Eternal Man, pg. 41; “To the degree that Christendom denies the genuine fatherhood of God and the genuine sonship of man’s spirit (and both Christendom and the major world religions do deny them) they have lost the image of man’s real origin and therefore the image of his real destiny. They deny the “power of godliness.”All the rapturous things that are said about the love or agape of God who sent His Only Begotten in the flesh are hollow when coupled with the dogma that He did not so love us that He distinguished us from the rest of creation by implanting in us the potential of His own likeness. The dogma “lessens man.” But, as any reference to a contemporary book on theology will show, it also lessens God, even while claiming to dignify Him. Shall we reject the shining truth because it is so shining?” – Truman Madsen
Genesis 3:5; “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
If everyone in the whole Christian world believes one thing and you (the Mormon) are the only one that believes otherwise doesn’t this cause you to pause.
