The Deseret News, Dec. 23, 1923 “Mary told the story most beautifully…Referring to the event, she said: “God hath done wonderful things unto me.” And the Holy Ghost came upon her, is the story, and she came into the presence of the highest. No man or woman can live in mortality and survive the presence of the Highest except by the sustaining power of the Holy Ghost. So it came upon her to prepare her for admittance into the divine presence, and the power of the Highest, who is the Father, was present, and overshadowed her, and that holy child that was born of her was called the Son of God…The power of creation…It is the most sacred and holy and divine function with which God has endowed man. Made holy, it is retained by the Father of us all, and in his exercise of that great and marvelous creative power and function he did not debase himself, nor debauch his daughter. Thus Christ became the literal Son of a divine Father, and no one else was worthy to be his father.” – Melvin J. Ballard
Luke 1:34 “Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?”
You’d think there’d be some lines you just know you shouldn’t cross. That’s true for everyone, but apparently not for Mormons. Heresy runs supreme when men are allowed to desecrate the Lord in such matters.
Why wouldn’t the obvious issue be a problem?
Moreover, why didn’t this man praise God for the miracle of Jesus instead of degrading Him?
Melvin Joseph Ballard (1873 – 1939) was an apostle, and the grandfather of another current apostle, M. Russell Ballard. See Nepotism in the Mormon Church.
We pray Mormons would be as appalled as we are at such evil theories.
With Love in Christ;
