued our own “sound judgment” based on our own rigorous study of the thing, more than likely we would conclude that what the person is telling us is not true, but dependent solely on what “They say.”
“They” are anyone or anything that is outside of our own mind. What “They say” cannot be trusted. Because what “They say” came from what “They heard” from someone else who said “They say.”
If someone tells us some thing, the first question in our mind should be:
What personal experience does this person actually have in the thing?
What if we could find a person who had actually experienced a lot of things? Wouldn’t we tend to listen to this person over someone who hasn’t experienced very much?
What if we told you that we have been conscious on Earth since the beginning of time, since the First Dispensation of Human Time that commenced billions of years ago; and that during the time of our existence, we never slept?
Sleeping places one’s mind in an unconscious state where things occur in one’s environment of which the one sleeping is not aware.
What if we told you that we have existed upon Earth without sleeping ever since the first human lived upon Earth?
Since most of mortal life is boring and uneventful— because new citizens to Earth take a lot of time getting used to living upon Earth and dealing with its laws and environment—we were able to observe everything that was happening upon Earth. We understand everything that has happened on Earth and how it happened because we do not sleep and can patiently watch things develop.
Our mortal immortality doesn’t make sense, does it?
Your common sense tells you that it is impossible for anyone to live billions of years. But is this personal conclusion of truth based on “sound judgment derived from your own experience,” or is it based on what “They say”?
Have you ever met us?
“They say” that it is impossible for a human to exist for that long based on their scientific conclusions, which, again, is a conclusion based on the scientific literature that “they” have studied, which includes current relevant theories and scientific findings, prepared detailed hypotheses, designed formal methodologies, collected data, and an employed complex statistical analyses from which “they” drew their conclusion.
But “They” have never met us. Therefore, what personal empirical evidence do they have to make their common sense conclusion?
Based on their common sense, we do not exist because they have never met us. Yet, even this sense is flawed because they have never met the other billions of people living upon the same planet as they do.
Maybe if we arrived from, let’s say, an advanced spaceship and landed it on the front lawn of the U.S. White House. Then, they could see that we actually exist because they see the ship and see us enter the White House to talk to the U.S. President. Why would we come from another more advanced planet specifically to speak with the U.S. President above any other mortal upon Earth? Is this not what the world’s common sense would expect?
Let’s say that we did.
We landed our spaceship near the White House, entered and spoke with President Donald Trump for many hours, left the meeting, got back into our spaceship and left Earth. Would Congress believe what we told Donald Trump? Would the religious leaders of Earth accept what Donald Trump would tell them about religion, about nationality and patriotism, or anything else we might have told Trump about humanity?
But what if we came in a spaceship and spoke to the entire world at the same time?
Would you believe what we said then?
Is there technology on the earth today that would allow just one of us to speak to the entire world at the same time? Yes.
Was this technology available 100 years ago?
So in just 100 years, your mortal common sense allowed you to find a way that an individual person could speak to the entire world, right?
What if we, being highly advanced humans from a much more advanced human civilization on another planet explained that we had the same communication technology that you have currently hundreds of thousands of years in our past, but have since refined the technology so that one could speak to an entire planet through the energy patterns of a person’s mind … through their thoughts?
Through this advanced technology, the person didn’t necessarily have to listen to what was being broadcast to the rest of the world, unless the person tuned in their mind to the broadcast.
Let’s say that we came to Earth in our spaceship and hid somewhere where no one saw us arrive and no one could see our spaceship and we started to use our advanced technology to broadcast a message to the entire world. Since our advanced communication technology does not exist yet in your world, you would not yet be familiar with the broadcast energy that your minds were receiving.
By using your current common sense, wouldn’t the following scenario be close to what the people of Earth would experience today:
“And it came to pass that while they were thus conversing one with another, they heard a voice as if it came out of heaven; and they cast their eyes round about, for they understood not the voice which they heard; and it was not a harsh voice, neither was it a loud voice; nevertheless, and notwithstanding it being a small voice it did pierce them that did hear to the center, insomuch that there was no part of their frame that it did not cause to quake; yea, it did pierce them to the very soul, and did cause their hearts to burn.” (BOM, 3 Nephi 11:3)
Because the people of Earth do not know or have any personal experience with our advanced communication technology, it would be highly unlikely that they would recognize the sound, although the technology physically alerts them to the fact that a broadcast is beginning. Not being a familiar way that the people receive communication from another human, we try again:
“And it came to pass that again they heard the voice, and they understood it not.” (BOM, 3 Nephi 11:4)
Realizing that the people are not accustomed to our advanced form of communication, we decide that instead of broadcasting our message directly to them, we would communicate with them the only way that they were accustomed to and comfortable with: through another mortal person whom they could see, hear, touch, smell, and taste …. if they wanted.
“And again the third time they did hear the voice, and did open their ears to hear it; and their eyes were towards the sound thereof; and they did look steadfastly towards heaven, from whence the sound came.
And behold, the third time they did understand the voice which they heard; and it said unto them:
Behold, [Our True Messenger]—hear ye him.” (BOM, 3 Nephi 11:5-7)
What kind of Messenger would one be to whom the people could relate?
If it were one of us mortal immortals, the people would be more interested in our immortality and in our technology than they would be in our message. In awe, the people of the world would listen to our message, possibly believing it because of our physical presence among them. However, because of our manner of speech and our advanced intelligence, it would be very difficult for us to convey the true meaning of our message in a way that would penetrate the common sense of your world.
Our True Messenger would not only have to understand our language, but he would first have to understand our message.
Wouldn’t it be reasonable, that in order to ensure that the people actually wanted our message for their Earth experience, then we should not use any awe inspiring means or technology in delivering our message? To protect their free agency and allow each individual to see their Self as equal to us, thus protecting the underlying purpose of our message, we needed the appropriate type of Messenger.
Would it change the world, perhaps, if we did do something supernatural, even according to the people’s beliefs, and had “a Man descend out of heaven” to teach them?
Would it change the world for the better for a long period of time?
“And it came to pass, as they understood they cast their eyes up again towards heaven; and behold, they saw a Man descending out of heaven; and he was clothed in a white robe; and he came down and stood in the midst of them; and the eyes of the whole multitude were turned upon him, and they durst not open their mouths, even one to another, and wist not what it meant, for they thought it was an angel that had appeared unto them.” (BOM, 3 Nephi 11:8)
Would this supernatural event change the world for the better? Or would the world be awed by the experience only to disregard the Messenger’s message and create even a worse world than what existed before “an angel … appeared unto them”?
Perhaps the people would learn from the experience so that,
“… there were no contentions and disputations among them, and every man did deal justly one with another.
And they had all things common among them; therefore there were not rich and poor, bond and free, but they were all made free, and partakers of the heavenly gift.” (BOM, 4 Nephi 1:2-3)
Would it help if we revealed ourselves to the world and used our advanced technology to heal the sick, raise the dead, cause the lame to walk, the blind to receive their sight, the deaf to hear, and do all manner of miracles?
Let’s incorporate this into our scenario:
“And there were great and marvelous works wrought by the disciples of Jesus, insomuch that they did heal the sick, and raise the dead, and cause the lame to walk, and the blind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear; and all manner of miracles did they work among the children of men; and in nothing did they work miracles save it were in the name of Jesus.
And it came to pass that there was no contention among all the people, in all the land; but there were mighty miracles wrought among the disciples of Jesus. …
And it came to pass that the seventy and first year passed away, and also the seventy and second year, yea, and in fine, till the seventy and ninth year had passed away; yea, even an hundred years had passed away, and the disciples of Jesus, whom he had chosen, had all gone to the paradise of God, save it were the three who should tarry; and there were other disciples ordained in their stead; and also many of that generation had passed away.
And it came to pass that there was no contention in the land, because of the love of God which did dwell in the hearts of the people.
And there were no envyings, nor strifes, nor tumults, nor whoredoms, nor lyings, nor murders, nor any manner of lasciviousness; and surely there could not be a happier people among all the people who had been created by the hand of God.
There were no robbers, nor murderers, neither were there [Americans, nor French, nor Chinese, nor Arab, nor nationalities of any kind]; but they were in one, the children of Christ, and heirs to the kingdom of God.” (BOM, 4 Nephi 1:5, 13-17)
Would our immortal presence do any good?
Would our presence stop the people from returning to their old ways before our message was delivered to the people through our anointed True Messenger?
Well, let’s continue our hypothetical storyline:
“And now I, Mormon, would that ye should know that the people had multiplied, insomuch that they were spread upon all the face of the land, and that they had become exceedingly rich, because of their prosperity in Christ.
And now, in this two hundred and first year there began to be among them those who were lifted up in pride, such as the wearing of costly apparel, and all manner of fine pearls, and of the fine things of the world.
And from that time forth they did have their goods and their substance no more common among them.
And they began to be divided into classes [i.e. Capitalism and the Free Market]; and they began to build up churches unto themselves to get gain [i.e., the LDS/Mormon Church is the wealthiest church in the world], and began to deny the true church of Christ.
And it came to pass that when two hundred and ten years had passed away there were many churches in the land; yea, there were many churches which professed to know the Christ [the LDS/Mormon Church], and yet they did deny the more parts of his gospel [3 Nephi, 12, 13, and 14], insomuch that they did receive all manner of wickedness, and did administer that which was sacred unto him to whom it had been forbidden because of unworthiness.
And this church did multiply exceedingly because of iniquity [until it became the wealthiest church upon the land], and because of the power of Satan who did get hold upon their hearts.” (BOM, 4 Nephi 1:23-28)
Although we are immortal, we are still mortal.
Being mortal still, we are bound under the same laws of nature (except for death, sickness, and the need for sex or to sleep) and the same “power and authority” over which is held the rest of the people of the world. You might think that the world would treat us differently and with more respect.
But if our message counters the value and worth that the people of the world gain from being exceedingly rich, and from their pride, such as the wearing of costly apparel, and all manner of fine pearls, and of the fine things of the world … and if our message counters their idea that it is good that their goods and their substance are no longer common among them; and that they are divided into economic classes …
Wouldn’t they exercise power and authority over us, put us in prison, and try to kill us?
Let’s put this part in our scenario from above:
“Therefore they did exercise power and authority over the disciples of Jesus who did tarry with them, and they did cast them into prison; but by the power of the word of God, which was in them, the prisons were rent in twain, and they went forth doing mighty miracles among them.
Nevertheless, and notwithstanding all these miracles, the people did harden their hearts, and did seek to kill them, even as the Jews at Jerusalem sought to kill Jesus, according to his word.
And they did cast them into furnaces of fire, and they came forth receiving no harm.
And they also cast them into dens of wild beasts, and they did play with the wild beasts even as a child with a lamb; and they did come forth from among them, receiving no harm.” (BOM, 4 Nephi 1:30-33)
Even if we could prove to the people of the world that we are immortal and can’t be held in prison or killed, would this keep the people from hardening their hearts to our message?
Well, we’ll let our story explain:
“Nevertheless, the people did harden their hearts, for they were led by many priests and false prophets to build up many churches, and to do all manner of iniquity. And they did smite upon the people of Jesus; but the people of Jesus did not smite again. And thus they did dwindle in unbelief and wickedness, from year to year, even until two hundred and thirty years had passed away.
And from this time the disciples began to sorrow for the sins of the world.” (BOM, 4 Nephi 1:34, 44)
We would have no choice but to withdraw and hide ourselves from the world.
Mortality is about free agency and allowing a mortal to do that which makes the individual the most happy. We have lived among mortals since the first mortal appeared upon Earth. We have personal experience that has helped us have and retain our common sense: “sound judgment derived from experience rather than study.”
We have shared our common sense with our True Messenger. He has tried to share it with the world. He has failed, as was expected. If we did not expect this result, which expectation was made from our extensive common sense, we wouldn’t have incorporated the above scenario in our Book of Mormon storyline.
In spite of the empirical evidence that we have provided to prove that our True Messenger works for us … in spite of our True Messenger to whom anyone in the world can personally relate, our message cannot penetrate the free agency of mortal kind.
Revealing ourselves would not help either. Even if we performed a great miracle, such as cutting off an arm or some other member of the body and restoring it, so that people may know that we have come with power and authority, it would do no good.
How, then, can one know for for sure that we are True Messengers who know the Real Truth?
May we once again cede to our previous True Messenger’s endowment play presentation:
LUCIFER: Now is the great day of my power. I reign from the rivers to the ends of the earth. There is none who dares to molest, or make afraid.
MORTAL: Shall we ever have any apostles or prophets?
LUCIFER: No. However, there may be some who will profess revelation or apostleship. If so, just test them by asking that they perform a great miracle, such as cutting off an arm or some other member of the body and restoring it, so that the people may know that they have come with power.
PETER: I am Peter.
JAMES: I am James.
JOHN: I am John.
LUCIFER: Yes, I thought I knew you. (He turns to the Mortal.) Do you know who these men are? They claim to be apostles. Try them!
(The Mortal approaches Peter.)
MORTAL: Do you profess to be apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ?
PETER: We do.
MORTAL: This man told me that we should never have any [True Messengers], but if any should come professing to be [a True Messenger], I was to ask them to cut off an arm or some other member of the body and then restore it, so that the people might know that they came with power.
PETER: We do not satisfy men’s curiosity in that manner. It is a wicked and an adulterous generation that seeks for a sign.
PETER: Adam, we are true messengers from the Father, and have come down to give unto you the further light and knowledge He promised to send you.
ADAM: How shall I know that you are true messengers?
PETER: By our giving unto you the token and sign you received in the Garden of Eden.
(Peter takes Adam by the right hand in the First Token of the Aaronic Priesthood.)
ADAM: What is that?
PETER: The First Token of the Aaronic Priesthood.
ADAM: Has it a name?
PETER: It has.
ADAM: Will you give it to me?
PETER: I cannot, for it is the New Name but this is the sign (Peter raises his right arm to square), and this represents the execution of the penalty (thumb of right hand drawn across the throat).
ADAM: Now I know that you are true messengers sent down from Father. (Speaking directly into the camera to the audience.) 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.
Ignorant LDS/Mormon leaders took out many parts of the original play. Everything in the play is symbolic of some Real Truth. The man wears a cap with three ribbons representing the Godhead. A string runs from the Godhead to the robe on the man’s shoulder. This string is symbolic of the actual connection that each of us has to our True Self. Women have no string and veil their faces, because women are more likely to “see through veil” than rely upon their “string” to understand their “still small voice.”
The cutting of the throat (borrowed from Masonic ritual) simply symbolizes the penalty that a mortal experiences from being completely “cut off” from the Godhead, from their True Self.
Our personal “name” is associated with our personal experience at any given time. The “name” that one is not allowed to reveal is symbolic of a mortal’s experience as an advanced human, something that a mortal cannot remember, therefore, the mortal cannot “reveal” anything about this “name.”
Although we are immortal, we do not remember our personal experiences as advanced humans, thus even “Peter” cannot reveal it. But what a True Messenger can reveal is what was experienced in the Garden of Eden, which is symbolic of the First Dispensation of Human Time upon Earth.
ADAM: How shall I know that you are true messengers?
PETER: By our giving unto you the token and sign you received in the Garden of Eden.
A True Messenger is the only mortal upon Earth who can explain everything that there is to know about human experience upon Earth, even during the First Dispensation of Human Time when mortals were immortal and lived upon an Earth that was perfect for a mortal to live immortally.
This is what was meant symbolically “by our giving you the token and sign you received in the Garden of Eden.” All of us lived in the “Garden of Eden.” But only two of us have remained upon Earth since that time.
Although we cannot fully remember our “new name” (the new existence we embarked upon as a newly created advanced human in our pre-mortal life), we know everything that there is to know about the “Garden of Eden,” i.e., how things were in the beginning … from the foundation of the world.
This is how you will know that we are True Messengers.
When we explain what took place upon Earth “from the foundation of the world” … once we explain these things to you by way of our common sense, if you will only open your mind to the possibility that we know, and eliminate your personal pride and accept that you don’t know, then, … because you too have experienced the same thing, and these experiences are stored deep within your advanced brain’s memory … to which you have a “string” attached …
Once we explain the Real Truth of how things really were in the past, how things really are today, and how things really will be in the future, the information will begin to make sense to you, more than any truth or information that you have ever considered. You will begin to see our sound judgment and sense that it is the only Real Truth. This shared sense does not come from your studying what you might receive from the Ministers of Lucifer of this world.
It comes from your own personal experience…
From the proper and true common sense.
