Mormon Dilemma 139

08 January

According to Mormonism, was Jesus Created?

Yes. 

Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg. 548; “Yet God the Father is not one in substance with the Son or the Holy Spirit, but is a separate being. The Father existed prior to the Son and the Holy Ghost and is the source of their divinity. In classical terms, LDS theology is subordinationist; that is, it views the Son and the Holy Ghost as subordinate to and dependent upon God the Eternal Father. They are his offspring. Thus Joseph Smith referred to the Father as “God the first” to emphasize his priority in the Godhead (TPJS, p. 190).”

John 1:1, 14; “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

How could Jesus be created if He is eternal? The meaning for eternal is without beginning or end; lasting forever, always existing; perpetual; ceaseless; endless; enduring; immutable; everlasting.

Also read what the John the Apostle had to say in the book of Revelation 1:8, 10-13;

“8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.”

It just doesn’t get much plainer than that.  If you’re LDS I would ask for you to consider what we’ve presented here and compare this with the other evidences we have on our sites.  Then of course you’ll want to compare these things with what the Church says.

We know it’s scary and of course it’s going to be confrontational when you begin to see and understand that the Bible is not compatible with anything in Mormonism just as the Jesus of Mormonism is a different Jesus than what the Bible reveals Him to be.

Know that we’re praying for you always and would love to hear from you!
