Behold My son, for art thou not My son? For did not I begat thee in the spirit world, and did not I give unto thee My love, and were ye not nurtured by My side?
Ye have asked Me concerning the book called, Evolution of Man, and in accordance with thy desire I will tell thee concerning this book.
Behold I say unto you, there are many truths contained in this book, but they are mingled together with false precepts.
I say unto you, there are many on this earth who die and enter into the spirit world and in the spirit they seek out their own kind, and as they have allowed themselves to be deceived in the flesh, they follow after the same pattern in the spirit world.
They have left this mortal existence, and the same spirit that they had here has followed them into the spirit world.
For that which they have desired on this earth continueth with them in the hereafter, and they continue on in their deceits and lies, following after the father of lies, even the adversary.
For even in the spirit world men have their agency, for this is not taken from them through time and throughout all eternity.
And in the spirit world they continue on in the same beliefs that they had in this life, for have I not said that those that are filthy shall remain filthy still?
And those on the earth like the Witch of Endor have certain knowledge and seek knowledge, but not by Me saith the LORD, they seek out those spirits who while on this earth in mortality were deceived, for their minds are alike.
10 And even as a righteous man is able to receive revelation from God, even so can an evil man receive revelation from the adversary; and if he receiveth revelation from the adversary it shall contain some truth, nevertheless, it shall contain error also.
11 Behold, man is not alone on this earth, for he is surrounded by spirits, and when men give up their free agency through sin, the spirits of the adversary taketh hold of them, and he binds them with fetters that can be broken only through the principle of faith on the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance, and baptism by water and by fire, for there is no other way.
12 And if he continueth in the faith unto the end, he shall be saved in My kingdom, saith the LORD.
13 Behold, it saith in this book that the Gods experimented with life forms and matter.
14 Behold I say unto you, they experiment not, for there is no experimentation necessary; for all things are organized according to law, and if the law is obeyed experimentation is not necessary, for experimentation taketh place only when laws are not known, and when laws are known experimentation is not required.
15 I say unto you, that no being is endowed with power to create unless he hath that power and authority given him by God.
16 Behold, the adversary desireth this power, but it is denied him, therefore he desireth to destroy, for he is in opposition to God.
17 Behold, if ye keep all the commandments, ye shall receive knowledge upon knowledge until ye shall know the truth of all things, and become even as the Father.
18 Behold, these doctrines contained in this book teacheth men not to pray to God, but to himself, and it bindeth his tongue--which nullifies My word which saith, "Call upon the Father in the name of the Son, and it shall be given unto thee by the power of the Holy Ghost, and by this power ye shall know the truth of all things."

19 Say unto My maidservant Hope, that the adversary deceiveth her and desireth her soul, and leadeth her upon forbidden paths; and many of the things she has learned are true, but many are false, and from these false principles she must repent and turn unto Me, saith the LORD.
20 Otherwise she will be cast off and not enter into My kingdom.
Even so, Amen.
