. . . Of One Essence With The Father?

| August 16, 2013

Post Author: Darrell (This post originally appeared on Darrell’s Thoughts and Reflections on Aug. 5, 2013 and is being reposted here for Tough Questions Answered readers.) I was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints – aka The Mormon Church – for several years prior to converting to Christianity and becoming Orthodox.  One […]

Mormon Church Visit

| September 3, 2010

Image via Wikipedia Post Author:  Darrell The Sunday before last some friends and I attended services at a local Ward of the Mormon Church.  This is the first time I have attended the LDS Church since leaving it for Christianity a few years ago.  For any Mormons reading this, please know that we were very […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Part 7

| June 11, 2010

Post Author:  Darrell When comparing the nature of the Mormon Jesus to the Jesus Christ of the Bible, several significant differences become readily apparent. Deut. 6:4 tells us emphatically that God is one in nature: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.” In addition, in John 10:30, Jesus tells us that […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Part 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? Part 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? Part 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? Part 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? Part 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? Part 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 […]

Time, The Succession of Moments, and An Actual Infinite

| March 26, 2010

Post Author:  Darrell I recently did a couple of posts regarding the incoherence of an actual infinite and how, as a result, the eternality of matter as taught in Mormonism is impossible.  These posts can be found here and here. I want to address another way of analyzing the concept of “eternal matter” as taught in the Mormon […]
