#2 Post of 2013 – If God Cannot Change, Then Why Should We Pray?

| December 27, 2013

Post Author: Bill Pratt The Bible teaches, and theology argues, that God cannot change. This is called divine immutability. But if God cannot change, then why do we pray to him? After all, when we pray, aren’t we trying to change God’s mind? Norm Geisler answers this question in his Systematic Theology, Volume Two: God, Creation. […]

Were the Doctrines of the Trinity and the Dual Nature of Christ invented in the 4th and 5th Centuries?

| August 30, 2013

Post Author: Darrell (This post originally appeared on Darrell’s Thoughts and Reflections and is being reposted here for the benefit of TQA readers.) One of the charges I often hear leveled against Christianity today is that both the Doctrines of the Trinity and the Dual Nature of Christ were “invented” by the Church in the fourth […]

Is There More to Life than Technology?

| January 18, 2013

Post Author: Bill Pratt I own an iPhone 5. My family owns an iPad, two iPhone 4s, and multiple iPods. Oh, and we bought a Google Nexus 7 tablet for Christmas. We also have DirecTV with whole home DVR capability. This list could go on for a while – believe me. I love technology, and, […]

Do The Creeds Matter?

| December 13, 2010

Post Author:  Darrell I recently spent some time on a Christian Facebook page that ministers to Mormons.  It is mostly made up of ex-Mormon Christians who feel very strongly about their faith and want to reach out to Mormons.  They write articles explaining the differences between Traditional Christianity and Mormonism and the problems with Mormon Theology […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Post 6

| June 9, 2010

Post Author: Darrell The formal name of the Mormon Church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Many people believe that because the name of the church includes the words Jesus Christ, Mormons worship the Christ of the Bible. However, a closer analysis reveals several startling differences between the Jesus of Mormonism and […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Post 5

| June 5, 2010

Post Author:  Darrell From a biblical perspective, there are several issues with the Mormon view of God the Father as described in the previous post. First, contrary to Mormon teachings, the Bible says very clearly that God is not, nor has He ever been, a man. Num. 23:19 says, “God is not man [emphasis mine], […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Post 4

| June 3, 2010

Post Author: Darrell Historically there have been a variety of Mormon views regarding the nature of God the Father. The purpose of this post is not to address every single strain of LDS thought that exists in this area, nor do I contend that all Mormons hold the beliefs to which I will speak. Instead, I […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Post 3

| June 1, 2010

Post Author: Darrell As discussed in the last post, the Mormon Church teaches that God the Father has a body of flesh and bone. Unfortunately for Mormons, there are biblical problems with this teaching. John 4:24 says, “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” This verse has long been held as […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Post 2

| May 30, 2010

Post Author: Darrell The nature of the Mormon Godhead bears some similarity to the Arian heresy of the early Christian church. Arius taught that God the Father and Jesus Christ are two separate beings distinct in nature, with Christ being a subordinate God. In similar respects, Mormonism teaches that God the Father, Jesus Christ, and […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Post 1

| May 28, 2010

Post Author: Darrell In its short 180 year life, the Mormon Church has had a curious relationship with traditional Christianity. A quick look through Mormon history will demonstrate that the LDS Church has a long history of degrading Christian teachings. As a result, it is somewhat odd to find modern day LDS leaders referring to their […]
