Why Protestants Agree With Mormons? Part Nine

"Here are some examples. [Part eight of eight]

God is a Man

The LDS Church teaches that not only does God the Father have a body, but that He is also a man. This belief really freaks Protestants and they like to use the mantra "God was never a man" against the LDS members.

Why do Protestants actually agree?

Once again their Trinitarian belief draws them into a roundabout agreement with the LDS Church. They believe that Jesus was with God and is God. Well? Jesus was born on Earth and received a physical body, right? Which means, according to their Trinitarian belief, God was born and was a man! You've gotta love the irony that some Evangelicals well argue with LDS members till they're blue in the face that God was never a man, then go to church and read tracts titled "Why God Became Man". Go figure. Also, He's called our FATHER in Heaven, not our Entity in Heaven. I could be off, but the word father usually denoted Male." (Kelly Bingham, Why Protestants Agree With Mormons (They Just Don't Realize It), www.moroni10.com, December 7, 2007, Brackets added)

"Will we see all three members of the Trinity when we get to Heaven?

The Bible says, "In Him (Christ) dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead BODILY." Col. 2:9 Since Christ is the express image of God in bodily form, it seems clear to me that He is the only One of the Trinity who will be visible when we get to glory. The Scripture does say in Revelation 22:1 that "the Throne" is "the Throne of God and The Lamb." So God the Father and Christ will reign together throughout the ages of eternity. However, Christ is the only member of the God head who will be visible to our eyes." (Answers to your Bible Questions, Charles Halff, The Christian Jew Foundation, San Antonio, Texas, 1972, p. 39)

Jesus said, "God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." John 4:24

Sorry, Mormons and Protestants don't agree either.
The writer should have done better homework.
Remember all Protestants: Test all things to show them to be approved by God.


About Me

My photo
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.
