Did you know that the Book of Mormon, that is in print today, and given away free by the Mormon Missionaries, is the most Racist set of Scriptures of any Religion in the World?
Hundreds of thousands of Mormons have never really read the Book of Mormon. Which is a bit strange, because the Book of Mormon is the very foundation of the Mormon Faith.
The Book of Mormon clearly states, several times, that Black Skin is a curse from God. Yet the Bible teaches in John 3:16 that God so loved the world…not just the people with white skin.
In the Book of Mormon story, the good, hard-working people are White and the violent and lazy group is Black. The Book of Mormon, 2Nephi 30:6, claims that if the bad Black people repent, then they too will become White like the good people.
The current Book of Mormon warns both groups of people that they should not “Mix” their seed between the Blacks and Whites or God will curse them.
Lee and I have worked very closely with several Black Communities around the world, and we are just astonished, that any person of Color would join the Mormon Church.
We are equally amazed and stunned that any White Mormon would continue to endorse, admire or much less Teach from the Book of Mormon.
The Book of Mormon is wrong, Black Skin is not now and never was a curse from God. The plague of Racism and Bigotry may be promoted within the Book of Mormon, but it is NOT found in the Bible.
Journal of Discourses, vol. 22, pp. 303-304:
“For although they were destroyed in the body, yet when Jesus came and …preached to the spirits in prison that were disobedient in the days of Noah. And then the devil put on a long face and said, I imagined I had got rid of these fellows; but they are going to have a chance yet that I did not think of. And after the flood we are told that the curse that had been pronounced upon Cain was continued through Ham’s wife, as he had married a wife of that seed. And why did it pass through the flood? Because it was necessary that the devil should have a representation upon the earth as well as God; and that man should be a free agent to act for himself, and that all men might have the opportunity of receiving or rejecting the truth, and be governed by it or not according to their wishes and abide the result; and that those who would be able to maintain correct principles under all circumstances, might be able to associate with the Gods in the eternal worlds. It is the same eternal programme. God knew it and Adam knew it.”
