Review of Blacks and the Mormon Priesthood: Setting the Record Straight

This month marks the 37th anniversary of the Mormon Church's 1978 repealing of the doctrine disallowing blacks to get the priesthood. In 2007, Marcus H. Martins--son of first black general authority  Helvécio Martins, wrote a booklet in an attempt to explain why the LDS doctrine that banned blacks to the LDS priesthood before June 1978 was ever allowed. His reasoning seems to ignore Mormon teachings before the ban was taken away. MRM's Eric Johnson reviews the book, which was the focus of a Viewpoint on Mormonism podcast shows during early June 2015.

Did Emma Smith approve of polygamy?

Some Latter-day Saints may rationalize Smith's behavior.

2 Samuel 12:7, 8

Does 2 Samuel 12 support the practice of polygamy in the Old Testament and 19th century Mormonism?

Episode 3: Jericho

In the 1950s, an archaeologist named Kathrine Kenyon came along and said that the Jericho as described by the Bible never took place. However, other archaeologists--both before and after Kenyon--haven't so readily agreed. The pottery and fallen wall evidence seems to show that there is more to the story than what the secular folks want you to hear. With his video Jericho Unearthed as a background, Joel Kramer takes us onsite to experience Jericho for ourselves. Come alone and see what it's all about.  To see the other episodes in this 16-part series, click here.
