Because the LDS does not believe in a different Jesus of the Bible!

It is you folks that embrass the Pagan version of ANOTHER JESUS the one from Consatantine known as the Nicene Creed. Their is no such referance in the Bible called the Nicene Creed.

The NC was never Authorized by a servants of the Lord, that were call as was Aaron!

The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.



What exactly is it about the Nicene creed that you don't like, rest? Seems to me that this is pretty much what Utah Girl claims she believes about Jesus. What is the problem? Is it the "catholic" part? I admit I have problems with that, but otherwise it seems pretty "orthodox". Where is your objection?

What IS it about 'official LDS sources' (ref #463) that causes you to recoil so violently from them?

Is it the realization that perhaps the thing you so wish to be true and pure, has warts, errors and a crumbly foundation?
