1 John 2:9; “He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.”

 Today in Mormon History; “125 years ago today -Tuesday, March 29th, 1892 — [Abraham H. Cannon] I asked Jos. F. Smith why it was that Ham’s son Canaan was cursed instead of Ham for exposing his Father’s person. He said that the Prophet Joseph is credited with saying that the sin of Ham consisted in trying to castrate his father, Noah, and kill his brothers, Shem and Japeth, so that he might become the head of the nations of the earth. Ham had married a daughter of Cain, and by him the curse was carried through the flood. The seed of this union is the Egyptians, who are not black, but after Ham’s curse, his seed was entirely black. Hence the difference between the races who now inhabit Africa. …”

LDS Official Declaration 2

Blacks get the priesthood newspaper“…Aware of the promises made by the prophets and presidents of the Church who have preceded us that at some time, in God’s eternal plan, all of our brethren who are worthy may receive the priesthood…He has heard our prayers, and by revelation has confirmed that the long-promised day has come…”

James 1:22, 2:8-9; “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.”

1 John 2:9; “He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.”

3-in-1The extra-biblical canon of Mormonism reveals many reasons why the LDS Church isn’t a Christian organization, and our focus today is on one of those reasons.

The racist narrative found in Mormon canon is unlike anything God would condone. The Lord created all men (Gen. 3:20) and from the first two people He created (Adam & Eve), all humanity sprang. See Answeringgenesis.org for more info on the different ‘races’ of mankind.

D and C 132Doctrine and Covenants 134:12; “We believe it just to preach the gospel to the nations of the earth, and warn the righteous to save themselves from the corruption of the world; but we do not believe it right to interfere with bond-servants, neither preach the gospel to, nor baptize them contrary to the will and wish of their masters, nor to meddle with or influence them in the least to cause them to be dissatisfied with their situations in this life, thereby jeopardizing the lives of men; such interference we believe to be unlawful and unjust, and dangerous to the peace of every government allowing human beings to be held in servitude.”

Blacks neutral in the pre-existence?  Maybe not…

Sermons and Missionary Services of Melvin J. Ballard, pgs. 247-248; “Now, my brothers and sisters, I would like you to understand that long before we were born into this earth we were tested and tried in our pre-existence, and the fact that of the thousands of children born today, a certain proportion of them went to the Hottentots of South Africa; thousands went to the Chinese mothers; thousands went to Negro mothers; thousands to beautiful white Latter-day Saint mothers: You cannot tell me that the entire group was just designated, marked, to go where they did, that they were men and women of equal opportunities. There are no infant spirits born. They had a being ages before they came into this life. They appear in infant bodies, but they were tested, proven souls. Therefore, I say to you that long before we came into this life all groups and races of men existed as they exist today. Like attracts like.
