The Book of Mormon is a divine book of scripture containing a witness and a warning. The witness is that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. According to President Ezra T. Benson, the warning is to beware of pride. What is the sin of pride? President Benson taught that pride is "enmity with God". In other words, according to the Book of Mormon, pride is an evil desire "that the God who created [you] should not rule and reign over [you]".

There are 3 Lessons we are to learn in life: 1. Love God. 2. Control the Body, 3. Submit to God's Priesthood Authority. In other words, Pres. Benson liked to say, "Give your life to God because He can do more with it than you can." Christ taught the essence of Christianity when He said, "not as I wilt but as Thou wilt".
However, some despise God and seek not his will. Some cannot stand than anyone else tell them what to do--even God. Many follow the "god in their hearts", a god of their own making created in their image who never really requires that much out of them.
A few of those possessed with this pride fall for Satan's lie that you can "do as you will." But not everyone can do as they will. That's what the pyramid is all about. There is only room at the top for one. Everyone else is a "king-man" slave looking for privileges, bribes, pay-offs, kick-backs and favors to "trickle down" from the top.
Truth is that there is no such thing as anyone doing whatever they want. Life is about choosing the master we will serve. If we choose Satan, there can only be one person in the whole pyramid scheme doing what they want. And even that person can't do much of anything because Satan has no creative power. Satan can only enslave, steal and corrupt.
If we choose to be a slave to the body, or riches or power; we too end up realizing that we can never get enough and we quickly can become enslaved by various addictions that destroy our lives, our health, our self-respect, and our happiness.
Lucifer lies to his followers that He was the chosen son and not Jehovah and that there will be no future judgement and there will be no physical resurrection. This false doctrine that there will be no judgement is enticing to those enslaved to sin.
Because God has creative powers, there is no scarcity of position at the top. God can bestow His creative power on His children and they then can have dominion over their own creation as God has dominion over us as we are His creation. In God's system there is never a problem with too many Chiefs and not enough indians.
But the problem with pride is not just the problem of inequality but when a people are prideful, they allow room for secret combinations to enter in. Secret Combinations take advantage of, steal from, enslave and even kill their neighbors.
Secret Combinations create a society with great inequality and artificial scarcity. Why does Satan love to make resources scarce? God assures us the "Earth is full and there is more than enough and to spare". But if we make resources scarce, then possessing these resources brings power, status over those who will take the bribe or who also covet material things.
In Roman times, Secret Combinations destroyed their democracy by demoralizing the people through immorality and substance abuse. Sexual immorality led to Illegitimacy. Illegitimacy led to poverty. Substance abuse led to greater idleness and wastefulness, and idleness and wastefulness also led to poverty.
After building up a voting base of poor, instead of helping the poor themselves, the people instead voted for state-sponsored welfare (free bread and circus). When the State attempts to do the work of religion (charity and virtue according to James), the State leaves out the virtue. Thus there is no accountability and the poor stay poor because instead of rehabilitating the poor, the State-sponsored welfare bails out and enables the poor. The free bread and circus just keeps on coming without any expectation to change the behavior that made the person poor in the first place.
Just like building orphanages creates more orphans, and adopting children from 3rd-world countries for tens of thousands of dollars creates a bigger market in human trafficking. State-sponsored welfare creates more poverty and more dependence. Government needs to get out of the job of Religion and Religions needs to also start doing their job (charity and virtue).
So, Rome was sending all its gold to China for hashish and opium carried along the spice roads. To maintain the Roman economy, Rome had to bring in more tribute. To bring in more tribute, they had to expand their territory. But Rome didn't have enough soldiers. So, the Marian reforms (Dream Act), promised German Barbarians citizenship and welfare benefits and land if they would serve in the Roman Legions.
After Rome was bankrupt, these German Barbarian Foeterati aliens staged an insurrection, assassinated the Emperor and divided up the Roman Empire for ever. The Holy Roman Empire lasted for hundreds of years until Emperor Francis II signed the Treaty of Pressburg in Dec 1805. Joseph Smith was born Dec 1805.
Christ warns the Gentiles in the Book of Mormon that the seed of Jacob will be among us and could tear us into pieces if we don't repent. However, I am hopeful because of Isa 19 that Egypt will repent. We will be smitten and then we will be healed.
The current banking empire represented in Nebuchadnezzar's dream by the feet of clay involves the private central banking system set up by Nathan Rothschild in 1815 when he used his fore-knowledge of the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo. Rothschild spread the rumor that England had lost. This created a panic on the Consul market. The next day, Rothschild bough up control over 1/2 the British Empire for pennies on the British pound.
In America we have allowed the secret combinations that the Book of Mormon warned about to infiltrate and grow up among us. We call this system of private central banks that rule the industrialized world the G20. The Book of Mormon warns that this conspiracy seeks to destroy the freedom of all nations. Also, that secret combinations like that are among the Gentile nations proved the destruction of the Nephites and Jaredites.
The Banking conspiracy really got ahold of the US in 1913. The US Revolutionary war was fought over freedom to print or coin our own currency and issue our own credit and not have to go though London's good 'ol boy system. However in 1812, rich elite gathered at Jekyll Is. Georgia and planned the Federal Reserve system (New World Order Heritage Site).
There were many who remembered why our forefathers fought the Revolution (not tea or stamps or wearing jeans and watching football). So, JPMorgan invited all the opposition to the FED on a cruise to discuss the matter. JPMorgan thought the lifeboats on the Titanic cluttered the deck and had them removed. Then something came up at the last minute and JPMorgan couldn't make the cruise. Then the Titanic was driven into an iceberg and all JPMorgan's adversaries went down with the ship.
I drive over a memorial of the sinking of the Titanic almost every day coming home from work. The Major Archibald Butt memorial Bridge is located in Augusta, GA and spans the Augusta Canal on 15th Street. Major Butt supposedly kept all the scared men from getting into the life boats at gun point making sure women and children were attended to first. The whole thing is a total fabrication and the Butt Bridge is the ugliest little bridge you could possibly imagine. But President Taft flew in to Augusta for the ribbon cutting ceremony. (Georgia Guidestones is another local NWO globalist monument in Elberton).
Every President since Taft has been controlled by the Banking cartel. Most have all been members of the Bohemian Club/Grove and the Bilderberg Group. Whatever they call their get-to-gethers; its the same people weaving the same web.
So, then over Christmas break Dec 23, 1913, A few congressmen meet and pass the Federal Reserve Act which insider Woodrow Wilson signs (Woodrow Wilson's Childhood home is in Augusta on 9th Street). and the now Chief Justice and former President Taft, who had became an initiated insider (took the Mark of the Beast), checked off on it also. Now Satan had control over the world's reserve currency and America began its slow and steady moral decline.
So what does secret combinations and the warning of Nephi, Mormon and Moroni in the Book of Mormon have to do with faith, hope and charity? Well, I was trying to think about why after warning about secret combinations in Ether 8 did the Lord end the Book of Mormon with a lecture on true charity? Maybe the Lord feels like our misunderstanding of true charity is part of what gives conspiracy power to grow up among us.
Understanding these fundamental principles is challenging because Satan has changed the meaning of faith, hope and charity. Satan has also changed the meaning of pride to be a good thing. So now we talk about good pride and bad pride.
Faith has been changed to mean blind belief. In reality faith is obedience with real intent that then bares knowledge. True Christians are Christian scientists who are taught and encouraged to prove all things. LDS always question but never doubt. Doubt says I will obey after I understand. Faithful questioning says I will obey first knowing the commandment is of God and understanding will come through obedience later.
But we know we cannot receive a witness until after a trial of our faith. Christ taught only after doing the will of the Father would know of the doctrine whether it was of God or if Christ spoke of himself. LDS obey with real intent, we talk-the-talk and walk-the-walk, knowing that obedience will bring forth the good fruit of peace and happiness and the powers of godliness and priesthood in our lives.
Hope has become a wish upon a star. Hope has become the feeling we get inside a casino when we roll the dice or pull the lever on the slot machine and we wish that our number comes up.
Firstly, true Christians don't gamble and only go to casinos for the buffet. Second, true hope is an assurance through our faith. As I have said before, at the BYU Testing Center, after turning in your scan-tron at the desk, the test is immediately graded electronically on the spot and a special HP printer is located near the exit that continuously spits out half-sheets of paper with your test grade.
There is almost a continual vigil of prayer and supplication surrounding that HP Printer at the BYU Testing Center. But sometimes students pray a wish knowing they didn't study as they should have and more often there is the prayer of faith and assurance that the print-out will read "Congratulations on a NICE test score", because they put in the work required to master the material.
But how does true obedience and true hope and assurance lead to the true love of Christ? Mormon warned that an "evil man cannot give a good gift". Why? because an evil man does't give with true intent. What is that intent? The only true intent is with an eye single to the glory of God. Remember, faith is obedience and good works with real intent.
However, the great conspiracy hides behind their many foundations and the cloak of humanitarianism. But in some cases, some (not all) of what these foundations support is self-serving or supports the progressive demoralization of America and other nations.
Also, we have to remember that even if we give to others with real intent, we must also be virtuous. If we are immoral in our personal lives but are generous to the poor; are we any better than the rich during the days of Martin Luther who falsely believed they could pay indulgences for forgiveness of sin?
So, we have discussed how true faith leads to charity. More interesting is how true hope leads to charity? Many times I am not patient enough because I fear I may not have enough time or energy. Consequently, I may get short with another person instead of being patient.
The conspiracy and false morality teach men to contemplate on their death and use that fear to motivate their actions. True Christian morality teaches an eternal perspective. When we humble ourselves and trust in the Lord that he knows our days, and our years will not be numbered less; then we can exemplify the patience, kindness and long-suffering of Christ.
I almost put Serenity but serenity is NOT a Christ-like attribute. Christ has even more patience than Job but we are taught that God does not look upon sin with the least degree of allowance. We can be content with the gifts God has given us, but we do not need to be content with evil. We can change the evil around us into good but we know it may take a long time. We also know good wins in the end.
Instead of fear motivating our actions, fear of death, or fear of scarcity; the true Christian is motivated by love, contentment, and trust in God's power. When we have obedience with real intent, we can have an assurance in God's blessings. and we then can be liberated from fear and empowered to show love to others regardless of the situation.
SAVING THE CONSTITUTION
If anyone has a plan to save the United States that does not involve a "return to virtue", it won't work. Satan has slowly destroyed this country by first demoralizing us just like Rome. We can do all the educating we want, but unless we have a moral people, the immoral will not want to believe the truth. They will be like the people of Ammonihah who falsely believed that their great city could never be destroyed.
I mention this because a very important tactic that Satan uses is controlled opposition. Satan knows people are tribal and we love to take sides. So, when Satan starts up his "Destroy the Constitution Foundation", he also starts up a "Save the Constitution Foundation". In addition to tax sheltering money, No one starts an alternative "Save the Constitution Foundation B" because Foundation A seems to be doing so well.
These two forces battle it out. But remember, contention is always of the devil, and fighting it out rarely brings a good result. And then when the conflict comes down to the wire, the wolves in sheep's clothing divert our attention from the real issues, claim we can save the Constitution by legalizing drugs, and then throw the game at the end.
Well, many things have been prophesied in scripture. Every one of these things must be fulfilled. There is no changing the things that surely must come to past. There is no saving Babylon on Track 1. But like Pres. J Ruben Clark often said, the faithful will win this war on Track 2. Zion is track 2 and the most important thing we can do to save America and Constitutional government is to work and sacrifice to build Zion and return America to being a nation of virtue. Because after Babylon is burned and shaken and falls; Zion is going to be the only thing left standing.
The scriptures ask, when the shaking begins, Will we be able to stand? If we have been wise and have oil in our lamps, if we have received the truth and not been deceived, and have taken the holy spirit to be our guide and if we are standing in holy places, we will be able to stand whether it be "in life or in death".
