Curse of Cain, Blacks, Satan Needed a Representative on Earth

Journal of Discourses 22:336-337; “Why is it, in fact, that we should have a devil? Why did not the Lord kill him long ago? Because he could not do without him. He needed the devil and a great many of those who do his bidding just to keep men straight, that we may learn to place our dependence upon God, and trust in Him, and to observe his laws and keep his commandments. When he destroyed the inhabitants of the antediluvian world, he suffered a descendant of Cain to come through the flood in order that he might be properly represented upon the earth.” – John Taylor, Grantsville, Utah, October 29, 1882

January 8 — Free Agency. Joshua 24:14-15; “Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (more…)

Message from the angel Gabriel told Joseph:

Matthew 1:21; “Call his name Jesus for he will save his people from their sins…” 

Message from the angel of light Moroni told Joseph Smith:

Joseph Smith History 1:33; “…my name should be had for good and evil among all nations, kindreds, and tongues…”

The one sure thing that hasn’t changed since Matthew put ink to papyri is the message he recorded that came from God’s angel, Gabriel. The story hasn’t changed. You won’t find a reputable source divulging any information outside what we read in God’s word. While it sounds simplistic, it had to be one of the most profound messages known to mankind.

‘Call His name Jesus’…is the segue to discovering how God intervened on man’s behalf through the soon-to-be-born child, Jesus.

1 John 2:29; “If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.”

salt lake mormon temple 2Today we’re examining questionable comments (a-hem, lies) the LDS Church told in a commentary for one of their standard works; the Pearl of Great Price. The irony in this writing, and those of other LDS authorities couldn’t be richer, and the longer we looked, the worse it got. Please, don’t forget to pray for them! Pray also other Christians will recall what John said in his epistle so they don’t get fooled into believing the lies.

The passage we’ve used is listed below, followed by a few questions and comments from the points we’re looking at today. The strange part about this is how they accused Satan of lying to Eve, yet they’re the guilty party. We’re not defending Satan mind you! We just wondering if they’re ever using the Bible…at all… As you read through this, see how many of their lies you pick up on.

BTW – this is one of the most demonic, outright evil things I’ve seen in Mormon writings to date. I shudder to think of the impact it will have on those who believe this.

Pearl of Great Price Commentary, p. 146; “The devil in tempting Eve told a truth when he said unto her that when she should eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil they should become as Gods. He told the truth in telling that, but he accompanied it with a lie as he always does. He never tells the complete truth. He said that they should not die. The Father had said that they should die. The devil had to tell a lie in order to accomplish his purposes; but there was some truth in his statement. Their eyes were opened. They had a knowledge of good and evil just as the Gods have. They became as Gods; for that is one of the features, one of the peculiar attributes of those who attain unto that glory—they understand the difference between good and evil.” (George Q. Cannon, Gospel Truth, 1:16.)” – Milton R. Hunter
