‘I and my Father are one.’ John 10:30

 Today we’re looking at one of the contradictions in Mormonism. To say this is a major one would be an understatement! It’s little wonder members can be confused – unfortunately, it comes from the hands of its leadership. I realize we’ve looked at this before, but it bears repeating as you meet with loved ones during the holidays!

Check out what the Church said about their belief in the Trinity –

Mormon Godhead “The Trinity of traditional Christianity is referred to as the Godhead by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. …Yet, Church teachings about the Godhead differ from those of traditional Christianity. For example, while some believe the three members of the Trinity are of one substance, Latter-day Saints believe they are three physically separate beings, but fully one in love, purpose and will.”

With that in mind, here’s what the Book of Mormon says – (more…)

One God 2.0

As you might imagine, leaving Mormonism comes with a laundry list of new experiences and seemingly never-ending surprises. One of the biggest shocks for me was learning there’s only one God.

For the next few days we’re going to look at some of the key biblical elements of the Trinity that sets Christianity apart from Mormonism.
