“A wise person once said that people see what they want to see. That seems to be especially true in religion! Many of them just can’t resist trying to shine brighter than the rest; even if the lights aren’t even on. Live and learn, and don’t repeat the BS, right?”
This blog is a continuance of my previous blog, “Pt 33: Incest in my immediate family tree.”
It’s said, “When you turn on the light, all the cockroaches scatter.” In “blogging my book,” my intent is to shine a light on roaches in the crevices that have found cover far too long.
The Scriptures say, “Know the truth and the truth shall set ye free.” I’m revealing some truths many won’t; and hoping to bring awareness, and minimize lies and lore –– as long as it doesn’t hurt living family members, friends, and more.
I’m not looking to post scandal to entertain Looky-Lue’s and gossip-mongers; only to inform inquiring minds that want to know—keeping in mind that many families have, at their core, closet skeletons — their whore mongers by the score.
That said, I know plenty of scandal I haven’t begun to unravel nor reveal … probably never will … though my blog is a reality show in and of itself, I’m sure.
What I’ve already revealed is a room-clearer worthy of a Stephen King Sci-Fi “Unreality” show!
With this in mind, I hope visitors to my blog “Pt 33” had a chance to read the blog that preceded it; otherwise, they might have missed major parts of the Stephany-Spencer Reality show; points I’m trying to present.
Also, if the Pre and Post-blogs of “Pt 33” were missed, my dear readers could possibly end up misinformed, misled, or uninformed on many a thing I’ve said! Don’t believe me? Go ask Stephen King!
Moving on, now: Mom said one of her father Dayer’s favorite quotes was, “He who would learn, let him teach.”
I say: They who would learn, let them read, listen to audiobooks, go to “The University of YouTube”… and read my blog. LOL! 🙂
In that vein, let’s continue where we left off in blog “Pt 34-A” where Mother said, “My father Dayer LeBaron’s Great-grandfather Benjamin F. Johnson visited him after he had died and passed on to him the priesthood scepter of power — the mantle Joseph Smith passed down to him, BFJ, before he died.
“He told my father he was to do a GREAT work in the world to prepare the way for one of his sons to be “the one mighty and strong” /OM&S who would then prepare a gathering place for the Saints in the last days when ALL the destructions in the United States would take place.”
Does that sound like a bunch of bunk or what?! And why did Grandpa pass the buck? Did he think one of his sons would have more luck; do better than he the job of being the OM&S—be better able to “prepare a gathering place”?
IF he HAD the special “priesthood mantle; i.e., was the OM&S,” why did he do so LITTLE with it? Gramp did nothing out of the ordinary any pa might have done when it came to “raising a OM&S son” (LOL!) … and providing for a humongous family.
Inquiring minds want to know! Many people have left the LeBaron groups for lack of “By their fruits you shall know them.” In Other words, the “fruits” they saw convinced them this “gathering place” could not be the work of God!
Still, other descendents and converts to the various present-day Mexico-LeBaron cults continue to abide by and pass on the family LeBaronism lore with wide eyes, closed minds, and little more!!
They are helped along with all the stories in The LeBaron Story and Maud’s Story, LeBaron books chronicled and published to mislead; so as to keep or convert new members and progeny to Joel’s “Church of the Firstborn” … which really was Joel’s and Ervil’s “Church;” and mainly Ervil’s brainchild–along with a rich sprinkle of their gifted brother Ross Wesley Sr.’s dogma that was also part of the early pinnings of “Joel’s” “Church of the Firstborn.”
