I See... How to Shake the Very Powers of Hell

“Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men.” Alma 48:17.

How many of us have thought, at least several times a day, “what would it be like if I could just shake the very powers of hell? ” I know I have.

In the rich tradition of the Mormon Third Eye supplying fellow Latter-day Saints with practical “how-to” advice (past instruction includes how to name a rock band, how to end any argument with your wife, how to buy a new car for only $200, how to make the ward grow, how to teach your teens about money, how to efficiently sin AND repent, and how to do successfully something you have never done before), I offer simple instruction on how to shake the very powers of hell If you have ever tiptoed through a typical television day with the remote and found that even the commercials are too pornographic or suggestive to watch in mixed company, or been overburdened by the specter of federal government officials with patently Marxist backgrounds implementing regulations that threaten to undermine an inspired Constitution, then this advice will come in handy.

Logic dictates that “if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever,” then all we have to do is find men (and women) like Captain Moroni to lead our nation and the entertainment industry. It's that simple!

So... how to find men (and women) like Captain Moroni... hmm... I wonder what type of man he was... hmm...

Wait a minute.... Alma 48: 11-13 describes Captain Moroni's character. Apparently he was strong and mighty; had perfect understanding; did not delight in bloodshed; had a soul that did joy in the liberty and freedom of his country, and also liberating his fellow citizens from bondage and slavery. Furthermore, he had a heart that swelled with thanksgiving to God, and he labored exceedingly for the welfare and safety of his people. Ultimately, however, he was firm in the faith of Christ, and honored with his life the oath he had made to defend his people, his rights, his country, and his religion.

Hmm... anybody know someone in politics or the entertainment industry who is strong, understands the world well, hates war, loves freedom, is thankful, works hard, has faith in Christ, and keeps promises to defend to the death our rights, our country, and our God? I would vote for them and watch their tv shows and movies.

Hmm... this may be a little bit harder than I thought!
