The highest form of worshipping God in the LDS church is when we follow the leaders of the church even when it does not comport with the dictates of our own conscience, even when it contradicts the dictates of our own conscience, following the leaders of the church regardless of the fact of what they say and teach violates the dictates of our conscience is the highest form of worship.
I never, ever, in my life imagined I would get to a point to where I say what I am about to say. Had you told me I would say this with conviction just even 4 years ago, I would have been completely unsympathetic to you claiming this. If it had been prophesied I would say this I would have called you a false prophet, and I would have said so in the name of the Lord.
If Mormonism has really taught what is quoted above then Mormonism is a cult.
My conscience, based on Mormon doctrine itself is that I am an eternal intelligence
. NOTE the word INTELLIGENCE, meaning able to discriminate true from false, meaning able to learn, think, study, weigh evidence, and everything else intelligence implies. It means make choices based on actual and real KNOWLEDGE gained. It means having capability to discern, grasp, and understand, to become enlightened, to test and find false from true, fake from actual. To go AGAINST that based on what someone else says, deliberately turning off my critical thinking is immoral. It is dividing myself against myself. It is stupid. I have literally NO REASON to forego my own conscience since it is immortal and has existed in eternity, meaning it already has an eternity of knowledge, capability, and subconscious as well as conscious knowledge of what to do in any given circumstance. There is literally no reason
for personal treason like is being asked. It makes no sense, it contradicts what everyone of us actually are in reality, and it is an insult to presume I don't know as well as what someone else tells me and I should simply stop using my critical faculties to simply follow someone else's claims without nary a word or thought of difference.
I will say in as gentle a way as possible, assuming the Mormon doctrine of ETERNAL intelligence that I am to the aforesaid above saying GO TO HELL. And I assure you this IS gentle compared to what they have to hear from all peoples, races, and conscience sentient beings who values personal freedom, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, justice, and being at peace with your own conscience. I submit my will to GOD ALONE. Your doctrine be damned. Here I stand on my own personal knowledge, love and faith in God. I need no organization to stand between me and my maker imagining that obeying them is equivalent to obeying God. I will let God him/herself tell me otherwise.
Is Midgely serious? Peterson's blog is a patty-cake, surface only, all too frequently plagiarized bit of ephemeral nonsense. Why would anyone suppose avatars must be real? Midgley has lost his tiny little mind. Maybe he can go over to never-neverland and harass Peter Pan for not really knowing how to fly. -Lemmie-
