Angels Handshakes and Red Haired Angels – Mormon Quotes

D&C 129:1-3; There are two kinds of beings in heaven, namely: Angels, who are resurrected personages, having bodies of flesh and bones—For instance, Jesus said: Handle me and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.  3 Secondly: the spirits of just men made perfect, they who are not resurrected, but inherit the same glory.

Teachings of the Doctrine and Covenants, pg. 38; Once a woman claimed a revelation for the guidance of the Church. According to her account, a heavenly being appeared to her and personally gave the alleged instructions. The Prophet Joseph asked her the one question, “What was the color of the angel’s hair?” And when her reply was “Red,” the Prophet remarked: “There are no red-headed angels.”” – William Berrett

1 John 4:1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

First of all, Jesus was not a resurrected angel personage.  Second of all those who have died are in paradise with Jesus right now, not out roaming the earth – Luke 16:19-31And last but certainly not least – RED HAIR???  Honestly, this guy’s imagination was off the charts.

Angels & Handshakes

History of the Church 5:267; When a messenger comes, saying he has a message from God, offer him your hand, and request him to shake hands with you. If he be an angel he will do so, and you will feel his hand. If he be the spirit of a just man made perfect, he will come in his glory; for that is the only way he can appear. Ask him to shake hands with you, but he will not move, because it is contrary to the order of heaven for a just man to deceive; but he will still deliver his message. If it be the devil as an angel of light, when you ask him to shake hands he will offer you his hand, and you will not feel anything; you may therefore detect him. These are three grand keys whereby you may know whether any administration is from God.

James 4:7-8Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Smith should’ve memorized James 4.  Resist the devil indeed!

    Let’s remain hopeful that because the ‘Mormons’ are all so terribly misled; as so many other ‘Christians’ seem preoccupied in pointing out; that the Mormon’s poor miserable souls will be included in the saving grace that will come to those when “all knees shall bow, and all tounges confess that Jesus is LORD”.

    Are all redheads evil? What color hair do Angel’s have? These prejudices are confounding it’s like saying a whole race is evil and not worthy.
