Won’t that come as a bit of a shock to people that have never seen a God, let alone a Caucasian God.?
Any god who threatens to torture people forever if they don’t worship him- isn’t worth worshipping in my opinion. What kind of self-centered, insecure god NEEDS people to worship him in the first place?
btw…Since Yahweh is a middle-eastern god, what makes you think he’s caucasian?
1) Will the souls of Pre-Columbian native Americans find themselves standing before Yahweh on judgement day ?
2) Won’t that come as a bit of a shock to people that have never seen a God, let alone a Caucasian God.?
They will be judged by the same judge as everyone else.
Being LDS and having served a mission which included many native american nations I can tell you that there are many similarities in the traditions both written and not written of the LDS doctrine and the native american religion. I was very close to the family of the local native american church leader and we talked for hours and hours over several months about teachings and doctrine. We discussed from our own perspectives the issues facing religion and how the person draws closer to God. We talked about the native ceremonies and I saw such similarities with the those that I participate in both in and out of the temple. Now, Joseph Smith knew of none of these things but there they are in the Book of Mormon and you can see the lines of doctrine filter into the native teachings of today as it was handed down to them.
To say otherwise falsely claims that the traditions and teachings we know of from the aztecs and the mayans didn’t permeate into the societies and cultures of the peoples around them. Are all natives from the family of Lehi? The book of Mormon addresses that as well and says no.
The Native Indians were descendants and supposedly were taught all about Yahweh from the Mormon prophet who sailed to America from Israel. Although I see no connection between the Native American Indian culture and ancient Jewish culture.
I can just see the millions of proud people standing there being told that they should have been worshiping this God all along,,saying collectively,,,W T F
Who what now?
Sorry…..we have our own spiritualities and beliefs….still to this day. No need for Middle-Eastern superstition that is best suited to the era in which it was thought up.
All shall be judged on judgementdat including yourself!Accept christ as your lord and savior and repent of all your sins to god in jesus name! Its not too late!
i believe deep down inside they always knew they were wrong, and well knew what they were doing, so this should come as no surprise to them.
nobody has seen god.
