Time For Another Mormon Prophet Post Featuring Gordon B. Hinckley!!!
Well, I've covered Hinckley pretty well in my original two posts and then here and there in subsequent posts but I don't think I'll ever get tired of exposing him and his words. Gordon B. Hinckley is the main reason that I'm now sitting on the outside looking in on the Mormon Church. Every interview that he did just revealed to me more and more that he was a fraud and didn't even have a testimony of what he was trying to say or in most cases, what he was trying not to say. Anyway, I knew that on several occasions, that he had stated that the Church was either true or a fraud, etc. Well, the other day, I found another instance where he said it. Anyway, here are some of my favorite all time quotes from Gordon B. Hinckley that in my opinion, shed quite a bit of light on how he really feels. I'm sure that I'll be doing many more of these posts on Hinckley as I continue to find more of his quotes.
Here are the quotes. This first one is from the Gordon B. Hinckley speech, “The Marvelous Foundation of Our Faith,” Ensign, Nov. 2002, 78:
We declare without equivocation that God the Father and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, appeared in person to the boy Joseph Smith.
When I was interviewed by Mike Wallace on the 60 Minutes program, he asked me if I actually believed that. I replied, “Yes, sir. That’s the miracle of it.”
That is the way I feel about it. Our whole strength rests on the validity of that vision. It either occurred or it did not occur. If it did not, then this work is a fraud. If it did, then it is the most important and wonderful work under the heavens.
Now from Gordon B. Hinckley's speech, “Loyalty,” Ensign, May 2003, 58
Now may I say a word concerning loyalty to the Church.
We see much indifference. There are those who say, "The Church won't dictate to me how to think about this, that, or the other, or how to live my life."
No, I reply, the Church will not dictate to any man how he should think or what he should do. The Church will point out the way and invite every member to live the gospel and enjoy the blessings that come of such living. The Church will not dictate to any man, but it will counsel, it will persuade, it will urge, and it will expect loyalty from those who profess membership therein.
When I was a university student, I said to my father on one occasion that I felt the General Authorities had overstepped their prerogatives when they advocated a certain thing. He was a very wise and good man. He said, "The President of the Church has instructed us, and I sustain him as prophet, seer, and Revelator and intend to follow his counsel."
(Keep in mind now that he is speaking of people being obedient to him, Gordon B. Hinckley, who is now the Mormon Prophet, Seer and Revelator. So he is telling people to be obey him and anything that he might say. That my friends is a cult leader, plain and simple!!)
Then he said:
Each of us has to face the matter—either the Church is true, or it is a fraud. There is no middle ground. It is the Church and kingdom of God, or it is nothing.
In Gordon B. Hinkley's, “My Testimony,” Ensign, Nov. 1993, 51, he said the following:
I thank my Father in Heaven for the testimony I have of the reality of the First Vision. I have stood among the trees where Joseph knelt as a boy, and heard the whisperings of the Spirit that it happened as he said it happened. I have read the words of critics, who from 1820 until now have tried to destroy the validity of that account. They have made much of the fact that there were several versions and that the account as we now have it was not written until 1838. So what? I find security for my faith in the simplicity of his narrative, in its lack of argument, in its straightforward reasonableness, and in the fact that he sealed his testimony with his life’s blood. Could there have been a stronger endorsement?
Yeah, so what Hinckley? So what? You claim to be a prophet of God, a Prophet, Seer and Revelator, I say this, so what? Who cares, right? You claim your Church is the one and only true Church on the face of the earth as revealed to Joseph Smith, so what? So what? So What? So what?
You, Hinckley and your Church are frauds and you know it!! That's why when you read the critics words that bring up great points, like the fact that Joseph Smith didn't write his own history, that there are several versions, the one that you use now wasn't even written until 1838 and that no one even knew until then that Joseph had claimed to see the Father and the Son in 1820, all you can say is so what? That's a pretty piss poor response to your critics from God's one and only Prophet, Seer and Revelator.
To me, it sounds like the attitude of someone that can't dispute what is being said by the critics and is looking for a quick way out that will make the Morgbots relax and laugh a little, which is exactly what they did when he made that remark. They laughed!! Ha Ha!! Yeah...the critics have pointed out all of these true things and so what? Ha ha ha!! It's just insane that people are so brainwashed, like I once was and that they continue believing the crap that spews out of his mouth. Hinckley knows the truth. Let me share something else with you that he said in the same talk that should prove that he knows more than anyone else. He loves to brag about how long he has been a General Authority so that proves that he should know EVERYTHING about the Church which I'm sure he does. He said the following, trying to be ever so humble:
"I have now served as a General Authority longer than any living man other than the President of the Church. I think I have worked in the administrative offices of the Church longer than anyone now living. I have seen and known for nearly sixty years in a personal way all who have served in the First Presidency, the Council of the Twelve, the First Council of the Seventy, and more recently those of the First and Second Quorums of the Seventy, as well as the Presiding Bishopric. They have been and are mortal men, not entirely without human weaknesses. Two or three out of very many during that long time have stumbled. But I believe that no better men are to be found in any cause anywhere on earth. They have not taken this honor unto themselves, but they have been called of God, as was Aaron. They serve in a spirit of consecration and love. They are men of prayer and faith, men who hold the priesthood and in humility exercise divine authority. Their only objective is to build and enhance the kingdom."
Gordon B. Hinckley has worked for the Church basically since he was 19, when he served his mission and became an AP about 6 months into his mission. Then on returning, one of the first things he did was to go and meet with the First Presidency to report on the status of the Church in Europe.(How many missionaries got or get that opportunity?) He then went to work for the Church and except for a brief time when he worked for the Railroad in Salt Lake, he has worked for the Church ever since, both before and after. He left the railroad to be the Churches PR man, thus explaining why he is so good with the BS.
So he has been basically supported by the Church ever since he was 21 or so. Let's see, he's 95 now. So for about the last 74 years, he has had anything he wanted without any financial worries, thanks to the Church. How would it be to be so coddled your whole life. I bet most of us could live to 95 with his life. Now he lives in a multi-million dollar condo that is much bigger than most of our houses. He receives somewhere in the neighborhood of $500,000/year although we don't know for sure because that type of information is a secret and not available to us normal people. So, why do they serve again? It's for money, plain and simple. Money and security is the name of the game!! All they care about is keeping the fraud going so that they can all continue to reap the rewards, money and security. Those are the fruits of being a General Authority.
Anyway, I guess that's all I have to say for now but Hinckley makes me sick. Why would he continue to say that the Church could be a fraud? He says it simply to put questioning members of the Church into a comfort zone. These members think to themselves, "he certainly wouldn't mention to the world that the Church could be a fraud if it really was." In other words, Hinckley's just playing mind games with the membership. He probably gets a kick out of it. It's like saying to someone that wasn't sure about you, after paying them with a check, "I would never bounce a check or joking about how it was going to bounce sky high."
Now, in some cases, they might be joking but then again, there are the cases where they would be trying to make the worried individual feel comfortable and convince them that they are a good guy and that the check wouldn't bounce. So, then the person deposits the check and lo and behold, it bounces. Wow, it actually sounds like Mark Hoffman!! Everybody thought he was a great guy, including Hinckley at one point and he was bouncing checks all over the place for large sums of money. Not to mention that he was killing 2 people by blowing them up and had created 100's of forgeries.
Now, keep in mind, Hinckley had no idea that this stuff was happening and he had personally met, with Hoffman, in his own office at the Church office building on several occasions and not once, ever, did he suspect or receive a revelation from God or perceive that Hoffman was a murdering forger. I strongly feel that the blood of those two people that died, is all over the hands of the Church, specifically Gordon B. Hinckley. It also proves that he isn't inspired of God whatsoever. Surely God would have intervened, right? He wasn't the Prophet then but he was the one in the middle of everything. Not once, has he ever apologized for his involvement in the entire Mark Hoffman scandal, but then again, why should we be surprised? The Church never apologizes for anything!!
So my point is, Hinckley is bouncing his testimony like a bad check. He brings up what is the reality, that the Church is a fraud, while making a joke about it and making everyone feel comfortable that it isn't a fraud when in reality, it is a fraud and he knows that it is. Hinckley's testimony is no better than a bounced, rubber check!! Hinckley's testimony is nothing more than a forgery!! In other words, it isn't worth a cent!! But then I guess we could just use Hinckley's own words and say, SO WHAT!! Right? After all, that's what he says about the Churches critics!!
