'The birth of the Saviour was as natural as are the births of our children; it was the result of natural action. He partook of flesh and bloodwas begotten of his Father, as we were of our fathers.' (FLDS/LDS Prophet Brigham Young, Journal Of Discourses, 8:115)
'The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints proclaims that Jesus Christ is the Son of God in the most literal sense. The body in which He performed His mission in the flesh was fathered by that same Holy Being we worship as God, our Eternal Father. Jesus was not the son of Joseph, nor was He begotten by the Holy Ghost. He is the Son of the Eternal Father!' (Ezra Taft Benson, Encyclopedia of Mormonism, Vol. 2, p. 725, 1992; The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 7)
'Christ Not Begotten of Holy Ghost ...Christ was begotten of God. He was not born without the aid of Man, and that Man was God!' (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, 1954, 1:18).
latter-day prophets have made it clear that despite what it says in Matthew 1:20, the Holy Ghost was not the father of Jesus.... The Savior was fathered by a personage of flesh and bone, and was literally what Nephi said he was, 'Son of the Eternal Father' (Carlfred B. Broderick, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Autumn, 1967, pp.100-101).
'Christ was Begotten by an immortal Father in the same way that mortal men are begotten by mortal fathers' (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 1966, pg.547).
KJV Matthew 1:20
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
KJV Matthew 1:35
And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
And for the Members of the breakaway LDS sect of Mormonism who have enough respect for Joseph Smith to believe that his retranslation of the bible was not a fraud as Brigham Young taught:
Joseph Smith Translation Matthew 2:3
But while he thought on there things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a vision, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife; for that which is conceived in her, is of the Holy Ghost.
Joseph Smith Translation Luke 1:34-35
34 Then said Mary unto the angel; How can this be?
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, Of the Holy Ghost, and the power of the Highest. Therefore also, that holy child that shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
Merry Christmas to you all.
Why would I have to defend someone elses religious beliefs?
I am a former mormon, and assure you it is a controlling cult.
Folks need to see this stuff here and now, rather than during the general on CNN.
Romney cannot win, and the very conservatives , the Christians, he is already having such trouble with will walk away in droves under this type of occult barrage.
I am old enough to remember when John Kennedy’s Catholicism was a big issue that eventually was proved insignificant. If Romney’s religious preference starts gaining a lot of negative publicity, it will probably just make me inclined to move towards him. Translation: This should not be part of the campaign!
I am a saved LDS mormon, I know all about it. Romney in the white house is more dangerous than reid in the senate !....AND he'll lose to Obama because of all this crazy stuff he'll expect US to defend.
OK I guess that means you will vote for Obama!
You don’t need to, just help make sure Romney doesn’t win the primary....See, now is the time to be having this discussion while there is a chance to stop him AND fire Obama.
MORMONism is NOwhere close to Catholicism.
Does this mean that you think that a person's religion would NOT influence their lives?
John Kennedys Catholicism was a big issue that eventually was proved insignificant.
Thats because Catholics are Christians...
But Williard Mitt Romney is a Mormon...
Mormonism is not Christianity...
Thank you Sentinel, Merry Christmas to you and your family and Blessed healthy New Year and peace of the Lord in your heart always.
Any of you exmos got an old TR they could give to Sandy or Resty this Christmas?
It seems to quite a desireable thing to have, but I never heard either of them say that they’ve got one.
It appears to be REALLY useful if a MORMON has one.
Not all Christians agree. For instance, Bob Jones has taken a ver hard line against the Catholic Church, equating it with the Mormon Church as counterfeit Christianity, and both churches are referred to as cults on the BJU website.
Nana: Mormonism is not Christianity...
Burk: Not all Christians agree
Well some people may not agree...
But people who know and believe God and the Bible do ...
and more importantly...
Mormonism does not measure up to the way God describes Christianity in His Book...
You need to argue with God...
He wrote the Book on Christianity...
My point was that not all Christians agree that Catholicism is truly Christian. As an example, Bob Jones puts the Catholic Church on par with the Mormon Church, classifying both as satanic.
And that is just a recent example. Go back to the 1960 election and you will find that opinion much more widespread, or at least more frequently expressed.
Rick Perry’s pastor friend believes that the Catholics and Jews are all going to hell along with the Mormons. It’s nothing but bigotry and ignorance.
Anti Mormon trash is big business - the anti Mormons have a lot at stake; they need to keep the trash going in order to sell their books, magazines, and go on speaking tours. This has been going on since Joseph Smith’s first vision.
There are no paid clergy in the LDS Church. That infuriates the anti Mormons most of all.
Merry Christmas. Yes, Mormons celebrate the birth of Christ; we love, worship, and adore Him our Savior and the Savior of the World. Amen.
Taking comments out of context and presenting them as if they were LDS Gospel is very unbecoming and sneaky. You know very well that we believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is precious and sacred to us. Jesus Christ is the Great Jehovah of the Old Testament and the Savior and Redeemer of the New Testament. The Holy Ghost is my Best Friend and He ever lives to draw us closer to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
Stop trashing my Church. Merry Christmas.
The anti Mormons are in bed with Obama, the liberal media, and the democrats. Go figure.
The holy ghost is my Best Friend and he ever lives to draw us closer to our heavenly father and jesus christ.
Sandy this might be correct in Mormon belief and the Mormon gods..
But it has nothing to do with God of the Christian Bible...
As you have been told several times before...
To even sugget it might is to pronounce heresy..
Christ said "By every idle word shall ye be judged", you Mormons own this as long as you keep claiming that Young and Smith were prophets.
Heck McConkie was an "apostle", I quoted from his book MORMON DOCTRINE, and you say it's not DOCTRINE ? Even a lawyer should realize how foolish this looks.
