The following is an excerpt from Women of Mormondom, written by Relief Society President, Eliza Roxcy Snow in 1887.
Women of Mormondom, p.540 “The mother of Jesus a virgin of the house of David, and not a flaming goddess from the skies. From woman, the love of Jesus for humanity. From her his sympathies for the race. ‘Twas she, in her son, who forgave sin; she who bade the sinner go and sin no more; she who wept over Jerusalem as a mother weepeth over her young And it was woman, in her son, who died upon the cross for the sins of the world!
It was not God the father who in Jesus died; not he who passed the dark hour of nature’s struggle in the garden; not God who prayed, “Take away” this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, “but what thou wilt.” ‘Twas woman who was left alone on the cross; she, in her son, who cried, “My God! my God! why hast thou forsaken me?”
Love is of the woman. That is the great lesson which the human nature of Jesus teaches; and it is that element of her nature which shall save the world.” – Eliza Roxcy Snow, 1887
Hebrews 1:3 “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high”.
There have been few, if any, writings more blasphemous than Ms. Snow’s. With the stroke of a pen she denounced Jesus, and filled the shoes of a false prophet. Being in the position of the Relief Society President holds a lot of responsibility, and for some reason the Church continues to condone this behavior by not denouncing her theories.
They should keep Paul’s warning in mind …
‘And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.’ 1 Tim. 2:14
Shame on them!
Let us be diligent in praying that Mormons will see Ms. Snow’s beliefs, and turn to the Lord!
With Love in Christ;
