As a Catholic Christian I understand that anyone who is baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are members of the Church whether they claim to be or not because as a Christian and this foundation we call baptism we can agree in the simple truths of Christianity like there is a God.
But how can Mormons call themselves Christian if they are not baptized the way all other Christians are? And if they are indeed Christian then why take out in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit? Or why was there a need for a change or correction in this format that goes all the way back to Jesus Christ himself?
Joseph Smith claims to have seen a vision of God and Jesus, two distinctavily different bodies, now as a Christian I understand that Jesus was given a human body through the birth of his mother Mary. And I also know as a Christian that when Jesus rose from the dead, He had a body but it was different, it took awhile for all the disciples to recognize Him and I know that it was a real body because Thomas was allowed to touch Him and His wounds. The Jews would not even dare to say the word God, and that is another reason why God had to send his begotten Son to this world as one of us, God became one of us through his Son Jesus Christ.
But can anyone please explain to me how Joseph Smith was truly able to see two very distinctive bodies of God and Jesus?
As Christians we all believe in the Trinity, one God in three natures. And understanding meta physicis I understand how God can be everywhere all the time.
If I took a reasonable approach, this was Joseph Smith’s imagination or simple way of teaching fictional theology of his beliefs or “vision” of the way things ought to be from his perspective.
