God is Literal Father of All Spirits – Mormon Quotes

Ensign, May 1973, pg. 3; In section 20 of the Doctrine and Covenants, which directed the Prophet Joseph Smith to organize the Church again in this dispensation, we have a revealed summary of some of the basic doctrines of salvation. As to Diety the revelation says: “… there is a God in heaven, who is infinite and eternal, from everlasting to everlasting the same unchangeable God, the framer of heaven and earth, and all things which are in them.” (D&C 20:17.)… God is our Father; he is the being in whose image man is created. He has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s (D&C 130:22), and he is the literal and personal father of the spirits of all men. He is omnipotent and omniscient; he has all power and all wisdom; and his perfections consist in the possession of all knowledge, all faith or power, all justice, all judgment, all mercy, all truth, and the fullness of all godly attributes.” – Joseph Field Smith

Psalm 139:7-10Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?  8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.  9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Indeed God knows everything and is everywhere present!  How comforting it is to know He is our consummate Provider!  I am so grateful I know the One True God of the Bible as opposed to the god I used to worship in Mormonism.

As you will see in the entry below about the nature of God the Mormons have contradicted themselves once again.  If God is omnipotent and omniscient as they claim in the Ensign article noted above, wouldn’t it stand to reason that He is also omnipresent?
