Creation

 

 

Christ was aided in the creation of this earth by many of the noble and great spirit children of the Father

 

 

 

Mormons say the following thing about the creation of this earth: ‘Christ, acting under the direction of the Father, was and is the Creator of all things …. That he was aided in the creation of this earth by ‘many of the noble and great’ spirit children of the Father is evident from Abraham’s writings….. Michael or Adam was one of these. Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Peter, James, and John, Joseph Smith, and many other ‘noble and great’ ones played a part in the great creative enterprise’ (Bruce McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 1993, page 169)

 

Confutation

 

The Scripture teaches that God created all things by His Son. Paul says: “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth” (Colossians 1:16 – NKJV); the author of the epistle to the Hebrews says that God has appointed His Son heir of all things “through whom also He made the worlds” (Hebrews 1:2 – NKJV); and John says: “All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:3 – NKJV).

Therefore, the creation of this earth was not a sort of co-operative venture between Jesus Christ (under the direction of His Father) and the spirits of certain pre-existent men, but a work which was made by God the Father through His Son.
