Council of gods
Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg. 348; “I will transpose and simplify it in the English language. Oh, ye lawyers, ye doctors, and ye priests, who have persecuted me, I want to let you know that the Holy Ghost knows something as well as you do. The head God called together the Gods and sat in grand council to bring forth the world. The grand councilors sat at the head in yonder heavens and contemplated the creation of the worlds which were created at the time. When I say doctors and lawyers, I mean the doctors and lawyers of the Scriptures. I have done so hitherto without explanation, to let the lawyers flutter and everybody laugh at them. Some learned doctors might take a notion to say the Scriptures say thus and so; and we might believe the Scriptures; they are not to be altered. But I am going to show you an error in them.”
Isaiah 44:24; “Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself.”
The sad part about the passage above is how the majority of Mormons aren’t aware of all the patronizing, hate-filled, obnoxious sermons Smith spewed from his mouth. This example came from his infamous King Follett Discourse.
I am certain my mother knows nothing of how he categorically berated the body of Christ and spoke to and of them in this manner, but sadly I know that if she did hear of it she wouldn’t condemn his words either.
Why they (the Mormons today) won’t open their eyes and hearts to the truth is a mystery to me, but I’m going to continue to pray they’ll do just that.
It’s obvious to anyone who has studied the history of Mormonism that Smith knew exactly what he was doing and how he purposefully and strategically led thousands of people away from the Lord.
The Bible is the message of the One and Only True God who offers salvation to the world through the sacrifice of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus. The New Testament is the culmination of all that was predicted in the Old Testament the story of Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection, and the birth of the Christian church. Both combined is the antithesis of the evil Joseph Smith preached from his pulpit.
From the first verse of the Bible to the last there isn’t one hint that men can become gods, nor is there any hint that God, my God, needed help from a council of gods on how to create the earth. Any elements that were or are floating around in the atmosphere or in other universes were created by the God of the Bible.
The scenario mentioned by Smith in this passage was nothing but his wild imagination at work again.
