Argument In Support of Anti-Abortion Laws & Prosecution

Not sure government should be able to force a woman to carry an unwanted child?

Well, I argue that government is an institution of God, for the protection of, among other things, human life; and that our Creator included an instruction in our DNA to excrete a hormone that effectively forces a woman to carry a child ‘to term’, therefore government has an obligation to enact and enforce anti-abortion laws and procedures that do mandate a woman carry the baby until it can be safely developed outside the womb, and that the baby then be kept alive.

A baby in the womb is not simply a passive object being built by the mother’s body. From the moment of conception, the pregnant woman’s body is, in great measure, under the control of the baby by design.

Most foreign objects in the human body are destroyed and/or ejected by our natural immune system. A pregnant woman’s body notices and should destroy or eject a new baby within only a couple of the baby’s first cell divisions. The reason it does not is because our DNA includes the instruction for those first cells to excrete substances that suppress the woman’s immune response.

Specifically: “A hormone produced by the earliest cells after fertilization travels in mom’s bloodstream back to her ovary. Ovarian cells detect that hormone and respond by producing progesterone—the very important hormone that will calm the uterine contractions for nine months and maintain the pregnancy. Later, the placenta will produce progesterone at even higher concentrations.” -Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. “All-Or-Nothing Unity In The Human Body” from the book “Creation Basics & Beyond An In-Depth Look at Science, Origins, and Evolution” (2013) p. 108.

A right is a just claim, or privilege, endowed by God. From the moment of conception, we have the right to live, and it is the will of God that we do. If government were an institution of mankind, for instance to replace God, it would have no rights at all, only the privileges granted to it by its constituents, or its people. But government is an institution of God, so it does have some just claims, or privileges, endowed by God. Namely the right to enact and enforce laws that: 1) protects mortal, human life; and 2) redress for our grievances according to the will of God.

Because of Judeo-Christian teachings, which is the basis of most, if not all, modern civilization, we know the will of God is for us to “multiply”, that is, to have babies; to procreate. In fact, it is a commandment of God and we are forbidden to murder; to kill another human (see Genesis 1:28 & Exodus 20:13). Whether or not a woman wants to be a mother, or to have the responsibility of carrying a baby to term, it is the will of God that she does. Regardless of the circumstances of the conception, or fertilization, God wills it.

So what rights, if any, does the pregnant woman have? Well she does have the right to abort the baby, or to hire someone to perform an abortion, in the same way we all have a right to murder, or to hire someone to kill for us. That is to say, she has the right to choose to follow the will of God or to kill the baby. To end the life of a developing baby is just as against the will of God as any other murder is, and it should be against the law just as any other killing is, and it should be prosecuted just as any other killing is.

Are Mormons Required To OBEY Church “Leaders”?

Logo, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Apparently, there is a growing number of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who are confused about what a prophet is and isn’t. Because of this whole world-wide coronavirus pandemic, many of these members are claiming that “the prophet” has told us to wear masks, and other such nonsense claims. These people are sowing dissension within the church and even going as far as declaring that the members, like me, who refuse to wear the mark of the beast to enter meeting houses, are actually tares and should be removed from callings and the church.

So, I have collected a couple videos to help illustrate my argument that “a prophet is only a prophet when speaking prophetically”. In other words, if he, the president of the Church is not saying ‘sayeth the Lord’, or equivalent, he is just giving his opinion. For instance, when President Russel M. Nelson announced changes to the priesthood structure, shortly after being named president, he in fact claimed the change were divinely revealed. He was acting as a prophet.

This is a video released by the Church of Jesus Christ itself that teaches us exactly what a prophet is:

This second video is produced by a member of the Church by the name of Scott Woodward. I’m sharing it because it explores the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints concerning the words church presidents say and whether they are meant to be obeyed or whether they are simply the opinion of the man who said them.

Please watch and share them with your member friends and family.

Revelation From God

Just three weeks ago, the man, who was called of God to be the bishop of the ward I attend, stood up before the congregation and declared that another man, holding the position of stake president, was receiving revelation for the church and the ward, and pledged his sustaining support.

This is a serious transgression. My local church leaders are deceived and leading members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints astray.

We believe there are only two forms of revelation, prophetic revelation and personal revelation. Heavenly Father speaks to us through a living prophet, or directly to us individually. In fact, the Doctrine and Covenants, a compilation of modern scripture revealed to us through living prophets, of the Church of Jesus Christ, teaches, particularly in section 28, that only prophets, presidents of the Church, have authority to receive revelation for the church.

All members of the Church can receive personal revelation, but that revelation is personal and private to the individual to whom God has given it. While bishops and stake presidents, as members of the Church, are able to receive personal revelation, the way they manage the affairs of their respective callings, or positions in the Church, are limited to inspiration and faith in accordance with the gospel and doctrine of Jesus Christ.

The timing of the release of this video is, to say the least, impeccable. I would say miraculous.

Hindsight Is 2020

Isaiah 10:1 Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed. -KJV

We studied this last year for the Come, Follow Me February 17-23 lesson. We missed it then, but we know now that it was a warning of the illegal edicts our governments would be enacting to force subjugation.
