A Warning About The Keys of Enoch

If you have read the link then you have found the Book of Enoch has been around longer than any other holy scripture. There has been decades of very intense research into this, dont let the LDS church Brainwash you into dismissing fact. If you do some research you will find there are some problems in the mormon church you are expected to dismiss and not allowed to question! Dont believe me? Print out the pages on the Link Ive Provided and lay them down in front of one of the high ranking elders of the LDS Church and see what a warm welcomed conversation generates from it.
And be prepared to be scorned! If you hold any rank in the LDS Church, Dont expect to keep it!
You say the Book of Enoch, Enoch1, is false doctrine only because you have been conditioned to believe that, yet other books in the bible we use today directly quote from enoch1.

Iwunder, you have really confused me with your post! I hope that the things I will say will come across the right way. I feel that there is a whole lot that needs to be clarified. I'm hoping your posts were because you are concerned about me, rather than just trying to discredit a good church that has a whole lot of people just trying to be better people.

First, I think that you may have misunderstood my post. I don't think that we as church and I certainly not, do dispute that their are ancient records of the Book of Enoch, which is what I stated in my earlier posts. In fact, we KNOW their will be further witnesses of the Bible. What I thought I was getting across is that we should be excited that there is also modern revelation regarding Enoch and his City, that clarify more abundantly the account in Genesis.

I'm not sure what you are aluding to, that we will be scorned for believing in ancient records and lose our callings (not ranks) in the church?????? I am a person that has talked openly about other records that have been found that confirm our doctrine and I have never been chastised yet. Has this happened to you or did you take an anti-mormon class that taught you that this is how we treat people? If it did happen, I'm very sorry, however, I don't think people in the church are without flaw, but the doctrine IS as received by Joseph Smith and our current prophets. HOwever if your just going on what you "heard" look at where the source is coming from. Is that really Christ-like?

Let me make myself more clear, since apparantly I didn't do that earlier. As a church we KNOW we look forward for further evidence, which has been coming forward for a long time, that confirms that the accounts in the Bible are true. This will also confirm that it is possible to have additional scripture that testifies of Christ. Everything I read in your links is mostly out of a book I own that I got at Deseret Book, called The Book of Enoch, the Prophet translated by Richard Laurence (I stated this before)

I have intently studied the scriptures every day of my life (few exceptions) for 17 years. I have studied the other ancient writings that are made available. I get excited when all these things confirm what we all should know, that Jesus is the Christ and he will return. I have also taken the challenges from anti-mormon doomsayers to learn "how my church is betraying me" and have read all of their literature. All that has accomplished is to deepen my faith and my commitment in what I feel in my heart to be true. Unfortunately, that does not satisfy them and they accuse me of being brainwashed.

I do not in anyway feel I am being deceived or brainwashed by my church. Who would be doing the brainwashing anyway? We are a church of lay ministry which means the average Joe are the ones who are the "teachers and leaders" of the chruch who teach with out pay. I personally, have held postitions of responsibilty and currently am the Gospel Doctrine teacher in my Ward. I have never taken a class or been personally trained on how to do that. Where did we get our teachings to do be able to brainwash? We don't hold special classes on how to discredit another religion or feel that we need to. Our message stands on it own merit.

I have thought for myself, acted for myself and the decisions that I have made make me happy. I allow all people the right to their belief that makes them happy without trying to discredit their churches, which I could easily do, but what good can come of that? Our philosophy is this: We invite you to learn what we teach, if you like what you hear and it feels right to you, then we invite you to join with us, if not, we love you, good luck to you and let us be friends.

My frustration comes when the intent of people who say and do such hateful things about people they never even knew (Joseph Smith, etc) I question their character because I would never in a million years, no matter if I don't believe in another churches doctrine, would I stand outside their temples, churches, print material, etc. to hurt or injure those people or disrupt their happiness. It is an evil agenda that does that. God=Love and peace. Satan= hate and anger.

I think ultimately, some want to cast the "mote" out of their neighbors eye, when they have a "beam" in their own. I think we should be more kind, more tolerant, more friendly, more loving, more holy and we would all be fine.

Thanks for your post and your concern.

Your right I appologize that was a little direct and inapropriate, but I do hope you take the time to read and explore the link I provided and read the owners of the site link motives.
Additional it may be a good Idea to have this discussion beginning another thread cuz I think our discussion is bringing the thread in a direction the original author predicted and asked kindly not to happen.

If you start another thread please U2U me the link, for the topic is interesting.

Yeah, but most threads that have any connection with the LDS Church (not the "Mormon Church") tends to go that way. Perhaps I could have posted that in the prediction section of ATS, however, I would like to point something out. I have noticed a pretty high number of LDS members on the ATS forum, which is amazing since so many consider us to be a "no questions asked" religion, because ATS would then be the antithesis of our Church if that was the point. I'm the male YSA representative for my ward (and possibly the stake starting next semester), so I've got some responsibility too, but I haven't been accepted into any of the brainwashing classes yet either.

I had to defend my right to believe in whatever I want to believe in tonight at a friend's apartment while playing Pictionary. I was the only LDS member there, and one person came up to me basically asking how I could believe in something like that since I was such an intelligent person (his words about me being intelligent, definately not mine). I asked him what difference it would make in the world whether I believe or not since in his world there is no God (he is a card carrying member of the ACLU). Regardless of whether I believe Joseph Smith translated the Scriptures, or whether we are governed by a giant bologna sandwich in the sky it wouldn't matter, because in his view there is no God, so I wouldn't be hurting anyone. He accepted that answer and we continued the game.

Back to the point about the City of Enoch. We, as the LDS community, believe that this city was translated (meaning that the inhabitants of the city did not taste death). Therefore, any searches for physical remains would be useless, assuming that our belief is correct (for the sake of going along with our beliefs). My initial question was whether or not the City of Enoch could possibly be one of the civilizations talked about in legends, but under a different name.

Sounds like you made your point with the coldcut sandwich. I would like to know if youve expiermented with the links and what your interpretation of the material is taking into consideration the amount of research these people put into translating the doctrine with the strongs concordance.

When I lived in colorado I attended a morman church for a spell but quickly became unpopular by asking innocent questions that seemed to quickly ruffle feathers with short agressive answers.

I still have many LDS, Morman freinds, I dont judge them, they are still christians, I have catholic freinds as well as many others, Thats One of the things that makes our Nation So Great, Free Choice, and Diversity.

I am glad you hold tight to your religeon and beliefs, Without ethics, morals, and guidance, we give our children no direction, nothing to look forward to, or understanding of reward for living in the light of good or how to defend themselves in a world that seems to be now more than ever is being encompassed with evil and darkness.

My opinion is the morman empire is more business oriented, but thats just my opinion which I am entitled as you are.

I just want to know how you interpret the material.

I lived for awhile with a mormon family. My only question and it has remained for years now is: why do mormons stock up with food and have fondness for guns?

Do they know something others don't?

Preparedness, theyve done it for years, in the event of major cotastrophe or colamity.

Nowadays, probably wouldnt hurt to take up the practice. Call it a paranoid angle if you like, but if something big and bad happens its not likely you will be able to run to your local drive thru for a burger!!

Okay, I am not wanting to sound pushy or anything here but apparently some things need to be cleared up. It is the "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints", not the "Mormon Church". Also, Iwunder, you have repeatedly referred to is as the "Morman" church. I understand that this spelling is used to put forth the opinion that it was created by man and not of God. I am sure that you are intelligent enough to not misspell this word time and time again, as the "o" and "a" keys are spaced far apart on the keyboard so it is not a mistyped key. This should clear up one of two things, either you will have learned how to correctly spell the social label that has been placed upon the LDS Church, or you will have realized that I have realized the distinct spelling of the word.

As for the food storage. I have family in Florida living in the area that the hurricanes came through. As far as I know, I am the only LDS member in my family (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.). However, there are 3 seperate families of mine that live in 3 seperate parts of Florida. When they were called to evacuate, all 3 families found themselves inside of an LDS building where they stayed until the evacuation was called off (or whatever they do). The stockpiling of food is not just for ourselves, but it is often used to help others in the community. Saving up some canned goods for an emergency isn't a bad idea anyways, that's the way I grew up. Canned vegetables, peaches, apple butter, lots of canned goods for when the winter hit. That's the way my family has always gone about things preparing for the winter, but the LDS Church recommends that its members do the same, in order to be more prepared for whatever may come our way.

Now to link this with the topic at hand...I wonder how much stored food was also translated when the City of Enoch was "called up"?

Also, we (speaking of the LDS community) have been told that it is important to have proper rest, so after staying up until 2:00am playing Pictionary last night then having class at 8, lab at 9, and a test at 10 I feel that I am in need of a nap. I'm just doing what I have been told is good for me, and I do this often. So I'll check this later on after I've had a good nap (besides, it's Friday and I've earned it)...

Okay, I'm glad to hear that. It's hard to read someone's emotions through a forum or instant messaging, but gauging from the rest of your posts it didn't seem like you were making a sly play on words. My assumptions were correct, and I am glad. If you plug in "Mormon" and "Morman" into a computer's default speech program, it comes out the same. No harm, no foul.

I think this thread might have ran its course, so what's another ancient civilization that we can touch on that hasn't already been swamped on the ATS board?

I am for the question about where was Abraham's city of Ur? By the way you guys were cracking me up! I really needed that laugh today.


I have read Hugh Nibley Book on Abraham and he commented that in Abrahams days that they were technicologically way more advanced than we give them credit. In fact in some of the ancient writings...I'll have to go back to which, that they even had airplane type technology...Hmmmmmm!


PS, Iwunder, u2u me or post about what it is that you want us to comment about the links you gave? What are you interested in our opinions about?

Its not a secret, I was wundering how your faith accepts the new technological Interpretation aspect the site link suggests on biblical doctrines, primarily comparible to anomalies we se in our skies today that government passes us witnesses of unusual arial crafts and related events as cookoo for coco puffs!?

Does the LDS Community Support the Governments angle or lean towards the ufo technology aspect?

If at all it was, it was in Egypt. I have a thread entitled Giza-What is the Egyptian government hiding, which somewhat discusses that without mentioning yet any connection to enoch, but will. For now, it was likely around the area of Naqada, the walled city. refer Gen. 4:17 And dig up some historical Hebrew and Sumerian texts.

City of Enoch is mentioned in THE BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE: THE KEYS OF ENOCH (R) by Dr. J.J. Hurtak. See the Map of the Sacred Grid in Central America on page 311. See Key 319. Notice the word Enoch is inside the word Tenochtitlan. This gives us a huge clue as to the location of a city of Enoch.

a reply to: petey_pongo23

After reading over some of my older posts I found this thread on the City of Enoch. I wanted to show where the city Sippara is mentioned in sacred texts. I didn’t reference it in this thread.

The Chaldean account of Genesis described by Berosus

In his time happened a great deluge; the history of which is thus described. The deity Cronos appeared to him in a vision, and warned him that upon the fifteenth day of the month Dæsius there would be a flood, by which mankind would be destroyed. He therefore enjoined him to write a history of the beginning, procedure, and conclusion of all things, and to bury it in the city of the Sun at Sippara; and to build a vessel, and take with him into it his friends and relations; and to convey on board every thing necessary to sustain life, together with all the different animals (pg 42-43),
www.sacred-texts.com...

I made reference to that city in a previous post and was quoting from a fantasy novel of the late 1800’s.
www.abovetopsecret.com...


Japheth's wife here in this story says she read the manuscript called the "The History of King Irad", who was given to her by her father Aleemon, the Sage of Sippara. Sippara is said to be a pre-flood city mentioned by Berosus of Chaldea. A Chaldean inscription mentions an antediluvian sage as "Aleemon, sage of Sippara," which latter word means City of Books, or City of Ra, the Sun god.

Maybe you should be looking for Sippara for it could lead to the other legendary cities like Enoch.


Sippara is also called City of Ra, the Sun god. After browsing around ancient Egyptian sites online I wonder if Saqqara has any association to Berosus’ Sippara?

Saqqara


Saqqara is an ancient burial site in Egypt. It is the necropolis for the Ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis. Saqqara features the world famous step pyramid of Djoser. The pyramid is believed to have been built during the Third Dynasty. The burial site was named after Beni Saqqar (sons of Saqqar) which was a Berber tribe that lived close to the area.

Maybe there’s more to be found under Djoser’s step pyramid in Egypt.

As Latter-day Saints, We believe This is our teaching: 1. That Jesus Christ came into the world because His Father sent Him
2. That Jesus was lifted up upon the cross to draw all men/women to him
3. Because He was lifted up and judged by wicked men, He will righteously judge all men after their resurrection, for not only what they said with their lips, but what they did with their hands.
4. That Jesus taught clearly the way to Him is through Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Reception of the Holy Ghost, Enduring to the End (obedience)
and that He is the advocate with the Father in our behalf.

I am sorry if these things scare people, however I feel
that is a problem within themselves, not with us.


you are mistaken about #1, LDS believe that Jesus is God.

a reply to: Justanotherperson

Don't forget about the story of the Miracle of the gulls, where the mormons' crops, as they were heading west, had fallen prey to a massive swarm of mormon crickets (yes, that's why they're called that). The seagulls came in an ate up enough of the infestation that the mormons survived to continue on.

The memory of near death for the church may keep their prepper mentality alive and well today.

Honestly, many people would do so well as to learn from the past like that...plus, LDS members are very quick to help out each other in any way possible, so that aids greatly in the ability to do so.

I may disagree with religion, but I have an aunt and many cousins who are LDS members--religious dogma aside, they are some of the kindest, most loving people I know.

ETA: Similar memory of banishment may indeed drive the fondness for firearms, along with the need for protection--if there were some sort of catastrophe and it was well-known that they are stocked on food and related items, a need to defend one's family or group would be a necessity as those who are ill-prepared try to overpower those who are.

It's actually quite a sane plan.
