Pride, Hypocrisy, Unbelief.
Millions now, today, deny
the Holy Ghost, and will not accept the truth, because of
their traditions. Jesus said they will NOT
"For they saw and beheld with great sorrow that the
people of the church began to
be lifted up in the pride of their eyes, and
to set their hearts upon riches and upon the vain things of the world,
that they began to be scornful, one towards another, and
they began to persecute those that did not believe according to their own will
and pleasure." Alma 4: 8
18 For as I said unto you from the beginning, that I had much desire that ye were not in the state of dilemma like your brethren, even so I have found that my desires have been gratified.
19 For I perceive that ye are in the paths of righteousness; I perceive that
ye are in the path which leads to the kingdom of God; (Reading)
20 I perceive that it has been made known unto you, by the testimony of his word, that he cannot walk in crooked paths; neither doth he vary from that which he hath said; neither hath he a shadow of turning from the right to the left, or from that which is right to that which is wrong; therefore, his course is one eternal round. (He is the same today!)
21 And he doth not
dwell in unholy temples;
(CLICK HERE to see about the Canaanite in unholy
temples) neither can filthiness or anything which is
unclean be received into the kingdom of God; therefore I say unto you the time
shall come, yea, and it shall be at the
last day, that he who is filthy shall remain in his filthiness." Alma 7:17-21
I realize that some "good
hypocrites" will argue with what Alma
just said above. That
the 'proud' Church people, who love
riches, and let the Canaanites into their un-holy temples;
don't believe in the same God who: "cannot
walk in crooked paths; neither doth he vary from that which he hath said;
neither hath he a shadow of turning from the right to the left, or from that
which is right to that which is wrong."
20 And I also beheld a strait and narrow path, which came along by the rod of iron, even to the tree by which I stood; and it also led by the head of the fountain, unto a large and spacious field, as if it had been a world.
21 And I saw numberless (millions) concourses of people, many of whom were pressing forward, that they might obtain the path which led unto the tree by which I stood.
22 And it came to pass that they did come forth, and commence in the path which led to the tree.
23 And it came to pass that there arose a mist of darkness; yea, even an exceedingly great mist of darkness, insomuch that they who had commenced in the path did lose their way, that they wandered off and were lost. (Notice "that they wandered off and were lost.")
24 And it came to pass that I beheld others pressing forward, and they came forth and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron; and they did press forward through the mist of darkness, clinging to the rod of iron, even until they did come forth and partake of the fruit of the tree.
25 And after they had partaken of the fruit of the tree they did cast their eyes about as if they were ashamed.
26 And I also cast my eyes round about, and beheld, on the other side of the
river of water,

high above the earth. The tallest Skyscraper in
Salt Lake City Utah.
28 And after they had tasted of the fruit they were ashamed, because of those that were scoffing at them; and they fell away into forbidden paths and were lost.
29 And now I, Nephi, do not speak all the words of my father.
30 But, to be short in writing, behold, he saw other multitudes pressing forward; and they came and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron; and they did press their way forward, continually holding fast to the rod of iron, until they came forth and fell down and partook of the fruit of the tree.
31 And he also saw other multitudes (millions of members) feeling their way towards that great and spacious building.
32 And it came to pass that many were drowned in the depths of the fountain; and many were lost from his view, wandering in strange roads.
33 And great was the multitude that did enter into that strange building. (Millions) And after they did enter into that building they did point the finger of scorn at me and those that were partaking of the fruit also; but we heeded them not. (Millions joined the church.)
34 These are the words of my father: For as many as heeded them,
had fallen away."
"Behold, will ye believe in the
day of your visitation--behold, when the Lord shall come,
yea, even that great day when the earth
shall be rolled together as a scroll, and the elements shall melt with fervent
3 Then will ye longer deny the Christ, or can ye behold the Lamb of God? Do ye suppose that ye shall dwell with him under a consciousness of your guilt? Do ye suppose that ye could be happy to dwell with that holy Being, when your souls are racked with a consciousness of guilt that ye have ever abused his laws?
4 Behold, I say unto you that ye would be more miserable to dwell with a holy and just God, under a consciousness of your filthiness before him, than ye would to dwell with the damned souls in hell.
5 For behold, when ye shall be brought to see your nakedness before God, and
also the glory of God, and the holiness of Jesus Christ,
6 O then ye unbelieving, turn ye unto the Lord; cry mightily unto the Father in the name of Jesus, that perhaps ye may be found spotless, pure, fair, and white, having been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb, at that great and last day.
7 And again I speak unto you who deny
the revelations of God,
and say that they are done away, that there are no revelations,
nor prophecies, nor gifts, nor healing, nor speaking with tongues, and the
interpretation of tongues; CLICK

9 For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and in him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing?
10 And now, if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who doth vary, and in whom there is shadow of changing, then have ye imagined up unto yourselves a god who is not a God of miracles.
11 But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and it is that same God who created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are.
12 Behold, he created Adam, and by Adam
came the fall of man. (Adam-Father)
13 And because of the redemption of man, which came by Jesus Christ, they are brought back into the presence of the Lord; yea, this is wherein all men are redeemed, because the death of Christ bringeth to pass the resurrection, which bringeth to pass a redemption from an endless sleep, from which sleep all men shall be awakened by the power of God when the trump shall sound; and they shall come forth, both small and great, and all shall stand before his bar, being redeemed and loosed from this eternal band of death, which death is a temporal death.
14 And then cometh the judgment of the
Holy One upon them; and then cometh the time that he that is filthy shall be
filthy still; (still)
15 And now, O all ye that have imagined up unto yourselves a god who can do
16 Behold, are not the things that God hath wrought marvelous in our eyes? Yea, and who can comprehend the marvelous works of God?
17 Who shall say that it was not a miracle that by his word the heaven and the earth should be; and by the power of his word man was created of the dust of the earth; and by the power of his word have miracles been wrought?

19 And if there were miracles wrought then, why
has God ceased to be a God of miracles and
yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he changeth not; if
so he would cease to be God;
20 And the reason why he ceaseth to do miracles among the children of men is because that they dwindle in unbelief, and depart from the right way, and know not the God in whom they should trust.
21 Behold, I say unto you that whoso believeth in Christ, doubting nothing, whatsoever he shall ask the Father in the name of Christ it shall be granted him; and this promise is unto all, even unto the ends of the earth.
22 For behold, thus said Jesus Christ, the Son of God, unto his disciples who should tarry, yea, and also to all his disciples, in the hearing of the multitude: Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature;
23 And he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned; (Believe NOT and be damned.)
24 And these signs shall follow them that believe--in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover;
25 And whosoever shall believe in my name, doubting nothing, unto him will I confirm all my words, even unto the ends of the earth.
26 And now, behold, Who
can stand against the works of the Lord?
27 O then despise not, and wonder not, but hearken unto the words of the Lord, and ask the Father in the name of Jesus for what things soever ye shall stand in need. Doubt not, but be believing, and begin as in times of old, and come unto the Lord with all your heart, and work out your own salvation with fear and trembling before him.
28 Be wise in the days of your probation; strip yourselves of all uncleanness; ask not, that ye may consume it on your lusts, but ask with a firmness unshaken, that ye will yield to no temptation, but that ye will serve the true and living God.
29 See that ye are not baptized unworthily; see that ye partake not of the sacrament of Christ unworthily; (Hypocrites in the millions do it. And even teach their children to go to hell.) but see that ye do all things in worthiness, and do it in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God; and if ye do this, and endure to the end, ye will in nowise be cast out.
(Salt Lake City LDS Conference Saturday, and Sunday April 1, 2001 would
have been a perfect time for the 15
Apostles and Prophets they sustain, to
tell them what they needed to do. More
than 100, 000 people attended there,
It was on the Internet and millions more watched on CBS TV. Sunday.
Was God asleep, OR
the Mormon leaders? Somebody sure was.
31 Condemn me not because of mine imperfection, neither my father, because of his imperfection, neither them who have written before him; but rather give thanks unto God that he hath made manifest unto you our imperfections, that ye may learn to be more wise than we have been.
32 And now, behold, we have written this record according to our knowledge, in the characters which are called among us the reformed Egyptian, being handed down and altered by us, according to our manner of speech.
33 And if our plates had been sufficiently large we should have written in Hebrew; but the Hebrew hath been altered by us also; and if we could have written in Hebrew, behold, ye would have had no imperfection in our record.
34 But the Lord knoweth the things which we have written, and also that none other people knoweth our language; and because that none other people knoweth our language, therefore he hath prepared means for the interpretation thereof.
35 And these things are written that we
may rid our garments of the blood
of our brethren, who have dwindled in
36 And behold, these things which we have desired concerning our brethren, yea, even their restoration to the knowledge of Christ, are according to the prayers of all the saints who have dwelt in the land.
37 And may the Lord Jesus Christ grant that their prayers may be answered
according to their faith; and may God the
Father remember the covenant which he hath made with the house of Israel;
and may he bless them forever, through faith on the name of Jesus Christ.

You surely would NOT want to be the Church
leaders, who did not
take care of the sheep. God will hold them accountable! Woe unto them.
2 Son of man, prophesy against the
shepherds of Israel, prophesy,
2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if
the sword come, and take him away,
5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. (Leaders are accountable.)
7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. (Church leaders are asleep- lazy at their responsibility.)
8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die;
9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked
of his way to turn from it;
