Why do apostates and “Progressive Mormons” on Twitter come and seek out #DezNat? So we can tell them of their sins and iniquities? Is it because we faithful saints have come together to pour out our souls to our God on social media, because of the exceeding sorrow of our hearts, which is because of your iniquities! And because of our tweets of mourning and lamentation you apostates have gathered yourselves together against us and are worried? You should worry because you have gone astray and the devil has a great hold upon your hearts.
How could you have given in to the enticing of him who is seeking to hurl away your souls down to everlasting misery and endless wo? It is because you have hardened your hearts; you will no longer listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd; you have provoked Him to anger against you. Instead of comforting you and bringing together, unless you will repent, he shall scatter you forth that you’ll become meat for dogs and wild beasts.
How could you have forgotten your God in the very day that he has blessed you? It is because you want likes, shares, retweets and approval of Babylon. You want followers and clout. You seek the praise of those who hate God and hate righteousness.
If you don’t repent you will lose everything you have. Everything the Lord has given you. Thus saith the Lord: “I will not show unto the wicked of my strength, to one more than the other, save it be unto those who repent of their sins, and hearken unto my words.”
You say, “If we had only lived in the times when Jesus taught, when we had a truly kind and understanding leader. We would not have complained about his condemnation of sin; we would not have slain the prophets; we would not have stoned them, and cast them out.” But you people are worse than those who stoned the prophets in days of old, because you do hear the words of living prophets. If a Dallin H. Oaks preaches the word of the Lord and testifies of your sins and iniquities, you are angry with him. You look for any way to contradict him and claim he is a false prophet only speaking as a man. You claim he is a sinner and of the devil only because he tells you that your behavior is evil.
Now if someone from #TwitterStake says do whatever makes you happy; there is no sin and you shouldn’t suffer. He will say: “Live your truth, you were born that way, do whatever your heart tells you.” Anyone who speaks in this manner is immediately accepted and you esteem such as a prophet. You never criticize people who tell you that have no need of repentance. You give them follows and likes and praise of all kinds. You find no reason to critique such a person.
O ye wicked and ye perverse generation; ye hardened and ye stiffnecked people, how long will ye suppose that the Lord will suffer you? Yea, how long will ye suffer yourselves to be led by foolish and blind guides? Yea, how long will ye choose darkness rather than light?
