Dear Zionisti,

For a long time I held to the idea that the Amerindians where, as
described in the Book of Mormon, solely the descendants of the Jaredites
and Lehites. I have had to change my thinking of late. Not because of
the DNA or any other feeble attempt by man to assign broad definitions
to scanty data, but because of what is in the book itself. In 2nd Nephi,
Chapter 1 this is found:

"5 But, said he, notwithstanding our afflictions, we have obtained a
land of promise, a land which is choice above all other lands; a land
which the Lord God hath covenanted with me should be a land for the
inheritance of my seed. Yea, the Lord hath covenanted this land unto me,
and to my children forever, and also all those who should be led out of
other countries by the hand of the Lord."

In this verse, the Lord not only promises this land as an inheritance to
Nephi but also to others that would be led here. So who are those who
came here from other countries? That could broadly apply to East Asians
coming across a land bridge or many other possible originations. We do
not have their records now but will someday, based on our righteousness,
receive them. Until then, I no longer mentally debate the originations
of the various peoples who greeted the Gentiles.
