WHY I LEFT THE MORMON CHURCH

by Darrick T. Evenson
former Mormon missionary
author of "The Gainsayers"


Dear Reader,

Since the age of 16, I have been a Seeker of Truth. I've studied all the religions of the world, in great detail. I believed that "truth" is not subject to what family a person is born into, nor what country, nor what religion. Very few people are "Seekers" like me, which is good, since nothing practical would ever get done, and humanity would suffer. Perhaps only 1 in 10,000 people are Seekers of Truth. The rest of the population are not seekers, but rather sheep. They follow the religion they were born into. Or, they are shoppers, they follow a religion that suits their fancies. Or, they are sleepers; they follow no religion, but are "asleep" concerning the things of God. They care nothing of the Other World, but only the cares of this life.

At age 18 I joined the Mormon Church, whose official name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I joined it because of the wonderful things I had read in Reader's Digest articles about Mormons:

*They did not smoke or drink

*They did not have sex outside of marriage.

*They were honest and humble.

Over the 15 years I was a Mormon, and during the following years I was around Mormons, I came to find out that the Reader's Digest articles were not factual. Most Mormons were NOT honest and humble. Most had sex outside of marriage; either pre-marital sex, or post-marital sex. True, active Mormons did not smoke, but a few of them drank. I discovered that only about 10% of the active Mormons I knew fit with the Reader's Digest discriptions. I discovered later that the Reader's Digest articles were written by the Church's Public Affairs Department. These were advertisements!

Only after being a Mormon for a few months, I ran into anti-Mormon material at a local Christian bookstore. I was devastated! I left activity from the Church for 17 months and read all I could. Eventually, I found that the Anti-Mormons had lied or exaggerated about a number of issues, and that several prominent anti-Mormon men (Ed Decker and Walter Martin) had lied about many, many things, including their own backgrounds. This led me to return to the Church. My feeling then was that if Anti-Mormons were liars, then Mormonism had to be true. I had a simplistic "black and white" view then.

I was active for about two years, then was called on a mission. I served a mission to San Jose and San Francisco California (it was one mission back then) for 18 months during 1983-85. Although I had some good times on my mission, I became disillusioned with most of my companions, and with the Church itself in the area. They did NOT preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Rather, they preached the "Gospel of Gain"; that the Church could help you become RICH, and that was the goal of the Mormons met on my mission. The behavior and attitude of most of my companions was appauling. These were young men who had led immoral lives. They lied. A few of them were absolutely HORRIBLE individuals. A few were very nice guys! However, I simply became disillusioned by Mormons and the Church during this time.

During this time "The God Makers" anti-Mormon film was going through the areas of my mission, and enraging many Evangelicals. We had many negative incidents with Evangelicals, especially "bulky" Evangelical men who'd threaten us, or spit on us, or try to run us off the road. One Baptist pastor slapped my companion in the face while my companion was giving his testimony. Another young "Christian" boy tried to slug me in the testicles when we came to a "Christian" door, his parents thinking it was "cute". They believed the lies of Ed Decker in "The God Makers". Evangelicals are some of the most ignorant people who ever existed. They remind me of the stupid Fundamentalist Muslims who believe the lies of Al-Qaeda. As ignorant as stone.

When I returned from my mission(which I served honorably), I tried to get active in the Church again, but it was very difficult. I did not feel the Spirit. At Church everyone was speaking about how to become "successful in life" as if that was the purpose of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I knew it was not.

I was bothered by some incidents on my mission. I remember reading in the book Mormon Doctrine statements that seemed to say that God the Father came down and had sex with Mary, his spirit-daughter. That disgusted me beyond words. The other missionaries it did not bother at all. Indeed, over the years, I would discover Mormon men who thought it wonderful to think they would become Gods and have sex with their own spirit-daughters one day, in addition to their many wives. That disgusted me beyond measure. I convinced myself at the time that all these men were WRONG, and that I only had to inform the First Presidency of the Church of this, and they would be as offended as I was.

I was naíve!

Little did I know at the time that the Apostles of the Church believed just as the missionaries did, that they would have the "privilege" of having sex with some of their own spirit-daughters, to produce saviors for the worlds they create, after those worlds fall.

When I returned from my mission I convinced myself that if I got active in Church again all would be well. So, I wrote The Gainsayers: A Converted Anti-Mormon Responds to Critics of the LDS Church. I submitted it to Deseret Book and all the other LDS publishers, and it was rejected. I did not know at the time that Mormons do not want answers to Anti-Mormon questions. They handle anti-Mormon questions not with answers, but with denial, and "ignorance" (they ignore it). Church leaders as well do not assign anyone to answer Anti-Mormon questions. They just ignore it and tell Members confused by anti-Mormon questions "Ask your bishop" but the bishops don't answer either, they just say: "Look, don't worry about it! Attend your meetings, pay your tithing, and you'll be blessed!" That is their answer for everything.

Eventually, years later, the book was published. The son of Duane Crowther, owner of Horizon Publishers, had a beautiful fiancee, a girl going to BYU. Well, the girl's parents (who were not LDS) sent her "The God Makers" book. She read it, and resigned from the Church. She told the boy to leave Mormonism too, or she would not marry him. He stayed, but was devastated.

In 1987 I had met a recently divorced man named "Larry". We became roommates. He was a BYU grad. Over the next two years, while we were roommates, I became absolutely DISillusioned with Mormon women. I saw many of them jump into bed with Larry. Many of them lied to me. I was attending a Young Adult Ward in an affluent area at this time. Larry told me stories about girls at BYU that I could not believe, until I saw it for myself. I learned later that Larry was an "Alpha Male" and that women, all women, and all female mammals, try to MATE with Alpha Males whenever they can. I saw this was true for Mormon women as well. When it came to Alpha Males, religion and morality went out the window. Anyway, Larry caused a great "scandal" in the Young Adult Ward (Bellevue 8th Ward) because he had slept with a large protion of the Relief Society of that Ward. All the girls thought Larry loved "them" only. When they started to compare notes, things went South. Many started to turn in Larry, who called them all "liars". The bishop at the time was a good man, and tried to clean things up, and he scheduled many Church Courts for many of the young women of the Ward. But, one of these girls who had slept with Larry was the daughter of a member of the High Council, a very wealthy and important man who had friends in high places in Salt Lake City. The bishop was "released" only after serving 8 months, and all the Church Courts were cancelled.

At this point I became inactive again, TOTALLY disillusioned with Mormons, and Mormonism. This was late 1989. I was then informed that my book, The Gainsayers, was going to be published. I thought, "Ok, that's fine!" My feeling at the time was a book exposing the lies of Ed Decker was a good thing. Although I was "disillusioned" with Mormonism, my feeling at the time was that it could still do lots of people some good. So, I did not object to the book being published. I sold the copyright of the book for $400 to a man in Las Vegas. I needed the $400 at the time to fix my car.

In late 1989 I was also ghost-writing several books. One book I was ghost-writing was called New Age Messiah Identified; an expose' of the New Age Movement. Later, anti-Mormons used this fact to try to "discredit" me as a Mormon writer. I told them I was NOT a Mormon. This was true, since I did not go to Church, and did not call myself a Mormon, although I had not formally resigned. They did not care. Anti-Mormons Jerald Tanner and others wrote articles saying that I was a "fraud" because in the book New Age Messiah Identified I claimed that in 1984 I was a New Ager, but I was REALLY on a mission in California as a Mormon missionary.

The TRUTH of course is that a "ghost-writer" is NOT the person in the book! For example, most celebrity books are NOT written by celebrities, but by ghost-writers! For example, in O.J. Simpson's book If I Did It! he writes in the first person. Yet, this book was NOT written by O.J., but by a ghost-writer!

Of course, Jerald Tanner KNEW HE WAS LYING when he wrote his article "exposing" me. But he did not care. Other anti-Mormons gleaned from his research to write their own expose's, each telling bigger lies than the one before.

In 1994 I became a Baha'i, a follower of Baha'u'llah, the Prophet of Persia. I became a Baha'i because Joseph Smith had prophesied, on several occassions, that Christ would return in 1891, the very year Baha'u'llah, who claimed to be Christ-returned, announced to the world that he was Christ returned. So, either Joseph Smith's prophecy was fulfilled, or Joseph Smith was a false prophet. I became a Baha'i because THAT was the ONLY way I could hang on to any believe that Joseph Smith was inspired of God.

Of course, Mormons don't think that way. Had Joseph Smith given 10,000 direct prophecies, and each and every one FAILED, that would not concern Mormons abit. They would simply "ignore" the prophecies altogether and go about their business. The few Mormon intellectuals would come up with 10,000 "explain aways" to explain why the prophecies were TRUE, but unfulfilled. I discovered that anytime a false prophet gives a prophecy that FAILS, the faithful followers always say, "Well, that was a TRUE prophecy, and WOULD have come true, but WE WEREN'T READY!" Seventh-day Adventists say that about the failed prophecies of their "prophetess" Ellen G. White. The Jehovah's Witnesses use the same excuse ("We weren't ready!") to explain why their Prophet (the Governing Body of the Watchtower) gave failed prophecies concerning Christ's return, etc.

Mormons are not different. They ignore or explain-away, sometimes in the most ridiculous of mind-bongling mental-gymnastics!

was not really a religion. The Baha'i Faith was more of a World Peace/Race Unity club. Baha'is were very Liberal. Even though Baha'u'llah was pro-Life, the Baha'is were pro-Choice. Even though Baha'u'llah was Anti-homosexual, the Baha'is ignored this, and were pro-Gay. Even though Baha'u'llah wrote that Jesus Christ offered His blood on the Cross to SAVE ALL HUMANITY, Baha'is reject this, and teach that Jesus came merely to "preach peace and improve the status of minorities and women".

The Baha'i leadership IGNORED every directive of Baha'u'llah, every Holy Law, that contradicted 20th century Western Liberal thought. Everything. I KNEW this was not the truth. As a Mormon, Baha'is thought Mormons wer HORRIBLE racists and sexists...worse than the Ku Klux Klan. I tried to enlighten them, but often they IGNORED what I said. Some even SCREAMED while I tried to speak. These people were DUPES of the worst sort, thinking themselves enlighted beings, but dupes of the lowest kind.

From 1998 to 2005 I was no religion. I still believed in the basics of Christianity, but I did not believe in any of the churches I had studied, and I'd studied them all. As a Mormon, many Evangelicals would say, "Look, YOU DON'T NEED A CHURCH! All you need is Jesus!" So, for a time I called myself an "Independent Christian" but the Evangelicals would say, "Look! IF YOU WERE __REALLY A CHRISTIAN___ (they said this was sarcasm) you'd belong to a Bible-believing Church!"

I could not see how sitting in a pew every Sunday, giving money to a man to give me a "sermon" (his own spin on what the Bible says) made me a "Christian". I did not see how raising up my arms saying "Praise Jesus!" over and over again made me a Christian.

For awhile I considered becoming an officer (minister) of the Salvation Army. I saw that the Salvation Army actually DID things. After all, Jesus never once said, "Praise me with uplifted arms every Sunday, and ye shall be my disciples!" He did NOT say that. He said, "Cloth the naked, feed the hungry, do the will of my Father in heaven!"

It seemed to be as if the Salvation Army was doing the will of His Father in Heaven, more than others. So, I went to a few Sunday services. But, the banging on the instruments I could not take. I could not handle it. If the Salvation Army did not have all the clapping and banging and shouting, I'd probably join it. However, I couldn't take it. So, I never joined it.

Over the years I studied all the religions of the world intensively. I wanted to hang-on to my belief that Joseph Smith was still inspired of God. But, the more I learned about him, the more disillusioned I became with him. I learned...

*He married his own foster-daughters, the Lawrence sisters, aged 14 and 16, and, according to William Law, the 2nd Counsellor in the First Presidency, Joseph Smith stole their inheritance money as well.

*During the time Joseph Smith had 33 "wives" he publicly denied he had more than one wife.

*He did boast he did more than any man,including Jesus Christ.

The more I studied the life and sermons of Brigham Young, the more I became convinced he was a robber-baron, a "mafia" leader more than a prophet. He even DENIED being a prophet, in General Conference, twice!

I saw in Mormonism thousands of contradictions. Too many. For example:

*Mormonism of today contradicts The Book of Mormon,which teaches there is only One God, Hell is eternal, one must be born-again to become a son or daughter of God. Mormonism today rejects all of this.

*The LDS Church says Brigham Young was a Prophet, but BY himself denied he was! He taught many things that the Church now says are "false" such as Adam-God, Blood Atonement, Negroes are cursed, etc.

*Mormon Leaders (from the "Living Prophet" to bishops) claim to have "the Spirit of Discernment" yet, Mormon leaders were FOOLED for five years by Mark Hoffman, the forger/murderer/bomber of Salt Lake City. Read "The Mormon Murders" (available via Amazon.com or in most public libraries) and you will see that Gordon B. Hinckley was FOOLED by Hofmann for over five years!

*Mormons believe in being "honest and chaste" but my observations showed that Mormon frequently lied, and single Mormons were almost always UNCHASTE. Most Mormon single men I knew well had very full sexual lives, and the Mormon women I knew chased them, and chased rich men, just like "wordly" women do.

*Mormon leaders taught for 130 years the "Negroes" were the children of Cain, and under the "Curse of Cain". Now, LDS Church Public Affairs, and the Missionary Dept., both say, "The Church NEVER taught that. Some Members may have believed it, but not Church leaders". THIS IS A "BIG LIE"!!! Lying in the name of Jesus every single day!

Back in 2003 I finally came across a book in the Salt Lake City library. In the book I read an excerpt from a 16th century book titled The Book of Madoc, a fictional account by John Dee of the exploits of Prince Madoc of Whales, who allegedly sailed to America in the 12th century and established a colony.

In the Book of Madoc there is a STRIKING PARALLEL with 1 Nephi 1:1. I knew it was too close to be mere coincident. Whoever wrote The Book of Mormon had read The Book of Madoc, and copied a verse!

So....I finally found "the smoking gun" that proved The Book of Mormon to be fictional.

For years I had had doubts about The Book of Mormon being historical, for the following reasons:

*Ancient America had no oxen, asses, or sheep, as the Book of Mormon claims.

*American Indians are Asians, closely related to the Chinese and Siberian natives. They have folded eyelids, hairless bodies, and Mongonlian "dots" on their tailbones,just like other Asians. Recent DNA studies show they have no Semitic ancestry whatsoever. Not even a little. No one "gene".

*Although a few Semitic looking "types" in stone carvings have been found in Central or South America, these were probably Phoenecian sailors who landed, not Jews. There is absolutely NO evidence (zero) that a large population of Semites ever lived anywhere in the Americas before Columbus. Nothing.

Most Mormons never "think" about it. But, for those who have spent years in research, everything that is known about ancient America contradicts the claims of The Book of Mormon.

This is NOT to say that anti-Mormons don't lie! Most do. Anti-Mormons can be classed into three categories:

1) Con-men (Ed Decker, etc.

2) Atheists who pretend to be Christians in order to get money from Christians to support their research and buy their publications (Jerald and Sandra Tanner, etc.)

3) Christians

Anti-Mormons who are type #1 or #2 LIE ALL THE TIME! They don't believe in God nor Jesus. They are doing this for money, or doing this out of spite. Only the Christians are "honest". But even they are not "careful" often in their research, and sometimes border on disonesty with the excuse that, "If Mormonism is false...what harm is there to lie about it?"

By 2003 I had to come to the conclusion that The Book of Mormon was NOT ancient history. But, then again, neither is the story of Adam and Eve. Long ago I'd come to the conclusion that the story of Adam and Eve was a parable and not literal history. I could NOT believe the following:

*The Earth is only 6,000 years old.

*All the races of mankind came from one male/female "white European" looking couple.

*The flood covered Mount Everest and killed all animals save those Noah had on his ark.

*Snakes originated with a male talking snake who walked upright and talked to Eve and seduced her with an apple.

I just could not believe such foolish things. I studied Creation-Science literature, only to find out later most of it is PURE BUNK!

Even though by 2003 I had come to the conclusion that The Book of Mormon was FICTION, I still held on to it as a parable about America. I saw in America what was happened in The Book of Mormon: a group of Whites who became rich and self-righteous, who equated wealth with Godliness, who, over a course of many centuries, were UTTERLY DESTROYED by dark-skinned peoples.

I saw this was happening to America! The Whites of America ware selfish, lovers of wealth, like the Nephites. They are prideful, self-righteous, and equate wealth with Godliness. Soon, in the next 50 years, the Whites of America will became a small minority. Eventually, they will close themselves off in "fort" like structures, to protect themselves from the dark-skinned races. Eventually, I believe, many "wars" will take place in America between a small White wealthy minority, and the poor dark-skinned majority, and that dark-skinned masses will eventually ANNIHILATE the Whites, as the Lamanites do in the Book of Mormon.

I began to see The Book of Mormon as a prophetic parable about America.

But, I knew that the "Prophets" of the Mormon Church was NOT Prophets. They did not prophesy. They did not see visions. They did not receive "Revelation". If Joseph Smith was a false prophet, how can his successors be TRUE Prophets?

Maybe Joseph Smith was a true Prophet, but a "fallen" one?

Maybe he was a false prophet, but I still saw the Book of Mormon as an inspired prophetic parable about the future of America.

Who then wrote The Book of Mormon? If Joseph Smith was a FALSE prophet, how could he write a TRUE prophetic parable about America?

I then did more research, and I discovered that The Book of Mormon had striking parallels to a book written by on Ethan Smith, the former pastor of the Oliver Cowdery family of Vermont. Oliver Cowdery was the "scribe" that transcribed most of the Book of Mormon.

There are great similarities between a book by Ethan Smith called "View of the Hebrews" and The Book of Mormon. Ethan Smith was the pastor of a church attended by the Cowdery family in Vermont. In 1826 Ethan Smith was in Palmyra, New York, for business unknown. Ethan Smith was very highly educated, and had studied Hebrew for years. He graduated from Dartmouth College.

Whoever wrote The Book of Mormon knew Hebrew well. He also knew Christian theology well, and he knew history well. The Book of Mormon has historical parallels with early colonial American history. Ethan Smith studied history, theology, and Hebrew at Dartmouth.

In 1826, in upstate New York, there was a growing anti-Masonic movement. At that time, the anti-Masons believed that the Masons had killed two men, William MORgan and Timothy MONroe, who were "martyrs" in the anti-Masonic cause. Morgan was a former Mason writing and expose' of Freemasonry. His scribe on the project was Oliver Cowdery, who later became the scribe of Joseph Smith, who, later married William Morgan's widow as a plural wife in Nauvoo.

All "mere" coincidence?

I believe that the true author of The Book of Mormon is not Solomon Spalding, nor Sidney Rigdon, but Ethan Smith, who appeared in Palmyra the very month and year that "Moroni" gave the gold plates to Joseph Smith.

Ethan Smith had two goals:

1) To convert the Indians (whom he thought were Hebrews...a mistake since the Indians are Asians and not Semites).

2) To overthrow Freemasonry in America, whom he considered to be "secret combinations" which would destroy America.

Ethan Smith was very anti-Masonic, and referred to Freemasonry as a "secret combination"; a term found in The Book of Mormon. In 1826, in upstate New York, there was a growing anti-Masonic movement. At that time, the anti-Masons believed that the Masons had killed two men, William MORgan and Timothy MONroe, who were "martyrs" in the anti-Masonic cause. Morgan was a former Mason writing and expose' of Freemasonry. His scribe on the project was Oliver Cowdery, who later became the scribe of Joseph Smith, who, later married William Morgan's widow as a plural wife in Nauvoo.

I believe that the true author of The Book of Mormon is NOT Solomon Spalding, nor Sidney Rigdon, but the Rev. Ethan Smith.

Ethan Smith had two goals:

1) To convert the Indians (whom he thought were Hebrews...a mistake the Indians are Asians and not Semites).

2) To overthrow Freemasonry in America, whom he considered to be "secret combinations" which would destroy America.

Ethan Smith was very anti-Masonic, and referred to Freemasonry as a "secret combination"; a term found in The Book of Mormon.

In the Book of Mormon, we have Alma and Alma the Younger, whose exploits are very similar to those of ALexander MAck and ALexander MAck "The Younger"; the founder and son of the German Dunkers (Church of the Brethren). The son of ALMA the Younger in the Book of Mormon was "Corianton". The son of Alexander Mack called "The Younger" (a term used before "Junior" became popular) was Cory Anton Mack.

There are many similarities in The Book of Mormon to battles between English settlers and Indians (allied to the French) in the French- Indian war of the 1750s.

The first verse of The Book of Mormon has a strong parallel with a 16th century book by John Dee called "The Book of Madoc": a fictional account of a Welsh prince who sails to America in the 12th century A.D.

In the Book of Mormon, Nephi writes:

"I Nephi, being born of goodly parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father; and having seen many afflictions in the course of my days, nevertheless, having been highly favored of the Lord in all my days; yea, having had a great knowledge of the goodness and the mysteries of God, therefore I make a record of the proceeding of my days". (1 Nephi 1:1)

"I, Madoc, born of goodly parents, was taught somewhat in the learning of my father, nevertheless having seen many afflictions, therefore I make a record in my day as a vagabond upon the face of the earth." (Madoc 3:1) Madoc was a Welsh prince who purportedly sailed to America in the 12th century. They had wars with the Indians. The son of Madoc was Mor Awnyry (pronounced "More-On-ih-rih").

Whoever wrote The Book of Mormon had read The Book of Madoc, a book probably available at Dartmouth in the late 18th century.

In The Book of Mormon one finds the "Testimony of the Eleven Witnesses" and the "Testimony of the Three Witnesses". One of the Three was David Whitmer. Of the Evelven Witnesses, eight were sons (and one son-in-law) of Peter Whitmer Sr.

The Book of Mormon was "translated" at a Whitmer Farm in Harmony, Pennsylvania. The Church of Christ (later changed to "Church of the Latter-day Saints" and later changed to "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints"), was organized in Fayette New York, on a Whitmer Farm.

Before becoming Mormons, the Whitmers were members of the "Dunkers" otherwise known as the "Tunkers" or "German Brethren" or "The Church of the Brethren".

Part of the Church of the Brethren included the Zionitic Brotherhood, an Order of German Protestant monks who claimed to have the "Order of Melchizedek" priesthood dating back to early Christian times. The Zionitic Brotherhood was headquartered in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, and was established there in 1659 A.D. They had a wooden "Temple" were sacred secret rites were performed, and baptisms for the dead. Peter Whitmer, the father of David Whitmer, Peter Whitmer Jr., John Whitmer, Jacob Whitmer, had been one time a member of the Order of Melchizedek, before he left the Order as a young man and married.

The Zionitic Brotherhood included male and female monks, who wore all white. Their temple rituals included prayer circles, and white veils one had to pass through.

Archaeology is squarely AGAINST The Book of Mormon being historical. For example:

*The Book of Mormon mentions sheep, oxen, and asses. None of these animals ever existed in the Americas before the Spanish. If the Nephites existed, then they would have had, over a span of 1000 yeas, MILLIONS of sheep, asses (donkies), and oxen. Yet, not one bone has been found of these animals in the New World, before the time of Columbus and the Spanish settlers.

*Ancient America had small horses 10,000 years ago, and Mastadons and wolly mammoths about 13,000 years ago. America had mountain goats too, but not the domesticated "Asian" goat.

*Some Mormon apologists have suggested that the Nephites plowed their fields with Bison, and had llamas and alpacas for sheep, and used deer to ride and pull their chariots! ;) But Bison lived in North America north of the Rio Grande, and llamas and alpacas existed in the Andes mountains in South America. The two were never within 4,000 miles of each other. Also, deer cannot be ridden.

*The BOM claims that the "Lamanites" are really Hebrews. Yet, the American Indians are Asians, closely related to the Tuvan people of Siberian. American Indians are body-hairless, slanted eyed, and have a "Mongolian Dot" on their tailbone, just like other Asians (Chinese, Japanese, etc.). Their culture, language, DNA, is Asian, not Semitic as one would think if they were descendants of Hebrews (a white-skinned hairy-bodied race of Caucasians).

Mormon apologists "deal" with the fact that American Indians are Asians, and have NOT ONE SEMITIC GENE in their DNA by saying that "God changed their DNA". As punishment, God changed them from white-skinned hairy Semites into dark-skinned Asians ("poof"). This is why they DNA, language, culture, religion, etc., has NO relationship whatever to the Hebrews.

Will true believing Mormons accept these FACTS?

No.

Why?

Most Mormons think like this:

This CAN'T be true since...
1) If the Book of Mormon is false then...
2) Mormonism is false then..
3) Christianity is false then..
4) There is no God then...
5) Life has no purpose so..
6) This CANNOT be true!
7) The author (me) must be a LIAR!!!

When ignorant people don't wish to accept the truth...they don't! They attack the Messenger.

This is NOT logical. It is ANTI-logic. The following is logical:

1) If the Book of Mormon is NOT true history then...
2) Joseph Smith was NOT a true prophet then...
3) Gordon B. Hinckley is NOT a true prophet then...
4) My temple-going and meeting attending and tithe-paying earns me NO heavenly rewards in the Afterlife and....
5) My temple sealings will mean NOTHING in the Afterlife so...
6) The Church therefore CANNOT "bless" me in this life nor the Afterlife But...
7) This does NOT mean that God does not exist, NOR does that mean that truth is not upon the Earth! This means ONLY that "The Church" is not what I was told it was and NOT what I have believed it was.

THAT is logic, something the True Believing Mormon CANNOT grasp! They CANNOT grasp the logic of this, but will rely on total IGNORANCE and an illogical thought pattern. They will ATTACK THE MESSENGER who tells them Truth.

They will call the TRUTH a LIE, and the LIE the TRUTH, because it suits their desires.

But TRUTH is NOT determined by our "wants/desires/fancies". Truth is reality, and independent of our wants.

But the Mormon will say, "But I KNOW the Church is TRUE, because I have been BLESSED by God!"

Most Mormons believe that God has "blessed" them already. For example, if a male Mormon procures a sexy female for marriage, this is "proof" to him that God has "blessed" him therefore the Church is True! Polygamists believe the same thing when they procure multiple attractive women....God is obviously "blessing" them so "I must BE IN THE TRUTH!"

Mormons equate the CHURCH with TRUTH. They mean the same thing exactly. "I have the TRUTH" means "I HAVE THE CHURCH". Seventh-day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and others believe the exact same thing about their organizations.

The Book of Mormon is NOT historical!!! The American Indians have NO Semitic blood in them. Not one "gene". The animals mentioned in the Book of Mormon (oxen, asses, sheep) did NOT exist in the Americas before the Spanish brought them.

The Book of Mormon was written by a highly educated Christian man, who understood the Bible and bibilical Hebrew, as a "jeremiad"; a parable about the whites and Indians of America. The author feared that the Indians would overrun the white settlers (this happened in many areas during the French-Indian wars in the 1750s) and annihilate them. The author feared that Freemasonry ("secret combination") would destroy the Republic. He named the book in honor of the two Anti-Masonic "martyrs": William MORgan and Timothy MONroe.

Ethan Smith wanted to convince White Americas that they were in error. He wanted to solve the questions of the day that were dividing Christians (is baptism by immersion or sprinkling, infant batism, etc.). He wante to convert the Indians. He wanted to convince Americans that Freemasonry ("secret combinations") were evil and would lead to the ruining of the Repubic. To do this he wrote a JEREMIAD, a parable.

I believe that there were BRASS PLATES, which, went polished, appeared as Gold. But these were not ancient. They were manufactured.

I believe that Sidney Rigdon had some contact with Ethan Smith, Ethan Smith with Oliver Cowdery, Cowdery with Joseph Smith, and the rest....is history.

I see The Book of Mormon as what is called a PIOUS FRAUD, a fraud NOT to make money (Ethan Smith made NO money on this venture), but a fraud for "pious" reasons:

*To unite Christians and end controversies among them.

*To convert the Indians to Christianity.

*To convince Americans to abandon Freemasonry.

Of course, The Book of Mormon did NONE of the things it was written to do. Christians were not united. Indians were not converted (at least not by The Book of Mormon, but rather by Protestant Christian missionary societies). Americans did NOT abandon Freemasonry nor other "Secret Combinations". Indeed, most American presidents were Freemasons, and many in government are members of the "Skull and Bones" a "secret combination" at Yale University.

Mormons will of course OBJECT vehemently, and either IGNORE the evidence and/or attack the messenger (me). But Mormons are unaware that the Church itself has engaged in "pious fraud" a number of times. The most recent occassion is how the LDS Church is now telling non-mormon inquirers "The Church NEVER taught that blacks are cursed!" That is FRAUD, but, LDS Church leaders believe it is necessary fraud in order to achieve "good" which is to increase Church Membership among blacks here and abroad. In other words, it is ok to lie if you are BLESSING others. .....If the Church can practice PIOUS FRAUD today, why can't the Church be founded upon PIOUS FRAUD?

Most Mormons I knew, on a personal level, practiced PIOUS FRAUD. All of my single male Mormon roommates had pre-marital sex. When asked by their bishop "Are you worthy?" they replied "yes". They convinced themselves that if "nobody knew" it was ok. They told me "Everybody does this Darrick...if you could, you would too!" Most Mormon women I asked for dates LIED to me, telling me "I have a boyfriend" when in fact they did not, and they would date my roommate later. I would ask them, "Why did you lie to me?" They said, "I didn't want to HURT YOUR FEELINGS!" Another case of PIOUS FRAUD.

It is somewhat ironic that Mormonism began as a PIOUS FRAUD, and most Mormons (at least the ones I knew personally) practiced Pious Fraud on a daily basis.

From the years of research I've done, I've discovered the following:

*After writing "Manuscript Found at Conneaut Creek" (rediscovered in 1901 in the basement of Oberlin College), Solomon Spalding (according to his own daughter) wrote another book titled "Manuscript Found in the Wilds of Mormon". According to Spaulding's wife, Sidney Rigdon STOLE this manuscript from the Patterson&Lamdin printer's office in Pittsburg in 1822. Years later, a neighbor of Joseph Smith, Lorenzo Saunders, sees Sidney Rigdon with Joseph Smith, Oliver Cowdery, and "an unknown man" at the Smith farm house in 1826.

We know that Ethan Smith was in Palmyra, for some unknown reason, in the very month and year that the Angel Moroni gave the gold plates to Joseph Smith.

Another...."mere" coincidence?

Sidney Rigdon was know committed "PIOUS FRAUD" many times in his life, by his own admission. To become pastor of a Baptist Church in Pittsburg he pretended to speak in tongues, later admitting he was just pretending.

After Joseph Smith was killed in 1844, he tried to take control of the Church as "Guardian" until "Young Joseph" (Joseph Smith III) was old enough to lead it. When he lost to Brigham Young, he left the Church and started the "Church of Christ" in Pittsburg. He claimed to receive many Revelations, but they contradicted each other so badly that his own followers left him and disgarded his revelations (this Church still exists and is called "The Church of Jesus Christ").

Either the Revelations received by Sidney Rigdon were of God, the devil, or he lied about receiving them.

In A Defense of My Grounds for Separating Myself from the Latter Day Saints, a pamphlet purportedly written by Oliver Cowdery after Cowdery was excommunicated (Mormon sourses say Cowdery was excommunicated for counterfeiting, but Cowdery said he was excommunicated for calling Joseph Smith an adulterer...for having sex with his nanny Fanny Alger). Cowdery writes in A Defense that the Angel John the Baptist (who ordained Joseph Smith and Olivery Cowdery to the Aaronic Priesthood) "sounded just like Mr. Rigdon". He wrote:

"And what served to render the reflection past expression in its bitterness to me, was, that from his hand I received baptism, by the direction of the Angel of God, whose voice, as it has since struck me, did most mysteriously resemble the voice of Elder Sidney Rigdon, 1 who, I am sure, had no part in the transactions of that day, as the Angel was John the Baptist, which I doubt not and deny not. When I afterward first heard Elder Rigdon, whose voice is so strikingly similar, I felt that this "dear" brother was to be in some sense, to me unknown, the herald of this church as the Great Baptist was of Christ." (A Defense, p.??)
Some have questioned the authenticy of A Defense, but I believe it is authentic.

I believe that Sidney Rigdon, who was not about Pious Fraud (who wanted to become a Baptist pastor so fabricated a "born again" tongue speaking experience to accomplish this goal), was friends to a printer at the Patterson & Lambsin Printing Office in Pittsburg. He came across a work by Solomon Spaulding, a Dartmouth College gradulate, titled (according to Spaulding's daughter in her affidavit) Manuscript Found in the Wilds of Mormon. He stole it, and reworked the story to include religious sermons and other materials that would "solve" all the controversies among Christians in the New World at that time.

Sometime in 1825 or 1826, Ethan Smith, author of Views of the Hebrews, on tour with his book, meets Sidney Rigdon. The two conspire to publish the book. There is no plan to start a new Church. Rather, they hoped that the Book, once published, would convince all Christians to UNITE under the banner of "The Christian Church" or perhaps "The Church of Christ". All Christian sects would be in one fold, with one Shephard (Jesus).

Ethan Smith insists that the book be expanded, to include anti-Masonic portions. Rigdon agrees, and The Book of Ether is added as a Anti-Masonic tract (the Jaredites destroy themselves become of "Secret Combinations"). Ethan Smith knows a young man, Oliver Cowdery, who is acted as scribe for William Morgan, who is writing a book exposing Freemasonry. Smith and Rigdon decide to contact Cowdery to see if he would be interested in this project. Cowdery is enthusiatic, anything to convince Americans and Freemasonry is evil and will lead America to self-destruction. He's on board. He then tells them about his cousin, Joseph Smith Sr., who is a "visionary man" who has many visions. At first, the men think about including Joseph Smith Sr. in the project. But, Joseph Smith Sr.'s reputation as a money-digger makes him a bad candidate. Maybe his son Alvin would do. His son Alvin dies after eating too many unripe turnups.

In September 1826, Ethan Smith is in Palmyra, purportedly to promote Views of the Hebrews. He is there at the Smith farm, with Sidney Rigdon (who later claims to know nothing of Joseph Smith until 1830), Oliver Cowdery, and other men, according to neighbor and Joseph Smith's boyhood friend, Lorenzo Saunders.

Joseph Smith Jr. is a better candidate to be the "front man" for this project. Sure, he accompanied his father on some money-diggings, and occassionally used a "seerstone" to find lost objects and buried treasure, but, as his father, he has claimed to be a "Seer". He'll do just fine.

But, Rigdon and Ethan Smith discover that even BEFORE the book is published, the Christian world reacts negatively! They soon see that the book will NOT "unite" Christian America. A new sect must be formed around the book.

Of course, all this is SPECULATION. But, what is NOT speculation is the following:

*The Book of Mormon is NOT ancient American history. The plants and animals mentioned in the book did NOT exist in America before the Spanish colonists. The American Indians have NO Semitic ancestry whatsoever. Period.

*Joseph Smith had many FAILED prophecies. The Bible does not allow for ONE failed prophecy, much less many. Explain-aways (i.e. "these prophecies were conditional and the conditions were not met") are used by the apologists of all false prophets to explain away ALL failed prophecies by these false prophets. All false prophecies can be explained-away as "true but conditional, and the conditions were never met".

*What the Mormon Church teaches today CONTRADICTS the Book of Mormon, which teaches there is only ONE God, that Hell is eternal, the salvation is by GRACE, and that we ONLY become sons and daughters of God by being born-again, and that the dark-skin of Lamanites is a "cursing" upon their skins. The Mormon Church now denies ALL this.

*What the Mormon Church teaches today CONTRADICTS Brigham Young, who taught that Adam was God the Father of our spirits, that Negroes are cursed and inferior, that the Sun and Moon are inhabited, that murderers and thieves must be killed to atone for their sins, that interracial couples and their children must be KILLED because they were abominations before God, and that HE HIMSELF WAS NOT A PROPHET. The Mormon Church teaches the opposite today.

*The Book of Mormon teaches that "swearing by the throat" and "secret combinations" and secret rites are of the Devil, but, until 1990, Mormons had to swear "by their throat" in secret rites in Mormon Temples. In 1990 the "swearing by the throat" was removed on order of Church leaders, without comment.

*Joseph Smith was a polygamist for at least 12 years while he claimed HE WAS NEVER A POLYGAMIST! He "married" (but did not live with nor provide for) a total of 33 women, including his own foster-daughters, the Lawrence sisters, aged 14 and 16. According to Emma Smith, she was the only wife she knew about (which means she is either lying or Joseph Smith never told her about his additional "wives). Some of Joseph Smith's "wives" were married and living with husbands at the time. Sarah Pratt, wife of Orson Pratt, then on a mission to England, claimed that Joseph Smith tried to seduce her. Nancy Rigdon, daughter of Sidney Rigdon, later made the same claim. Oliver Cowdery claimed that Joseph Smith had an affair with Fanny Alger, a "comely" 16year old nanny who lived in the Smith home in Kirtland and took care of the Smith children.

*Brigham Young owned a Beer hall, distilleries that made wine and hard liquor, and tobacco farms in southern Utah. His business sold wine, whiskey, and tobacco to Gentiles in Utah and Nevada. But at the same time he preached that no "Saint" could partake of these activities and be members of the Church! According to Bill Hickman, his former body-guard, Brigham Young ordered the murder of a number of people, including some apostates (the Morrisites), and those who undersold him. Confidants of Brigham Young, who later left the Church, claimed that Brigham Young stole hundreds of thousands of dollars (the equivolent of millions today) from the Tithing Office every single year! At his death, Brigham Young was one of the wealthiest men in America at that time. Where did he get this wealth? Did Church President pay that well?

*Mormons love to point-out that the Church has "no paid ministry". Yet, the leaders of the Church are paid quite well, although the exact amount is "secret". Also, top Mormon leaders (i.e. the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve) also "sit" on the Boards of Church owned corporations, and receive HUGE fees for this, although they attend few meetings. These corporations are supported by tithing money. Members are asked to give Tithing, then Fast Offerings, then Building Funds, and all sorts of other "funds", pay for their own missions, etc. While, at the same time, Church leader make excellent salaries, get huge amounts yearly from sitting on "Boards" (usually doing nothing but listening and voting with the majority). Why haven't you read this before? Why do you think that the Church's financial records are SECRET? The secret is from YOU? They don't want YOU to know how wealthy Church leaders have become from YOUR tithing! In 1832, in Kirkland, Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon ask the Church for a salary of $1000 a year each (a HUGE sum at that time TWICE that of a well-salaried preacher). In Nauvoo, Joseph Smith gave himself most of the land from funds from tithing, sold the land out piece by piece to Members (the very ones who gave him the money in the first place) and built a red brick store, a "mansion" and the "Nauvoo House" which was suppored to remain in his immediately family for all generations.

*Gordon B. Hinckley is NOT a "Living Prophet". He does not prophesy. He does not see visions. He does not receive Revelation. He was FOOLED for five years by Mark Hofmann, the atheist/former/bomber who sold documents to Hinckley face to face, which Hinckley then tried to hide. WHERE WAS THE DISCERNMENT? Answer: Nowhere!


Mark Hofmann (forger/bomber) sold forged documents directly to Gordon B. Hinckley (acting President of the Church at that time) for over 5 years.

I know for a FACT that Hinckley has LIED or equivocated on many occassions. In 1997, on Australian Television show called COMPASS, Hinckley was asked "the reason why" blacks were banned from the priesthood and temples before 1978. Hinckley looked into the eyes of the interviewer and said, "I don't know what the reason for that was!"

That's a LIE!

In 1992, a video came out titled "The Truth About Mormon Church President Gordon B. Hinckley" which has various people on it claiming that Hinckley was involved in a bi-sexual affair with a man in the late 1960s. Back then, I scoffed at this video, passing it off as Anti-Mormon lies. But, today...I'm NOT SO SURE! If Hinckley lies once, why not twice, if twice, why not many times?

I've seen so much lying, so much hypocrisy, so much scandal, so much COVER-UP in the Mormon Church, I'm willing now to believe just about anything!

I DO NOT KNOW if what the people are saying the video is true. But I DO KNOW that Hinckley has LIED about other things on many different occassions. I know THAT for a FACT.

I've realized over the decades that I've been in a state of "denial". I did not want to let go of Joseph Smith. That is why I became a Baha'i, because Baha'u'llah appeared in the Holy Land in 1891, the very year Joseph Smith prophesied that Christ would return. And Baha'u'llah claimed to be Christ returned (i.e. the Spirit of Jesus returned "in" him).

Even though I KNOW The Book of Mormon is NOT "historical" and that many verses from it are copied from the King James Bible, or from the Book of Madoc, or from the Apocrypha, or from early American colonial history, or from the early history of the German Dunkers of America, or from the Zionitic Brotherhood, or from Solomon Spaulding's "Manuscript Found in the Wilds of Mormon", I still have respect for the book. NOT because of the Mormon Church (which teaches many things CONTRARY to the book), but for what it does teach about Jesus Christ, and about human nature. The prideful, arrogant, holier-than-thou, hypocritical money-loving self-righteous white-skinned Nephites remind me so strikingly well of the Mormons I knew! Uncannilly well! Everything the prophets in The Book of Mormon preached against, everything they condemned the Nephites for, the Mormons were DOING and believing TODAY! How can this book be PURE FRAUD? It so strikingly FORETELLS the destiny of white-skinned people of the Americas!

Whoever wrote The Book of Mormon (and it was not Joseph Smith) "saw" something. Was inspired by "something". He had some sort of prophetic insight into the future of America, where the white race would, because of pride, arrogance, love of wealth, be utterly destroyed by the dark-skinned masses. He wanted to warn us.

In a few decades America will be a third-world country, because of the GREED of white business owners, and white politicians, who led in the third-world so they can work them harder, and pay them less, than they would white Americans. Because of this GREED, White America will be utterly annihilated. Not now, but a hundred of so years into the future. That is what The Book of Mormon was warning us. And not even the Mormons can see it.

I Become A Daheshist

Between 1981 and 1983 I prepared to go on a mission for the LDS Church. I became very spiritual. I ceased using pornography in any form. I ceased thinking of sexual things at night. I prayed often. I fasted. I read the Bible constantly, even at work I began to pray and meditate often. One night, in hours of deep meditation, I either fell asleep, or I had an out-of-body experience. During this "dream" it seemed as if my spirit left my body. I could fly! I traveled up through the sky and into space. I headed for the Moon. Suddenly something dragged me away. I was headed for the Sun, quite swiftly. The closer I got the more terrified I became. I could feel no heat, but the Sun became so large is took all my vision, and it looked angry, with huge firery arms shooting out. I screamed, but nothing came out.

I fell into the Sun. Inside, I saw what seemed to be a blue sky, only blue all around. I saw another Sun, smaller, very white and non-threatending. Then I saw other suns in the distance, also white and non-threatening. The Suns seemed to be revolving around some "point" of light. I approached that light, and the closer I got, I received an overwhelming feeling of LOVE and PEACE. Very enjoyable. I entered the light, and standing in front of me was a figure, standing. The figure was just like you would read in the Bible. White hair (short and parted on the side like any American business haircut...which surprised me), feet of brass, wearing a shining white robe. His eyes were like fire. He openned his mouth and I heard what sounded like a corus of 100,000 men. I WOKE UP!

I was drenched in my own sweat. I concluded I had had a wonderful dream, and let it at that. Soon afterwards I went to the Temple for the first time. The Seattle Temple. After that experience I LOST FAITH. I said to myself, "This is NOT of God!" But then I said, "But wait, maybe I'm not spiritual enough to understand this!"

The night after my first Temple Endowment experience I went back to my apartment, and inside the apartment I began to hear voices, in a language I never heard before, all around me. And I heard what sounded by a ship's fog-horn. But, all these voices were in the room I was in, near me. Male and female voices. I prayed for these voices to go away, but to no avail. Finally, I hid under the covers and eventually went to sleep.

Years later, I heard some women speak Arabic on a TV program, and I remember thinking, "THAT is what I heard in my room!"

In any case, since my "dream" I have had a few incidents wherein I heard "voices". Most people who hear voices are considered "crazy" so I thought I was going nuts. The voices would speak in a language I could not understand, more of a mumble. One time I heard a voice behind me, at a library south of Seattle, which said something like:

"Haaah. Ummmshorsh...ummm pwaaaaasht....ummmm haaaa...shyook. UMMMMHAAA SHYOOK! AWSHAA" But, my "thought" in the head would come out, "Christ is here, he is here. He is in New York City". I thought....THIS IS LOCO. THIS IS INSANE! I heard vocally mumbling, but my brain translates it. Weird!

I remember thinking, "I'm goin INSANE. I've going skitso!" I remember I shouldn't tell anyone about it because they'd conclude I was going insane.

I remember thinking, "Christ is in New York City! HOW INSANE!" I would shake my own head at these thoughts, but they were persistent. This was in June, 1983.

I decided to drown out these thoughts, and the voice eventually went away. I went on my mission. The Temple Endowment experienced had shooken me up pretty well. It confused me greatly. It caused me to doubt the Church like never before. But, I said to myself that I obviously was not spiritual enough to understand it, and that, given time and effort, I would become spiritual enough to enjoy the experience and to understand it.

I served my mission. At times I had highs, but mostly there were only lows. Most of my companions were very selfish young men who had lived immoral lives before going on missions. This was during the time Spencer W. Kimball was President of the Church. His philosophy was to send EVERYBODY on a mission, even immoral young men, and the mission experience would straighten them out. Of course, this was not the case. "Junk in=Junk out" is the saying. Send an immoral young man on a Mission and he's going to be an immortal young missionary. The Church has stopped doing this in recent years, I've read.

We had very few converts. The people on my mission (except for the illegal aliens) were all "fat and happy". They were anything but humble and teachable! Only the Spanish speaking missionaries had success. English-speaking missionaries usually taught and baptised the rich husbands and boyfriends of Mormon women. And most of these husbands and boyfriends were never converted. They just joined the Church to make their Mormon wives and girlfriends happy.

I did have one true convert. A young woman who, later, told me that she was thinking of committing suicide before she met us. She was baptized, and seemed like a true convert. However, one of my companions (not my companion at the time) later had sex with her, and he was excommunicated and sent home (while he was my companion), and she was disfellowshipped. Not sure if she came back to the Church. Alot of missionaries were getting into trouble with young single female investigators at that time. I also helped convert a black family to the Church, but the people in the Ward cold-shouldered them, and they eventually went permanently inactive.

Later, I came home, soon went inactive. You know the rest.

But, in 2005, while waiting to use the computer at a public library in Tacoma, Washington, I was reading the Enclyclopedia of American Religions. It was a huge book, a "list" of all the religions in the United States, great and small. In the book was something about "Dahesh Heritage". I read more. The book said about "Daheshism"; a religion founded in 1942. It was about one "Doctor Dahesh", a Lebanese Prophet who performed thousands of supernatural miracles, and claimed to be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. Dr. Dahesh was born in Jerusalem in 1090, and died, in New York City, in 1984.

I could NOT BELIEVE MY EYES!!!

This "Doctor Dahesh", who claimed to be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ, lived in New York City from 1975 to his death in 1984! In 1983, when the voice told me that Christ was in New York City, Dahesh, was living in New York City.

I jumped out of my chair, with eyes wide open, to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I wasn't. They soon called my name, and I got on the Internet (free for patrons one hour per day). I typed in "Dahesh" and got some information. "Dahesh Heritage" was a bookstore in New York City that sold books in Arabic, including books by Dr. Dahesh. I contacted them, and they wrote back.

Eventually, I discovered all I could about this "Doctor Dahesh".

Doctor Dahesh was born as Saleem Moosa El-Ashee (Peaceful Moses Elisha) in Jerusalem, in 1909. He was known as a worker of miracles. He walked on water. He raised the dead, healed the sick, cause the blind to see, the deaf the hear. He turned water into wine. He walked on water. Many hundreds witnessed these things. Many dozens of journalists went to him asking for miracles, and he performed them, right in front of them, and they wrote about these miracles in their Arabic-language newspapers.

Dr. Dahesh spent most of his life in Beirut, Lebanon. His prophecies were in the hundreds, and fulfilled in an exactness and detail that cannot be explained away.

I discovered that Dr. Dahesh had an Emissary named "Dr. Ghazi Brax"; a Lebanese professor of literature and psychology. I contacted Dr. Brax, and he sent me letters, epistles. Dr. Dahesh told Dr. Brax that he was the reincarnation of the Apostle Paul, and chosen to disseminate Daheshism throughout the world.

At one time there were over 40,000 Daheshists in Lebanon, but the Lebanese government declared Daheshism to be "heretical" and "illegal" and persecuted the Daheshists. Today, the number of Daheshists in Lebanon is unknown. The number in the United States is perhaps 100 to 200.

I did not want to jump into another organized religion. I had bad experiences with the Mormons and with the Baha'is, for different reasons. I then discovered that Doctor Dahesh taught that organized religion is not necessary for salvation. He taught that we are all judged by the Laws of Karma. We are judged by our DEEDS in life, nothing else. The Atheist who leads a better life than a Christian will receive a better next life than the Christian!

I discovered that Dahesh did envision a "Brotherhood" or "United Order" of Daheshists, but that Order was not yet organized, and would not be for awhile yet. The reasons for that were known only to a few and it was felt those reasons would not yet be explained, but it was hinted that something would happen in 2009.

Most Mormons will of course, REJECT this, thinking:

*This CANNOT be true, since Church leaders say reincanation is false. COMMENT: Church leaders also once said that men would NEVER land on the Moon. Why are you believing Church leaders? How many miracles have THEY performed?

Mormons will think:

*This CANNOT be true, since Church leaders are Prophets/Seers/Revelations. If Christ returned, THEY WOULD HAVE TOLD US!

COMMENT: Church leaders told Mormons for 130 years that Negroes are the "cursed" children of Cain? Do you believe THAT? Why do you believe them NOW? They taught for many years that the Lost Ten Tribes were hidden at the North Pole. Do you believe THAT? Then WHY do you believe them NOW?

Daheshists believe that the WORD of God will incarnate 24 times during this age, the Age of Pisces. This is the meaning of the "four and twenty elders" around the Throne of God in the Book of Revelations chapter five.

Jesus was the first incarnation, of the WORD incarnate for the first century. He returned, one time per century, until the 20th century: born a poor Palestinian boy in Jersualem, in 1909.

Christ appeared as JESUS in the first century, as MONTANUS in the 2nd, as MANI in the third....until we come to DAHESH in the 20th. And He will come again, in the 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and finally the 24th century. In the 24th century He will be born of a virgin, again, with the name of "JESUS". That is why Jesus says in the Book of Revelations:

"I am the Alpha and the Omega: the first and the last"
Greek has 24 letters. The 24 letters represent the 24 Elders, who are the 24 incarnations of Christ during the Age of Pisces (1 B.C. to 2500 A.D.). Alpha is the first letter. Omega is the last letter. By saying "I am the Alpha and the Omega" Jesus was saying, "I am the first to the last of the 24 letters".

In 2005 I became a Daheshist; a follower of Dr. Dahesh, the miracle-working Prophet of Lebanon. I'd finally found a true Prophet, whose prophecies come true, who "PROVED" His religion was true by his hundreds of supernatural miracles, witnessed by thousands, MOST of whom were never Daheshists.

I had to give up falsehood for truth. Mormoism was a FALSEHOOD. The Book of Mormon was NOT ancient history. It's already been PROVED to be FALSE. Mormons simply refuse to look at the evidence. Or, those few who DO look at the evidence, REFUSE to accept the facts. It's as simple as that.

I could NOT become a Catholic nor an Evangelical Christian. I don't believe in those religions. Had I become an Evangelical, I probably could make a good living being a professional Anti-Mormon, speaking at Evangelical churches across the country, writing and seeling booked titled "The Mormon Delusion" or "Mormonism: Case Closed".

But....

I do NOT believe that Evangelical Christianity is the true form of Christianity. I believe that Doctor Dahesh is Jesus Christ reincarnated. I believe He is Jesus RETURNED. I believe in HIS form of Christianity. HE IS THE "AUTHOR" OF CHRISTIANITY.

I do NOT believe as Evangelicals believe, that Jesus will return in a cloudy sky (rainy day?) spitting out fireballs upon the wicked, and scooping up Evangelicals in the "Rapture" to fly up into the sky, donning white robes, merely to play harps and sing songs of praise for all eternity, looking down occassionally to see the Damned burn in Hell forever, screaming and crying for mercy but receiving none! To me...that's NOT heaven...that's HELL! To see other suffer for eternity, to me, is HELL.

I believe what Doctor Dahesh taught. And He taught this:

*Organized religion is not necessary for salvation. We are all judged the same by the Laws of Karma. WE are judged by our words/deeds/thoughts. The Atheist, if his life is more good than a Christian, will inherit a better incarnation in the next life.

*Heaven refers to the Paradise planets, where all the joys of life exist, with none of the sorrows. Hell refer to the Hell-planets, of which Earth is the highest type. We are IN Hell now. The Suns that light the Hell-planets burn our skins, and cause us to age, suffer, and die. This is the meaning of Hell-fire in the Bible and Qu'ran. There are lower Hell-planets than Earth.

*There is no secret magical formula to get us to the Paradise Planets. There is no mere "mouth confession" to save us from returning to Earth or going to a lower Hell-world. Our own actions in life condemn us or save us.

*Life on the Paradise planets are very similar to Earth life, but on those planets we remain youthful. There is no "death" as we know it. We simply go to sleep. On those planets we can create things from mere thought, including former loved ones, pets, and memories.

*Life on the Paradise planets is depicted in the Buddhist scriptures concerning the Brahma worlds and the Deva worlds. Consult those books if you want to do what the Paradise planets are like.

*Life on the lower Hell-worlds are depicted in the Buddhist scriptures regarding the Asura worlds and the Acici-Hell worlds. Consult those books if you want to know what the lower Hell worlds are like.

*Jesus was Adam in a previous incarnation. He came to suffer for the sins of mankind because He was the originator of original sin.

*Jesus' blood on the cross saves us from the Curse of the Law of Moses. It does not wipe out our sins before we are baptized, or after we are baptised, or before our after any mouth-confession. We shall pay for our own sins, as Jesus paid for His (from previous incarnations) on the Cross.

*There is One God only, Who consists as the Totality of Spirits. All spirits are a portion of God, and God consists as the totality of souls.

*Every human being consists of 6,000 souls ("legion"). Each one of these "souls" has one incarnation on Earth before we shall go on to the next planet in this system, and this process will repeat itself until we all reach Nirvana; which is eternal Oneness and Bliss.

Your meeting attending/tithe-paying/Temple-Sealings have NO BEARING WHATSOEVER on your Afterlife! They earn you no "points" no "treasures in heaven". Only your true acts of kindness and charity to your fellow man earn you "treasures in heaven". Your giving to the poor and needy earns you treasures. But you tithe paying, which goes to support the building of buildings and to Church-owned businesses (from which Church leaders make a LOT of money...on top of their very nice salaries), earns you NOTHING in heaven. The "blessings" you attribute to God for being in the "true Church" (i.e. women, business success, professional success) is an ILLUSION....Polygamist, Seventh-day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, many Evangelical Christians, use the same "evidences" as PROOF "THEY" have "THE TRUTH"! Hindus believe they are similarly "blessed" by elephant,monkey, and rat "gods" at the temples of these "gods". Its SUPERSTITION!!! If you believe that the Book of Mormon is "historical" you are under DELUSION. It's not. If you believe that you're going to have many wives in the AFterlife and create your own planets you are under DELUTION. You're not. If you believe that having a beautiful wife, healthy children, a successful career or business are "signs" that God has blessed you and you have THE TRUTH then you are under DELUSION. Polygamists, murderers, liars, atheists, can marry beautiful women, have healthy children, and successful careers and businesses! Maybe it is time to OPEN YOUR EYES and see the LIGHT OF DAY! I testify to YOU that God does exist, Jesus is the Christ, and HE HAS RETURNED with a New Name. And that name is DAHESH. A TRUE Prophet has come. He proved He was from God by His many miracles.. His name is DAHESH: http://www.angelfire.com/mo3/dahesh/ < In the Book of Mormon, we have Alma and Alma the Younger, whose exploits are very similar to those of ALexander MAck and ALexander MAck "The Younger"; the founder and son of the German Dunkers (Church of the Brethren). The son of ALMA the Younger in the Book of Mormon was "Corianton". The son of Alexander Mack called "The Younger" (a term used before "Junior" became popular) was Cory Anton Mack. There are many similarities in The Book of Mormon to battles between English settlers and Indians (allied to the French) in the French- Indian war of the 1750s. The first verse of The Book of Mormon has a strong parallel with a 16th century book by John Dee called "The Book of Madoc": a fictional account of a Welsh prince who sails to America in the 12th century A.D. In the Book of Mormon, Nephi writes: "I Nephi, being born of goodly parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father; and having seen many afflictions in the course of my days, nevertheless, having been highly favored of the Lord in all my days; yea, having had a great knowledge of the goodness and the mysteries of God, therefore I make a record of the proceeding of my days". (1 Nephi 1:1) In the Book of Madoc, by John Dee (written in the 1500s): "I, Madoc, born of goodly parents, was taught somewhat in the learning of my father, nevertheless having seen many afflictions, therefore I make a record in my day as a vagabond upon the face of the earth." (Madoc 3:1) Madoc was a Welsh prince who purportedly sailed to America in the 12th century. They had wars with the Indians. The son of Madoc was Mor Awnyry (pronounced "More-On-ih-rih"). In The Book of Mormon one finds the "Testimony of the Eleven Witnesses" and the "Testimony of the Three Witnesses". One of the Three was David Whitmer. Of the Evelven Witnesses, eight were sons (and one son-in-law) of Peter Whitmer Sr. The Book of Mormon was "translated" at a Whitmer Farm in Harmony, Pennsylvania. The Church of Christ (later changed to "Church of the Latter-day Saints" and later changed to "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints"), was organized in Fayette New York, on a Whitmer Farm. Before becoming Mormons, the Whitmers were members of the "Dunkers" otherwise known as the "Tunkers" or "German Brethren" or "The Church of the Brethren". Part of the Church of the Brethren included the Zionitic Brotherhood, an Order of German Protestant monks who claimed to have the "Order of Melchizedek" priesthood dating back to early Christian times. The Zionitic Brotherhood was headquartered in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, and was established there in 1659 A.D. They had a wooden "Temple" were sacred secret rites were performed, and baptisms for the dead. Peter Whitmer, the father of David Whitmer, Peter Whitmer Jr., John Whitmer, Jacob Whitmer, had been one time a member of the Order of Melchizedek, before he left the Order as a young man and married. The Zionitic Brotherhood included male and female monks, who wore all white. Their temple rituals included prayer circles, and white veils one had to pass through. Archaeology is squarely AGAINST The Book of Mormon being historical. For example: *The Book of Mormon mentions sheep, oxen, and asses. None of these animals ever existed in the Americas before the Spanish. If the Nephites existed, then they would have had, over a span of 1000 yeas, MILLIONS of sheep, asses (donkies), and oxen. Yet, not one bone has been found of these animals in the New World, before the time of Columbus and the Spanish settlers. *Ancient America had small horses 10,000 years ago, and Mastadons and wolly mammoths about 13,000 years ago. America had mountain goats too, but not the domesticated "Asian" goat. *Some Mormon apologists have suggested that the Nephites plowed their fields with Bison, and had llamas and alpacas for sheep, and used deer to ride and pull their chariots! ;) But Bison lived in North America north of the Rio Grande, and llamas and alpacas existed in the Andes mountains in South America. The two were never within 4,000 miles of each other. Also, deer cannot be ridden. *The BOM claims that the "Lamanites" are really Hebrews. Yet, the American Indians are Asians, closely related to the Tuvan people of Siberian. American Indians are body-hairless, slanted eyed, and have a "Mongolian Dot" on their tailbone, just like other Asians (Chinese, Japanese, etc.). Their culture, language, DNA, is Asian, not Semitic as one would think if they were descendants of Hebrews (a white-skinned hairy-bodied race of Caucasians). Mormon apologists "deal" with the fact that American Indians are Asians, and have NOT ONE SEMITIC GENE in their DNA by saying that "God changed their DNA". As punishment, God changed them from white-skinned hairy Semites into dark-skinned Asians ("poof"). This is why they DNA, language, culture, religion, etc., has NO relationship whatever to the Hebrews. Will true believing Mormons accept these FACTS? No. Why? Most Mormons think like this: This CAN'T be true since... 1) If the Book of Mormon is false then... 2) Mormonism is false then.. 3) Christianity is false then.. 4) There is no God then... 5) Life has no purpose so.. 6) This CANNOT be true! 7) The author (me) must be a LIAR!!! When ignorant people don't wish to accept the truth...they don't! They attack the Messenger. This is NOT logical. It is ANTI-logic. The following is logical: 1) If the Book of Mormon is NOT true history then... 2) Joseph Smith was NOT a true prophet then... 3) Gordon B. Hinckley is NOT a true prophet then... 4) My temple-going and meeting attending and tithe-paying earns me NO heavenly rewards in the Afterlife and.... 5) My temple sealings will mean NOTHING in the Afterlife so... 6) The Church therefore CANNOT "bless" me in this life nor the Afterlife But... 7) This does NOT mean that God does not exist, NOR does that mean that truth is not upon the Earth! This means ONLY that "The Church" is not what I was told it was and NOT what I have believed it was. THAT is logic, something the True Believing Mormon CANNOT grasp! They CANNOT grasp the logic of this, but will rely on total IGNORANCE and an illogical thought pattern. They will ATTACK THE MESSENGER who tells them Truth. They will call the TRUTH a LIE, and the LIE the TRUTH, because it suits their desires. But TRUTH is NOT determined by our "wants/desires/fancies". Truth is reality, and independent of our wants. But the Mormon will say, "But I KNOW the Church is TRUE, because I have been BLESSED by God!" Most Mormons believe that God has "blessed" them already. For example, if a male Mormon procures a sexy female for marriage, this is "proof" to him that God has "blessed" him therefore the Church is True! Polygamists believe the same thing when they procure multiple attractive women....God is obviously "blessing" them so "I must BE IN THE TRUTH!" Mormons equal the CHURCH with TRUTH. They mean the same thing exactly. "I have the TRUTH" means "I HAVE THE CHURCH". Seventh-day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and others believe the exact same thing about their organizations. The Book of Mormon is NOT historical!!! The American Indians have NO Semitic blood in them. Not one "gene". The animals mentioned in the Book of Mormon (oxen, asses, sheep) did NOT exist in the Americas before the Spanish brought them. The Book of Mormon was written by a highly educated Christian man, who understood the Bible and bibilical Hebrew, as a "jeremiad"; a parable about the whites and Indians of America. The author feared that the Indians would overrun the white settlers (this happened in many areas during the French-Indian wars in the 1750s) and annihilate them. The author feared that Freemasonry ("secret combination") would destroy the Republic. He named the book in honor of the two Anti-Masonic "martyrs": William MORgan and Timothy MONroe. We know that Ethan Smith was in Palmyra, for some unknown reason, in the very month and year that the Angel Moroni gave the gold plates to Joseph Smith. Another...."mere" coincidence? Gordon B. Hinckley is NOT a "Living Prophet". He does not prophesy. He does not see visions. He does not receive Revelation. He was FOOLED for five years by Mark Hofmann, the atheist/former/bomber who sold documents to Hinckley face to face, which Hinckley then tried to hide. WHERE WAS THE DISCERNMENT? Answer: Nowhere! Your meeting attending/tithe-paying/Temple-Sealings have NO BEARING WHATSOEVER on your Afterlife! They earn you no "points" no "treasures in heaven". Only your true acts of kindness and charity to your fellow man earn you "treasures in heaven". Your giving to the poor and needy earns you treasures. But you tithe paying, which goes to support the building of buildings and to Church-owned businesses (from which Church leaders make a LOT of money...on top of their very nice salaries), earns you NOTHING in heaven. The "blessings" you attribute to God for being in the "true Church" (i.e. women, business success, professional success) is an ILLUSION....Polygamist, Seventh-day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, many Evangelical Christians, use the same "evidences" as PROOF "THEY" have "THE TRUTH"! Hindus believe they are similarly "blessed" by elephant,monkey, and rat "gods" at the temples of these "gods". Its SUPERSTITION!!! If you believe that the Book of Mormon is "historical" you are under DELUSION. It's not. If you believe that you're going to have many wives in the AFterlife and create your own planets you are under DELUTION. You're not. If you believe that having a beautiful wife, healthy children, a successful career or business are "signs" that God has blessed you and you have THE TRUTH then you are under DELUSION. Polygamists, murderers, liars, atheists, can marry beautiful women, have healthy children, and successful careers and businesses! Maybe it is time to OPEN YOUR EYES and see the LIGHT OF DAY! I testify to YOU that God does exist, Jesus is the Christ, and HE HAS RETURNED with a New Name. And that name is DAHESH. A TRUE Prophet has come. He proved He was from God by His many miracles.. His name is DAHESH: http://www.angelfire.com/mo3/dahesh/
