According to the Bible, Jesus Christ was the only begotten son of the father. But what exactly does that mean? Did anyone ever explain this? What does begotten mean? Does that mean that the rest of us were not begotten? Were we all adopted or something? How can he be our older brother if he was begotten and we weren't?
I believe that Mormons are the only religion that believe in a pre-existence, where everyone lived with god. We all came here to earth to gain a body, which is one of the steps necessary to become a god and create our own worlds...
Mormons also believe that Jesus was Jehovah, the god of the Old Testament. But if Jesus hadn't been born yet and hadn't received a body, how could he be a god already? Doh!
And what is up with Jesus being our OLDER brother? In the scriptures, it is always the older brother who is the fuck up. Cain and Abel. Jacob and Esau. Laman and Nephi.
In the great council before life on earth, that everyone attended, god proposed a plan whereby all man might return to live with god, if they chose to obey. Satan proposed an alternate plan that would not give man his free agency but everyone would be forced to obey. All who agreed to satan's plan were born Mormon. Tudum, tch!
Why did we need to "return" to god? If we were already there, why did god want to send us all away when he knew that the less noble would never return? And they say "god loves you".
So Jesus, our older brother who really wasn't our brother, became a god even before he was born. The guy doesn't even follow his own rules.
And then Jesus, who is god, is born of a virgin. Was Jesus his own father? Did "god" come down and have sex with Mary? If so, he must have been married to her, but when did that happen? The Bible says Mary was not wed. So god fornicated with Mary, the damn hypocrite! Jesus turns out to be the bastard child of god and Mary.
According to Mormons, Jesus created the earth, not god. So if he created the earth, it is also logical to assume that he wrote all the natural laws that govern it, such as gravity, etc. Why would Jesus then come to earth and break all those laws that he wrote... flying around, walking on water, bringing the dead back to life.
That leads me to another question. How could Jesus create a physical world when he didn't even have a body? Isn't the main reason for having a body to feel pain, sadness, sorrow, joy, etc. How could Jesus have these emotions if he was the bodyless god of the Old Testament? Ex: God is angry with the wicked Israelites when they build the golden calf.
If we were sent here to feel joy, then I must assume that we couldn't feel joy before. Why then did everyone shout for joy when the plan of salvation was proposed? I thought we can't feel emotions as a spirit. How can satan be hateful and angry if he doesn't have a body?
And how could anyone, even a god, create a planet as massive as earth in only one week?
If god has a physical body, how come his "children" are all spirits? Why is the "holy spirit" a member of the godhead if you have to have a body to be a god? Who is the spirit anyway? What did he ever do to get to be one of the top-three? He just kinda shows up out of nowhere.
If god is perfect and god created me, how come I am not perfect? If I am not perfect and no one is, why does god command everyone to be perfect? I guess god wants to damn us all to hell. But just remember, he loves you, more than you can comprehend.
As you can see, the more you think about the ridiculous Mormon gospel, the more confusing it is. But god's house is a house of order, not confusion. HUH?
I'm still waiting for the lightning bolt to strike me dead.
In the name of cheese and rice, amen.
I have no doubt that Jesus was a great man and a great teacher. His words are worthy of study and application. My only problem with Christianity is the way they have turned this great teacher into a god. He was not a god, nor a son of god. He was a man. He has my respect as a man, but not as a god.
Just another evil apostate...
