UCTP, Wow, I am very dissipointed that you feel this way about the
man that discovered the Americas to the Western world in 1492. He
also a man that was inspired by God to sail across those tretcherous
waters in that era. Columbus was certainly a religious man
to the day. According to the standards of our day Columbus
allowed things to happen that are to us incredulous, but without the
gospel on the Earth how was one so uneducated in truth suppost to act
according to your standards. I'll have you remember that it was
Columbus himself but many of those whom were in voyages with Columbus
that so brutally attacked your people.
Also your people are the ones that felt that their land and way of
life was in danger (they knew all too well) and so on many occasions
they became fierce instead of cooporating with the Europeans. Now
will not admit that I would have stood idly by and allowed the Euros
to invade my land and liberty, but the power of God can and did.
you read in the Book of Mormon another testiment of Jesus Christ
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in the book of 2
Nephi, 13th chapter you will find a verse in there that talks of one
inspired, that was led to the islands of the sea (north and south
america) by the Holy Ghost. All others were unable to reach the
Americas because of the power of God. That tells me that what
Columbus did was not a putrid and abominable act, but an act of God,
like it or not.
Your people have a very in-depth recorded history in that book. If
you wonder why you don't know of your peoples start in the Americas,
it is because they didn't keep records. However, the brothers of
people did and that is where the Book of Mormon came from. In the book
your people are foreordained to receive the punishment that they did
in the end. Look at the consequences of the Natives of all the
That my dear (and I mean this sincerely) UCTP is by the power of God,
not because you are bad or the Tainos are bad no but because of the
unbelief of your first ancestors in America. This is part of Gods
plan, I know this is true I believe what the Book of Mormon reads is
very true, as a matter of fact more true than any book. I know it
of your ancestors and the plan of god.
Please instead of attacking thoughts of Columbus, celebrate what he
really accomplished and that is emmence. Stop feeling sorry for
yourselves and move your people to a higher level like the Book of
Mormon states you will. God knows you and your past, but it is your
future he is concerned about.
