Is Jesus a liar? [Jun. 4th, 2006|09:35 pm]
Are Mormons Christians?

I've had a lot of you say to me that there is no big difference... we both follow "Jesus" etc. I've told you that we don't worship the same Jesus. One of the main problems I have with your Jesus is that he starts out a man. Our Jesus, the Christian Jesus, was fully man and fully GOD. Jesus, Himself, says so in scripture and the Jews were going to stone Him for saying just that.


John 10: 22 At that time the Feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem; 23 it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in the portico of Solomon. R664 24 The R665 Jews then gathered around Him, and were saying to Him, "How long will F117 You keep us in suspense? If You are the F118 Christ, tell us plainly." R666 25 Jesus answered them, "I R667 told you, and you do not believe; the R668 works that I do in My Father's name, these testify of Me. 26 "But you do not believe because you R669 are not of My sheep. 27 "My sheep hear R670 My voice, and I R671 know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal R672 life to them, and they will never perish; and no R673 one will snatch them out of My hand. 29 "My F119 Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. 30 "I R674 and the Father are one." F120

31 The Jews picked R675 up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?" 33 The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; R676 and because You, being a man, make R677 Yourself out to be God." 34 Jesus answered them, "Has it not been written in your R678 Law, R679 `I R680 SAID, YOU ARE GODS'? 35 "If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 36 do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified R681 and sent R682 into the world, `You are blaspheming,' because I said, `I R683 am the Son of God'? 37 "If R684 I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38 but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the R685 works, so that you may know F121 and understand that the R686 Father is in Me, and I in the Father." 39 Therefore they R687 were seeking again to seize Him, and He R688 eluded their grasp.

40 And He went away again R689 beyond the Jordan to the place where John was first baptizing, and He was staying there. 41 Many came to Him and were saying, "While John performed no sign, R690 yet everything R691 John said about this man was true." 42 Many R692 believed in Him there.

So, is Jesus a liar?

Nature of Jesus

Joseph Smith taught that God the Father started out as a man. I think we teach that Jesus was created fully divine, a member of the Godhead, but separate from God the Father. Just my understanding, though.
