Control Panel Follow-up

*Where I'm from, the common unwritten thought was "As a man Thinketh." I know the book with the same title contributes to this...The encouragement of "Faith Promoting" literature is 'highly' recommended.
*The celestial kingdom is the goal after we "Do all we can do" in this life; in order to gain godhood. If there is a Priesthood holder in the house who wants to achiever this, then FHE (family home evening) is a mandatory activity.
*Seminary IS voluntary, however, a "good upstanding member" who wishes to go on a mission and get married in the temple, seminary IS necessary! It's another one of those questions, "Do I want to be a god in the celestial kingdom?" If the answer is 'yes', then seminary is more than voluntary.
*The Priesthood holder monitors the TV and what is listened to. Again, "Faith Promoting!" And don't forget the celestial kingdom is at stake here.
*Non member friends are at arms length. "Every member a Missionary" is the rule. Lets not forget the celestial kingdom is the goal in this.
*The church doesn't like members to question authority even though a member has that right. The consequences of this action usually if followed by being released from callings, temple recommend is denied, bishop discipline, and excommunication. These actions are taken against members all the time when they 'question authority'.
*The priesthood holders, again, who wish to gain the celestial kingdom will instruct their family to sing and listen to "Faith Promoting" hymns and songs. Discipline IS a result by those who believe that the family isn't striving for the goal in the heavens.
The accurate information in the "Control Panel" is logical and real. They are factual and there is *no problem*......Unless you want to be part of a cult........

About Me

My photo
Michigan, United States
I spent a lot of time deciding if I should write this blog or not. I'm not a great writer and I'm not going to pretend to be. I need to share what I have learned and I might not make some people happy with what I am saying. This blog is a way for me to release the thoughts and feelings that come with knowing I grew up in the wrong religion. A healing process if you will.

How To Read This Blog

Please start with the month of February 2007 and read backwards. This is the most effective way to understand, in order, why I say what I do.

Handmaidens Creed

1.I believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as one God without beginning or end.
2.I believe the Bible to be the Holy Inspired word of God with full truth and righteousness. No other writing is.
3.I believe that the work of the Lord comes first. Before any temporal thing or person.
4.I believe that grace is a gift and Christ gives that gift freely to all who believe.
5.I believe that the beauty of a woman is contained inside of her and not by what she looks like on the outside.
6.I believe that marriage is sacred and represents the Godhead on earth; two are one just as three are one.
7.I believe that love is more powerful than any other power. Remember, God is love.
8.I believe that tithing is not a part of God's new covenant, free will offerings are. And that doesn't mean just money.
9.I believe that the Aaronic, Levitical, and Melchizedek priesthoods are abolished and Christs Holy Priesthood whom Christ is the "Great High Priest" is eternal.
10.I believe that every believer is a priest in the "Priesthood of Believers".
11.I believe that when two are one, nobody is to separate the one.
12.I believe that Christ is the only way to heaven.
13.I believe that our bodies are temples, not man made buildings.
14.I believe that liars make fools out of others and the liar hates the fool.
15.I believe that all believers are in authority to preach the gospel.
16.I believe that the word 'organization' to describe Christs body is evil and has no place with God.
17.I believe the Americas are not the land of Zion and Christ will return to His origonal land-Israel in the Middle East.
18.I believe that God has set out correct ways of worshiping Him, not man.
19.I believe in holding to the truths of the Bible and not mans understanding of it.
20.I believe that the world is full of evil and Satan can easily gain control over the minds of those who do not profess Christ of the Bible to be their only Messiah.
21.I believe that Saints are those who know the real Savior, Jesus Christ, of whom the Bible speaks of; not the jesus of a cult.
