With the establishment of the Holy Roman Empire taking over the Catholic Church came many, in fact, all definition changes to all doctrines, foremost being that of Constantine's change of the very nature and character of God. It truly was the downward motion of the whole Church that once was tied to Jesus. The Protestant Revolution exposed the Catholic Church's changes and corruptions, but each Protestant break-off only adopted a portion of the needed changes, such that in Early America there was Campbell's Campbellites who wanted a Restoration Revolution. The LDS Church is such a Restoration Revolution Church with Sidney Rigdon, who had been a Campbellite.
But in the LDS Church there occurred an Authority Crisis, 1st in 1838 while Joseph Smith was in jail, most of the top LDS leadership was excommunicated with Brigham Young elevating himself. Then came the 2nd wave in 1844 with the murders of Joseph Smith and his appointed successor Hyrum Smith. Again Brigham Young elevated himself. Brigham Young then made all of the famous changes to the LDS doctrinal definitions for the very nature and character of God just like Constantine. Under Brigham Young the LDS Church became Catholic "the downward motion of the whole".
So not only have we witness the downward motion of our whole Nation in regards to the Government altering and adding changes to the very nature of the U.S. Constitution and its definitions, but also with the LDS Church, which though it has the Book of Mormon warning us specifically of this downward motion, no longer embraces its teachings only giving lip service to it as if it were an idol, in exactly the same way that the U.S. Constitution is treated by our Government leaders.
A Restoration is now needed for both our Nation and for the LDS Church, yet I'm the lone voice crying in the wilderness, tortured by my government and now shunned by my Church.
