|There are three kingdoms in heaven. They
have been called by the LDS groups as The Telestial,
Terrestial, and Celestial. The idea as presented to them
is that the :
"Prior to the 12th century, traditional English
law courts had been jointly presided over by a bishop
and a local secular magistrate. In 1166, however,
Henry II promulgated the Constitutions of Clarendon
which established a new system of courts that rendered
decisions wholly by royal authority. The Assizes
touched off a power struggle between the king and
Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury. Becket
asserted that these secular courts had no jurisdiction
over clergymen because it was the privilege of clergy
not to be accused or tried for crime except before an
ecclesiastical court. After four of Henry's knights
murdered Becket in 1170, public sentiment turned
against the king and he was forced to make amends with
the church. As part of the Compromise of Avranches,
Henry was purged of any guilt in Becket's murder but
he agreed that the secular courts, with few exceptions
(high treason being one of them), had no jurisdiction
over the clergy."
As we can see from the above, there were two separate
systems of governments patterned after the later idea of
church and state. The concept is to make a division
between the Telestial kingdom of the lower civil law,
and the Terrestial higher so called church law
presumably of the love your neighbor as self standard.
In the orders in heaven, the higher and lower forms of
government are not considered higher and lower in the
sense of better than one over the other. Rather they are
different levels of human advancement. They work
together in the similar fashion as other orders of
heaven working in harmony with each other each order
being ruled by one of the three departmental
heads. It is a matter of choice. The choice being
to align and live under the umbrella of the Telestial
kingdom presided over by that hierarchical head of king
or president etc. of that of the civil law and the
alternative Terrestrial kingdom based on a
Terrestial church of the law of love your neighbor as
self. For my purposes, the church is defined as

CM: = CONTROLLED MEANING.1. CHURCH
TM: = TRUE MEANING
We will only handle a dozen or so falsely used terms so as not to overload and will add to the dictionary as we move along and find it necessary.
CM: A building or organization used by Christians (predominantly, so as not be confused with synagogue or temple) to meet together regularly to sing, pray and worship according to denominational doctrines.
TM: The English word "Church," the Scottish work "Kirk" and the German word "Kirche" all originate from the Greek word "KURIOKOS" which means pertaining to the THE LORD.
The "Judeo-Christian" (oh pain and agony on us all) use of this word carries2. ECCLESIA
with it an enigma that defies all logic and reason. The English Bible translators
substituted the word "church" KURIOKOS for the Greek word "ECCLESIA".
A Christian ECCLESIA is "A CALLED (convoked) CIVIL BODY": a local Christian assembly of elders (Christian Civil Government). The word "church" should not even appear in the English New Testament. It is a mistranslation. "KUROIOKOS" is not "ECCLESIA"! The words are totally different; the institutions are different. No where in the Bible do you find a kuriokos. There is only "the called -out (elect)" ecclesia which unfortunately was mistranslated into "church", transforming it (in English) from Christian government to superstitious and ritualistic Baal Worship. Encyclopedia Britannica, Ninth Edition (1989): "In the New Testament, ecclesia, signifying 'convocation', is the only single word used (translated) for 'church'. It was the name given to the governmental assembly of the citizens of ATHENS (NOW GREECE), duly convoked (called out) by proper officers, and possessing all political power, including even juridical functions." Let us discuss each of these terms in context of examples, please. Jesus the Christ NEVER established a church on earth. Neither did he in "latter" days nor in "former" days. "Churches are man-made organizations that are, in most cases, creations of the "State" laws of incorporation or non-taxable organizations. There are no exceptions I can think of off hand. By following the State rules the President or minister or whoever falls under the official laws of the State and ceases to follow the total instructions of Jesus Christ or God Divine. During Jesus' mortal experience he directed his Apostles to establish ecclesias, not churches, among the Israelite people (israel: a people chosen by God and this does not mean even Judean nor Palestinian. It is a description, not the name of a state.) He commissioned them to preach the good news of the Reign (influence) of Christ (ideal type of humanity through right actions, thoughts and deeds). That does not say Jesus or Yeahoo--it says: preach the good news of the influence of the teacher giving forth the ideal type of instructions to humanity! Neither does it say to go forth and give your opinion as to what you desire to believe but project that which was given forth by the Christed teacher (messiah) messenger. ANY TRUE PROPHET OF GOD--knows this and would not sway the meaning nor mistranslate the words chosen for the "modern" translations of truth--GOD DOES NOT MAKE ERRORS IN PROJECTIONS OF DIRECT PROPHETIC DIALOGUE. ESPECIALLY WHEN GIVING FORTH "ORIGINAL" PROJECTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS--A GOOD CLUE AS TO WHERE "YOUR" FAVORITE PREACHER OR PROPHET MIGHT BE CATEGORIZED.
Another example is given in the article Priesthood Theory. Below is an extract:
Scenario Of A Nemenhah Dispensation
we have a decentralized system of families forming their
own Patriarchal governments. And a village government
consisting of a council nominated by the village mothers
and upheld by the general consensus of the people.
And a High Priest to steward the Temple and to act
as spokesperson and leader of the Council. He is
called the Feather of the Council by these people and
has no decision making role in this council. Other Peli
Patriarchs are appointed as stewards to the village as
needed. An example might be over certain lodges specific
to the people, such as a medicine lodge. A steward might
be needed to oversee a storehouse if such were to be had
by a village. The particular office to which these Peli
were appointed would depend on the function and nature
of the stewardship. A bishop or overseer of a storehouse
would most likely be appointed from the office of
Patriarchal Elder of the 4th step of this Patriarchal
order. The reference below are the words of
Mathoni who is one of the 3 Nephites. And I quote
him: "Behold, they may also make regulation of their own
ways, and they may not retain all things exactly as you
After the flood and the sinking of the
Lemurian continent called Pan, The three kingdoms of
heaven were established in the earths astral realms of
atmospheria. This happened somewhere around 24 thousand
years ago. This is as described in the book of Oahspe:
E, Etherea; B, periphery of the earth’s vortex. This line was called by the ancients the Bridge Of Chinvat. All within this area is called Atmospherea. The center is the earth, 1, 1, 1; O, the ocean. 1‘s, 2‘s and 3 represent different atmospherean plateaux. The O, O, O, with a line through it, represents atmospherean oceans.
