BTW I am asking all these questions of the Mormons here because my grandma, who is LDS, simply does not know enough to be able to explain this to me and I want to understand her beliefs.
Parker thanks so much for taking the time to respond to my questions. I still get hung up on the passage from Galatians because for people who believe in the Bible but not the BoM we see that passage as almost being written just for Joseph Smith. I always thought that that passage in Galatians was obviously not talking about a real angel but a demon pretending to be an angel. Please don’t think I am attacking Mormonism though, I am saying how I understand it so maybe you can expalin it differently to me.
Here are a few more questions:
Parhon made the argument that people can be married for eternity here on earth and that that does not oppose what Jesus said about marriage at the Ressurection. But in the book Gospel Principles it says people can be eternally married on earth or in Heaven. Doesn’t the or in Heaven part oppose Jesus’ teaching on marriage?
In the book Gospel Principles it says that in the Exaltation we will become gods. It does not say angels like Todd keeps trying to say it says, it says gods. How does that work in line with all the teachings about no other gods, especially from the OT?
Also the in the section entitled Exaltation it says that God the Father was once a man on an earth, not the earth, just like Jesus Christ was on this earth. Does that also imply that God the Father has a god the father just like Jesus Christ does? Isn’t this then polytheism?
Thank you so much from Pahron, Murdock, Todd, and Parker who realize I am just asking questions and not attacking them. Also thank you so much for your answers and patience in answering my questions.
