Polytheism

Abraham 4:25; “And the Gods organized the earth to bring forth the beasts after their kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after its kind; and the Gods saw they would obey.

Moses 2:20-23; “And I, God, said: Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl which may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And I, God, created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind; and I, God, saw that all things which I had created were good. 22 And I, God, blessed them, saying: Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the sea; and let fowl multiply in the earth; 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.”

Genesis 1:20-23; “And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.”

Okay I listed the entire passage in the Genesis account of when God created every living animal, ending the passage with “…the fifth day” so there’d be no confusion about what happened when. I highly suggest you introduce this passage to the Mormon in your life to show them how God went about doing what He did.

Notice that from their book of Moses in the Pearl of Great Price there is an account of the creation of the earth that is almost verbatim to the Genesis account even down to the verse number.

Coincidence?  Yeah, I don’t think so. 

I find it appalling to think God was somehow surprised to find that the animals miraculously obeyed.  Good grief Joseph Smith.
