Mormon Decisions 10Messenger and Advocate, vol. 1, July 1835, no. 10; “…and the land was left to the possession of the red men, who were without intelligence, only in the affairs of their wars; and having no records, only preserving their history by tradition from father to son, lost the account of their true origin, and wandered from river to river, from hill to hill, from mountain to mountain, and from sea to sea, till the land was again peopled, in a measure, by a rude, wild, revengeful, warlike and barbarous race. Such are our Indians”.

Mormon Decisions 10There’s been a lot of back and forth arguments going on in the past several weeks between Glenn Beck and numerous Christian conservative organizations.  From Ed Decker with Saints Alive to The Blaze (conservative news portal), many have openly questioned the motives of Liberty University when they invited a Mormon to give the commencement speech for the graduating class of 2014.

Mormon Decisions 10A Comprehensive History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 1: 392 – 393; “It is the Christ’s church in all these respects; but it is an institution which also belongs to the saints. It is their refuge from the confusion and religious doubt of the world. It is their instructor in principle, doctrine, and righteousness. It is their guide in matters of faith and morals. They have a conjoint ownership in it with Jesus Christ, which ownership is recognized in the latter part of the title. “The Church * * * of Latter-day Saints,” is equivalent to “The Church of Jesus Christ,” and “The Church of the Latter-day Saints””.

Glenn Beck peddles David Barton’s rewrite of the NASB to share a Holy America and make some quick bucks

Ed Decker

Glenn BeckAfter hearing Glenn Beck promoting a special kind of bible, I skimmed through the numerous websites promoting the Founders’ Bible and the ministry of David Barton, Glenn Beck’s token Christian Pastor.  The Bible is more a declaration of the holiness of the United Sates of America than a true study bible.

Mormon Decisions 10BYU Speeches, “Mortality and Our Eternal Journey,” January 14, 2003; “Excluding the Atonement, our purpose in coming to earth is the same as the Savior’s. He was born to be a king. If faithful, we also are promised thrones, kingdoms, and principalities (see D&C 132:19). Jesus’ kingdom was not of this world; neither is ours…” – BYU President Merrill J. Bateman

wedding ringsWhile gathering info for our Polygamy and Mormon Church Leaders series I kept noticing a common occurrence in the lives of these men. The issue for this article isn’t about polygamy (that’s for another day), rather my focus is on the age of the girls these men married.  I refer to them as girls because quite frankly that’s what they were; little girls, aka, children.

The last submission for our series included a young girl who was 13 years old when she married Perrigrine Sessions and each time I thought of that scenario I felt physically ill.  Sadly, many of the genealogy sites I referenced contained comments from his descendants who remarked they were surprised that ‘girls were married so young back then’.

Mormon Decisions 10
Doctrinal Commentary on the Pearl of Great Price, p 406-407;
“The position of the Church regarding the Negro may be understood when another doctrine of the Church is kept in mind; namely, that the conduct of spirits in the pre-mortal existence has some determining effect upon the conditions and circumstances under which these spirits take on mortality, and that while the details of the principle have not been made known, the principle itself indicates that the coming to this earth and taking on mortality is a privilege that is given to those who maintain their first estate; and that the worth of the principle is so great that spirits are willing to come to earth and take on bodies no matter what the handicap may be as to the kind of bodies they are to secure; and that among the handicaps, failure of the right to enjoy in mortality the blessings of the priesthood, is a handicap which spirits are willing to assume in order that they might come to earth. Under this principle there is no injustice whatsoever involved in this deprivation as to the holding of the Priesthood by Negroes.” – Hyrum Andrus, 1998

Mormon Decisions 10Of All Things! Classic Quotations of Hugh Nibley, p 76; “Do not begrudge existence to creatures that looked like men long, long ago, nor deny them a place in God’s affection or even a right to exaltation, for our scriptures allow them such. Nor am I overly concerned as to just when they might have lived, for their world is not our world. They have all gone away long before our people ever appeared. God assigned them their proper times and functions. “Before Adam,” CWHN 1:82” – Hugh Nibley, edited by FARMS, 1991

Mormon Decisions 10Conference Report, April 1939, Morning Meeting, p 57; “The negro is an unfortunate man. He has been given a black skin. But that is as nothing compared with that greater handicap that he is not permitted to receive the Priesthood and the ordinances of the temple, necessary to prepare men and women to enter into and enjoy a fulness of glory in the celestial kingdom. What is the reason for this condition, we ask, and I find it to my satisfaction to think that as spirit children of our Eternal Father they were not valiant in the fight” – George F. Richards

Mormon Decisions 10Selected Writings of Robert L. Millet: Gospel Scholars Series, p 190; “The four Gospels are particularly plain in setting forth the true nature of God and the various labors of the members of the Godhead. Indeed, one has to become involved in a stretching series of doctrinal maneuvers in order to derive the concept of Trinity or of a triune God in the New Testament…

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000The LDS OT Sunday school lesson for week six made me feel like I was in elementary school once again.  The way the Church presents their lessons have been a source of wonder for Melissa and me once we got going on these things and the reason why is because of their material.

Mormon Decisions 10The Three Kingdoms of Heaven; “Joseph and Sidney saw the terrestrial kingdom of heaven. People in the terrestrial kingdom were good people on earth, but they did not have faith in Jesus and did not obey all of the commandments.

Some of the people in the terrestrial kingdom did not believe the gospel when they heard it on earth but did accept it after they died. These people may see Jesus, but they cannot live with Him or Heavenly Father.”
