Dadgummit, I wish I could come up with happier topics or even a happier mindset.
I will from time to time find myself smiling for no apparent reason yet my overall feelings are not of despair but of preparing myself for the inevitable turmoil upon this nation.
For those who believe that President Obama is the enemy of this nation and it’s future I can see where their concerns would be founded not only by economic philosophies but the social agenda that the Democratic Party has so aggressively pursued.
So you have the crowd that says he will bring about the end of this great nation.
Then you have the others who believe that Republican candidate Mitt Romney is insensitive to the everyday man and they believe that if elected he would bring about the peril of this nation.
Either way, it would appear that this election is one of great importance.
In the same week I saw the movie 2016 and finished the book The Mormonizing of America.
If the viewpoint of this book is accurate regarding the Mormon faith, how fascinating and interesting it is to learn that Mormons believe that the Garden of Eden was here in America, that Noah’s Ark was built here just off the east coast, that Christ came to America after the resurrection and that upon His return will reign from Jerusalem and Jackson County, Missouri.
All because the prophet Joseph Smith said so.
Get this quote regarding the topic of Mormons to save America.
“Will the Constitution be destroyed? No: it will be held inviolate by this people; and, as Joseph Smith said, ‘The time will come when the destiny of the nation will hang upon a single thread. At that critical juncture, this people will step forth and save it from the threatened destruction.’ It will be so.”
Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 7:15
That quote came from one of the founding leaders of the Mormon faith many, many years ago.
Is this election truly so important that the future of the nation hangs in the balance?
If President Obama is as some believe a Muslim and Governor Romney is a Mormon then how does a Christian find truth in any of this? And where does the salvation of the nation truly arise from?
Herod asked the right question of Christ, “What is truth?”
