10th LDS Prophet’s Lies and Denial of Racist Teachings

20 February

Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth; avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip.’ Proverbs 4:24

The Way to Perfection, pp. 101-102; “Not only was Cain called upon to suffer, but because of his wickedness he became the father of an inferior race. A curse was placed upon him and that curse has been continued through his lineage and must do so while time endures.” – Joseph Fielding Smith, 1949
Answers to Gospel Questions, Vol. 4, p. 169; “The Latter-day Saints, so commonly called ‘Mormons,’ have no animosity towards the Negro. Neither have they described him as belonging to an ‘inferior race.’” – Joseph Fielding Smith, 1963

Exodus 20:16; “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.”

Not only did Mr. Smith describe African Americans as belonging to an inferior race, he actually claimed Cain was the father of the inferior race. How did this man sleep at night?

Teachers are held to a higher standard based on the obvious responsibility placed on their shoulders to not lead people astray.

What was this man not thinking when he proclaimed the Church has never taught this racist doctrine? The first Mormon reference listed above was a staple in my Utah Mormon diet.

For what it’s worth, the average member of the Church won’t hear of things like the 2nd reference. They’re too busy going to church, and trying to fulfill all the needful salvation items on the checklist for godhood status.

Lastly, whatever happened to Acts 17:26?

“And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation”.

Please pray for racism to be completely eradicated in the hearts and minds of all Mormons, no matter their background.

With Love in Christ;


1 Cor 1:18
