Spencer W. Kimball’s Journals Online

A friend sent me a post from Reddit yesterday by u/Texastruthseeker about the Church’s recent release of Spencer W. Kimball’s journals, available now online. I was curious enough by the content of the post that I went to the Church’s website to take a look. Here’s the post from Reddit:

President Nelson ghostwrote the foreword to his autobiography (attributed to Spencer W. Kimball)

Some big news today with the church releasing digitized versions of Spencer W. Kimball’s personal journals. https://history.churchofjesuschrist.org/blog/spencer-w-kimball-journals-now-accessible?lang=eng

I’ve been jumping around looking for anything interesting. Toward the end of his life the details are very brief each day but I was intrigued by the entries from 2/7/1979 and 2/27/1979:

Kimball: (Russell) “Nelson brought ‘a suggested foreword he has written for me that he would like approval to use in a compliation (sic) he has prepare on his life’s story. He has written a very interesting account of his activities, some which included experiences with me, and I assured him I would read it and give him approval to use it.’ [[a fulsome foreword for a man to write about himself!!]]”

I had to look up fulsome. Definition: complimentary or flattering to an excessive degree.

So what’s in the foreword Nelson wrote about himself on behalf of President Kimball?

By President Spencer W. Kimball

This book, the engaging record of the life and experiences of Russell Marion Nelson, is a fulfillment of a great dream. In these pages he has set forth a chronicle of his noble parentage and crystallized the many experiences of himself and his adorable family. This work will bring joy and peace and happiness to its readers.

The first time I saw the Nelson family was at a stake conference meeting in 1964. Eight daughters were singing a song, accompanied by their mother, Dantzel. I was amazed and pleased, and I thought, “What a perfect family! What beautiful parents! And what delightful children to grow up in one household.” I have known them from that time forward, and now there are nine daughters and one son. Brother Nelson has always been a family man first, and now all his family unite to bring him honor.

I owe much to him as a doctor. It was in 1971 in England that I first spoke to him of my heart problems. When we returned to the United States, investigation showed that I had problems with a deteriorating valve in my heart and an obstruction in an artery. I felt my life slipping away, and I wondered if perhaps the time had come for a younger man to enter the Quorum of the Twelve and do the work I could no longer do. But at the inspired insistence of President Harold B. Lee, I was prompted to press on. Therefore, my life was placed in the hands of this young doctor, in whom we noted a sweet Spirituality. Because of his skill as a surgeon—one who trusts in the power of the priesthood and relies on the Spirit of the Lord—my life was spared, even though the risks were very great for a man of my seventy-seven years.

We became close as I recovered from the open-heart surgery that he performed perfectly. Whenever I became discouraged, there was always his sweet, understanding spirit to buoy me up.

Then President Lee died in December 1973. We never thought it could happen, for he was younger than I and seemingly in good health; therefore, we were all taken by surprise. Brother Nelson, of his own accord, came to my side immediately in case he should be needed. I appreciated his thoughtfulness very much…

It pleases me very much to note that he has done a superb work in assembling the information to bring this book into existence…It seems to me that it has been done beautifully and without flaw. Long will his children and their posterity honor this great man, and long will they remember that he followed the precepts of his Lord through his prophets…

Salt Lake City, Utah March 1979


I will let each of you draw your own conclusions.

While I was online in President Kimball’s journals, I took some time to read through a few years worth of entries. In doing so, I was struck by how generally uneventful the entries were. It seemed like President Kimball spent most days at luncheons and dinners and going to funerals or the hospital to see a family member or member of the Quorum. Or attending a gala or award ceremony… or at the Gym, getting a massage…

I understand that the President of the Church fulfills an executive leadership role and that his schedule will involve some of the above mentioned types of events. And I recognize that a man of his age would be busy in hospitals for himself and visiting others. But, what surprised me was that in the many years of personal journals I read, the president of the Church did not mention the Lord, the atonement, faith, hope, charity, the Book of Mormon, blessings of healings, revelations, visions, dreams, prophecy, the scriptures, or hardly anything of a spiritual nature whatsoever. Not from what I could see.

Hiding Skeletons

While his friends and family went to war or were serving missions, young college student Russell M. Nelson was being initiated into a secret society known as Skull and Bones at the University of Utah. Founded at Yale University in 1832, Skull and Bones has become known as a very dark and controversial organization.

Rumors abound of their thievery (they were sued in 2009 for allegedly stealing the skull of the famous Apache Indian, Geronimo), blood drinking, obsession with death and specifically infanticide, lewd acts while naked in a coffin while others watch, and potentially homosexual and other satanic rituals. One known recording exists from inside what they call The Tomb. Viewer discretion is advised.

You can learn more about Skull and Bones in this recently published video:

Skull and Bones is said to have ties to the Illuminati and is said to exist for the purpose of raising up leaders to eventually establish a One World Order that it controls. President Taft and both President Bushes and their predecessor Senator Prescott Bush and John Kerry are just a few of said members.

For any assuming Russell M. Nelson’s membership in this controversial organization is unfounded, President Nelson himself admits to having joined Skull and Bones while at the U in his autobiography entitled From Heart to Heart, published in 1979. The only challenge is it’s become increasingly hard to procure a copy. Interestingly the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not sell or print their own president’s autobiography. Why would that be? It’s not available at Deseret Book or Seagull Book. It is available on Amazon however, for $2,495. Yes, that’s right. In fact, one seller has their copy listed for $2,950. Given the “demand” for the book, one would think the Church would do well to make copies available. Just as a side note, President Benson’s book An Enemy Hath Done This is still available on Amazon for $34 and at Deseret Book for $19.95.

From his chapter entitled University Life and Courtship Days on page 48, Nelson writes in his own words:

“University life was wonderful and successful. On April 3, 1944 I was elected president of the Sigma Chi fraternity. I was also later elected to the honorary societies of Skull and Bones in the junior year, Owl and Key in the senior year, the Beehive Honorary Society in the senior year, and at graduation time to the honorary scholastic societies of Phi Kappa Phi and Phi Beta Kappa. I was awarded my B.A. degree in June commencement of 1945, and there on hand was Dantzel, along with our dear parents, brothers, sisters, and other relatives who always did so much to encourage me. Dantzel got her bachelor’s degree a year later in 1946.”

In a cursory search on LDS.org, one finds no mention of their Church leader’s autobiography nor is there any mention of President Nelson’s membership in Skull and Bones, which by the way, is said to be a life long commitment. Apparently there are oaths one must take that endure to the grave and beyond.

I’m now trying to confirm whether or not Skull and Bones members are in fact required to give all their wealth to the Skull and Bones organization upon death, which is something I’ve read. Wouldn’t that be an interesting plot twist, given that the entire wealth of the Church is currently in the name of Skull and Bones member Russell Marion Nelson. It seems certain that at a minimum, according to the research done by the authors of the above video, that initiates are given assurances that they will always be “taken care of” by their order… whatever that means.

Is it possible that as a result of some kind of secret oath and sworn loyalty, that this dark organization now has an undue influence in some of the Church’s more recent decisions to compel untested global vaccinations and compliance, to refuse to offer religious exemptions for the same or to come out in open and excited support for legalizing gay marriage?

Without question, President Nelson, has pushed to be seen as the world’s Global Faith Leader. Coincidence? Or is something amiss.

We all have our skeletons, but this is one that I think the Church needs to explain, along with why it’s trying to starve / destroy the existence of President Nelson’s autobiography. Members are losing faith in Church leaders precisely because they seek to hide the truth and their works are in the dark.  2 Ne. 11:21 RE
