March 24 – Luke describes the Virgin Mary to his readers as such: “And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women”. Luke 1:28.
Although the Mormon Church allowed people of color into the Church, their teachings have not changed. They’ve had more than 25 years to change their scripture, but it’s still the same. This is confusing to the Mormon.
How reasonable is it that Mary, a young girl from the Middle East, would be fair and white?
1 Nephi 11:13 describes to the Mormon what Mary looked like. “…and in the city of Nazareth I beheld a virgin, and she was exceedingly fair and white.”
November 29 – John 2:7-9; “Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom.”
Here we have the first miracle of Jesus! Isn’t it an amazing passage to think upon? There are many subjects to study within this small passage of scripture. From the meaning of the water in the waterpots; to the actual miracle itself and showing the servants that He had arrived! Mary obviously knew and now the world was about to experience the miracle of how He could change their lives. The LDS Church has tried to make this miracle into something it is not; degrading the Lord.
“It will be borne in mind that once on a time, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and on a careful reading of that transaction, it will be discovered that no less a person than Jesus Christ was married on that occasion. If he was never married, his intimacy with Mary and Martha, and the other Mary also whom Jesus loved, must have been highly unbecoming and improper to say the best of it….I will venture to say that if Jesus Christ were now to pass through the most pious countries in Christendom with a train of women…and unmarried, or even married, he would be mobbed, tarred, and feathered, and rode, not on an ass, but on a rail. What did the old Prophet mean when he said (speaking of Christ), “He shall see his seed, prolong his days, &c.” Did Jesus consider it necessary to fulfil every righteous command or requirement of his Father? He most certainly did…Was it God’s commandment to man, in the beginning, to multiply and replenish the earth? None can deny this, neither that it was a righteous command…Did Christ come to destroy the law or the Prophets, or to fulfil them? He came to fulfil. Did he multiply, and did he see his seed? Did he honour his Father’s law by complying with it, or did he not? Others may do as they like, but I will not charge our Saviour with neglect or transgression in this or any other duty.” Orson Hyde, Journal of Discourses, 26 vols, 4: 260.
