1. The tearing down of HUMBLE WELL BUILT Church College Buildings & to REPLACE them with an EXTRAVAGANT & COSTLY KEEP UP WITH THE JONES’S LOOKING STAKE CENTRE IS NOT in my HUMBLE opinion a WISE USE of SACRED TITHING FUNDS!
2. The above SCENARIO REMINDS me of the LARGE & SPACIOUS BUILDING referenced in 1 Nephi 12:18 – http://bit.ly/1xYpMnP
3. From what little I know regarding CCNZ & it’s CONTRIVED PREMEDITATED PIECEMEAL DEMOLITION to me is COMPARABLE to the SOUTH CANTERBURY FINANCE fiasco that LATTER DAY GADIANTON ROBBERS & MURDERERS PERPETRATED.
4. So I CONCUR with the author of this blog that:
a. the WIDOWS MITE is been ARROGANTLY SQUANDERED!
b. UNRIGHTEOUS DOMINION has been (& still is?) exercised.
5. To me this ENTIRE AFFAIR is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!
6. It PROVOKES REFLECTION upon:
a. Matthew 13:38-41 – http://bit.ly/1yD2XGg
b. PRES HEBER C KIMBALL’s PROPHECY – Conference Report, Oct. 1930, p. 58-59:
“After a while the GENTILES will gather in SALT LAKE CITY by the thousands, and this will be AMONG the WICKED CITIES of the world. A SPIRIT of SPECULATION and EXTRAVAGANCE will take possession of the Saints, and the results will be financial bondage.”
c. Doctrine & Covenants 112:25-26 – http://bit.ly/1GTgxvd
7. In terms of those who GENUINELY BELIEVE they are doing GOD’s WILL & have / still are COMPLYING with ECCLESIASTICAL DICTATE from SALT LAKE CITY! Nga mihinui.
Mathew 24:24 ” … they shall deceive the very elect”.
