Eternal Unchanging Doctrine

“The lord’s truth is not altered by fads, trends, or public pinion.”
-David A Bednar, Apr. 2013 General Conference

Yeah ok, we just won’t talk about the “truths” of:

Well, lets we, I think I can come up with at least one, right?

Oh, I know:

Polygamy

Blacks in the priesthood

Black/Indians being cursed with their skin color

The cursed being able to become “white and delightsome”

The ancestry of the American Indians

“Hot drinks” …. Caffeine

Blood atonement

Adam-god

The stance of the church on these truths has never changed. Oh wait yes it has. Th church has a great and well documented history of doing exactly the opposite of Mr. Bednar’s statement. All of the changes mentioned above and some of the “prophecies” made by the prophets came in the light of public opinion or pressure. (Check out my post, My Coming Out pt5, to see some failed prophecies)
