Pick Your Life Raft

I'm still reading the Book of Mormon three times (or more) daily and it astonishes me how much is revealed when you read that much and that often.  I have a testimony that this book, the Book of Mormon is what was given by God to establish peace in the land.

I have friends and family who now take up with one political ideology or another, one philosophy or another and swear that this or that ideology or set of laws are what are going to re-establish peace in the land.

Let me bear you my testimony and I know this first hand: if the political ideology is not inspired by God himself, it isn't going to stand.  If they aren't established by him and directed by him, they are no more than the preachers in Joseph Smith's day "They teach for doctrine the commandments of men, having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof, they draw near to me with their lips but their hearts are far from me."  They too will fall with the great and spacious building.  All that is going to be left is that which God himself has established.  It won't be a philosophy, it won't be an ideology, it won't be some historical traditional work that saves people - they are all going to be destroyed.  Ultimately the only thing left is going to be that which is from God.

So if you're looking to an ideology or political party or philosophy to save you.....better choose a better life-raft my friend because they are all going down and going down soon.  In God We Trust.
