We Just Aren't Getting It

I see it in the divisions we create among ourselves. We separate by gay/straight, man/woman, black/white, rich/poor, and every single one of those separations is the exact antithesis of Zion.

When we oppress, tread down, and dis-unify with others we are fighting against God and Goddess, destroying the saints of God and sending them away.

It is said over and over, if we would be Christ's, we must be one, as He is one with the Father. We must mourn with those who mourn, comfort those who stand in need of comfort, literally. We are commanded to love God, love each other and forgive all people. Not some of them, or just the ones we like, all of them. Every single one, without exception.

"If you do not accuse each other, God will not accuse you. If you have no accuser you will enter heaven. . . . What many people call sin is not sin; I do many things to break down superstition, and I will break it down."
  • Joseph Smith, History of the Church, 4:445-446

This is the key, right here. Salvation alone is NOT salvation. Our Heavenly Parents' work and glory is to bring to pass the eternal life of Their children, not to pick and choose, or play favorites. Eternal life is life as They live - in perfect unity. If we would be like them, then we must be one. Unity, over and over again is the message.

And we just aren't getting it, like crabs in a bucket, pulling each other down to gain an imaginary advantage.

Oh, for the day when we join together and truly seek Zion - to be of one heart, one mind and to have NO poor among us, whether poor of spirit or poor of possessions.
