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.

  1. Interesting take. I think the same can be said of several other things. For example, how the whole Prop 8 thing played out sits will with this statement.

    Thanks for the thought.

  2. That is a good measure to judge who we are following.

    Like Moroni’s “Does it invite to believe in Christ and do good and pray or not?” We can also add, “Does it add anything positive or merely destroy and take away?”
