  1. I was mistaken, it’s verse 5 that you need to read. Here it is: 5 And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. (D&C 98) So it’s plain to see that unless you’re going to be stiff necked about it, God has gifted the Constitution to all mankind as the form of government that he specifically approves. If you would like, I can provide you with many quotes from general authorities, including Church Presidents, who proclaim it’s God’s desire that the
  2. And it’s because you have no idea what I’m talking about that you continue to be in error. Go back and read verse 4 — something you likely inadvertently left out of your analysis — and then tell me if it isn’t true that it’s God’s will that the American Constitution is the system of earthly government he desires every nation of the wold to adopt?
  3. If there’s a reason why present-day America has largely fallen from its exceptional status, it’s because too many Americans - including a majority of its political leaders, media personalities, educators, and even many of its business leaders - no longer believe America is an exceptional land of promise and no longer believe in the God of their fathers nor his holy laws. The full realization of America as the exceptional, divinely ordained land of promise will not be realized until the establishment of Zion and the day of its ultimate triumph; even the day when the American city of New Jerusal
  4. When that blessed day comes when Zion is established and the kingdom of God is spread abroad on the earth, the Capitol of the millennial world government will be the New Jerusalem located in the American promised land, and those worthy to live in the flesh in that blessed day will thank the Lord, with tears of gratitude, that the constitutional system that once governed only the United States will govern every nation on earth. Will you have a problem with this?
  5. You must surely know that in Doctrine and Covenants constitution and constitutional are used interchangeably? If not, be advised.
  6. I will shortly prove analysis is incorrect. But before I do please explain how the words “And as pertaining to the law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this (the Constitutional system) cometh of evil” is speaking of a system of divinely inspired government that’s meant to be a blessing only to the American people?
  7. I’m presuming you do realize that since the days of Brigham Young many Church Presidents and apostles have endorsed this prophecy and reiterated it’s validity as a promise that will surely come to pass. If you’ll forgive me, I’ll defer to the leaders of the Church before I defer to your sarcastic and dismissive assessment of the prophecy. You are apparently unaware of the fact that with the establishment and triumph of Zion will inevitably come a worldwide enthronement of the divinely inspired constitutional system of government that will guarantee the inalienable, God-given rights of all
  8. I’m surprised you missed the plain meaning of the very verses you quoted. Let’s take a look... 6 “Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land;” It’s manifestly obvious that “the constitutional law of the land” spoken of in verse 6 is none other than the Constitution of the United States. Yes? ”7 “And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil.” And it’s also as plain as can be that the expression,’‘And as pertaining to the law of man” has re
  9. Some interesting pertinent quotes from President Brigham Young will follow,. There are many others if you’d like me to post them as well. President Young’s convictions fly in the face of any of the naysayers who would try to minimize the central importance of the Constitution of the United States to the success and endurance of latter-day kingdom of God on earth. President Young makes it clear the Constitution is not just of utmost importance to the United States itself but that it’s equally important to the rest of the world as well. If anyone wants to find a foremost advocate for American ex
  10. “When the day comes in which the Kingdom of God will bear rule, the flag of the United States will proudly flutter unsullied on the flag staff of liberty and equal rights, without a spot to sully its fair surface; the glorious flag our fathers have bequeathed to us will then be unfurled to the breeze by those who have power to hoist it aloft and defend its sanctity.” (Brigham Young)
  11. Isn’t it obvious it’s the Constitution of the United Stated as it existed and was generally understood and interpreted in 1833, the year the revelation was given? In the year the revelation was given the people and politicians of the United States still believed in a very limited and strictly proscribed role for the central government. But since then the voters and politicians have long since given up on the originalist idea of a small central government with very limited enumerated powers, as clearly and unambiguously set forth at the founding, in favor of a very powerful and intrusive centr
  12. The Lord himself said any system of earthly government that’s any more or less than the Constitution of the United States “cometh of evil.” Therefore it makes perfect sense that the Constitution of the United States would be the earthly law governing Zion prior to the Second Coming. And just because the Constitution is going to be sustained as the law of the land prior to the Lord’s advent doesn’t mean the the Constitution is going to save us. What it does mean, as the prophecy states, is the people of God are going to save the Constitution, not the other way around.
  13. I most certainly was not referring to the White Horse Prophecy. What I was referring is statements made by several of the leaders of the Church who, throughout the years, have said the specific, narrow prophecy about the Constitution being saved by the elders of Israel is true and will be fulfilled. In fact, it was President Brigham Young who testified that at the time of the Second Coming the flag of the United States of America will be flying over the city of the New Jerusalem. Personally, I believe the way the Constitution is going to be saved is that it will be sustained and held invi
  14. So I guess this means we’ll have to give up on fulfilling the prophecy that the elders of Israel will save the Constitution as it hangs by a thread in order to maintain harmony among the members?
  15. Quite frankly, I’m persuaded what we’re encountering here is a lack of ability to A) think critically, B) comprehend subtlety and nuance, and C) effectively analyze the written word so as to gain a clear and insightful understanding of what’s been read. It’s very difficult to effectively play ‘gotcha’ when your arguments are poorly thought out and half baked.
