Colossians 1:19; “For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell”.
At a Seattle conference I attended several years ago, Pastor Alistair Begg told attendees, ‘When we lose our way in the Bible, we lose sight of the cross’.
I’ve often wondered why Mormons bother with the Bible when they have their own doctrines. Of course, the answer is simple. The Church uses it to confuse, and mislead the unsuspecting because they’ve rejected God’s altar for sin, that being the Cross at Calvary. Taking attention away from the cross all begins in rewriting God’s word.
When Spencer Kimball ruled the Mormon roost (’73-’85), it never crossed my mind he was purposefully deceiving me, or my family. We looked at him as a benevolent grandfatherly-type with whom we could unquestionably trust our very souls to lead us back to the Mormon Heavenly Father.
However, right of the bat, we (I) lost our way through the Bible as Pastor Begg said. No one looked at the way Kimball dethroned Jesus by stating he ‘became perfect’.
Asking a simple question would’ve put Kimball’s teachings in their place.
How could Jesus become perfect if He was already divine?
2 Peter 1:3-4 “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
In the Greek, the word divine is ‘theios’, which means godlike, or Godhead. Now if all the fullness dwelt in Jesus as the Bible states, and He gave us all things through His divine power, how could He do this if He wasn’t God?
Kimball’s directive is nothing less than a lie leading Mormons to the wrong Jesus! It’d be impossible for the Mormon Jesus to be divine if He wasn’t already that way.
Pray for those who’ve bought into Kimball’s blasphemy, and be sure to share the truth with them today!
With Love in Christ;
1 Cor 1:18
