The second development, partly related to the first, was a fuller unfolding of the doctrine relating to premortal existence, . But he can have blue eyes, white skin and blond curly hair and have an African Negro in his ancestry and find himself rejected by the Mormons as an applicant for priesthood. The doctrine of marriage for time and eternity is for others, not for them. A devout Mormon never really leaves his religious shell as he goes about his life in the secular world.
Seldom is there any surface cruelty (, by Wallace Turner, Houghton Mifflin, 1966, pp.218-219, 243-245). Berrett, Vice Administrator of the Brigham Young University, explained: "..direct efforts have been made to proselyte among them" (, by John J. Jesus also said "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew ).
The gospel message of salvation is not carried affirmatively to them . The membership ranks are being filled with those whose religious commitment is to the maintenance of a racist society and who find Mormon theology a sanctimonious front for their convictions (, Sept. "Throughout the history of the original Christian church, the Negro never held the priesthood. It's a law of God" (: In all humility I must say that God has not inspired me to feel good about the Church's practices regarding Negroes.
In fact, I have come to feel very strongly that the practices are not right and that they are a powerful hindrance to the accepting of the gospel by the Negro people.

Later, in an interview with the stake president we were told the same thing: if you express doubts about the divinity of this "doctrine" you cannot go to the temple (: The tragedy of this denial of the LDS priesthood is not that it is unfair to the handful of Negroes actually in the LDS Church. People who have been taught since childhood that Negroes are "cursed by God" and therefore cannot hold the priesthood, probably find it perfectly natural to conclude that Negroes must be inferior—why else would God curse them? "It is our article of faith that the Negro was cursed by God and this makes him unworthy to hold the office of a priest or elder in our Church." UNGODLY RACE SUPERIORITY I can't tell you here now how long we talked. In the end he lent me one of the most important books of their religion— [by John J. I did not eat or sleep until I finished reading the book. When he asked me what I thought of the book I told him it was fatuous. I do not believe in a God whose adherents preach the superiority of one race over the other. The BIG Question is: why should the Mormons leave proselytizing among the Negroes in America and decided to go to Nigeria?
