November 15 – Colossians 1:16-17; “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
There are three problems with the Mormon quote today. First, they do not believe that Jesus created the earth; they believe he helped organize it (Abraham 4:1). Secondly, they do not believe in the Trinity (D&C 130:22).
And last but not least they believe Jesus was created so how could He be with the Father from the beginning? Ask the Mormon in your life what their interpretation is of the biblical verse above and the Mormon scripture used below.
3 Nephi 9:15-16; “Behold, I am Jesus Christ the Son of God. I created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are. I was with the Father from the beginning. I am in the Father, and the Father in me; and in me hath the Father glorified his name. I came unto my own, and my own received me not. And the scriptures concerning my coming are fulfilled.”
