To address Germanus's question, What does Mormonism say about that
?:We believe in one God the father almighty. Maker of heaven and Earth and every thing visible and invisible. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š And in one Lord Jesus Christ , the son of God, the only begotten. Begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of Light, True God of True God. Begotten not made.
The First Article of Faith of the LDS Church is: ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š We believe in God the Eternal Father, and in His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.Of one essence of the Father by whom all things were made.
I am not certain what this means. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š The LDS Church does not believe in the Trinity. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š The LDS Church believes that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are separate and distinct beings, always and forever. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š We believe that all scriptural references to the Father and the Son being one is in reference to their unity of purpose, as Christ told His apostles to be one, even as He and His Father were one. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š This is, admittedly, a substantial deviation from what most mainstream Christians believe.Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was born of the Holy Spirit and the Ever Virgin Mary and became man. And he was crucified by Pontious Pilate and suffered and was buried and the third day he rose again according to the scriptures.
The LDS Church believes this. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š We believe in the literal resurrection of the Savior.And he shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. Whose kingdom shall have no end.
We believe in, and look forward with great anticipation to, the Second Coming of the Savior. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š We believe that Christ shall establish His Kingdom on earth, and that all men will stand before God to be judged according to their works.And in the Holy Spirit. The Lord and Giver of Life. who proceeds from the Father. Who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified. Who spoke by the prophets.
Again, we believe in the Holy Ghost, that he/she (
) is a personage of spirit, separate and distinct from the Father and the Son, and who is worshipped as an equal member of the Godhead.And I believe in one Holy catholic and apostolic church.
No, we do not believe in the Catholic Church. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š We believe in one true and living Church, restored in these latter-days as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, presided over by Jesus Christ, and directed through his holy prophets and the Council of the Twelve Apostles as currently constituted upon the earth.In one Baptism for the remission of sins.
The LDS Church believes in and practices baptism by immersion for the remission of sins. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š The LDS Church also believes in and practices the laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the age to come.
We look with great anticipation to the literal resurrection of all mankind from the dead, when the spirit and the flesh shall be reunited and thereafter enjoy everlasting life.
Hope this was helpful.
