Answer
Hi Yusufabdullah,
 I will be happy to answer your questions.

Priesthood keys are the authority given by God in the latter day (since the 1820s) to baptize, lay on of hands, to heal, give the gift of the Holy Ghost, and to administer the Sacrament.

Some may have taken this too far in assuming that whatsoever they say in the name of God is "sealed in heaven" even if such things were not inspired by God and disagree with the Scriptures. Many false doctrines have been canonized into the church by this false idea.

Yes, AT TIMES Israel and the USA are blessed above other nations, but this is conditional! This is under the conditions when Israel or the USA are obeying God's commandments, not given over to lust, crime, murders, secret societies, greed etc. etc. When these chosen nations are righteous they are blessed above all other nations, when wicked they are cursed. This happened to Israel many times in the old days when they worshipped idols, committed all manner of iniquity and ultimately sacrificed children to pagen idols. When this happened they were taken over by foreign nations, the majority slain, faced horrible persecutions throughout the ages. We know this happened when they were taken over the Babylonians near 600 BC, by the Roman near the time of Christ, and in the latter day by the Russians and Nazis. The same curse faces the USA and prophecy say when we are filled with lyings, murders, witchcrafts, secret combinations etc. we will be destroyed in such a manner as has never been known in history. I think we are getting close to it.

I have not read any of the other books you mentioned. They do not lead to Christ and Karl Marx was plain evil. Stay away from such things, there is nothing good in it.

God Bless,
Mike

For a different viewpoint on Mormonism for your questions, try me. I am a staunch believer in the Book of Mormon and belong to another church (the Church of Christ)that is set up identically to the Biblical church. If there are things about traditional Mormonism that trouble you or you have questions about, just ask and you might find the answers from the Book of Mormon to be quite surprising. I have been studying the scriptures diligently for 16 years under the school of hard knocks... I may not have all of the answers but will sure go find them if I don`t. I`m strongest on Biblical and Book of Mormon doctrines, and am also somewhat familiar with Mormon history and archaeology.
