“Live Not By Lies”*

For those who have recently watched the documentary, “What is a Woman?,”1 and thereafter observed the web and media frenzy, fanaticism, and coercive fallout, it should be obvious how far we have descended into a tyranny of  “make-believe”; thus the question: How much are we each going to participate in sustaining that tyranny? Are we, in alleged sympathy / empathy2 or fear, going to help normalize and parrot the fictions that, at core, mock the creation and particularities of male and female?3 (especially the female?)

Surely we should not be surprised that an all-encompassing tyranny of fiction should be the prevailing character of these end-times? We may never have imagined the various directions that the pretenses would take, but have we not been warned?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?4
Most of us have (so far) survived the myriad deceptions of the COVID narrative, but now, an even more transparent narrative of trans-supremacy is taking center-stage where all people must affirm the new-genders narrative or be targeted for bullying, phobic-labelling, or character destruction, in déjà vu of other tyrannies as described by Solzhenitsyn:
The permanent lie becomes the only safe form of existence, in the same way as betrayal. Every wag of the tongue can be overheard by someone, every facial expression observed by someone. Therefore every word, if it does not have to be a direct lie, is nonetheless obliged not to contradict the general, common lie. There exists a collection of ready-made phrases, of labels, a selection of ready-made lies. And not one single speech nor one single essay or article nor one single book— be it scientific, journalistic, critical, or “literary,” so-called— can exist without the use of these primary clichés. In the most scientific of texts it is required that someone’s false authority or false priority be upheld somewhere, and that someone be cursed for telling the truth; without this lie even an academic work cannot see the light of day. And what can be said about those shrill meetings and trashy lunch-break gatherings where you are compelled to vote against your own opinion, to pretend to be glad over what distresses you?5
The choice live by lies or “live not by lies” is being forced upon more and more of us with each passing day. Make one mis-speak against the supreme narrative and the browbeating, bullying  begins. But considering that Satan has been called “a liar from the beginning” and the “father of lies” (whose agenda is to deceive and destroy the world6) should we not be exceedingly vigilant in discerning and standing for truth and against pretense; refusing to be groomed into accepting fantasy claims that biological men are women with the capacity to give birth? It seems we are progressing from one mass-psychosis event to another, as so graphically described here.7

Yes, I believe struggling dysphorics (and their advocates) must be free to voice their feelings and beliefs, but they must not be affirmed in believing they have a right to compel others to believe or advocate for their beliefs, feelings, or claims. As to so-called professionals advocating for and profiting from (irreversible), surgical intervention for dysphoric minors, perhaps they can be compelled to endure awareness training sessions (in similitude of those compulsory sensitivity ones) in order to discern their placement on the mass-formation psychosis spectrum, as well as to learn the difference between science and pscience.8

To bolster and understand the need for courage and commitment to truth and reality, please listen to this truth-filled podcast. Let us choose to “live not by lies.” The consequence for choosing otherwise leads to destruction.9 Let us each be a brake against a deepening mass-formation psychosis.

2. Sympathy and empathy do not require others to affirm life choices that fly in the face of history, science, experience, and observation. Compassion does not require converting fictions into facts because of feelings. Most people, in many places, are free to choose their dress and social presentation in order to express their feelings, but the notion that affirmation and praise of such choices is mandatory resides at the end of the power-abuse spectrum. We have come to this point in history after decades of social engineering and power abuse designed to foster confusion, dysphoria,  and anxiety. Dysphoria of every kind is unfortunate.
3. If some want to argue the evolution of male / female, there is yet no evidence in millennia of history of an XY human having the capacity to give birth; nor is such even remotely on the horizon.. Such is gaslighting at its finest and most extreme. (https://dejavu-times.blogspot.com/2019/07/gaslighting-way-of-wo.html)

   19 And gave unto them commandments that they should love and serve him, the only living and true God, and that he should be the only being whom they should worship.
   20 But by the transgression of these holy laws man became sensual and devilish, and became fallen man.

   27 So the Gods went down to organize man in their own image, in the image of the Gods to form they him, male and female to form they them.
   28 And the Gods said: We will bless them. And the Gods said: We will cause them to be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and to have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

6. New Testament | John 8:44
   44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Pearl of Great Price | Moses 4:6

Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 2:17-18

Book of Mormon | Ether 8:25
   25 For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning.
Doctrine and Covenants | Section 123:7
   7 It is an imperative duty that we owe to God, to angels, with whom we shall be brought to stand, and also to ourselves, to our wives and children, who have been made to bow down with grief, sorrow, and care, under the most damning hand of murder, tyranny, and oppression, supported and urged on and upheld by the influence of that spirit which hath so strongly riveted the creeds of the fathers, who have inherited lies, upon the hearts of the children, and filled the world with confusion, and has been growing stronger and stronger, and is now the very mainspring of all corruption, and the whole earth groans under the weight of its iniquity.
Pearl of Great Price | Moses 4:3-4
   3 Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled against me, and sought to destroy the agency of man, which I, the Lord God, had given him, and also, that I should give unto him mine own power; by the power of mine Only Begotten, I caused that he should be cast down;
   4 And he became Satan, yea, even the devil, the father of all lies, to deceive and to blind men, and to lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken unto my voice.
Book of Mormon | Alma 5:25
   25 I say unto you, Nay; except ye make our Creator a liar from the beginning, or suppose that he is a liar from the beginning, ye cannot suppose that such can have place in the kingdom of heaven; but they shall be cast out for they are the children of the kingdom of the devil.
Doctrine and Covenants | Section 93:24-25
   24 And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;

8. Pscience is the corrupted offshoot of honorable Science. It is the inevitable consequence of man's obsessive pursuit and protection of power, gain, glory, and domination. Pscience is pseudo, psychopathic, propagandizing, plagiarizing, psy-opic, and above all, profit-obsessed, and profit-driven. This obsessive pursuit and protection by people without conscience is often enabled by naïve, trusting, or fear-filled acolytes and servitors. Pscience is a one-faith, one-dogma, heretic-fearing, self-deceiving, other-censoring system. The 21st Century question is: What are we now enabling or supporting? science or pscience?
9. Old Testament | Psalms 101:7
   7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
Old Testament | Proverbs 19:5, also 9
   5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
Old Testament | Proverbs 29:12
   12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.
Old Testament | Isaiah 28:15-17
   15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
   16 ¶ Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
   17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
Old Testament | Isaiah 59:4
   4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
Old Testament | Jeremiah 9:3-5
   3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.
   4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.
   5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.

Staying Alert to the Source of “Great Signs and Wonders”*?

In recent days, we have witnessed a reversal of the 1973 Federal co-option of alleged state power.1 Many seem to view the SCOTUS decision as a great sign that the United States is re-affirming its former values. Some consider it an almost unbelievable wonder that in this current climate of iniquity and escalating abuse of children and power, that SCOTUS would make such a “course-correction.” But are we being too naïve about agendas? — about the appearance of things? We already see how this has created another acrimonious division, inflaming those who believe they have been stripped of a long-standing, federally-guaranteed right. So, being the skeptic that I am, I cannot help but wonder if time will soon reveal that this seeming “light”2 in a dark landscape is really artificial. What is the real inspiration for this reversal? What is its real purpose? I do not know, except that the prevailing iniquity and secret combinations at the highest levels are so pervasive, it puts almost every action of the powers in doubt of legitimacy or good purpose.

Will this turn out to be in the nature of a Cain-like offering?
18 And Cain loved Satan more than God. And Satan commanded him, saying: Make an offering unto the Lord.
19 And in process of time it came to pass that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.3
Some have speculated that Cain's offering (fruit of the ground) was unacceptable as God required a sacrificial animal, but from Mosaic laws and temple endowment, both the first fruits of the field and the firstlings of the flock were commanded at varying times. Of course, Cain's fruit might not have been firstling or best, but the defining reason for the rejection of Cain's offering by God is probably answered in the words: “And Satan commanded [Cain], saying: Make an offering unto the Lord.”

Is this SCOTUS decision a genuine offering of repentance and return? Or should we also ask: In these last days of testing, trial, and rampant deception, what will the adversary of all Good not wrap in artificial light? How on guard must we be to discern what unfolds by the inspiration of God and what unfolds at the command of the enemy?

Time and Truth will eventually reveal motives and purposes, though, for the sake of those who sincerely seek the Good, God seems always able to bring Good out of bad if or when intentions by others are corrupted.

* JST New Testament | Matthew 24: 23-25
   23 For in those days, there shall also arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if possible, they shall deceive the very elect, who are the elect according to the covenant.
   24 Behold, I speak these things unto you for the elect’s sake.
   25 And you also shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled; for all I have told you must come to pass. But the end is not yet.
