We believe that thou art God!
And we believe that thou art holy,
And that thou hast a spirit,
And that thou art flesh and bone,
And that thou wilt progress forever.
Heavenly Father, we believe that thou hast separated us from our brethren
And we do not believe in the tradition of our brethren,
Which was handed down to them by the Great Apostasy of their fathers.
But we believe that thou hast elected us to be thy one true and living church!
And also thou hast made it known unto us that we have all the keys.
But thou art the same yesterday, today, and forever!
And thou hast elected us that we shall be exalted,
Whilst all around us are elected to be cast by thy wrath down to the Telestial Kingdom!
For the which holiness, O God, we thank thee.
And we also thank thee that thou hast elected us to give us all the necessary keys,
That we may not be led away after the foolish traditions of our brethren,
Which doth bind them down to a belief that they do not need all the true priesthood keys which we (and only we) have,
Which doth lead their hearts to wander far from thee, our god.
And again we thank thee, O God, that we are a chosen and a holy people blessed with all the keys.
Why another one of these blogs? With all their GD negativity? Another soon-to-be-victim of the Great TM?
I guess we’ll just have to find out and see . . .
I rather like these words:
“I seek not for power, but to pull it down. I seek not for honor of the world, but for the glory of my God, and the freedom and welfare of my country.” – Cap’ Moroni
Maybe that is as good a purpose statement as any?I seek not for power, but to pull it down.
I am a bit hesitant about blogging, because I feel like I am in a constant flux of ideas – so it’s a bit hard to peg down what I believe or what I think is true. It’s a process, so this blog is a chronicle of that process – the exploration, the growth, and (of course) the error.
Hopefully a couple ideas I have will spawn some good dialogue, with the potential for correction (which ever side it may be). May the blessings flow!
Also, FYI I ain’t got no keys. Therefore feel free to disregard all my writings. Because keys are super fetchin’ important and if you don’t have the keys, you really are in no place to do or say anything. I honor the keys and their holders so much for all the key-power they have. Long live the keys! So many keys, without them what would we do? We would be super lost – that’s what! Imagine if you just showed up to church and suddenly there were no keys – the bishop lost them let’s say. The horror that would ensue! The bishop would be left helpless and keyless and we couldn’t hold any meetings! Remember to honor the keys and their holders.
In fact, let’s start with a prayer next post in honor of the keys I so reverently honor.
