With great complexity comes great responsibility

Analyzing what you got wrong in the past is essential to making yourself better for the future. More and more people are regretting taking the shot, and some people are honest enough to say so. Some of these people have publicly expressed their wonder that some people somehow got it right. I recently saw an article with something like 16 reasons everyone should have seen the covid shot as something not worth getting. I am not sharing the article, because I think it vastly overcomplicates the process. Complexity is a measure of how difficult it is to understand something. One of the many hidden measures of intelligence is a person's ability to convey complex ideas in high fidelity using simple ideas. Here is the simplest way I can put it in the five minutes I'm willing to spend on this post: What is the cost, and what is the benefit? Even with the initially overinflated death rates, it was very clear from day one that an experimental mRNA treatment with obviously lifelong effect

Some other ways

The last while I've been peppered by circumstances that cause me to reflect on the damage done by the many professed spiritual leaders pretending they have something worth listening to. It's amazing to me the kind of barriers exist in the minds and hearts of those who have been trained on bitter water. They have vastly impeded systems of determining the value of the real thing when it is plainly offered to them. They expect the real wine to come in their counterfeit bottles, and when it doesn't they expect the wine to be poured into the skins they hold up when they come around. It really doesn't work that way. I plan to help by giving you a good description of how to evaluate the value of what is offered in books later.  A quick list of the expectations would include: - Sharing "your witness." This cracks me up because the word "witness" in the scriptures means a lot more than someone who tells a story. The use as such is a dead giveaway that the per

The hidden famine: update

https://www.cnn.com/2023/01/15/business/global-food-crisis-davos/index.html "the world is still in the grips of the worst food crisis in modern history" "a senior nutrition manager at a clinic run by the International Rescue Committee in Mogadishu told CNN that its caseload had spiked 80% in one month, and that it was seeing a staggering 265% increase in severe malnutrition in children under the age of five." https://www.reuters.com/graphics/AFRICA-HUNGER/lgpdkknwlvo/ "Staff at the Benadir maternity and paediatric hospital said admissions of malnourished children have more than doubled their patient numbers over the past year. "Across Africa, from east to west, people are experiencing a food crisis that is bigger and more complex than the continent has ever seen, say diplomats and humanitarian workers."

I told you this would happen. Here's what's next.

I have been saying for many years that the foundations of modern society had been quietly obliterated, and that you would see many apparent changes in human behavior as circumstances arise to reveal it. I've mentioned how these shifts would surprise you. This article notes how retailers are locking up many different products that would have been unheard of, say, five to ten years ago. Like ice cream. I am still waiting for pharmacy counters to look like bank counters (bulletproof glass), but I fully expect it. I'm not writing this article to say, "I told you so," but to tell you more. You are going to shortly see products, services, and even businesses going off the market without anything comparable to replace them. I've probably said this before. I'm saying it again. It is going to happen. The underlying principle is that, contrary to what people are led to believe today, products and services do not spring forth out of thin air. They exist only because the

Short but important ideas on faith

The degree of faith is determined by the degree to which the obedience is justified by God himself (his character) versus anything else.  The world defines faith incorrectly as believing without having a reason. Those with more light than most define it as doing what you have reason to do. The purest of faith—the one that opens the door to the greatest of God’s blessings, which can be had in no other way—is found in those feelings and actions whose reason is God himself.

The Seers Hath He Covered

The kingdom of God requires flowing contemporary revelation What constitutes the kingdom of God? Where there is a prophet, a priest, or a righteous man unto whom God gives His oracles, there is the kingdom of God; and where the oracles of God are not, there the kingdom of God is not.... but if we do not get revelations, we do not have the oracles of God.... (T.P.J.S., p. 272) When the people are wicked, God withholds his spirit For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. (Isaiah 29:10) Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God. (Micah 3:7) Churches that do not have flowing contemporary revelation are in rebellion against God "Communication never ceased when the people were faithful....an unbroken stillness reigned between the heavens and the earth until the people again repented...." (Ge

A Great Division Among the People

[Reposted from 3/20/17] Recently, the Lord has shown me more about the topic of how humans are used to attack those who attempt to follow the Lord, how to wisely conquer them, and how quickly Satan is taking over the people on this earth. For the time speedily cometh that the Lord God shall cause a great division among the people, and the wicked will he destroy; and he will spare his people, yea, even if it so be that he must destroy the wicked by fire. (2 Nephi 30:10) 1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so
