I love Mormons, but because they believe in a god so different than the Christian God, I worry about their lost souls. It saddens me to know that most of my family are Mormon and have no desire to look elsewhere for truth. That maybe what they have believed in is not true and what I have tried to share with them in the Bible is true. My heart is sincere, but Mormons cannot see this. So because of the hardness in their hearts, they are on the path of destruction and are not saved. Therefore, I must share the truth of God with them. And one of their teachings that needs to be brought out into the light is the one that makes God racist. How the god of the Book of Mormon separated the people who were white skinned and caused the wicked to become black sinned. And I don’t know about you, but the God of the Bible would never do this. 1“The Lord looketh on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7) and doesn’t care about the outward appearance. So what verses in their Book of Mormon says this? Well, it is written in 2 Nephi 5, which can be found below…
2 Nephi 5:20-23
20 Wherefore, the word of the Lord was fulfilled which he spake unto me, saying that: Inasmuch as they will not hearken unto thy words they shall be cut off from the presence of the Lord. And behold, they were cut off from his presence.
21 And he 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.
22 And thus saith the Lord God: I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities.
23 And cursed shall be the seed of him that mixeth with their seed; for they shall be cursed even with the same cursing. And the Lord spake it, and it was done.
Not sure how this makes you feel, but for me, I would run from this false religion, just because of these four verses. What this does is separate them and their racist god from Christians and their non-racist God. Now, as Christians, we know that 2“God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.” (Acts 10:34,35) This meaning that the skin color to the God of the Bible does not matter. He only cares that people of all nations would fear Him and do as He says. So, for every Mormon, I plead for you to leave your false god behind. No longer allow yourself to believe in anything where your church or your scriptures are making God out to be racist in any way. Truly being racist now will get people killed, especially with the Black Lives Matter movement. And if racism is a problem in our society, shouldn’t it be a problem with you and your relationship with your false racist god? This should cause you to tremble and give the true God of the Bible your life.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people would desire to know You, the one true God of the Bible, and no longer believe in and follow false gods. What false gods do is cause division in the faith and make people out to be more holier than others. How their church is true and others are false. Wow! What a trip this has become in our society today. So many people are on the path of destruction because of the false teachings in their lives and aren’t even aware of it. And what is sad, Lord, is that hardly any of these people are open to the truth of God. I wish they would desire to hear You and be drawn to know what You would speak to them, but they are satisfied already in what they believe in. Their contentment in what they already know is leading them on their own paths which are apart from You. So Lord, what can I do to reach these people? How can people see the light in me and then desire to know more? I wish people would be awakened to know Your truth. That a hunger will stir up in people like never before. That as much as people love watching TV, playing with their phone, and playing video games, that this passion will leave them and Your passion will begin to burn inside of them. Lord, until people desire to know something greater, will these same people be led by man and not by Your hand. So Lord, take me and others into the harvest and lead us to the lost. Allow the Holy Spirit to fill us up, that we may have words to speak to people. I love You, Jesus. Your ways are true and faithful. I trust in You, Jesus. Lead me on Your path forevermore. Amen.
