Exodus 3:13,14; “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. 15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”
John 4:26; “Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.”
John 8:58; “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”
The Great “I Am” ……. He. Is. God. If you were a child the first time you heard that Jesus is God it probably wasn’t a game changer in your life. Hearing the news as an adult is another story altogether.
Many Mormons live a life that’s so sheltered this epiphany will never reach their ears, but when or if it does, the shock on their faces tells the story of the tremendous meaning this news brings! He’s God! Imagine looking into the eyes of the One who created you and the ground you stand upon. The Church is dogmatic about their views and will denounce Trinitarian doctrines to their death. However, the title page on their beloved canon (Book of Mormon) boldly proclaims the very thing they denounce.
