Creator God

The difference between God and the Devil, is that God creates and organizes, while the whole study of the Devil is to destroy.” (Discourses of Brigham Young, sel. John A. Widtsoe [1954], 69.)

I think this is a fascinating statement, especially in light of apologetics. Apologetics, in my view, are about organizing, creating, and building up. Anti-Mormonism is about destruction and criticism.

Oi!

Today is my last day of Portuguese class.  So, I will have more time to keep up with my blog! I’ve been really busy lately mostly because of all the busy work associate with learning another language.

I recently came into contact with the founders of this website. http://mormonsmadesimple.com/index.html It’s pretty neat and would make a great tool to help introduce your non-LDS friends to our beliefs and practices.

Every once in a while, it’s nice to throw out topics for discussion. I’d like to throw out a topic now. Hopefully you can share your thoughts by commenting on this post.  Here’s the topic: “In what ways does Jesus resurrection demonstrate that God the Father is (or could be) embodied?”

To kick off the discussion: “Christ…is the image of God” (2 Cor. 4:4).If Christ, (at the time of 2 Cor. 4:4) was a resurrected embodied being, and if Christ is the image of God, then God is an embodied being.
