Revelations; Past Revelations don’t Matter
All Are Alike Unto God, Bruce McConkie Speech at BYU, June 1978; “We get our truth and our light line upon line and precept upon precept. We have now had added a new flood of intelligence and light on this particular subject, and it erases all the darkness and all the views and all the thoughts of the past. They don’t matter any more. It doesn’t make a particle of difference what anybody ever said about the Negro matter before the first day of June of this year, 1978. It is a new day and a new arrangement, and the Lord has now given the revelation that sheds light out into the world on this subject. As to any slivers of light or any particles of darkness of the past, we forget about them.”
Yes they do matter Mr. McConkie. The false prophecies and racist remarks came out of a “man of God” and they do indeed matter.
