The Lord has provided for us abundantly in life. From the comfort we have in knowing Jesus is our Redeemer to His unchanging word where we can go to for guidance; we are truly blessed! Today we’re looking at the subject of monotheism. The Bible contains numerous passages describing God that can keep anyone busy for quite awhile. What I found so endearing when I became a believer is learning that names actually carry a descriptive meaning and one of the major shocks for me when I left Mormonism was finding out there are no other gods. Man can’t become a god and there wasn’t a council of gods who created the earth as Joseph Smith taught (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p 349).

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p 345; “God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted Man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens. That is the great secret… It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the character of God and to know…that he was once a man like us. Here, then, is eternal life—to know that only wise and true God, and you have got to learn how to become Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done before you. .. God himself, the father of us all dwelt on an earth the same as Jesus Christ.”

September 5 – Romans 1:18-20; “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”
