Mormon Dilemma 315

15 July

The Acts of God for Man

Ether 12:11-12; “…by faith was the law of Moses given…12 For if there be no faith among the children of men God can do no miracle among them; wherefore, he showed not himself until after their faith.”

Exodus 12:13; “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”

Romans 5:8; “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Again another lie in the Book of Mormon is found.

God doesn’t wait for man to have faith to act. This was God’s plan and it had absolutely nothing to do with man having enough faith.

God instructed Moses and the Israelites what to do in order not to be destroyed when He sent the angel of death over the land of Egypt. He protected them because of His love for them, not because they had enough faith. 

The Law wasn’t instituted or fulfilled because of man’s faith. These things were done to act as a bridge for man to get back to God because of their sin. And even though the Law wouldn’t ever be fulfilled by man they could be in communion with Him by obedience which they could never fulfill themselves, thus God putting on flesh and leaving His heavenly home to be the obedient one man could never be on their own.
