I remember reading this scripture and being told that the land was kept pure as the “land of promise” to Lehi and his family.
2 Nephi 1:8 And behold, it is wisdom that this land should be kept as yet from the knowledge of other nations; for behold, many nations would overrun the land, that there would be no place for an inheritance.
9 Wherefore, I, Lehi, have obtained a promise, that inasmuch as those whom the Lord God shall bring out of the land of Jerusalem shall keep his commandments, they shall prosper upon the face of this land; and they shall be kept from all other nations, that they may possess this land unto themselves. And if it so be that they shall keep his commandments they shall be blessed upon the face of this land, and there shall be none to molest them, nor to take away the land of their inheritance; and they shall dwell safely forever.
Now the LDS Church wants us to believe that the Hebrew DNA was swamped out by the multitudes of Asians that were already on the American Continent.
The interesting thing is, they will manage to pull this story off with the True Believers.
Ping to you Brother.
Do you have anything to add to this preposterous “change” in Mormon understanding of the Lamanites (American Natives)?
“I remember reading this scripture and being told that the land was kept pure as the land of promise to Lehi and his family.”
What you were told is irrelevant, what is clear from the text is that the promise is conditional on their following God, and they didn’t do that if you read to the end so all bets were off.
