Facsimile 2 Side by sideAs a Mormon I remember seeing the Egyptian hieroglyphics in the Pearl of Great Price.  Not knowing what they meant or their purpose I wrote them off as a spooky drawing of the Mormon god I didn’t know.  It wasn’t until I began my own study of the Church that I began wondering what Egyptian hieroglyphics had to do with God’s word.

Update:  I wrote this article in August 2013.  Now it’s March 2014 and I need to update something! Just two short months after I published this I received some news from a doctor of mine that answered a lot of questions for me personally and the discovery with proof, if you will, mandates that I present an update.  I had some DNA tests done and long story short my curiosities were confirmed.  I’m half black.  So there’s my news – praise God I wasn’t imagining things and the proof as they say is in the pudding – or in this case my wild hairdos!

Racist Mormon Scripture“Regardless of the color of our skin, of the shape of our eyes, of the language we speak, we all are sons and daughters of God and must reach out to one another with love and concern…Wherever we live we can be friendly neighbors.” – President Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign, May 2005

“All Are Alike Unto God” is the title of a speech given at BYU by the LDS Apostle Bruce McConkie in August of 1978.  The speech was given as an address to members of the Church to explain the recent change in Church membership requirements.  Yet oddly enough, neither the speech nor the prophecy really changed the heart of Mormonism.

Lies Told by Mormon Leaders

The other day I received an LDS Gem via e-mail and I have to say that it got me moving quick. It’s not often I have that reaction, thus my response here. The topic for their daily gem was “exhort them to pray”.  I thought hey that’s pretty cool, let’s take a look!

Mormon Dilemma 97

If the following statement made by the Mormon Apostle Richard Scott is true then why are there two completely different accounts given of creation in the Standard works of Mormonism?  Here’s what he said at the October 2011 General Conference:

Because scriptures are generated from inspired communication through the Holy Ghost, they are pure truth. We need not be concerned about the validity of concepts contained in the standard works since the Holy Ghost has been the instrument which has motivated and inspired those individuals who have recorded the scriptures.
