I can never understand how the keepers of slavery could honestly back their practice up with scripture. While it is true that scripture does refer to slaves, slave owners, masters, and servants, it never gives approval to the practice. Rather, scripture teaches equality and is the bases by which our understanding of freedom was based upon, despite the practice at the Nation’s foundation.
Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Not only is slavery not taught in scripture, neither is racism. Yet, did you know that the Book of Mormon is a racist book? If you do not believe me, take care and read the follow scriptures from their bible. Be warned, if you believe in equality it will make your blood boil:
2 Nephi 5:21 And the Lord had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them.
Alma 3:6 “And the skins of the Lamanites were dark, according to the mark which was set upon their fathers, which was a curse upon them because of their transgression and their rebellion against their brethren, who consisted of Nephi, Jacob, and Joseph, and Sam, who were just and holy men.”
3 Nephi 2:14-15 And it came to pass that those Lamanites who had united with the Nephites were numbered among the Nephites; and their curse was taken from them, and their skin became white like unto the Nephites;
Moses 7:22 And Enoch also beheld the residue of the people which were the sons of Adam; and they were a mixture of all the seed of Adam save it was the seed of Cain, for the seed of Cain were black, and had not place among them.
Have you heard enough? I have and yet the Mormons want to claim that the Book of Mormon is as holy as the Bible. They call it “Another Gospel.”
Keep in mind that Moses was married to a black woman and Philip led a black man to Jesus. We are brothers and sisters in Christ!
