Truth marches on:



patriotdepot.com/all-that-is-necessary-f...



people who did nothing are responsible as well; not for committing the wrong, but for failing to prevent it.  The man who stands by and watches as an old woman is robbed and beaten can say, "But I didn't do anything!"  And that's exactly why he has a share in the blame.  He did nothing.  Until we begin to take responsibility not only for not doing evil, but also for doing what is right, our country and society will prevail.  If we fail to stand against evil, we have no one to blame but ourselves when evil triumphs.  In the words of Plato, "The price of apathy is to be ruled by evil men."


 


"All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing."

"All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing."


Additionally, bad things can result when innocent sounding ideals are misapplied with passionate intensity.

36 And now, verily saith the Lord, that these things might be known among you, O inhabitants of the earth, I have sent forth mine angel flying through the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel, who hath appeared unto some and hath committed it unto man, who shall appear unto many that dwell on the earth.


37 And this gospel shall be preached unto every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.38 And the servants of God shall go forth, saying with a loud voice: Fear God and give glory to him, for the hour of his judgment is come;

Ynglings... Odin...  Saxland... Ephraim.  Treasures from The Book of Mormon.


HOW THE LORD DISCLOSED THE IDENTITY OF "EPHRAIM" AFTER 2,600 YEARS 


Treasures from the Book of Mormon, Volume One, by W. Cleon Skousen, PAGES 232- 234 


"When the Gospel was restored in modern times, we gained an additional insight into one of the most perplexing riddles of Bible history: "Whatever happened to the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel?" We are far from having the whole answer, but at least we have located two important segments of the Lost Tribes -- the Ephraimites in America and Europe and the people of Manasseh among the aborigines of America and the Pacific Islands. Since Isaiah 11:13-14 speaks of Ephraim and Judah combining together in the performing of a special work, it is particularly significant to have the Lord bring Ephraim out of hiding.


In America and Europe the restored Gospel acted as a magnet to draw out of the Gentile nations a remnant of Ephraim which had been scattered among them during a period of many centuries. These Ephraimites constituted the vast majority of the Church membership during the first 100 years of its existence."

Testimony from a US LDS Member stationed in Korea:


"I'm a Korean linguist for the U.S. Air Force. I've been stationed in Korea for 12 of the last 22 years. I served my mission in Sendai, Japan and then returned 


home to Idaho and married my wife Lauri.



I joined the Air Force in 1982 and was sent to the Defense Language Institute in Monterey California to learn Korean. 



I was then assigned to Osan Air Base and arrived in Korea in 1984. I am an Intelligence professional.



On December 14, 1985, my wife and I were privileged to attend the dedication of the Seoul Temple. 



President Gordon B. Hinckley who was a counselor in the First Presidency at the time, was to dedicate the Temple.



In his remarks before the dedicatory prayer, he made a comment that was so startling, that I committed it to memory. 



He said, "If you will use this Temple, you need not fear an invasion from the North."



What a great promise! I also remember the remark, because during my mission, I had the opportunity to work with Elder Kikuchi of the Seventy.


He was also at the dedication and afterwards as we were talking, he remarked how neat that promise was.



My family left Korea in 1986 and returned in 1988 for a second tour. We stayed that time until 1991.



In 1993, my family and I returned yet again to Korea and at that time, tensions were increasing over the possible North Korean development 


of nuclear weapons. In 1994, it actually appeared that we might go to war with North Korea over this issue. 



Even though I had heard a Prophet of the Lord declare we would be protected, I began to doubt the promise. 



I wondered if perhaps I had misunderstood president Hinckley 's words that day.



That summer, many of us were invited to Seoul to a training session with Elder Boyd K. Packer and Elder Henry B. Eyring.



The chapel in Shindang was filled with church leaders both Korean and American. Elder Eyring spoke first and then Elder Packer stood up to speak.



He let us know that "training" was not the only reason that he and Elder Eyring had come to Korea. 



He told us that President Hinckley was concerned for the safety of the saints in Korea.



He said the day before, President Packer and Elder Eyring had gone up to the Demilitarized Zone, the border between North and South Korea, and had performed a priesthood ordinance which placed guardian angels at that border. He told us that because of our faithfulness in attending the Temple, we would be protected. 



I don't know if I was more surprised to hear that there were actually guardian angels at the border, or that there was a priesthood ordinance to put them there. One Korean stake president, asked Elder Packer, "How long will they be there?" His answer was, "As long as they are needed, and you are faithful in your Temple attendance." Now I knew we were safe for I had heard the promise twice.



In 1996, President Hinckley came to Korea on his way to Hong Kong to dedicate the Temple there. He held a regional conference in Seoul which we attended. During his remarks at this conference, he made reference to the Temple promise, and said he was going to change it. He told us that we now needed to attend the temple faithfully, and also appreciate it. He told us that we were all being protected by the Lord because we had done as we were told. This was the third time I had heard the promise and the second time from President Hinckley's own mouth.



I know this promise is true. I have seen events happen in conjunction with my job, in which many times the experts have been confused as to why the North Koreans did not attack. I know it is because they cannot. As a member of the U.S. Air Force, part of my job is to help protect the Republic of South Korea from attack. I feel as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, I can do more to protect South Korea by attending the Temple. As long as the saints in Korea attend the Temple they are protected. 



I have been so blessed to not only witness the Prophet of the Lord proclaim this great promise, but also have been here to see the fulfillment of those words."

 Sariah... a noble name from  LDS Scriptures: 


www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/5.6?lan...


1 Nephi 5:6

  • Book of Mormon

And after this manner of language did my father, Lehi, comfort my mother, Sariah, concerning us, while we journeyed in the wilderness up to the land of Jerusalem, to obtain the record of the Jews. 


1 Nephi 5:1

  • Book of Mormon

And it came to pass that after we had come down into the wilderness unto our father, behold, he was filled with joy, and also my mother, Sariah, was exceedingly glad, for she truly had mourned because of us. 


1 Nephi 2:5

  • Book of Mormon

And he came down by the borders near the shore of the Red Sea; and he traveled in the wilderness in the borders which are nearer the Red Sea; and he did travel in the wilderness with his family, which consisted of my mother, Sariah, and my elder brothers, who were Laman, Lemuel, and Sam. 


Sariah

"In 1843, just 13 years after the Church's organization, Church President Joseph Smith called two men to preach in Russia. This assignment was canceled after the martyrdom of Joseph Smith in 1844. In 1895, a native of Sweden was sent to St. Petersburg, where he baptized the Johan M. Lindelof family. The family was occasionally visited by Church leaders in the early 1900s. In 1959, Ezra Taft Benson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, simultaneously serving as United States Secretary of Agriculture, visited the Central Baptist Church in Moscow and preached to an attentive congregation.In September 1989, Church leaders authorized a United States Embassy worker in Russia to begin holding group meetings in his apartment. Four months later, in January 1990, missionaries arrived in Leningrad. The first convert they baptized also became the first full-time missionary from Russia, who served in the Utah Ogden Mission. In February 1990, a congregation was organized in Vyborg. By mid-summer 1990, the Leningrad congregation, created in December 1989, had 100 members, and the Vyborg congregation had 25 members. In September, the St. Petersburg congregation was recognized by the government and in October a religious freedom law was passed. With membership in Russia at 750 in February 1992, two other Russian missions were organized.In June 1991, the world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir received publicity "beyond its wildest expectations" as it performed in the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow and in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg). The choir recorded songs later broadcast to a potential audience of 339 million. In May 1991, the Church was officially recognised by Russia."
