Five Marks of the Divinity of Jesus Christ “The most fundamental doctrine of true Christianity is the divine birth of the child Jesus. It is a doctrine not comprehended by the world, misinterpreted by [many] Christian churches, and even misunderstood by some members of the true Church.

The paternity of Jesus Christ is one of the mysteries of godliness.

It may only be comprehended by the spiritually minded… … I am bold to say to you, … Jesus Christ is the Son of God in the most literal sense. The body in which He performed His mission in the flesh was sired by that same Holy Being we worship as God, our Eternal Father. He 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, 9 December 1979. Continue Reading »

 Gospel Through the Ages, p. 13 “God provided the gift of the Holy Ghost as a means by which “a man may place himself in touch with the whole universe and draw knowledge from it, including the beings of superior intelligence that it contains.” The Spirit of God was also provided to serve with the Holy Ghost as another guide for man in helping him to establish communication with the Eternal Father.” — Milton Hunter Continue Reading »

“But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Matthew 15:9

 Conference Report, ‘Nurture a Testimony,’ April 1953, p. 124 “Adam was the son of God. He was our elder brother, not older than Jesus but he was our brother in the same sense that Jesus was our brother, and he “fell” to earth life. He did not come up through an unbroken line of organic evolution. There had to be a fall. “Adam fell that men might be” (2 Ne. 2:25).” — Marion G. Romney Continue Reading »

 September 19 – Lessons of the Transfiguration. Matthew 17:1-5 “And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.  And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.  Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.  While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” Continue Reading »

Multiple Gods and People from Other Planets

 Journal of Discourses 7:285 “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 [emp. added]
