…he has his imaginary Jesus (toy dolly) and his imaginary Heavenly Father (blanket) to think about to comfort him.
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. God is our Father and we are accountable to Him. And where much is given much is expected. You have left the strait and narrow path and are trying to convince others to do so.
You will be held accountable for your actions at the judgement bar of God.
I know that to be true.
That is what you have, MG. It doesn't scare me. Threats about the judgement bar don't scare me either. It's a religious scare tactic to try and get people to conform to religion. That doesn't work with me. I'm over that. Way beyond falling for the oldest trick in the book: Threats of hellfire and punishment!
Look, you want (through faith) your Jesus and your make-believe Heavenly Father to be real; just as real as those logs on Nephi's beach which the Church trucked in on the flat-bed of a diesel truck in order to make a movie. It's all about faith in things you can't see and how one feels about it. You have no proof of anything. Nor have you seen Jesus or Heavenly Father. It's all faith in something you can't see or prove. Timbers were not growing in the mountains of Bountiful. Never mind the fantasy in it all! Just have faith. There, there, a little pat on the head and it’s all better now. Just believe.
Jesus Christ is no more a Savior than there is a king's name in the writing of Facsimile No. 3 nor did Heavenly Father appear to Smith anymore that Abraham is sitting on Osiris’s throne. Smith was a liar and that is what he did best. Scare the people into believing in a God who will judge and flame for not doing what he commands.
So, where are those timbers? Where did they come from? I'll tell you where they came from: The imagination of Joseph Smith's own mind. Just like the Explanations of Facsimile No. 3. Hocus pocus nonsense.
