Some would say we are between and Rock and a Hard Spot, in many ways they might be right… good and evil have always existed – but doing good is the only way to lift ourselves and others to a higher and better world – Christ is the way!!
No one likes to have their voice – cut off or controlled – but in many countries – even in the USA this is being done, the solution is not easy but possible control your own servers, have your email lists and work with like minded individuals.
The Question not asked is how do we work our way out to higher ground?
Christ said – Look to me in every thought – Doubt not – Fear not!!
“Fear not to do good, my sons, for whatsoever ye sow, that shall ye also reap; therefore, if ye sow good ye shall also reap good for your reward.
“Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail.
“Behold, I do not condemn you; go your ways and sin no more; perform with soberness the work which I have commanded you.
“Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.
“Behold the wounds which pierced my side, and also the prints of the nails in my hands and feet; be faithful, keep my commandments, and ye shall inherit the kingdom of heaven” (D&C 6:33–37).
The Lord told His leaders of the Restoration, and He tells us, that when we stand with faith upon His rock, doubt and fear are diminished; the desire to do good increases. As we accept President Monson’s invitation to plant in our hearts a testimony of Jesus Christ, we gain the power, the desire, and the courage to go to the rescue of others without concern for our own needs.
Are we the only ones that can do good? No, but unitedly worldwide – some things have to be done by the priesthood – ordinances and other wise, but many things will have to be done by people …. To what end? To unite us – to lead use and to work together on a brighter future –
Self control begins with us – if you can not obey the law – especially the higher laws – like telling the truth – Don’t even get angry or mad – let alone kill – control your tough and thoughts and desires – these things all – happen long before – sex is done – long before pregnancy – let alone taking a life of the Un-Born!
If we want a better world – we need to start with ourselves – our families and our communities…
We have the power to do this if we choose to do so, our best is yet to come – if we create it – and Obey the higher laws…
Virtue – honesty – seeking and obeying truth – loving our Best in our selves, and in others… Christ said – come follow me…
In 2000+ Years has any one seen better examples of virtue, of love, of service and sacrifice? I think not!
As Heavenly Father’s sons and daughters – we have the power to become as they are – if we will work for it – desire it and combine our desires with theirs – but God’s ways are not our ways – for as the Heavens are higher than the Earth so is God’s way higher than our ways – So we are on earth – looking for a better way – it’s up to us to seek this higher light – this higher truth and live it…
God will NOT force us to do his will – we must of our own free will choose a better way – his way – his will and his power to become like him, there has never been a better way – a higher truth and a more powerful way than that of the Father – even Christ said – I come not do do my will but the will of him who sent me…
“As I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” [John 5:30.] Christ is showing us the way back to the Father – to seek the Father’s will and do it…
19 And now, my beloved brethren, after ye have gotten into this strait and narrow path, I would ask if all is done? Behold, I say unto you, Nay; for ye have not come thus far save it were by the word of Christ with unshaken faith in him, relying wholly upon the merits of him who is mighty to save. 20 Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life. (2 Nephi 31:19-20)
One source wants us to follow God and Goodness – the other wants to destroy us and enslave us – whom will you follow? –
