Philippians 4:8”Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

For What Purpose, pp. 2-5

President Alvin R. Dyer of the First Presidency

18 March 1962 Mission Conference Olso, Norway

“…I want to talk to you a little bit now about something that is not missionary work, and what I say is not to be given to our investigators by any matter of means. …

Why is it that you were born today instead of 2,000 years ago? …Why is it that you are white and not colored? Have you ever asked yourselves that question? Who had anything to do with your being born into the Church and not born a Chinese or a Hindu or a Negro?

Is God such an unjust person that He would make you white and free and make a Negro cursed under the cursing of Cain that he could not hold the Priesthood of God? Who do you think decided and what is the reason behind it? …

I want to talk to you just briefly about this, not with any information that you would convey to your investigators, but that you, yourselves, may have a better understanding of what we are doing in the mission field today, and why it is that we come to you with encouragement to work with all your strength to get people into the Church…” (more…)

Romans 1:25 “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has tried once again to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. They’ve gone to extraordinary lengths using Gladys Knight in a full scale musical production to pat themselves on the back for allowing blacks into the priesthood 40 years ago. (more…)

“…anyone who claims superiority under the Father’s plan because of characteristics like race, sex, nationality, language, or economic circumstances is morally wrong and does not understand the Lord’s true purpose for all of our Father’s children.” – Quentin L. Cook

Mormon Newsroom, ‘Be One,’ April 30, 2018; “In scripture, Jesus tells us to “be one; and if ye are not one ye are not mine.” “Be One” is the theme of a First Presidency-sponsored event on June 1, 2018, celebrating the 1978 revelation on the priesthood on its 40th anniversary. BeOne.lds.org has been created to provide more information about the event…

Although attitudes and choices such as anger, bigotry, racism, prejudice and intolerance cause separation and division, fortunately, prophets have taught that “a great day of unity is coming.”

…While the June celebration will hail the history of black Mormon pioneers and reaffirm the reality that “all are alike unto God” in His global family, the event is intended to be much more than a celebration. It will also be a renewal of our collective commitment to pursue oneness in our relationships with each other and with heaven.

President M. Russell Ballard said, “We need to embrace God’s children compassionately and eliminate any prejudice, including racism, sexism, and nationalism. Let it be said that we truly believe the blessings of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ are for every child of God.”

Added Elder Quentin L. Cook, “anyone who claims superiority under the Father’s plan because of characteristics like race, sex, nationality, language, or economic circumstances is morally wrong and does not understand the Lord’s true purpose for all of our Father’s children.”  (more…)

Acts 17:26; “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation”.

The phrase ‘if a picture could paint a thousand words’ seems to be an apt way to introduce events that took place in the LDS Church this past weekend. Imagine the story a picture would tell with the new set of LDS apostles

Mr. Gerrit Gong, and Mr. Ulisses Soares are the first non-white men appointed as LDS apostles. Mr. Gong is from China, and Mr. Soares, Brazil.

The appointment of the two men was indeed historic, but not in the way the Church has bragged about it. Once again, they’ve proven to be false prophets and apostles.

Today we’re wondering how Brigham Young declared all non-white people unworthy of salvation. At the same time he instructed members of the Church to intermarry with Native Americans…

The Teachings of President Brigham Young, Vol. 3 1852-1854, p. 43; “…this people that are commonly called negroes are the children of old Cain. I know they are…” (Also see Speech by Utah Gov. Brigham Young in Joint Session of the Legislature, 1852)

The Teachings of President Brigham Young, Vol. 3 1852-1854, p. 44; “But let me tell you further. Let my seed mingle with the seed of Cain, that brings the curse upon me, and upon my generations, — we will reap the same rewards with Cain.”

Today we’re doing things a little differently!

The reason for this stems from an e-mail I received from Twitter notifying me about some of the responses I received from my post yesterday, ‘Mormon Church Ignores God’s Directives and Heeds Joe Smith’s Racism’.

Now before we get into this, I want to be sure I make something abundantly clear. I’ve addressed each of the concerns in his exchanges and feel that what we’ve presented is to the point, and shown that we haven’t personally attacked anyone.

 Today we’re checking out three significant fails of the not-so-inspired prophet, Wilford Woodruff. Reading the things this guy had to say reminded me once again of how grateful I am that Jesus saved me!!

Remember, truth haters and deceivers have always been around so keep Peter’s warning in mind!

2 Peter 2:3; “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”
