Christ: Begotten of Mary and Elohim

"Since Adam, all who have been born into the world have come as the offspring of mortal parents, except on the Lord Jesus. He came into the world as the Son of a mortal mother and an Immortal Father" (Gospel Doctrine, pg 85)
" come to this particular earth as the literal Son of the Father....He was born unto this world as the Son of Mary (inheriting from her the power of mortality) and as the Son of Man of Holiness (inheriting from Him the powers of immortality). (Gospel Doctrine, pg 129)
Brigham Young stated: "[Jesus] partook of the flesh and blood-was begotten of His Father, as we were of our fathers." (Journal of Discourses, July 8, 1860)
Heber C. Kimball stated: "I was naturally begotten; so was my father, and also my Savior Jesus Christ...[T]here was nothing unnatural about it." (Journal of Discourses, September 2, 1860)
Brigham Young stated: "The man Joseph, the husband of Mary, did not, that we know of, have more than one wife, but Mary the wife of Joseph had another husband." (Deseret News, October 10, 1866)
"The fleshly body of Jesus required a Mother as well as a Father. Therefore, the Father and Mother of Jesus, according to the flesh, must have been associated together in the capacity of Husband and Wife; hence the Virgin Mary must have been, for the time being, the lawful wife of God the Father: we use the term lawful Wife, because it would be blasphemous in the highest degree to say that He overshadowed her or begat the Savior unlawfully. It would have been unlawful for any man to have unterfered with Mary, who was already espoused to Joseph; for such a heinous crime would have subjected both the guilty parties to death, according to the law of Moses. But God having created all men and women, had the most perfect right to do with His own creation, according to His holy will and pleasure: He had a lawful right to overshadow the Virgin Mary in the capacity of the husband, and beget a Son, although she was espoused to another; for the law which He gave to govern men and women was not intended to govern Himself, or to prescribe rules for his own conduct. It was also lawful in Him, after having thus dealt with Mary, to give her to Joseph her espoused husband. Whether God the Father gave Mary to Joseph for time only, of for time and eternity, we are not informed. Inasmuch as God was the first husband to her, it may be that He only gave her to be the wife of Joseph while in this mortal state, and that He intended after the resurrection to again take her as one of his own wives to raise up immortal spirits in eternity." (Orson Pratt, "Celestial Marriage", The Seer, October 1855, vol. 1, no. 10, 158)
The conception and birth of Jesus Christ is not as described as above. Spend some time in your own Bible and note the true way Christ came to earth.


About Me

Michigan, United States
I spent a lot of time deciding if I should write this blog or not. I'm not a great writer and I'm not going to pretend to be. I need to share what I have learned and I might not make some people happy with what I am saying. This blog is a way for me to release the thoughts and feelings that come with knowing I grew up in the wrong religion. A healing process if you will.

How To Read This Blog

Please start with the month of February 2007 and read backwards. This is the most effective way to understand, in order, why I say what I do.
