“Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision.” (Joel 3:14) This scripture prophesies a part of World War III, as the world attacks Israel, but today America is at its own “valley of decision” crossroads. In large measure, Americans have rejected the God of this land, who is Jesus Christ, and facing the serious consequences that they will not have His protection and guiding hand. Indeed, America’s future is at the crossroads. We have enemies that would destroy us, and we critically need the hand of Providence. We had it during the Revolutionary War – a war we should not have won. The reason we won is summarized by George Washington, “Divine intervention!” We need major “Divine intervention” today through massive repentance of Americans, or else! My goal in this article is to share insights that we might receive this critically needed “Divine Intervention” and help us prepare for what is coming. I will share my perceptions of why so many Americans have turned from God and what we can do to get them back to Him.
In spite of all the challenges the future holds, I believe we live in the most exciting time in the history of the earth. And I know that if we will seek His divine guidance in righteousness, it is always there for us. Glenn Beck does a great job of showing that the enemies within are much more dangerous than those without in their treasonous and atheistic ways. America’s future crossroads is a battle between Christ and Satan. You know who will win; let’s be informed and on the right side regardless of the choices others may make, and let’s do what we can to wake up others as well. It is the cause of liberty, which is the cause of Christ.
Let us examine why many Americans have turned from God
There are the obvious reasons and then the not so obvious. Satan knows it is his “last hour,” and he is doing everything he can to take us away from a Christ-centered life. It is obvious that the secular and materialistic encroachment has contributed greatly to the moral decline in America and in the world. The Biblical ethic upon which this nation was based has been replaced by “do your own thing.” Sadly, the Bible is not believed by more than 90% of the leading American scientists.
There is the attitude that science and technology have the answers to life’s problems. During the last century, both scientists and historians have adopted the false postulate that to do good science and good histories, things spiritual and God should be excluded. In other words, God doesn’t have the answers to life’s challenges. And moral decay has corrupted our nation, as Americans have turned from Him.
Let us examine some of the not so obvious reasons for why so many American’s have turned from God
Before we look at these reasons, let us reason together:
- First, the only way we can know something is true is if God tells us because He cannot lie and He is all-knowing. The Holy Ghost bears witness of those truths God shares. We know where there is “no vision, the people perish.” (Proverbs 29:18)
- Second, the theories of men cannot be proven true. Unbeknownst to most, many theories the vast majority believe to be true are actually false, and the moral decay consequences have been enormous, as I will share!
- Third, there is a significant false tendency in most of us that if something agrees with an idea, theory, postulate, or hypothesis that we believe in, then we tend to think that is validation. Data correlation or consistency does not provide validation, even if the data are valid. It may give us confidence in the idea, theory, postulate, or hypothesis, but it does not provide proof. For example, if someone says they love you, that may make you feel good, but if their heart is not in it, that is an empty truth. This tendency causes many to follow false beliefs, which can have enormous consequences as well, as we will see, and explains to some degree why Americans are in this serious “valley of decision,” and facing potential destruction and loss of liberty.
- And Fourth, we have a very powerful tool that is not well known or appreciated that we can prove an idea, theory, hypothesis, or philosophy false if we have reliable falsification data. This is an extremely important and useful tool in our search for truth. Knowing something is not true avoids being deceived by that something and lets us better internalize the Lord’s truths in our lives.
SOME SERIOUS EXAMPLES OF FALSE THEORIES WITH ENORMOUS CONSEQUENCES:
In Chapter 6 of my book, It’s About Time, I share data that Darwin’s theory of evolution is false, yet it is taught in most universities and permeates our textbooks. I have several reliable data sources and I use some of the brightest minds on the planet to help in providing this proof. The false theory of organic evolution has led countless millions into atheism and away from the God of Creation and doubting the Bible story of Adam and Eve as our first parents. If there is no fall of Adam and Eve, then there is no need for an atonement to overcome the effects of the fall, and thus we see that organic evolution is anti-Christ.
I have seen recent data proving the “Big Bang” theory false; I call it the “Big Bank” theory! P. M. Robitaille Ph.D. has thus proven. I know the scientist personally, a devout Christian. This false theory has led cosmologists and hence much of the world down an empty path of ‘ex nihilo’ – the universe was created out of nothing – causing many to not believe in the God of creation and promoting atheism – especially among scientists. If we told our scientist friends, who have lost faith in God, about this proof, maybe we could help them come back.
Today we have before us two very important theories for Book of Mormon Geography:
— The Heartland Model
— The Mesoamerica Model
In the following link using item four above, I share data proving the Mesoamerica Model false. In addition, I share the Lord’s statements through His prophets that validate the Heartland Model. America is the “Promised Land” spoken of in the Book of Mormon and it is critical that Americans repent now, or the inhabitants, who have rejected the truths of God will be “Swept Off,” (Ether 2:10-12)
Two False Doctrines that have Crept into Christianity
There are other false doctrines that have crept into Christianity, but these two false doctrines significantly dilute the beauty of the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. They have crept into Christianity over the centuries due to misunderstandings of the scriptures: they believe that the feelings of love between a husband and wife cannot transcend the grave – “until death do you part” is the typical belief. And secondly, they believe that one must hear and accept the gospel in this life in order to be saved. These false doctrines contribute to people rejecting traditional Christianity, as they don’t harmonize with the feelings of the heart and the Spirit of Christ.
Our second and third presidents, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, were both devote followers of the teachings of Christ. They saw these serious errors in Christianity. Thanks to the restoration through the Prophet Joseph Smith, these false doctrines were replaced with the glorious truths of the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Both Adams and Jefferson anticipated this restoration in God’s mercy.
Miraculously, Adams and Jefferson died on the same day be divine design on the Fourth of July exactly fifty years after they had given us that sacred document – the Declaration of Independence – and helping to provide the momentum for giving this nation it’s liberty. Adams’ son, John Quincy Adams (our sixth president), said of this miracle that it was “proof” “that this country, and its benefactors, are objects of his [Divine] care.” Daniel Webster echoed those same sentiments. (p 226 The Pilgrim Hypothesis by Timothy Ballard; read pp206-236 to get the full story). It is not “proof,” but it is Divine evidence of His loving hand. Ballard’s book is an amazing piece of research coming out in 2020 showing God’s sacred covenant on America, and the importance of American’s living up to that covenant.
Jefferson died a few hours before Adams and showed him the reality of the spirit world beyond death. Furthermore, these two men and their wives as spirits appeared to Wilford Woodruff in the St. George Temple and stated that they had, “laid the foundation of the government you now enjoy…” and asked that these sacred ordinances of baptism, etc. and eternal marriage be performed for them. Several others appeared as well. (The Other Eminent Men of Wilford Woodruff by Vicki Jo Anderson)
Repenting and Turning Back to Christ is the Answer.
The Savior said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father but by me.” (John 14:6) The Savior is “the truth.” In my life, I have learned some incredibly valuable lessons on how to know the “truth.” He said, “If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” (John 7:17) EXPERIMENTATION: If we truly repent and live what He teaches, we will find the fruit of the tree of life to be delicious, “as I partook of the fruit thereof it filled my soul with exceedingly great joy;… which was desirable above all other fruit.” (1 Nephi 8:12, 14)
In the sermon on the mount, the Savior posited this profound truth, “Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles? Even so, every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” (Matthew 7:16-18) This amazing scripture provides both the necessary and sufficient conditions to know the truth. Let us decide to partake of the fruit, which is most desirable to the soul.
In addition, our loving God gives us the Spirit of Christ (our conscience) to know good from evil when we are born. (John 1:9) If we reject that light, then our conscience can lose its sensitivity. “Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” (1 Timothy 4:2). The elite and the media often lie because they have no moral code to live by in defense of their atheistic views and are deceiving massive amounts of folks.
The consequences of rejecting the truth are enormous, as we find ourselves at a point of potential destruction in this foreordained land of the free. The critical decision Americans have is will we wake up and repent and return to the God of this land, who is Jesus Christ, or will we lose our freedoms and be “swept off.” (Ether 2:10-12)
Scientific Evidence for a Loving God
We talk about the law of gravity, which goes all the way back to Newton’s theory. In Chapter 21 of my book, I share an experiment that violates this theory and gives evidence for a fifth dimension beyond space and time where God and His angels perform their marvelous work and where they are not constrained by gravity. The falsification of this theory opens up faith in the living and loving God.
In this same chapter, I share this experiment as one of seven experiments we did touching on God’s Unified-Field Theory (UFT), and in Chapter 22 using this UFT, I share evidence of how prayer works. And in Chapter 5, I tell the story of how our Grand-daughter, Mary Owen (Grimm), was saved through the power of prayer after spending six days and nights alone on Mount Hood after a falling accident – a TOTALLY-documented miracle. Now Mary and her husband Ben and three children are sharing the gospel with the people in Papua New Guinea.
These are examples of testing His promise, “If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine…” In this work with His UFT, we feel we have only touched on His marvelous TRUTHS of how the universe works, and the experience was most edifying.
I have also found 1800 phrases in our scriptures that I believe tie all the way back to the language of Adam. When one studies their use, distribution, and significance, it provides direct evidence of God’s hand in the design of our scriptures and of the truths of the restoration of the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the Lord’s fingerprint.
“Look at all the bad in the world. Is there a good God that made this so?”
Then there are those when they see all the bad in the world, and they say, “If there is a God, why would He allow all the suffering and horrible things to happen?” This tough question has been dealt with by many sages over the ages, and it only has its answer in the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, as I explain in Chapter 2 of my book. Looking through God’s eyes, we see the trials and challenges of life as building blocks and learning experiences instead of stumbling stones.
“God is faithful” (1 Corinthians 1:9)
We can totally trust in Him. And when we do, we open ourselves to the truths of eternal lives. We see God in science and religion, and how God does His marvelous work and a wonder. If we have eyes to see and hearts to feel and obtain the witness of the Holy Ghost of His truths, we have His incredible promise that we will grow in light and truth: “He that keepeth His commandments receiveth truth and light, until he is glorified in truth and knoweth all things.” (D&C 93:28) And as we listen with the Spirit of the Holy Ghost we observe that “all things bear record of me.” (Moses 6:63) We see His love manifest everywhere, in His marvelous creations, and especially in His infinite and perfect atonement. “Look to God and live.” (Alma 37:47) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32) “if the Son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36) The future of whether America’s will be free or not depends on our choices. Let us hearken to His voice and chose liberty ; HE IS THE WAY!.
