Brigham Young’s Contradictions in Racist Teachings

31 December

Today we’re wondering how Brigham Young declared all non-white people unworthy of salvation. At the same time he instructed members of the Church to intermarry with Native Americans…

The Teachings of President Brigham Young, Vol. 3 1852-1854, p. 43; “…this people that are commonly called negroes are the children of old Cain. I know they are…” (Also see Speech by Utah Gov. Brigham Young in Joint Session of the Legislature, 1852)

The Teachings of President Brigham Young, Vol. 3 1852-1854, p. 44; “But let me tell you further. Let my seed mingle with the seed of Cain, that brings the curse upon me, and upon my generations, — we will reap the same rewards with Cain.”

Would you trust the man who called himself a prophet while declaring God’s creation unworthy?

Where in the Bible does it say blacks are the seed of Cain? Another reason to disregard Young’s statement is found in his contradictory doctrines…

The Abominations of Mormonism Exposed, pp. 58-59; “We are now going to the Lamanites, to whom we intend to be messengers of instruction… We will show them that in consequence of their transgressions a curse has been inflicted upon them – in the darkness of their skins. We will have intermarriages with them, they marrying our young women, and we taking their young squaws to wife. By these means it is the will of the Lord that the curse of their color shall be removed and they restored to their pristine beauty…”

What is painfully obvious in all this is how they ignored what God said in 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 those who continue to believe these lies, and ask the Mormon you know for their opinion about it!

With Love in Christ;


1 Cor 1:18
