The teaching in the pre-edited Book of Mormon was clear: If you’re righteous, your dark skin will become “White and Delightsome.” But did you realize that if you leave the religion, you will become black?

“You can see men and women who are sixty or seventy years of age looking young and handsome; but let them apostatize, and they will become gray-haired, wrinkled, and black, just like the Devil.”

Brigham Young – 7 October 1857, Journal of Discourses – Volume 5 (London, England: Asa Calkin, 1858), 332.
