November 3 – Genesis 6:10; “And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.”

Word study time!  The Hebrew transliteration for Ham is hot, warm or tropical; Shem means dusky and Japheth means fair. Also study the names of the great leaders of the Bible and the tribes from which they came.  If God designed and made them why would He discriminate against them?  Moses married Zipporah who was a Cushite. Beyond all that in the New Testament era the Bible says we are all made from one blood, Acts 17:26.

Keep this in mind when reading the quote from the Mormon’s beliefs.

This is one of the main reasons I left Mormonism.  I couldn’t understand why God would hate my “dusky” skin and black hair if He created me.  The Bible says that after He made creation He looked upon all of it and pronounced it very good.

Genesis 1:31; “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

“Negroes in this life are denied the priesthood; under no circumstances can they hold this delegation of authority from the Almighty (Abr. 1:20-7).  The gospel message of salvation is not carried affirmatively to them (Moses 7:8).”  Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, pg. 527, 1966.
