Mormon Decisions 10D&C 112:29; “And he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, and he that believeth not, and is not baptized, shall be damned.”

Mormon Doctrine, p 81; “Thus, in the full sense, the faithful members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are the only true believers in the world today, just as the apostolic converts of the early Christian Era were the only true believers in that day.

Mormon Decisions 10Today we’re mixing things up again! I’m dividing this dilemma in two parts so let’s go!

Where Is Wisdom?, p 389-390; “…the writer calls attention to the well-known distinct primary divisions of the human race now on the earth, namely, the Caucasian, the Mongolian, and the Negroid; and that these branches of mankind differ not only in bodily appearance but especially in mental qualities.
