Legends and Myths of Mormons and Pagans

08 January

Robert MilletEnsign, ‘The Eternal Gospel,’ July 1996, p. 53; “Knowing what we know concerning God our Father — that he is a personal being; that he has a body of salt lake mormon temple 2flesh and bones as tangible as our own; that he is an exalted and glorified being; that he was once a man and dwelt on an earth – and knowing that this knowledge was had by many of the ancients, should we be surprised to find legends and myths throughout the cultures of the earth concerning gods who have divine power but human attributes and passions? … Should we be surprised to find pagan traditions of virgin births and divine humans?” – Robert L. Millet
2 Timothy 4:3-4; “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

Questions:

If you’re LDS, what are your thoughts on this?

What do you think of when you hear pagan cultures have worshiped the same way you do today as a Mormon?

Do you have any concerns about this?

If not, why?

If you do, what are they?

Why would a pagan culture worship in the same manner the Mormon god instructed Joe Smith to worship?
