“Foundation upon Which Church is Built”, Ensign, May 1991, pg. 64; “Joseph Smith was not only a great man, but he was an inspired servant of the Lord, a prophet of God. His greatness consists in one thing—the truthfulness of his declaration that he saw the Father and the Son and that he responded to the reality of that divine revelation. . . .”For the first time in eighteen hundred years, God had revealed himself as a personal being. Furthermore, the Father and the Son demonstrated the undeniable truth that they are separate and distinct personages. Indeed, the relationship of the Father and the Son was reaffirmed by the divine introduction to the boy prophet, ‘This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him.’ (JS—H 1:17.) Those who were baptized into the Church on the sixth of April, 1830, believed in the existence of a personal God; they believed that his reality and the reality of his Son, Jesus Christ, constitute the eternal foundation upon which this Church is built.”Once we accept Christ as divine, it is easy to visualize his Father as being just as personal as he. Christ said, ‘He that hath seen me hath seen the Father.’ (John 14:9.) Faith in the existence of a divine and real and living personal God was the first element that contributed to the perpetuity of the Church of Jesus Christ in ancient times, and it is the everlasting foundation upon which The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is built today.” – Howard W. Hunter
1 Samuel 15:29; “And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.”
The quote by Mr. Hunter is chock full of lies. Besides the fact that God is not a man Mr. Hunter was also wrong by proclaiming it was the “first time” in 1,800 years that “God had revealed himself as a personal being”…
The truth is that God had never proclaimed Himself to be a personal being! The god that presented himself to Smith was in fact a false god.
