Tip of the Day, May 26

26 May

May 26 – Ps. 139:14; “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

Ask the Mormon why God would place this scripture in the Bible when they believe He also wrote the various literatures the church produces about non-whites.  Why has none of the Book of Abraham been changed since the church accepted blacks into the priesthood?  The teachings are still the same.  How can this book be true if God changed His mind?

“It has been pointed out that the mark of Cain was a black skin and that he received it as a symbol of protection. The curse of Cain was that of a Son of Perdition with its accompanying loss of Priesthood, and damnation.”  The Church and the Negro, pg. 17.

    Others speak to this better than I can. (I am an old southern boy and even though I know the habits of thought I learned as a boy are wrong this is one old habit I have not yet mastered.)

    “Sometimes God withholds certain blessings from certain people without explaining why He does this. Sometimes this is a willful decision on His part expressed via direct revelation to his prophet. At other times, God allows his prophets to act as they feel best. In the case of the priesthood ban, we do not know which of these scenarios is applicable. What we do know, however, is that the ban was lifted by revelation in God’s due time.”
