February 2 – In Colossians 1:15 we learn a lot about the nature and character ofJesus.  “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creation.”  There are truly no other words which could exemplify how beautiful He really is.

The LDS Church has taught its members that Jesus was probably crucified for practicing polygamy.  They believe some of His wives were Mary, Martha and the other Mary.  It’s difficult as a Christian to even ponder the notion that He was part of such a deed.

“The grand reason of the burst of public sentiment in anathemas upon Christ and his disciples, causing his crucifixion, was evidently based upon polygamy, according to the testimony of the philosophers who rose in that age.  A belief in the doctrine of a plurality of wives caused the persecution of Jesusand his followers.  We might almost think they were ‘Mormons’’ (Jedediah Grant, J.D. 1:346)”. Jesus Was Married, pg. 48 by Ogden Kraut.
