Multiple gods and People from Other Planets
Journal of Discourses 7:286; “Here let me state to all philosophers of every class upon the earth, When you tell me that father Adam was made as we make adobies [sic] from the earth, you tell me what I deem an idle tale. When you tell me that the beasts of the field were produced in that manner, you are speaking idle words devoid of meaning. There is no such thing in all the eternities where the Gods dwell. Mankind are here because they are the offspring of parents who were first brought here from another planet, and power was given them to propagate their species, and they were commanded to multiply and replenish the earth.” – Brigham Young, October 9, 1859, Salt Lake City
Genesis 2:7; “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
Where is this enlightenment in the Bible?
The first problem I see that needs serious attention is the lie that there are multiple gods. Our Bible is very clear when God said there are no other gods. Isaiah 43:10-11 is merely one of hundreds of verses where God lets us know truth and how things are done.
The second thing is obvious as well. The Bible tells us God made man from the dust of the ground. How he ever came up with the idea people were shipped in from other planets is beyond my imagination. It actually sounds like a bad episode of Star Trek. While I may sound facetious with this, my heart is grieving for those caught in the snares of this lie.
After speaking with my mother this morning it became clear once again how disappointed she is that I’m following the God of the Bible. Before I could get into any conversation with her about it she abruptly cut the conversation off when it headed down the road of any biblical talk. She asked me if I was tired yet of doing the work I do and when I answered that I’m not, her disappointment with me was apparent.
How I pray the Lord would open her eyes to these fallacies!
Pray with us for not only my mother but all the other Mormons as well.
