First let us define the word evolution. Webster's New Collegiate
Evolution: a) A process of change in a certain direction: unfolding.
b) the action or an instance of forming and giving something
off: emission c) a process of continuous change from a lower,
simpler, or worse to a higher, more complex, or better state;
According to Mormon Doctrine by Bruce R. McConkie, p. 251 "Life
did not originate on this earth as the Bible teaches in Genesis.
It was translated from other and older spheres. Men are the literal
spirit children, spirit offspring, of the Eternal Father; they
were born to him as his spirit progeny, as spirit entities having
bodies made of a more pure and refined substance than that comprising
these mortal tabernacles." (Spirits do not have bodies before
they get to earth. According to Mormonism spirits come to earth
to inhabit bodies so they can become a god in their own right.)
The Mormon Doctrine continues: "Furthermore, every form
of life had a spirit existence in that eternal world before it
came to dwell naturally upon the face of the earth. Animals,
plants, fowls, fishes, all forms of life existed as spirit entities
in pre-existence: their number, extent, variety, and form were
known with exactitude before ever the foundations of this earth
were laid. They are all destined to live in their time and season
upon this particular globe." (Moses 3:1-9; D&C 77:1-2)
This teaching parallels the Hermetic occult teachings with
one difference.: the original spirit is an intellectual emanation
of a mind which begins its cycle of necessity by emanating through
mineral life, plant life, animal life and human life. It is called
"soul" that gathers its information necessary to function
as a human through these various stages. That is what Darwin's
evolution is based on. Mormons do not agree with that journey
of the soul but it is similar since all animals and living things
existed in the spirit world before they were physically created
these beliefs have that in common.
Next lets go to Morals and Dogma written by Albert Pike for
Masons.(Published 1964) page 760 to see another similarity or
parallel in teachings: "As man [the unit of Humanity] is
a microcosm.., containing all the Causates of the First Cause..
as the Material Man is the end and completion of all creation,
so in the Divine Man is the beginning thereof
As the inferior
man ascends from the lowest matter even to the First Cause, so
the Superior Adam descends from Simple and Infinite Act, even
to the lowest and most attenuated Potence. The ternary is the
bringing back of duality to unity. Which brings us to the next
Why Do Humans Have To Go Through An Evolutionary Process in
Since God in occult teachings is male and female, the father
and mother of the spirit children, but is in himself a unit,
not a duality. It manifests the First Cause, in Himself profoundly
hidden. The next concept to consider are the Sephiroth, which
emanate immediately from the First Cause, and by its Nature have
produced and do control all the rest. These Sephiroth were put
forth from the One First and Simple, manifesting His Infinite
Goodness. They are mirrors of His Truth, and the analogues of
His Supremest Essence, the Ideas of His Wisdom, and the representation
of His will; the receptacles of His Potency, and the instruments
with which He operates
The reason I'm bringing the Sephiroth into this, is to show
the root of this teaching which is the Kabalah. According to
Hebrews this Kabalah represents the Tree of Life, the forbidden
fruit which cannot be accessed according to the Bible by human
beings until they are begotten like Jesus Christ.
According to these teachings "The First Cause effects,
preserves and governs all things. All things issue forth; the
Souls and Potencies, whereby essence, life, and movement are
given to all things. The principle of Male and Female keep the
balance according to Morals and Dogma page 762. In the Spiritual
world Evil and Good are in equilibrio, and it will be restored,
when of the Evil Good becomes, until all is Good."
Mormons do not believe in hell. They have outer darkness but
because of the Baptism for the Dead and the Endowment rituals,
all human beings have the potential of eternal life in heaven
with the Father irrespective of their beliefs. Even Adolf Hitler
is among those in their records of proxy Baptisms. In fact Mormonism
teaches that families are all bound together through this process,
which attracted me to Mormonism.
According to 33 degree Mason, Albert Pike, the supreme crown
is both sexes, Male and Female... The Universe was out-formed
in the form of Male and Female
The Principle, Hakemah,
is the Generator of all things; and He and Binah conjoin, and
she shines within Him. When they conjoin, she conceives, and
the out-flow is Truth.
The Absolute Holy One, 'Yod' is the beginning and the end
of all things that are.
In the view of the Kabalists, all individuals are contained in
species, and all species in genera, and all particulars in a
Universal, which is an idea, abstracted from all consideration
of individuals; but as it were, an Ens, Entity or Being, ideal
or intellectual, but none the less real; prior to any individual,
containing them all, and out of which they are all in succession
evolved. (page 764) (This doctrine agrees with the Mormon concept).
To go a step further when considering this concept, "the
whole Human race, or Humanity, then existed in the Deity, not
distinguished into individuals, but as a Unity, out of which
the Manifold was to flow. This potentiality was to the Kabalists
a real Ens
This was the Idea or Plan of the Universe..
[Spirits] had to emanate from the Infinite Deity, and be of Himself,
though not His very Self.
On page 765: To understand the Kabalistic idea of "the
Sephiroth, it must be borne in mind that they were assigned,
not only to the world of Emanations, but also to other worlds.."
In the view of the Kabalah, God and the Universe were One,
and in the One General, as the type or source, were included
and involved, and from it have been evolved and issued forth,
the manifold and all particulars
The links of that bind
all created things together are the links of a single Unity,
and the whole Universe is One, developing itself into the manifold
The Kabalah assigns sexual characteristics to the very Deity
as well. .. Page 766 : "The Infinite first limits Himself
by flowing forth in the shape of Will, of determination to act.
This Will of the Deity, or the Deity as will, is .. the first
Sephirah. In it are included all other Emanations
have the Self, flowed forth from Will, from which flows Power
to beget intellectual action.
These emanations (spirits) apparently are male or female because
when they are birthed into a human body they are one or the other.
The goal then becomes to be unified again with a mate that makes
this perfect unit. In Mormonism this unit becomes another god.
In the occult this is what is called "soul mates".
To come to this perfect place this male and female emanation
that each inhabit in a different body is instructed by Deity
to come to a place of perfection to be eternally married to the
perfect mate in the Mormon Temple to be ushered back into the
celestial heaven to receive a planet to create a place for the
spirits that they conceive. These spirits will need bodies as
well to go through this evolutionary process.
Dear Mormon, are you beginning to see that Mormonism is an
evolutionary process. Mormonism also has its root in the Kabalah
that teaches pantheism. According to Webster's Dictionary, 1)
"Pantheism is a doctrine that equates God with the forces
and laws of the universe. 2) the worship of all gods of different
creeds, cults, or peoples indifferently: also toleration of worship
of all gods."
Mormonism has to be pantheism because the emanation [spirits]
are ultimately fused back to the origin since the whole universe
is God. It was contained in Him before it was manifested and
is bound together by links to this Single Unity. Because this
concept includes all, animals, plants, etc. worhsipping the earth
is part of this as well.
Mormons wear the compass and square embroidered into their
temple garments. This symbol represents the male and female unity.
To begin with, these tools were used to draw circles for astrological
purposes. Page 850 "Morals and Dogma" the head [of
the compass] is the Sun, and by that becomes head of the female.
The female is represented by the Moon and the square. "
In plain English the way the square is located in the symbolism,
the spread out legs represented by the square (female) lies under
the male, represented by the compass. The symbol denotes intercourse.
"The square, .. is the appropriate symbol as well for
this Earth, Mother Earth. The Compass is .. the Heavens. Heaven
and Earth, represent God as the most ancient of the Deities,
Satan is symbolized as well as a Hermaphroditic figure and
a symbol of the double nature anciently assigned to the Deity,
as Generator and Producer, as Brahm and Maya among the Aryans,
Osiris and Isis among the Egyptians. The Sun the male, the Moon
the female, were identified with Osiris and Isis, father and
mother of the big G, part of the Masonic symbol, but left out
of the Mormon compass and square, is Horus the offspring.
Page 851 of Morals and Dogma, "From Heaven come the spiritual
and immortal portion of man; from the Earth his material and
mortal portion. The Hebrew Genesis says that Yehouah formed man
of the dust of the earth, and breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life. 'Through the seven planetary spheres, represented
by the Mystic Ladder of the Mithriac Initiations, and by that
which Jacob saw in his dream (not with three, but with seven
steps), the Souls, emanating from the Deity, descended, to be
united to their human bodies; and through those seven spheres
they must re-ascend, to return to their origin and home in the
bosom of the Deity."
By now it should be completely obvious to you that Jesus Christ
has no function in this system whatsoever. The Church calls itself
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Here is another proof that the Mormons do not agree with the
Bible even though they sport it as one of their doctrines. Page
169 of Mormon Doctrine: Creation: "It is an utterly false
and uninspired notion to believe that the world or any other
thing was created out of nothing or that any created thing can
be destroyed in the sense of an annihilation. (D&C 93:33)
.. "This earth was not the first of the Lord's creations.
An infinite number of worlds have come rolling into existence
at his command. Each is an earth;; many are inhabited with his
spirit children; each abides the particular law given to it;
and each will play its part in the redemption, salvation, and
exaltation of that infinite host of the children of an Almighty
God. The Lord has said that his work and glory is to bring to
pass immortality and eternal life for his children on all the
inhabited worlds he has created. (Moses 1:27-40; 7:29-36; D&C
Looking at 'Hell' on page 349 these wicked spirits are in the
spirit world only and are awaiting the eventual day of their
Hell will have an end.. but hell must deliver
up its captive spirits, and the grave must deliver up its captive
bodies, and the bodies and the spirits of men will be restored
one to the other." (2 Ne. 9:10-12) .. After their resurrection,
the great majority of those who suffered in hell will pass into
the telestial kingdom." In Mormonism the telestial kingdom
is much like the life we have on earth.
Now lets see what the Bible has to say:
1 Corinthians 15:45-50 And so it is written, The first man Adam
was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which
is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first
man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from
heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy:
and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear
the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh
and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:
HOW IMPORTANT IS THE KJV BIBLE:
John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with
God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with
God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any
thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the
light of men.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and
we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father,) full of grace and truth.
CREATION OF MAN
Genesis 1:26-27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after
our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the
sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over
all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon
the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image
of God created he him; male and female created he them.
John 3:5-6 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except
a man be born of water (1. NATURAL BIRTH) and of the Spirit (2.
SPIRITUAL BIRTH), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That
which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of
the Spirit is spirit.
Notice here 'born of the Spirit' Spirit starts with a capital
letter because God is a triune God. God the Father, God the Son
and God the Holy Spirit.
God told us to worship Him in spirit because Jehovah God is a
Spirit. He does not have a physical body as Mormon's believe.
Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God
in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence
in the flesh.
MORMONS DO NOT EVER TALK ABOUT THE CIRCUMCISION
WHAT IS IT? DID YOU KNOW WITHOUT THE CIRCUMCISION YOU HAVE NO
Speaking of the circumcision that all Israel was to undergo according
to the Old Testament teachings about Abraham, was a physical
circumcision to remind them that they belonged to God. Since
they rebelled, it became worthless.
Romans 2:25-29 "For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou
keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision
is made uncircumcision. Therefore if the uncircumcision keep
the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be
counted for circumcision? And shall not uncircumcision which
is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter
and circumcision dost transgress the law?
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that
circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew,
which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart,
in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of
men, but of God.
TRUTH: WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
Mark 12:32-33 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou
hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none
other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all
the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength,
and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole
burnt offerings and sacrifices.
John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his
deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
HOW CAN WE DO TRUTH IF WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS?
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and
the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:16-18 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even
the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it
seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth
with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless:
I will come to you.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he
will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will
shew you things to come.
Jesus prayed to Heavenly Father in John 17:11-26 "And
now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and
I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those
whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. While
I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those
that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but
the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world,
that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because
they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray
not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that
thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world,
even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth:
thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even
so have I also sent them into the world.
And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be
sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone,
but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in
thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe
that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I
have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I
in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one;
and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast
loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also,
whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may
behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me
before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have
known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And
I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that
the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in
DID JESUS COME FOR ALL?
John 8:44-47 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of
your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning,
and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar,
and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe
me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth,
why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words:
ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
Romans 1:17-26 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed
from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by
faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all
ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in
unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest
in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible
things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen,
being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal
power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God,
neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations,
and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to
be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible
God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds,
and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also
gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts,
to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed
the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature
more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this
cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women
did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO GET FORGIVENESS?
Matthew 4:17 "From that time Jesus began to preach, and
to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
JESUS REPRESENTS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.
Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all
Acts 3:17-19 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance
ye did it, as did also your rulers. But those things, which God
before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ
should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and
be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times
of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS IMPUTED, NOT EARNED
Romans 4:16-25 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by
grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed;
not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which
is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As
it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before
him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and
calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against
hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many
nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed
be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body
now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet
the deadness of Sara's womb:
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but
was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded
that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And
therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was
not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; But
for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him
that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered
for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies
of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be
not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing
of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.
Praying for your salvation,
humbly in Christ Jesus
