Colossians 3:16; “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”

LDS_HymnbookBefore we examine the LDS hymn we’re posting today, let’s take a good look at what God has said in His word.

You’ll notice the first eight words of this verse is an instruction we should all take note of. The music we allow to run through our heads can either lead us to, or away, from Him.

By default, Mormons have already failed miserably with that admonition. They don’t allow the word of Christ to dwell within them because they’ve rejected it.

The second part of this verse tells us to teach and admonish through psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.

Mormon Decisions 10Comprehensive History of the Church, Vol.2, Ch.47, p.128; “This work is rich both in doctrine and in historical incidents. Of the latter the fact of the large influence (if not identity) of Egyptian religious ideas in Chaldea in the days of Abraham is established; the descent of the black race, Negro, from Cain, the first murderer; the preservation of that race through the flood by the wife of Ham–“Egyptus,” which in the Chaldean signifies “Egypt,” “which signifies that which is forbidden”–the descendants of “Egyptus” were cursed as pertaining to the priesthood–that is, they were barred from holding that divine power; the origin also of the Egyptians–these things, together with the account of Abraham migrating from Chaldea to Egypt, constitute the chief historical items that are contained in the book.”

Reuben Clark’s phrase.)” – D. Michael Quinn

Mormon Decisions 10Messenger and Advocate, Vol. 2, No. 7, pp 289, 300, April 1836; “I  am aware, that many who profess to preach the gospel, complain against their brethren of the same faith, who reside in the south, and are ready to withdraw the hand of fellowship because they will not renounce the principle of slavery and raise their voice against every thing of the kind. This must be a tender point, and one which should call forth the candid reflection of all men, and especially before they advance in an opposition calculated to lay waste the fair States of the South, and set loose, upon the world a community of people who might peradventure, overrun our country and violate the most sacred principles of human society, – chastity and virtue.” – Joseph Smith

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 10David O. McKay diary, Feb. 14, 1964 as quoted in Anderson, Devery; The Development of LDS Temple Worship, 1846-2000: A Documentary History; “Temples * Book of Decisions for [Temple] Presidents * Presidents [Hugh B.] Brown and [N. Eldon] Tanner reported to me that they had gone through the manuscript of the proposed book of decisions as prepared by Elders Howard W. Hunter, ElRay L. Christiansen and Alvin R. Dyer, and had marked those items which they felt needed [a] decision by me. The matters were presented and I approved as follows: [clarification about sealing of children, bic, etc..] … It was suggested that the ordinance of baptism for members of the negro race be performed by others than negroes if this can be accomplished without offense…” – Today in Mormon History Blogspot

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 22:173; “The Lamanites, now a down-trodden people, are a remnant of the house of Israel. The curse of God has followed them as it has done the Jews, though the Jews have not been darkened in their skin as have the Lamanites. The fate of the Jews in this respect is a standing monument to all infidelity.” – Wilford Woodruff, Salt Lake City, June 12, 1881

salt lake mormon temple 2Interview with Wesley P. Walters and Chris Vlachos, August 16, 1978; “Down in Brazil, there is so much Negro blood in the population there that it’s hard to get leaders that don’t have Negro blood in them. We just built a temple down there. It’s going to be dedicated in October. All those people with Negro blood in them have been raising money to build that temple. If we don’t change, then they can’t even use it. Well, Brother Kimball worried about it, and he prayed a lot about it.” – LeGrand Richards

salt lake mormon temple 2Juvenile Instructor Vol. 3, No. 18, September 15, 1868, pg 141; “From Caucasian to Negro. A Negro is described as having a black skin, black, woolly hair, projecting jaws, thick lips, a flat nose and receding skull. He is generally well made and robust but with very large hands and feet. In fact, he looks as though he had been put in an oven and burnt to a cinder before he was properly finished making. His hair baked crisp, his nose melted to his face, and the color of his eyes run into the whites. Some men look as if they had only been burned brown; but he appears to have gone a stage further, and been cooked until he was quite black.”

Lee & KathyToday i had the pleasure of receiving an e-mail from Lee Baker, a former Mormon bishop who now works for the Lord!

immediately after reading his note I asked if I could post it on our sites and he said; “YES!”  So here’s his e-mail – I have to say that I admire his ingenuity!  Come alongside us at LAM and pray for him and his wife Kathy won’t you?  Who knows – maybe the Church will take him up on his offer!  🙂  Also  pray for his radio ministry in Liberia as he reaches out to the Mormons there to  help show them the real truth about Mormonism!

As an FYI, I’m putting a warning on this article. The expressions used in Lee’s letter is going to be offensive to some readers so I ask that you look at it in context.  Nothing in his letter denotes racism on his end, rather it is strongly pointing out the racist theology of the Church.

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

1 Cor. 1:18

PS: If you haven’t read his book I highly recommend doing so!  It’s called “Mormonism – A Life Under False Pretenses”.

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.
