False Prophecies of the Mormon Church

Civil War won’t Free the Slaves

Journal of Discourses 10:250; “Will the present struggle free the slave? No.…Treat the slaves kindly and let them live, for Ham must be the servant of servants until the curse is removed. Can you destroy the decrees of the Almighty? You cannot.”— Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 6, 1863

Oops. 

Sadly the Mormon will tell you that Young was just giving his personal opinion. The problem with this theory is Mr. Young proclaimed on several occasions that whatever he spoke was to be considered scripture. 

In one fell swoop he uttered two false prophecies. The Civil War did indeed grant freedom for the slaves and the decrees of the Mormon almighty were altered in 1978.
