Who Created the Earth; the Gods or God? Contradictions in Mormon Canon

05 December

3-in-1Moses 2:1; “I am the Beginning and the End, the Almighty God; by mine Only Begotten I created these things; yea, in the beginning I created the heaven, and the earth upon which thou standest”

Abraham 4:1; “And then the Lord said: Let us go down. And they went down at the beginning, and they, that is the Gods, organized and formed the heavens and the earth”

Genesis 1:1; “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

Things are always complicated when you start introducing extra-biblical writings…sigh…

As you can see Joseph Smith had a hard time even agreeing with himself when it came to his ‘gift’ of translating.

Which of the two ‘inspired’ verses from Mormon canon do you believe?

And lest we forget what we read the other day from the LDS’ team of experts, consider their words when contemplating the Mormon canon listed here today.

Shields Research;  “…Joseph had taken advantage of limited opportunities for basic education, but (as his mother insists) he was anything but widely read: at 18 he “had never read the Bible through in his life.  He seemed much less inclined to the perusal of books than any of the rest of our children, but far more given to meditation and deep study.”
