132 [Gospel = Social] Order 2 Feb 2022
Ernstraudian philosophy does not brook top-down authoritarianism. It is bottom-up shared experience, organized voluntarily and only to the extent that optimizes equal distribution of spiritual and material quality of life customized to every individual. Its success is happiness, never money, as elaborated in article 27.
My early exposure to social justice was the LDS scriptures that teach equality. They conflate spiritual and material well-being. My understanding applies these teachings alike to our presently visible world and the eternal progression hereafter (article 52).
20 But it is not given that one man should possess that which is above another, wherefore the world lieth in sin.
6 For if ye are not equal in earthly things ye cannot be equal in obtaining heavenly things;
19 Every man seeking the interest of his neighbor, and doing all things with an eye single to the glory of God.
16 But it must needs be done in mine own way; and behold this is the way that I, the Lord, have decreed to provide for my saints, that the poor shall be exalted, in that the rich are made low.
17 For the earth is full, and there is enough and to spare; yea, I prepared all things, and have given unto the children of men to be agents unto themselves.
This is of course the foundation for the blog opening:
Human: Thank you God for all my blessings, but why are you letting some children starve?
God: You are my apprentice. I attached their portion to yours so you can learn to distribute. You are letting them starve.
Three degrees of perception
· Those who make things happen (celestial).
· Those who watch things happen (terrestrial).
· Those who wonder what happened (telestial).
Here or hereafter, beings are separated by their perceptions, not their physical locations. (See also "Three Degrees" in article 104.)
Ernstraudian philosophy conflates theological and humanist expressions of unitary truth. Please allow me to mix the languages freely. I am being consistent speaking as a future god while also speaking as a nontheist.

Today’s article quotes scriptures about equality that contributed significantly to Ernstraudian philosophy, conflating spiritual and material quality of life. Heavenly benefits are available now to those who live the heavenly principles. The article goes on to liken the LDS doctrine of three degrees of glory to the three types of behavior we find on this earth: make things happen, watch things happen, wonder what happened. Theological and humanist expressions can be remarkably equivalent.
