Is God a Racist?
  • At one time only those that descended from Israel's son Levi could hold the priesthood.
  • When Jesus was on the earth he, as a rule, only taught the Jews and his teachings were only presented to the Jews until after Jesus was resurrected.
  • The LORD cursed the Egyptians with plagues because Pharoah refused to let the Israelites go out of Egypt. (Exodus chapters 7-9)
  • The LORD curses the Moabites and Ammonites because "unto the tenth generation) because they did not provide food and water to the Israelites in the desert wilderness. (Deuteronomy 23:3)
  • The LORD promises to curse the Israelites, His own chosen people, if they do not adhere to His commandments.(Deuteronomy chapter 28)
  • The Israelites were slaves for hundreds of years as a curse (and a blessing) by God.
  • The Lamanites in the Book of Mormon were cursed with a dark skin and were cursed (and blessed) by being over run by another group of people.
Note that none of these give us the right to oppress another, but we can see that hardships of our ancestors often reap great blessings for us.
