Spencer W. Kimball Mentally Stoned, Given the “Instant Deep Freeze”

Church President, Spencer W. Kimball in 1976 was not pleased with the LDS people or the war lustful nation

WWII Veteran and LDS Scholar, Hugh Nibley, says Spencer W. Kimball’s 1976 message on the Bicentennial celebration of the United States was “given the instant deep freeze” by the LDS people.  These warmonger and “always a military solution” oriented people did not like this message:

When I review the performance of this people…..I am appalled and frightened…

We are a warlike people, easily distracted from our assignment of preparing for the coming of the Lord. When enemies rise up, we commit vast resources to the fabrication of gods of stone and steel—ships, planes, missiles, fortifications—and depend on them for protection and deliverance. When threatened, we align ourselves against the enemy instead of aligning ourselves with the kingdom of God; we train a man in the art of war and call him a patriot, thus, in the manner of Satan’s counterfeit of true patriotism, perverting the Savior’s teaching:

Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven.” (Matt. 5:44–45.)

We forget that if we are righteous, the Lord will either not suffer our enemies to come upon us—and this is the special promise to the inhabitants of the land of the Americas (see 2 Ne. 1:7)—or he will fight our battles for us (Ex. 14:14D&C 98:37, to name only two references of many). This he is able to do, for as he said at the time of his betrayal, “Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?” (Matt. 26:53.) We can imagine what fearsome soldiers they would be. King Jehoshaphat and his people were delivered by such a troop (see 2 Chr. 20), and when Elisha’s life was threatened, he comforted his servant by saying, “Fear not; for they that be with us are more than they that be with them” (2 Kgs. 6:16). The Lord then opened the eyes of the servant, “And he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” (2 Kgs. 6:17.) “Enoch, too, was a man of great faith who would not be distracted from his duties by the enemy: “And so great was the faith of Enoch, that he led the people of God, and their enemies came to battle against them; and he spake the word of the Lord, and the earth trembled, and the mountains fled, even according to his command; and the rivers of water were turned out of their course; and the roar of the lions were heard out of the wilderness; and all nations feared greatly, so powerful was the word of Enoch.” (Moses 7:13.)

What are we to fear when the Lord is with us? Can we not take the Lord at his word and exercise a particle of faith in him? Our assignment is positive: to forsake the things of the world as goals in themselves; to desist from idolatry and press forward in faith; to carry the gospel to our enemies, that they might no longer be our enemies.

We must leave off the worship of modern-day idols and a reliance on the “arm of flesh,” for the Lord has said to all the world in our day, “I will not spare any that remain in Babylon.” (D&C 64:24.) (Spencer W. Kimball,”The False Gods We Worship,” Ensign, June 1976, 3.)

America’s great danger comes from her abandonment of the non-interventionist foreign policy of the US Founders, who were inspired by God in their declarations and positions.  The people are foolish when they succumb to the wiles of “ambitious and scheming leaders” in our day who bring them into long and costly wars burdening them with heavy taxation.
Mormons for Ron Paul reject the neoconservative blood lust as expressed by the other candidates, shills for the Establishment Council on Foreign Relations agenda, which is the establishment of a world government and the overthrow of the United States Constitution, as outlined and exposed in such books as “None Dare Call it Conspiracy,” endorsed by Ezra Taft Benson.

  1. I liked reading the website, and based upon 35 years of study oc government, the founders, and the constitution, I believe it to be true in every particular.

  2. I want to share my testimony that all of the words of the Prophets and the information provided on this website, http://www.MormonsForRonPaul.com, is true and I encourage everyone to take the time to read and study the words of the “Rejected Prophets” section. These are not just words of nice advice from nice men, these truly are the words of Prophets of the one true God. Their words are the words of Jesus Christ. Thank you,

    Tim
