Why is the Mormon church sending missionaries to Guam every month?

I am concerned about this monthly activity which contributes to Climate Change. In light of all the information regarding carbon footprint and how we should all try to minimize our carbon footprints to help save the planet, the Mormon church, on a monthly basis, regularly sends missionaries (Group Leaders) to Guam, supposedly to submit their "SPECIAL REPORTS".

My question is this: WHY DON'T THEY JUST EMAIL THESE REPORTS? Why not minimize your carbon footprint as a Church in Micronesia by emailing these reports? Or are these reports TOP SECRET? that they cannot email them on regular internet because they belong on JWICS?



  • It is very strange and unusual that the Mormon church continues to do this every month in Micronesia despite the fact that most large organizations are sensitive to their carbon footprint, especially those who operate in the Pacific.

    What kind of reports are they submitting? Can't they just attach them to emails and click the SEND button?

  • coconuts,

    The Mormons own Boeing, the company that manufactures aircrafts, most jumbo jets. They also own numerous companies which manufactures goods or buy goods in volumes. The Marriott Hotel chain is Mormon owned. This organization is very secretive to the point that their members are losing faith in their leaders.

    So, flying every so often is not a big deal to them.
  • TruthIsThat,

    I think the reason why they have to hand carry these reports to Guam is because they are probably classified reports which cannot be send as attachments on the regular internet. The US Government has strict restrictions on classified communications and because of this they require that all communications be sent through their own global intranet known as JWICS or SIPRNET.

    It is the same reason that they were trying to convict Hilary Clinton due to her using the regular internet to send US State Department emails through the regular internet.

    So in light of all of this, there is good reason to be suspicious of these people who come in to our islands and are given free access to roam and spy on everyone. I think they are most likely using them to eavesdrop on our citizens and governments.

    This could be the reason why they need to hand carry these reports to Guam every month from all of the FSM States, Belau, and RMI. These reports most likely contain classified info on our government and citizens which cannot be emailed using regular internet.
  • In addition to their ownership of many large US Corporations, the Mormons also own real estate in space on planet Kolob which is located nearest to the throne of God.


    Kolob is a star or planet described in the sacred text of the Latter Day Saint movement. Reference to Kolob is found in the Book of Abraham, a work that is traditionally held by several Latter Day Saint denominations as having been translated from an Egyptian papyrus scroll by Joseph Smith, the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement. According to this work, Kolob is the heavenly body nearest to the throne of God. While the Book of Abraham refers to Kolob as a "star",[1] it also refers to planets as "stars",[2] and, therefore, some Mormon commentators consider Kolob to be a planet.[3] The body also appears in Mormon culture, including a reference to Kolob in an LDS hymn.[4]

    Description in the Book of Abraham
    Facsimile No. 2 from the Book of Abraham, which Smith said discusses Kolob. The part Smith said refers to Kolob is numbered by a "1" in the center.

    The first published reference to Kolob is found in the Book of Abraham, first published in 1842 in Times and Seasons and now included within the Pearl of Great Price as part of the canon of Mormonism. The Book of Abraham was dictated in 1836 by Smith after he purchased a set of Egyptian scrolls that accompanied a mummy exhibition. According to Smith, the scrolls described a vision of Abraham, in which Abraham:

    saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest unto the throne of God; ... and the name of the great one is Kolob, because it is near unto me, for I am the Lord thy God: I have set this one to govern all those which belong to the same order as that upon which thou standest.[5]

    In an explanation of an Egyptian hypocephalus that was part of the Joseph Smith Papyri, Smith interpreted one set of hieroglyphics as representing:

    Kolob, signifying the first creation, nearest to the celestial, or the residence of God. First in government, the last pertaining to the measurement of time. The measurement according to celestial time, which celestial time signifies one day to a cubit. One day in Kolob is equal to a thousand years according to the measurement of the Earth, which is called by the Egyptians Jah-oh-eh.[6]

    The Book of Abraham describes a hierarchy of heavenly bodies,[7] including the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun, each with different movements and measurements of time, where at the pinnacle, the slowest-rotating body is Kolob, where one Kolob-day corresponds to 1000 Earth-years.[8] This is similar to Psalm 90:4 which says that "For a thousand years in [God's] sight are but as yesterday when it is past" and 2 Peter 3:8 which says, "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years". Additional, similar information about Kolob is found in the Kirtland Egyptian Papers, constituting manuscripts in the handwriting of Smith and his scribes.
  • It may very well be true what you are sharing. I believe in my heart the Mormons worship a different Jesus than the one the Christians worship. Their teachings for the most part contradict the teachings of the Bible which contains the holy word of God.

  • TruthIsThat,

    Everything I have written above is true to the Word, and in the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with Us, and the Word was God.

    According to Mormon church doctrine and their Book of Morman, all brown and dark skinned people on Earth are cursed and that we are all descended from Laman. Apparently, they secretly refer to us as "Lamanites", and that we will never be able to enter into Heaven because we are a cursed people.

    I believe they only recently let brown and dark skinned people into their secretive church (which is really a cult) to make it appear as if they are non-discriminatory in their ways. However, not long ago, brown and dark skinned people were not allowed into their church (cult).

    And even after they allowed brown and dark skinned people to join their church (cult), for many years, these brown and dark skinned people were not allowed to hold high positions such as Bishops or even waterboys in church sports leagues.

    The Mormon church is not a real church, it is a secret front organization for Lucifer's kingdom on Earth.

  • Mormons worldwide are anxiously awaiting the revelation of Planet Kolob's exact location so that they may know which direction to face when praying.
  • The Book of Abraham is canonized Mormon doctrine is one of three books which was authored by Joseph Smith (The False Prophet) and is included in the Mormon book known as the "Pearl of Great Price".

    This is an excerpt from wikipedia entry regarding the Book of Abraham which Joseph Smith translated from an Egyptian Papyri purchased at an auction in Chicago.

    Distinct doctrines
    Main articles: Priesthood (Mormonism), Mormon cosmology, Kolob, Pre-existence, Exaltation (Mormonism), and God in Mormonism

    The Book of Abraham text is a source of some distinct Latter Day Saint doctrines, which Mormon author Randal S. Chase calls "truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ that were previously unknown to Church members of Joseph Smith's day."[34] Examples include the nature of the priesthood,[35] an understanding of the cosmos,[36] the exaltation of humanity,[37] a pre-mortal existence, the first and second estates,[38] and the plurality of gods.[39]

    The Book of Abraham expands upon the nature of the priesthood in the Latter Day Saint movement, and it is suggested in the work that those who are foreordained to the priesthood earned this right by valor or nobility in the pre-mortal life.[40] In a similar vein, the Book explicitly denotes that Pharaoh was a descendant of Ham[41] and thus "of that lineage by which he could not have the right of Priesthood".[42] This passage is the only one found in any Mormon scripture that bars a particular lineage of people from holding the priesthood. Even though nothing in the Book of Abraham explicitly connects the line of Pharaoh and Ham to black Africans,[43] this passage was used as a scriptural basis for withholding the priesthood from black individuals.[44] Neither Joseph Smith nor Brigham Young used the Book of Abraham to justify the banning blacks from the priesthood. It wasn't until 1900 that George Q. Cannon, a member of the First Presidency, began using the story of Pharaoh as a scriptural basis for the ban.[45]:205 In 1912, the First Presidency responded to an inquiry about the priesthood ban by using the story of Pharaoh.[46] By the early 1900s, it became the foundation of church policy in regards to the priesthood ban.[45]:205 The 2002 Doctrine and Covenants Student Manual points to Abraham 1:21-27 as the reasoning behind the not giving black people the priesthood until 1978.[47]

    Chapter 3 of the Book of Abraham describes a unique (and purportedly Egyptian[28][48]) understanding of the hierarchy of heavenly bodies, each with different movements and measurements of time.[49] In regard to this chapter, Randal S. Chase notes, "With divine help, Abraham was able to gain greater comprehension of the order of the galaxies, stars, and planets than he could have obtained from earthly sources."[28] At the pinnacle of the cosmos is the slowest-rotating body, Kolob, which, according to the text, is the star closest to where God lives.[50] The Book of Abraham is the only work in the Latter Day Saint canon to mention the star Kolob.[51] According to the Book:

    [Abraham] saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest unto the throne of God; ... and the name of the great one is Kolob, because it is near unto me, for I am the Lord thy God: I have set this one to govern all those which belong to the same order as that upon which thou standest.[52]

    Based on this verse, the LDS Church claims that "Kolob is the star nearest to the presence of God [and] the governing star in all the universe."[53] Time moves slowly on the celestial body; one Kolob-day corresponds to 1,000 earth-years.[49] The Church also notes: "Kolob is also symbolic of Jesus Christ, the central figure in God's plan of salvation."[53]

    The Book of Abraham also explores pre-mortal existence. The LDS Church website explains: "Life did not begin at birth, as is commonly believed. Prior to coming to earth, individuals existed as spirits."[54] These spirits are eternal and of different intelligences.[55] Prior to mortal existence, spirits exist in the "first estate". Once certain spirits (i.e., those who choose to follow the plan of salvation offered by God the Father of their own accord) take on a mortal form, they enter into what is called the "second estate".[53][56] The doctrine of the second estate is explicitly named only in this book.[57] The purpose of earthly life, therefore, is for humans to prepare for a meeting with God; the Church, citing Abraham 3:26 notes: "All who accept and obey the saving principles and ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ will receive eternal life, the greatest gift of God, and will have 'glory added upon their heads for ever and ever'."[53][54]

    Also notable is the Book of Abraham's insistence that there are many gods, and that "the gods"[nb 3] created the Earth, not ex nihilo, but rather from pre-existing, eternal matter.[54][30] This shift away from monotheism and towards polytheism occurred c. 1838–39, when Smith was imprisoned in the Liberty Jail in Clay County, Missouri (this was after the majority of the Book of Abraham had been supposedly translated, but prior to its publication).[59] Smith noted that there would be "a time come in the [sic] which nothing shall be with held [sic] whither [sic] there be one god or many gods they [sic] shall be manifest all thrones and dominions, principalities and powers shall be revealed and set forth upon all who have indured [sic] valiently [sic] for the gospel of Jesus Christ" and that all will be revealed "according to that which was ordained in the midst of the councyl [sic] of the eternal God of all other Gods before this world was."[60]

    According to the Book of Mormon and the fellow that translated it, all brown skinned people on Earth are cursed descendants of Laman. This Laman character was apparently cursed by Jehovah and as a result, all his descendants (This includes all Pacific Islanders) are cursed.

  • coconuts, why are you so harsh and negative on Mormons? I am not a Mormon and I don't believe in passing judgement on anybody. Were you once a Mormon member but got kicked out? My humble request: let them worship in peace. We all want and need that. I have relatives and friends who are Mormons. I respect their belief. We all should and leave them alone.
  • Never was and never have been. I am not being harsh, I am simply pointing out some facts about their religion which often preaches that they are the "true church" and that the Book of Mormon is a restored gospel which God and Jesus gave to Joseph Schmith.

    Here are some facts:
    Fact#1 - Joseph Smith claimed that God's throne was located on Planet Kolob.
    Fact#2 - Joseph Smith claimed that the American Indians and all brown skinned people were descendants (Lamanites) of Laman, and that the reason they have brown skin is because they are cursed.

    All of these above facts are written into their church books of mormon and abraham.
  • coconuts, thanks for providing info on Mormons. I would still request that you leave them alone--to believe in the doctrines of their faith. Who are we to challenge their teachings? Yes, we see things based on our own perspective and our own belief about the different faiths. Some of us don't like Muslims; some don't like Hindus; some don't like SDA's; some don't like Catholics; some don't like Protestants. But that is okay. Let everybody pray to their GODS as their belief and religion doctrines dictate.

    We're all different people having learned or adopted our religious beliefs from different sources. Maybe some Mormons will be converted to whatever is your religion in the future or vise versa. But for now, lets all pray in our own ways and worship based on our faith--including the Mormons. They have their right to worship as they see consistent with their beliefs. Just some thoughts on this nice and peaceful Sunday morning here in Pohnpei.
