A friend sent the material below to me earlier today and, with that friend’s permission I share it here. Apparently, the FIRM Foundation blog has been down for the past couple days — I have no idea why — but I think that others should be aware of what has evidently been posted there of late, and also that what has been posted there should be made part of a more or less permanent public record:
If people tell me what I say is anti semitic you have no clue what I am saying and I will not allow you to post. I love the Tribe of Judah and the Hebrews and I always have. Some peole call themselves Jews and have hijacked the Hebrew or Christ’s lineage by faing to be His people. “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan” Rev 2:9 alsoRev 3:9 and John 8:31-59. Christ himself calls the “jews” (people pretending to be from the Tribe of Judah) that crucified himare from the synagogue of Satan. The Tribe of Judah who was the son of Israel did not kill our Savior. Evil Khazarians who claim to be of the tribe of Judah did. Get it correct but don’t tell me what I think please. . . .Government Goal is to DepopulateThe natural beauty of this pristine area in Palestine Ohio, was once home to the Nephites and Native Americans, and our infiltrated US Government is ruining our society again. The agenda to depopulate the “eaters” and “goyim” [non-Jews – dcp] is in full swing in these last days. In my opinion the increase and scope of these train wrecks, and the amazing amount of chemicals and gases released, has me very concerned. I believe most of these are not just coincidences but deliberate acts. Why? Because evil wants to take down our great country. Satan is the leader of this Deep State, Cabal. It’s time to wake up people of the world, and realize something evil is happening. The reaction of Biden, to not even visit Ohio and instead visit Ukraine to give the evil Nazi group more money is shameful. Not even FEMA will help out. It takes our current Commander in Chief, President Trump to show these good people of Ohio he cares. He visited them and gave these people new hope. . . .
Very near to New Palestine, OH is Milford, OH. What beauty is found here. One of the most beloved Hopewell Earthworks was once here, but the Army Corp of Engineers plowed it over, in my opinion to get rid of any resemblance of Hebrew people found in Ohio. Just like the Smithsonian hiding 9 foot skeletons and telling us that the Native Americas were not as civilized as Whites. What a tragedy and very wrong.
New Palestine, OH Claremont County
This beautiful area of the heartland of America, once so beautiful is now being destroyed by evil governments whos goal is to depopulate the world. The ingredient in Agent Orange called Dioxin has been created by our own government. Beaurocrats burning Acrylic Chloride, with creates a very deadly gas called Dioxin. When will this evil end? It won’t, not until the Savior comes for the second time, which may be closer than we think.
The Cabal owns the cure to cancer, and won’t share it, they want to kill us or enslave us, they have a trans human desire and can today clone humans, which they use vaccines to destroy us, they steal and rape and sacrifice children by the thousands, they create nearly every war we have ever had to make money on both sides, they stir up racism, when I say that, it is Satan’s world not Gods’, yet. It’s getting worse not better…DUMBS Deep Underground Military Base I believe there are thousand of miles of underground tunnels all over the world. The White hats have been blowing them up with the Rods of god for 3 years now and then flooding them. We have rescued thousands of children that are abused and near death. It is atrocious. The world will be shocked when they find out as most are asleep. My good friend Tim Ballard has told me many evils of sex trafficking.

In this context, I think it worth pointing out that, so far as I can recall, only one scriptural text in the world — the Book of Mormon –contains an explicit denunciation of anti-Semitism.
That forceful denunciation comes in the context of an extended passage in 2 Nephi 29 that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints commonly and typically use to argue for an open scriptural canon, for the possibility of genuine divine revelation outside the covers of the Bible:
4 But thus saith the Lord God: O fools, they shall have a Bible; and it shall proceed forth from the Jews, mine ancient covenant people. And what thank they the Jews for the Bible which they receive from them? Yea, what do the Gentiles mean? Do they remember the travails, and the labors, and the pains of the Jews, and their diligence unto me, in bringing forth salvation unto the Gentiles?
5 O ye Gentiles, have ye remembered the Jews, mine ancient covenant people? Nay; but ye have cursed them, and have hated them, and have not sought to recover them. But behold, I will return all these things upon your own heads; for I the Lord have not forgotten my people.
6 Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible. Have ye obtained a Bible save it were by the Jews? . . .
14 And it shall come to pass that my people, which are of the house of Israel, shall be gathered home unto the lands of their possessions; and my word also shall be gathered in one. And I will show unto them that fight against my word and against my people, who are of the house of Israel, that I am God, and that I covenanted with Abraham that I would remember his seed forever.
Latter-day Saints are, thus, scripturally commanded not to be anti-Semites. Quite to the contrary, in fact. Unsurprisingly, therefore, Latter-day Saints have a justified reputation for philo-Semitism and they feel themselves specifically akin to ancient Israel. That’s why Utah — a place to which the nineteenth-century camp of Israel was led by prophets and patriarchs and high priests headed by a “modern Moses” who presided over orders of priesthood named after Aaron and Melchizedek that see themselves as “the seed of Abraham” — is sprinkled with temples and tabernacles and studded with place names derived from the Old Testament such as Canaan Mountain, Eden, Enoch, Ephraim, the Jordan River (connecting a fresh water “sea” to a salty one), Moab, Mount Nebo, Noah’s Ark, Salem, Three Patriarchs, and Zion.
While on this subject, you might also be interested in a relevant podcast:
“Part 2: How the Book of Mormon Counters Anti-Semitism, with Bradley J. Kramer”
About the Interview: Horrified by the Holocaust and fearful that the New Testament, as it has been traditionally understood, may have contributed to this tragedy, Christian scholars and ministers of all stripes have, in recent decades, proposed several, “extra-textual” ways of altering that understanding. . . .
In this episode of Latter-day Saint Perspectives Podcast, Laura Harris Hales interviews Bradley J. Kramer about his new book, Gathered in One: How the Book of Mormon Counters Anti-Semitism in the New Testament. In this book, Kramer reviews how Fisher, Salmon, Spong, as well as other Christian scholars and ministers have attempted to deal with such anti-Semitic elements as the “blood curse” in Matthew (27:25) and John’s claim that the devil is the father of the Jews (8:44), and he contrasts their efforts with the approach employed by the Book of Mormon.
