Mormon Polygamy and things

 A response made to a church scholar on mormon polygamy today: 

Those affidavits (made by church members stating Joseph Smith was living polygamy) are based on the beliefs and opinions of members fed with the "follow the prophet or be apostate" teachings of Brigham Young on that topic. He made himself the "one man" with the "keys" to say who gets to have plural wives or anything else. He abused his authority as a head priest and as king of the land. Joseph was doing after this life sealings. Not expanding his carnal marital options. He had no seed with other sealed women, tho a fertile man. Later he learned to do law of adoption sealings and he did those instead of marital sealings. The Tanners and others have much success, because the church and it's scholars still teach that Joseph was doing exactly what they preach is wrong. Joseph's name is being cleared after all this time. By God's real servants in our day. His new covenant people who will be used to redeem Zion soon to come. Joseph was not expanding carnal opportunity. He was not making underaged teenagers his carnal wives. He was not sealing other men's wives to share them. He was not trying to impregnate anyone else but Emma. Eliza said she did not consider herself a carnal wife, and I trust what she said. Those women were not carnal wives like those of old who were reluctantly and temporarily allowed to live something that is foreign to Marriage in the heavens. Foreign to the ideal marriage intended for us in this life, the only type that can be made eternal. John Bennett took Joseph's misunderstood and totally innocent and actually exalting, afterlife sealings, and expanded his carnal desires and opportunities. Brigham took what Joseph was doing, to expand his carnal sexual opportunities, and to preach that a man with a plurality of wives is absolutely required by all to become exalted. With 50+ wives, he certainly did expand his options, teaching by word and example.

The church has been under condemnation since 1832 according to the D&C. The Lord tried to bring it out in Kirtland and Nauvoo. Tried to endow them with power from on high. Tried to give them a chance at Zion for the last time to happen in their day. Joseph was taken early. Temple lost and fully destroyed by fire eventually. The members were cast out completely, coming to the deserts of mexico/salty lake valley. Displacement, death and sickness and loss of land and property. Those are covenant curses. A people given an opportunity for so much and failed and received the penalties they themselves agreed to receive if they did. Brigham Young, and all the errors, false teachings from teaching polygamy is the more exalted way, the only way to be exalted, blood atonement suicide nonsense, oaths or revenge to the killers of Joseph in temple rituals, indian wars to assist the darkness already going on in the USA displacing those who were rightful owners, and unjustified murders of their men, women and children in Mountain Meadows and Utah Indian war and others... all of it, is a sure sign that failure occurred, curses and penalties happened. And all that was followed up with confusion, contradiction and misunderstood teachings on important things like marriage and sealing and fullness of priesthood, not to mention the heavens as brass lack of revelation and divine communication, lack of prophecy, lack of anything that even closely resembles what Joseph Smith actually was... and all those dudes that line our books of scripture were.

Denver, however odd it may appear, has been called of God to do what he is doing. There are thousands of awakened, repentant, truth seeking LDS, preparing the way for the redemption of Zion at last. While the heads of the church see not, prophecy nothing, seer no new scripture into place, and have no idea how or when God is going to redeem Zion. In fact, they cast out the righteous from within the church, who are reconnecting with the Lord, a church that should have welcomed such things. And one leader went so far to actually teach that such things are not necessary and shouldn't actually be sought after. Tho it still teaches thru it's temple ordinances to do those very things that Denver and others have experienced. They abuse their authority be saying stop writing your books, sharing your measage or else. God says do, leaders say don't. Man obeys God and suffers removal from a church he loved. Then they reject his pleadings to stay, all the way to the top. Then they cast out any who simply reads his writings and agrees with his view of history. A people who actually care sooo much about their religion. The truth. God and being and doing what He needs.

I will admit I don't even like how Denver says what he says about church scholars on the PM topic. But it is necessary to get attention. I don't like how scholars respond in defense. It all can level out eventually. This is a serious thing that needs understood at last. It has caused so much chaos since the seed of cain first lived it. Especially among the LDS. Simply opening the mind and the heart and deeply analyzing it all, and expecting the Lord's impressions or words to the mortal mind, both can reveal the truth to us now. Give us the proper conclusions and understandings. Simply putting yourself in the shoes of a humble, meek wife being taught she needs to accept and live it, despite everything within her telling her she cannot accept it, imagining how her heart is broken within for doing so, should be enough. How can anyone ever be used to redeem Zion if they fail to clearly see all the many ways that have destroyed it from remaining or being restored in times past? How can we ever see eye to eye without doing the work to reason it out to get there? We must clearly see all the failures of the past, so that the risk of failure this time around is minimized as much as possible.

So many things in history. So many errors. Surely when God puts His spirit in men/women, if they are meek and humble and open like a child to accept truth, God can show all the many ways error and failure creeps in to destroy. In families, relationships, organizations, Zion prep group, etc.

This is one of the greatest errors in Mormonism. It opened the window to greater errors. Our history is ugly. It was wrong. It deserves apologies given to the world. Not defended or ignored or continued. We need to defend Joseph Smith's legacy, to challenge the Tanners and other critics, not keep giving them reason to keep pointing their fingers.

Plural marriage was reluctantly allowed for rare situations, in times of old, as stated in different revelations that are found in the first part of D&C 132. But it is not what is required for exaltation. It is not the original intent. Not the way of eternity. 1 wife, sealed with 1 husband, is. D&C says A wife, A wife in 132... a sealed wife is required. The equal ying/yang to completion. Equal, fair, complete. That is the Image of God. The alterations in D&C132 by Brigham in the1852 D&C addition, about a wife being "destroyed" somehow, if her husband teaches her all about polygamy and she still rejects it... is not valid scripture. It is unrighteous dominion and manipulation to control women. Emma was an amazing woman. She was not what Brigham tried to portray her as. She was one of the Elect then and she is now, with her husband. No one should speak evil of the elect of God, male or female.

The Church lost the seals, the sealing power that can continue Father to son, at the death of Joseph and Hyrum, lost there. That was allowed. Joseph went in knowing what would occur. Their failure for Zion and to the Lord, and probably some of his own, broke his heart. That is the reason for his tears with hands to his face. He was tired of false accusations and friends turning against him. So much was lost there. And failure and false assumptions and pride has been our problem ever since. Not to mention the adultery, murder and lies the BoM clearly teaches the readers of the book in the last days to avoid and would end up doing. Our org is the only that could be polluting the Holy Church of God in the last days. God gave the adopted seed of Joseph, the modern church, an opportunity to listen and repent and return since Nauvoo. The train continued onward on its own course.

Arms of flesh cast out the righteous from among us. So displaced from the hearing the truth and the message that Christ Himself wanted them to hear and accept. To the point of also losing God honoring aaronic priesthood and ordinances in the church.

I don't like any of it. I loved my days in the church. It was part of my identity. But the error is growing and continuing. It's plain to see for those that see and hear. Repentance is ignored and those sharing the message are given the finger of scorn, when they deserved a listening ear and care. They deserved your arms of compassion.

I once thought like you Brian. I researched for so many years. I read your stuff and that of many other historians. My wife (now ex thanks to church history actually) thought I was crazy for being so consumed in our own history. I was. It was that serious to me. I thought I had our strange history all figured out. But it only became worse the more I researched and prayed for answers. It boggles my mind that so many stalwart members could write up those affidavits about what they tried to show Joseph was up to, but they were under priestly pressure to do so. And in Mormonism, if you don't follow your leader, you are considered apostate and worthy of the finger of scorn and shunning. God wanted the USA to force the mormon ways of polygamy from them. He did not want Taylor setting apart secret priesthood leaders to continue plural marriages like fundies claim. Or Woodruff secretly keeping some leaders in Mexico continuing plural marriages even after the manifesto stunt. Not only was plural marriage being lived wrong in the polyg days of the church, it was lived without any man, including Brigham, having any higher authority or allowance from God to do so, which equates to unsanctioned polygamy or worse.

The errors are clear to me. They can become such for anyone. Yes, we need that discernment... without all the judgement and emotional responding.

Pres Benson gave talks to turn to Love the BoM to come out from under condemnation. Nibley and so many others tried to wake the church up to see error and analyze ourselves. Zion was lost. The power to redeem it was lost. It never came back since. The opportunity to come out from it was granted for a time. God did try to wake up the church with good servants within. He tried to clean things up with the force of the USA government before that. So many blindly assume all is well. Pacified. They like the social structure. They want what they want. While the truth, and the messengers trying to share it, are ignored or labeled and discarded. God chose a regular dude, a regular tho stalwart member among us with actual 40 yrs of prep by Angels, and 15 or so years of prep by the Lord Himself to continue the failed restoration, only after continued failure and ignoring of messengers within before him. The Lord obviously knew what the outcome would be when he sends a lowly member, with His message instead of those who sit in high seats. So he prepped a man for 40+ yrs, and that man not even knowing what the Lord would eventually do with him. The Lord would take 40 yrs to prep the man, because he foresaw the response when restoration like experiences and claims began again among members, especially when those things are sorely lacking among GA's. Everything Denver wrote in his books to the LDS people, are exactly what we needed to hear and learn from. Our prized org failed the Lord long ago. And we need to understand and repent and return to how things were in Joseph's days, or like among the many in our scriptures. We need to turn to the ways of our Fathers and DO THEM. I so worry that like those who cast out the righteous in the BOM, makes those once righteous claiming people ripe for future destruction. The last days destructions are close. This continent is going to suffer and endure so much, as well as all others. I want to be found in Zion. Not in the wake of destruction coming. I want to see as many repentant LDS people there. We need to clearly see all the error and come out of it and avoid any more of it. We are imperfect people full of emotions and weaknesses. We need to always remain humble, seeking for truth and understanding, and the mercy and presence of the Lord in all ways possible.

The Lord is beginning the strange act of the Father. The final act for the ending of this cycle of time. It's strange, but similar to the same ways as done in scripture before. Those who know their scriptures will be open to it, simply because it was before. Those who care enough, will listen. They will search and study and spend serious knee time before God. I know it seems strange and is hard to hear. But hear it, see it, and hopefully we can end up in the Lord's coming Zion, seeing eye to eye then, at last.

American Indian Holiday Today

 Today is a great holiday.

It's time for the ephraimite gentile immigrants, and even the seed of American Indian fore-fathers, to recognize the former prophecies and promises made to righteous fore-fathers of this land. The end times are near. Prophecies and promises made to righteous Fathers of old, in this land and of eastern countries, are happening and great but also dreadful things are coming to this land and all others. It's time for the righteous among all full and mixed blood American Indians, along with the help from true Christian gentile (to this land, but still the seed of older Fathers like Abraham) brothers to repent, awaken and arise. Avoid the fighting and pointing fingers as the world is doing. Causing division and contention and fear and anger. We need to connect with our God. We need to do that which He already promised will come about. The righteous will hear the truth and feel the Spirit of God burn within them when they do.
There is one Father above, over us all. He has a Son. Some of you and your ancestors refer to them as the Great Spirit, or the spirit of nature, etc. Prophets of old have walked this land as well as others. We need to return to their ways. Do what they did. Be true Christians like them. Not the ways of organized religions of today. They are all out of the way. All are corrupted by man. God needs the original ways restored. Examine the movement. See what God and His Son is already doing, with mankind once again, in preparation for Zion and the end times prepatory for the Second Coming. God has worked directly with men of old, He surely must needs do the same in the most important wrap up events of creation. For those who hear and see, who feel within to investigate more:

"I give unto men weaknesses, that they might become strengths unto them"

 Many with weaknesses, fail to realize the co-existing opposing strengths, and even strengths that can come from having a weakness. Those with emotional weaknesses sometimes see things most take for granted or cognitively unaware of. A deep questioning and pondering mind, see's that which others fail to contemplate deeply enough. For others, greater things may remain superficial, un-serious, un-understood. If one cannot see/behold/understand their own weaknesses, and that strengths that attend them, how can one understand/behold greater truths? How can one help and support and be there for others in their weaknesses? It's the reason those things are disclosed in scripture... about the Lord making weaknesses to become strengths. He uses them to prepare and exalt us. See them. Be grateful for the positive things that come with them. They keep men humble and always questioning and searching and pondering deeply. Be thankful for them to a point, but also let the Lord make weaknesses strong unto us. Let the Lord help us overcome them in time, or at least use them for strong purposes - the work and glory of Father and Son.

If the Lord tells you, that you are His son, it has special and specific meaning. It is above that of a servant, and co-exists with that after. He is an Eternal Father forever to such souls. Some in the BOM declared Jesus is the very Eternal Father, because He became such... to them individually. It's the ultimate goal and reason we come here to receive and then maintain. To join His eternal family via a certain spiritual adoption. Few behold that necessity, let alone receive the designation, even then it's often to their own surprise and following doubts of hearing it, even when more than one voice may declare it. Despite it being hinted to or explained in scripture and repetitious LDS ordinances. And many who hear such, have a hard time maintaining it, and some can still end up losing it (in the current mortality at least) thanks to the buffetings of fear and seeds of doubt that satan uses to prevent that persons progression and growth and maintenance of that station with God. The 2nd necessity for exaltation or a fulness of the former, is to have an eternal companion sealed and the relationship to be such that it endures. This is required. Women must align themselves with, or encourage her partner to obtain such, so both progress as one. All must arise to such things in this life, or be damned (no not to hell hopefully, but stopped from progression - on pause for a time). And when such things are attained to, the greater work is getting thru al the tests and trials and buffetings that will be there to throw you off the path you are in deed on. Weaknesses can be for our good. Strengths can sometimes lead to our downfall. Be meek in both.
Ether12:27 And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.

Ether 12:37: And because thou hast seen thy weakness thou shalt be made strong, even unto the sitting down in the place which I have prepared in the mansions of my Father.

2 Cor 1:43 - "And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing, I implored the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you; for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then am I strong."
-His grace is sufficient for us, His strength can make us perfect like Him, thanks to our weakness that can propel/assist us there. Weaknesses are exactly what the Lord needs to make us perfect through His strength - His grace or power and authority and extreme empathetic/loving capability to do so. People have them in one way or another, all on differing levels at that. None are alone. All struggle. All have some weaknesses. We are here to experience them and get through them best we can, while becoming humble, understanding truth

Ether 5:5 - And when I had said this, the Lord spake unto me, saying, Fools mock, but they shall mourn. And my grace is sufficient for the meek, that they shall take no advantage of your weakness. And if men come unto me, I will shew unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness, that they may be humble. And my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them. Behold, I will shew unto the gentiles their weakness. And I will shew unto them that faith, hope, and charity bringeth unto me, the fountain of all righteousness. -
"In the quiet service for others, when our minds finally come to rest on the only one who can save us, we can find that peace where the Lord comes to us and speaks words of comfort. He is real. He exists, and He comforts those who come to Him offering a broken heart and contrite spirit, and to none other."
2 Cor 1:2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

Idolatry in Mormonism

A reply I made in an LDS group today to a member commenting that another LDS member should not be reading the BoM and liken to our day, unless some General "Authority" first teaches it:
No offense, but what kind of mindless people are we to be with this kind of idea? YOU and WE are supposed to get the gifts of the spirit. ONE of them is the gift of discernment. Another is to even prophecy. Moses: "Would to God that all the Lords people were prophets!" Christ taught to search, seek, ask, knock. Anyone, who speaks as moved upon by God (spirit) to do so, those words are accountable as valid as scripture. No matter who says it.

The BoM is a warning to the latter day failure of the church that brought it about. We are the ones Mormon was talking to. We have and read the book! It is a warning that God will wipe this land clean if the people within this land allow similar corruption as occurred in the past, and contains promises to restore Zion to descendants of previous righteous prophets once they and we, some of the gentiles who actually get the fulness (something the church never got since Nauvoo failure), repent and get to a point of true religion. What is that? That every person, regardless of some church title, has equal responsibility and duty before God and others, to equally prophecy, discern, preach and teach and invite, as much as some elected GA that so many want to pin all of their own duties and responsibilities upon. You want true Mormonism? This was it! Depending on a middle man, is nothing but IDOLATRY. The scriptures warn against this. True and real prophets warn against this. True prophets teach you to go and do what they do, like Moses and Joseph Smith. They don't pridefully and selfishly teach that they will usurp your individual duties to connect with God, cripple you from doing what you need for exaltation, and teach that they will be your middle man to tell you all you need to learn and know. Real prophets don't get in the way of your own connection with the Godhead! Scriptures prophecy that in the last days even young people will prophecy. GA's aren't young, are they. If we are to Zion, we need to do it with truth and proper mindset. How can we ever see eye to eye, if each of us are not getting revelation and inspiration and explanations and teachings from the Lord? If we are all connected with the same source, how amazing that would be. Search the scriptures. Understand what the modified and amended Endowment Ritual still teaches us to go and do! Read Joseph Smiths writings in the WJS. These warnings and truths are there.
Even BY made many errors and led astray in many ways. He literally and spiritually brought this church into the "wilderness". But he taught truth (likely remembering things Joseph taught in these cases) when he stated that none of us should pin our own duties upon a pres of the church or anyone else:

BY: Do not be deceived, any of you; if you are deceived, it is because you deceive yourselves. You may know whether you are led right or wrong, as well as you know the way home . . . What a pity it would be if we were led by one man to utter destruction! Are you afraid of this? I am more afraid that this people have so much confidence in their leaders that they will not inquire for themselves of God whether they are led by Him. I am fearful they settle down in a state of blind self-security, trusting their eternal destiny in the hands of their leaders with a reckless confidence that in itself would thwart the purposes of God in their salvation, and weaken that influence they could give to their leaders, did they know for themselves, by the revelations of Jesus, that they are led in the right way... Let all persons be fervent in prayer, until they know the things of God for themselves and become certain that they are walking in the path that leads to everlasting life.

George Q Cannon:
It is the design of the Lord to develop within every man and woman the principle of knowledge, that all may know for themselves. He has poured out His holy spirit upon all of us, and not upon President Young nor upon bro. Joseph alone. The Lord designs that the principle of knowledge shall be developed in every heart, that all may stand before Him . . . doing understandingly what He requires of them, not depending upon nor being blindly led by their priests or leaders, as is the universal custom, and one of the most fruitful sources of evil to the people on the face of the earth. God intends to break down this order of things, and to develop in the bosom of every human being who will be obedient to the gospel and the principles of truth and righteousness, that knowledge which will enable them to perform understandingly all the labors and duties he requires of them . . . We must all learn to depend upon God and upon Him alone. Why, the very man upon whom we think we can rely with unbounded confidence, and trust with all we possess, may disappoint us sometimes, but trust in God and He never fails.

Charles Penrose:
Our testimony does not depend upon Joseph Smith; it does not depend upon Brigham Young; it does not depend upon John Taylor, or upon the council of the Twelve Apostles, which is now the presiding quorum in the Church. I pin my faith to no man’s sleeve; I am a believer in the Scripture which says, “Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm.

Though these 3 men lived in times after a real prophet was taken from the church in 1844, what they said here was truth.

No man should be placed between you and God. WE have a duty to connect with the Lord Himself, as shown in the temple and shown by example in every book of scripture we have. It is what Joseph Smith was trying to get into the heads of the church members. What Moses was trying to get his people to go and do. What Nephi meant when he tried to warn US, the readers in the last days, to avoid - wrongly relying on arms of flesh.

The Lord is the one to look to, connect with, correspond with. Not another man. The Lord has all the power and authority to bestow. Go to Him, because He is always the way, and men are fallible so it's proper to do so just in case. This is serious stuff.

LDS Condemnation Video

See also: and use the search feature. God used Denver to help the LDS Repent. A true messenger. He is also the "Spirit of Elijah" type Servant that God is using to redeem Zion for the last time. Including a temple. Gathering the true Christian remnant from all remnants. Being used to prepare for and wrap up the end the times of the Gentiles, the Age of Pisces, to usher in the Age of Peace, that of Aquarius, which includes the Second Coming of our Lord. A Lord, who is indeed a Father unto me. A Father unto all those who seek righteousness and truth and to help the Lord in His work... to bring to pass the Eternal Life of all, and who begin to enter into His presence, and obtain His word in reality. All can obtain. All can arise.

Hear the words of this servant. His teachings are true. His message is from God. His words about the failures of the LDS are exactly what we needed to hear. Exactly what other organizations need to also understand about the LDS Mormon history. The LDS were intended to do great things in the 1800's, and have gone on thinking all is well, when the opposite is true. The Book of Mormon, is a real scriptural history of prophets who lived in this land of North America.

Response to a BYU Honor Code Change

LDS further pollute this land... Written April 6, 2020:
The spirit leads me to say, in response to such things:
All those who do such, all those who support those who do such, destroy My original intent of my children entering into wholesome family structures that consist of a male and a female. They fight against the truth, and Me, and My Father, and all the Gods who have gone before. They fight against and alter divine pattern. Anything that detracts from necessary divine marital and familial structure, negatively affects the eternal progression of My people. It has and always will be a requirement for a male and female bond for progression into my Kingdom. The Image of God, is male and female united. All other relationship structures, especially this, destroy My original intent for all people. It damns or limits their individual progression. This especially should have been avoided among the former house of My people in this land. The people I had began My last times work with centuries ago. The Spirit, My Spirit of truth, which is my word, is being lost among all people in these last times. Hearts are hard, their light grows dim, and they hear and see not the truth. There are no mortal reasonings, excuses, mental insecurities or emotional disorders, or justifications that can alter the divine structure that was established in the beginning with Adam and Eve, and their divinely bearing children together. That was to be the example unto all who exist here. That which was required even before the creation of this mortal cycle. Mortals concoct all kinds of reasons to believe what they want to believe, in order to go and do what they want to go and do. Your choices and feelings depend on your thoughts you create and dwell upon. You alone choose who you are ultimately attracted to. Choose you this day to hear My word and choose well to abide in it. And your feelings and choices and wholesome relationships or marital structures will follow. Do not destroy that divine family example which I preserved in sacred text to be handed down over the ages. That which is still taught to be necessary in LDS temple rituals. Seek your calling and elections and for them to be sure. If people were having these things, they would have My word within them and need not read them from another. Seek to enter originally intended, divine relationships that can endure for time and in eternity. These very things are required of all My people to have happiness and progression in their lives, and to enter into My glory hereafter, worlds without end. Do not actively engage in or support the contrary examples shown by others, or fail to teach your children the proper example when the contrary examples of others are made known. Do not destroy the very things which exalts My people, which is My work and My glory.

Lusts of the Flesh

Be sure to read up on the chemistry of lust, attraction and attachment:
I use to think that men were more stimulated by sexy appearances/pics. Research shows I was wrong. The quote below is unsettling and brings up a plethora of questions in my mind... but explains another reason women like to post sexy or seductive photos all over media (why I can't stand instagram)... they are getting attention from men and women... by giving dopamine hits to both. Dopamine is addictive... it makes you want more of whatever it was that gives you the hit = addiction. Sexy photos gets both to want more of your photos. It causes both sexes to want more exposure of skin and less and less clothing for greater doses, to fulfill the addiction. It gets people coming back for more, wanting stronger hits with quantity and stonger stimulation/doses.

"study also found that men’s brains responded more strongly to nude female images, but women’s brains responded with equal intensity to nude males and females."

Apparently women bodies and nudity excite both men and women. I still try to wrap my mind around why that is, and makes me worried that women are naturally bisexual or something.

Lust= wanting something so badly and doing things to get it. Thoughts of lust, lead to other things. Must think it, then people do the action. Like coveting leads to theft or scheming to get what is coveted or deeply wanted. Some people lust after materialism, or power and get their chemical hits that way too.

Lust, in the way of wanting to do something to fulfill sexual gratification, is taught in scripture to be avoided (except and unless in the proper situation with a spouse). Kissing and cuddling is nice and produces dopamine and good bonding attraction chemicals... but careful when it's nearing or bordering the excretion of testosterone and estrogen, which makes you want more. The kiss of affection or the cuddling in attachment/bonding, can lead to more. After marriage, cross that line as you both wish. Before, use extreme caution and self control.

As a single guy, I am definately attracted to beautiful women, and searching for love is difficult in our modern times, because you have to avoid the seductive manipulative immorally corrupt nonsense our world is full of. You have to work hard to avoid getting sucked into the dopamine hits that naturally come from those ladies posting in their profiles the bikini pics or seductive/sexy poses to attract (or manipulate/seduce) attention. Being single is lonely. Especially after being married for a long time. Difficult as it is. You miss attachment/bonding, attraction and even romantic ok to have lustful connection formerly had in the past with a spouse. You have to work hard to avoid having anything more than attraction or attachment chemicals flowing. If you are human, it is hard.

Immorality is discussed in scripture. It's part of being virtuous. God does expect true Christian types to adhere to modesty in their dress, and avoiding causing problems in an already morally corrupt world. God wants a set apart people. People to come out from Babylon or the corrupt ways of the world and be His Covenant people. If a woman or man, is posting too much skin in their social media or dating profiles, is it not true that you are adding to a corrupt societal problem? If you dress sexy, act seductive, or post sexually enticing pics, post a little a alot of cleavage, hike that skirt higher, post those bikini pics in places not related to swimming activity, show off that 6-pack to the ladies, or whatever... are you not adding to the problem? If most people are normal humans or weak and easily excited in our day, surely you cannot think that it is only their fault for thinking such things. If science proves that both men and women are naturally affected with chemicals in the mind when seeing such things... are not the men or women wearing and posting such things, or acting in seductive ways, causing others or at least making it possible for them to do so, to lust after them? Causing them to seek greater mind chemical hits? Causing addiction and seeking of other harmful things? Not just the luster is guilty, but the lustee (is that a word?) can be held accountable for provoking/causing the lust in the first place. Christ taught to avoid any appearance of evil, surely this should be considered one of them.

Some want to defend their stubbornness of wanting to do what they want. Say they want to do and wear what they want and it's the fault of the luster. Even use anger and insults and accusations and fault finding against one who writes or speaks against their ideas. Label others as religious fanatics for bringing it up. Claiming that they are not at fault. But it's not true. Science proves. Common sense and reasonable and logical pondering should be enough to conclude whats right in society.

And what really gets me is all those women who are engaged or married or with a committed boyfriend, continuing to post sexy photos like they are still searching for someone else... and in some cases probably are. Married women are acting like the single ones. Some don't even realize the worldy error they find themselves in and are past feeling to such things. Without remorse/care/awareness/empathy/virtue.

Lust, backed by dopamine hits and other feel good chemicals... can lead to error. Lusting or wanting to fulfill sexual gratification, whether you do it or provoke it, can lead to error such as porn, fornication, cheating, adultery, even abortion and murder. It can lead to destruction of individuals, relationships, marriages and families and even entire nations of people. Who wants to support that? When people lust after worldy things, or the opposite sex when they are not supposed to... they are "whoring" after the things of the world. Anything that removes us from the presence of God in our lives, is fornication of heart away from God. We are removing our hearts from God. A married woman, who cheats, does not fornicate, but commits adultery. But she can fornicate her heart away from her husband and go after enticements of men or get into seducing others while married. Bible doesn't talk much about fornication in regards to relations before marriage, but it's obvious to avoid to prevent std's, unwanted pregnancies. Abortion is the number one cause of death in the USA and around the world now. Which is nothing ore than a way to cover the sexual immorality and unvirtuous societies. And yes, lust, can lead all up to murder or crime to get what you want. You want something bad enough, some will go for it. They will steal what is not theirs to have. They will scheme and deceive. Remember Delilah/Sampson, David/Bathseeba, etc. All the crimes of passion we see filling our news.

Who wants to be held liable and accountable for causing more problems in our immoral world? A world ripe for destruction in the last days? Do you want to provoke or do it? Adding to an out of control problem?

God wants a set apart people. People fight other faiths, claiming to be the true-Christians, while doing un-Christian things. God wants a people filled with intelligence and understanding. Filled with His spirit/light to understand how is the best way to live and get along in society. The whys. God wants us to come out from the ways of the world. To come out of Babylon and no longer partakers of their sins. He does want Emotionally stable and secure people. In control of their passions and emotions. Examples to the world.

Everything we do, matters. What we think. What we say. What we do especially. Yes, even what we wear and post on social media. If you are single, attract others with your goodness and amazing personality and spirituality, and your decent attractive photos.

Is there also another reason people do such things? Like in the world of psychology, a deeply rooted reason why some are posting seductive/sexy pics or wearing such in public? Yes. They vainly portray their beauty or sexyness, to cover up personality/mood/emotional problems within. They attract (and sometimes manipulate and seduce) in other ways, to make up for a lack in others. The unstable and insecure do those things. So be careful and informed in those things as well.

Love God. Love others. Love ourselves. Healthy balance in all.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast;  is not arrogant or rude. She does not insist on her own way; is not irritable or resentful; He does not rejoice over evil deeds, but rejoices with the truth. Love carries all things, creates all things, expects all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for the prophecies, they will pass; As for tongues, they will cease; As for knowledge, it will disappear.

Galatians 5: 19-21
 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Mark 7: 20-23
 And he said: “What comes out of a person is what contaminates him.

All these bad things come from within and contaminate a person. "

 Therefore what is in you dies: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire and greed, which is idolatry.

 I am afraid that when I return, my God will humble me before you, and I will have to cry for many of those who sinned before and have not repented of the impurity, sexual immorality and sensuality they have practiced.

 Because certain people have gone unnoticed to those who long ago were designated for this condemnation, impious people, who pervert the grace of our God in sensuality and deny our only Teacher and Lord, Jesus Christ.
