From our side of the fence, we have no problem with putting 1 + 1 together to get 2. Pity the problem of the believers.
BY F'ing pulled it out o his butt when he revealed the curse on the lineage of Cain. He made it up! Sure, there are Saint-ly advocates who continue to preach that it was merited when it existed, but now the lord said they can have the priesthood. A prophet would never fib about doctrine!
Apparently faithful members are asking, "Did BY make that shizz up?"https://bycommonconsent.com/2021/02/11/whether-the-temple-and-priesthood-restriction-was-mistaken/?utm_source=Salt+Lake+Tribune&utm_campaign=1c4117c52c-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2021_02_18_03_11&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_dc2415ff28-1c4117c52c-44909665
In support of the righteousness of the ban, the author acknowledges that back in the day of the 12 tribes, only the Levites could hold the priesthood. So see? Ghawd knows how to be exclusionary!
You'll have your own thoughts on this issue...
What surprises me is that this is getting 'air time'.
BY and some later prophets (looking at you Spencer!) screwed the pooch ...
"Instead of seeing it as a mistake and moving on, those hoping to see it as God’s will have to go through various contortions that, in my opinion, perpetuate damage to the Body of Christ, and contribute to a loss of faith among our people."
Lots of thoughts surface reading this. But none of those thoughts suggest, at least in my mind, that I need to give up my newly formed habit of drinking 16 ounces of coffee every morning.
