Today we’ll be covering questions 9 and 10 of our ongoing series based on the article, ‘51 questions that might lead you to Mormonism’.

Why does Paul say that there are lots of gods? (1 Cor 8:5)

In respect to the Word, and reading it in context, I’d like to extend this portion of scripture to verse 6.

1 Corinthians 8:5-6 “For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.”

 April 11 – Separating wheat from the chaff. Luke 24:36-9 & Acts 1:9-11; “And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto the, Why are ye troubled? And why do thought arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.”

“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, Ye men of Galilee, Why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”

John 17:11; 20:17; “And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee.  Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.  Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”

Isaiah 43:10-11; “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.”

templeAs of late, the LDS Church is building temples at a record pace. According to their site they now have 155 operating temples, and 25 others in various stages of construction. Another page gives the reason why they build so many temples. Here in part, is what they said –
