13 O ye that are bound down under a foolish and a vain hope, why do ye yoke yourselves with such foolish things? Why do ye look for a Christ? For no man can know of anything which is to come.
14 Behold, these things which ye call prophecies, which ye say are handed down by holy prophets, behold, they are foolish traditions of your fathers.
15 How do ye know of their surety? Behold, ye cannot know of things which ye do not see; therefore ye cannot know that there shall be a Christ.
16 Ye look forward and say that ye see a remission of your sins. But behold, it is the effect of a frenzied mind; and this derangement of your minds comes because of the traditions of your fathers, which lead you away into a belief of things which are not so.
17 And many more such things did he say unto them, telling them that there could be no atonement made for the sins of men, but every man fared in this life according to the management of the creature; therefore every man prospered according to his genius, and that every man conquered according to his strength; and whatsoever a man did was no crime.
18 And thus he did preach unto them, leading away the hearts of many, causing them to lift up their heads in their wickedness, yea, leading away many women, and also men, to commit whoredoms—telling them that when a man was dead, that was the end thereof.
- Alma 30
If you give a man a fish, you prevent him from dying for a day; if you teach a man to fish you torture him until his imminent death on that day. If you truly wish a man to live a full life you must provide him will all of the basic tools and education, but also a fishing hole with sufficient amount of good and healthy fish.
This is why welfare should never be needed, IF our economy was not corrupt, which economy is controlled by Big Business aided and unchecked by Government. The economy is run on the false principle of "Survival of the Fittest". It is because of the corruption of the economy that there is a need for welfare. And all those who refuse to give welfare under a corrupt economy, or limit the welfare under a corrupt economy are equally corrupt.
For the LDS Church they use Fast Offerings to fund their Welfare System. Tithing goes to construction of Churches and Temples. Yet in the Temple Recommend Interviews Mormons are required to pay Tithing and a "generous Fast Offering" in order to receive a recommend. The mentally ill are forced to pay to tithing and fast offering funds from their welfare check in order to be accepted as a Mormon. This is religious fraud just as the FLDS Church who got busted for their members giving their Food Stamps to the Church. Tithing as defined in the LDS Church's Doctrine and Covenants is to be "10% of your interest annually", that has later been redefined by successive Church Presidents as meaning !0% of one's income rather than the interest on that income. Malachi tells us in his book in the Old Testament, that Tithing is supposed to help the poor and the needy, not to build buildings with; the LDS Church has messed up on that restoring doctrine. Then it was exposed what the LDS Leaders make on a paycheck when they are supposed to be lay ministers.
I WARNED you I could destroy the LDS Church by simply comparing it to the Book of Mormon. This is ONLY ONE EXAMPLE! I've got much more, because there's much more in the Book of Mormon.
