Abstract

This video discusses the sensitive topic of prophetic error and the Church’s black African priesthood & temple restriction that was in place more or less for over 100 years. As the history is discussed, it may be helpful for viewers to remember the following crucial statement made in the Church’s 2013 Race & Priesthood essay: “Today, the Church disavows the theories advanced in the past that black skin is a sign of divine disfavor or curse, or that it reflects unrighteous actions in a premortal life; that mixed-race marriages are a sin; or that blacks or people of any other race or ethnicity are inferior in any way to anyone else. Church leaders today unequivocally condemn all racism, past and present, in any form."
