The Mormon Faith & Black Folks


The journey of the Black Mormon has been a long one; a very difficult journey. Black Mormons have had to bear burdens very few white Mormons could have bourne. But when the sacrifice is greater so is the reward. Now, at the end of their long journey, they have arrived, and, as Brigham Young once declared, have the Priesthood and all the blessings every other Member of the Church can enjoy, and more!

This book was written because thousands of black folks are joining the Church every year, and eventually all of them hear something about the Curse of Cain and the Priesthood ban. Naturally, they have questions; sincere questions. Unfortunately, most of the time their bishops tell them “Don’t worry about it!” or “That’s all in the past, just forget about it!” or “Why are you asking such questions?” or “Look at the time! I’ve gotta run!” This book was written for those black, white, yellow, red, and brown Members of the Church, and the sincere Investigator, and the missionary, and the long-time Member who has always wondered, who have sincere questions and deserve sincere and truthful answers.. It was written for you so that you can know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free from doubts and questions.

On the top of most Mormon Temples one sees an Angel blowing a trumpet. What does that symbolize? Is is symbolic of the Gathering of the Elect. Jesus said:

“And he shall send His angels with the great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his Elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” (Matthew 24:31)

Angels appeared to Joseph Smith, Oliver Cowdery, and others, and restored to them the Priesthood keys to “bind on earth what shall be bound in Heaven”. (Matt. 18:18). It is in Mormon Temples that faithful Priesthood-holders are sealed to their faithful wives and children for time and all eternity; so they can have and enjoy those relationship on other worlds; worlds without end.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sends out tens of thousands of missionaries each and every year with copies of The Book of Mormon, which says that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God,...

"..and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black or white, bond or free, male or female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God.” (2 Nephi 26:33)
