CHINA REPLACING THE TEN COMMANDMENTS WITH STATIST GARBAGE

What a bunch of bunk.  Truly, what is going on in China - and that which will be imposed on this "Christian" nation in the near future (read Visions of Glory for details), is part of the mark of the beast.

Some of you who do not hail the call to come out from Babylon and to not partake of her delicacies, will have the not-so-fun task of having your head cut off, the firing squad and so many other fun things if you do not deny the Christ as your Lord and Savior.  These are really sick people.  The first iteration is social scoring (not unlike the almighty credit score that every mortgaged person worships) and the final stop of that train is people literally losing their minds......

Here is a report from one of my intelligence sources:

3:23The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has forced Christian churches across Henan province to replace the Ten Commandments with quotes from President Xi Jinping in its latest effort to “sinicize” religious practice in the officially atheist country.One pastor from a state-run Protestant church said that the CCP’s latest move is part of a systematic plan to erode Christian doctrine in the country, adding that the ultimate goal of the party is to “become God.”
The government’s first step is to prohibit religious couplets” said the pastor, who spoke under the condition of anonymity. “Then it dismantles crosses and starts to implement the ‘four requirements’ by ordering the national flag and ‘core socialist values’ to be placed in churches.”
“Surveillance cameras to monitor believers and religious activities are then installed. The last step is to replace the Ten Commandments with Xi Jinping’s speeches,” he said.
“The Communist Party’s ultimate goal is to ‘become God.’ This is what the devil has always done,” he said.
The pastor could have also included another step in the CCP’s “sinicization” process: namely, the replacement of images of Jesus Christ with photos of Xi.

BOWLING FOR BAMBI AND TURNING THE OTHER CHEEK

This was a response to my wife over how I nearly bought the farm driving to my job a few days ago.  She liked the quote at the end of my ramble - so I will put it on here as an Iraq original diary entry and quote.  No plagiarism for once....:

Yep – the freaky part is timing.  Several points along the road until where I found deer near Ft Mac I sped up just a little.  Bumped the + button on the cruise where I was pretty sure I would not run into a cop.  That put me ahead just a bit of where I would have been had I not bumped that control.

Within two minutes after I passed the deer, there was an oncoming semi.  No way to use the oncoming lane and it would have been “bowling for bambi”.  I would have taken out at least six of the ten of them to avoid a surely-fatal head on with the semi…..

Sheesh…..  I had just bumped the speed up to about 120 thinking “I haven’t seen a deer in a while”…..  Well – it just made my emergency maneuver that much more fun.  I had about 100 feet to get fully into the other lane and shoulder going about 120kms/hr…..  It did not push the Jetta to its handling limits – but pretty close.  Thankfully they all just stood there and did not bolt into the other lane like happened with Neal’s car.

That was that deer’s role – to be the impetus to get us moved to Cardston when things came to a head in Kalispell.  I think of that and thank that deer for it’s sacrifice.  I really see it that way.  When I get to the other side, I will have a conversation with that deer and get all the details.  Kind of like I did with the Dinara hit and run scenario…..  I hate deception and love knowing things as they really are.

I will spend “days” analyzing how most of life’s critical moments catalyzed.  All of the inputs; all of the outputs.  That stuff fascinates me – and the reason I love airplane crash investigations.  There are always multiple factors that go into the final event; almost as if orchestrated by a higher being to prevent – or allowed just to happen.  Same thing with near misses.  Many, many times as we solved problems during the build of the 777 or 747, I felt unseen hands guiding the decision-making process to an outcome that would avoid a future disaster.

When there was corruption in the process (good people, under the influence of the Holy Ghost were fired or suppressed as that 737 Max FAA Authorized Rep was, when he dug in his heels to stop Management from forcing the bad system architecture through to meet program schedule), that divine process was hampered or extinguished (we all have agency for good or bad) and the results were disaster, possible untimely death and a forced solution to try and root out the corruption.  Same thing with the disaster that happened at the end of the Nephite run – avoidable death had a people rooted out the corruption and then followed good principle.

The answer to your question as to why there is always a cloud of controversy that follows me – is that I stop and take the time to point out corruption and then shine a spotlight on it.  I usually end up in a firefight over it – but without being a source of contention (causing a problem out of thin air), I would rather be dead than to be one of those people who just “goes along, to get along”.  Real men stand up for what is right.  I count myself as one of them.  Not one of the basement-dwelling soy-boys that society has fostered these days through coddling and excuse-making.  The Book of Mormon commands us that “when we see this combination among us, to wake up to the state of our awful situation” and basically fight it.  NOT to do the “good Christian thing” and to “turn the other cheek”.  I hope people do not associate “turning the other cheek” with “turning a blind eye” to corruption around us such as giving up our Second Amendment rights, to going along to get along with corrupt POS that need a short rope and a tall branch instead of “acceptance” or “inclusion” or any other neuspeak term from the PC lexicon.

SHOW ME THE WAY - STYX

Just enjoying some 80's throwback:

Love me some Styx:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsYvuxmzxX4

This song is about enduring through life and finishing strong in marriage, your quest for a Godly relationship with diety, and just seeking out truth and inspiration.  Never giving up.  Too many are giving up on these relationships.  It is about sticking to it through the roughest of times.  This is the test.

Here is another one of my favorites from the lead singer of Styx:

Enjoy!

MICHAEL ROBINSON AS MICHELLE OBAMA

 Got this from my doctor buddy who I first introduced to the idea of Michelle being a dude.

After watching the dance vid I think she was sold....

Yep, even a virginal, unmarried doc can tell the difference between a chick and a dude:

CATASTROPHISM AND THE FLOOD

I am really warming up to this theory.  It nails just about every counter argument down

JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA - TRAVELS TO ENGLAND

Folks, this was a request by a reader that has been a source of illumination for me.  He has filled in many missing pieces of information in regards to the last days timeline.  I would very much like to meet him in person one day.

He asked if I had of more info on the travels of Joseph of Arimathea with the Holy Family (before and after the crucifixion).  All I did was put "Arimathea" in the search box in the upper left corner of the blog and went from there:

https://woodyoubelieveit.blogspot.com/search?q=arimathea

I forget how much cool stuff I have been able to dredge up (have been led to) over the years.  Most of it is in response to a question I have had.  It takes on average a few weeks and I usually get the answer.  God has always been good to me that way.  Some answers take years - but I am added to line upon line, here a little, there a little until one day (likely when time is no more), I hope to have a fullness.  There is so much to learn!

REPORT ON THE SPECIAL STAKE CONFERENCE

Well - major bummer for the Saints in Cardston.

We were given no special instructions other than to repent, from Elder Rasband.

The other Stake had a 70 that gave no special instructions other than to "do better".

I take that as a repent....

Obviously, people will have different instructions for different places based on what their individual circumstances are.

We talked over dinner with our favorite peeps how we can repent.  We talked about apostasy and how we can avoid that.  More and more crashing and burning.  Children, friends, family, church members that were formerly considered strong and firm in the faith are going after the world. 

Many are just plain weary in doing good.

When all your friends are going "gay" or hooking up and you find yourself "missing out" on the worldly activities, you become weary.  When all your friends are out at the bars, at sporting events on Sundays, playing violent video games, watching inappropriate movies and you feel like you are the only one holding the line, you weary and can let go of the iron rod.  Thus wandering into paths unknown and getting lost in the mists of darkness.  And so it goes.

The antidote is to surround yourself with good people who love what is right, and to repent daily.  Constantly.  Good music.  Good activities.  Strengthen yourself, your spouse and your family.  Draw them close.  Once good is gone (lost election or assassination) and the gads seize power, it is over.  Then we will simply have to endure.  They are having to in California.  The battle for sanity is lost there.  Thus the reason it will be among the first areas that are destroyed.

Those who are not rooted in good principle do not even see the danger or the awfulness of the situation they are in as they snooze away.  All is not well in Zion - that it is, is the great lie of the Great Deceiver and the Father of All Lies.

HEAR YE, HEAR YE ALL APOSTATES AND SELF DE-SELECTORS

This is really important info to read:

Wisdom from Thomas B. Marsh, after he came back to the Church:

"if you will take my advice, you will stand by the authorities; but if you go away and the Lord loves you as much as he did me, he will whip you back again.

"Many have said to me, 'How is it that a man like you, who understood so much of the revelations of God as recorded in the Book of Doctrine and Covenants, should fall away?' I told them not to feel too secure, but to take heed lest they also should fall; (Deut. 4:9 1 Cor. 10:12) for I had no scruples in my mind as to the possibility of men falling away.

"I can say, in reference to the Quorum of the Twelve, to which I belonged, that I did not consider myself a whit behind any of them, and I suppose that others had the same opinion; but, let no one feel too secure: for, before you think of it, your steps will slide. You will not then think nor feel for a moment as you did before you lost the Spirit of Christ; for when men apostatize, they are left to grovel in the dark.

"I have sought diligently to know the Spirit of Christ since I turned my face Zionward, and I believe I have obtained it. I have frequently wanted to know how my apostasy began, and I have come to the conclusion that I must have lost the Spirit of the Lord out of my heart.

"The next question is, 'How and when did you lose the Spirit?' I became jealous of the Prophet, and then I saw double, and overlooked everything that was right, and spent all my time in looking for the evil; and then, when the Devil began to lead me, it was easy for the carnal mind to rise up, which is anger, jealousy, and wrath. I could feel it within me; I felt angry and wrathful; and the Spirit of the Lord being gone, as the Scriptures say, I was blinded, and I thought I saw a beam in brother Joseph's eye, but it was nothing but a mote, and my own eye was filled with the beam; but I thought I saw a beam in his, and I wanted to get it out; and, as brother Heber says, I got mad, and I wanted everybody else to be mad.

"I talked with Brother Brigham and Brother Heber, and I wanted them to be mad like myself; and I saw they were not mad, and I got madder still because they were not. Brother Brigham, with a cautious look, said, 'Are you the leader of the Church, brother Thomas?' I answered, 'No.' 'Well then,' said he, 'Why do you not let that alone?'

"Well, this is about the amount of my hypocrisy—I meddled with that which was not my business. But let me tell you, my brethren and friends, if you do not want to suffer in body and mind, as I have done—if there are any of you that have the seeds of apostasy in you, do not let them make their appearance, but nip that spirit in the bud; for it is misery and affliction in this world, and destruction in the world to come."

-Remarks of Thomas B. Marsh, Journal of Discourses 5:207

EXCELLENT ANALYSIS ON THE 737 MAX.

This guy, for not being a Boeing guy, is spot on.  Great analysis:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6dMlbCPmX0

Just an interest piece.  I flight tested the 737NG and worked on the 737 Hor Stab in Flight Controls.

It was the departure of the Hor Stab from an MD-83 that saved my job after 9/11.  A miracle of sorts in our inconsequential lives - but it was HUGE for our family at the time.
