The Godhead - God

 

 

God the Father had a Father, and God’s Father also had a Father and so on

 

 

Mormons teach that God the Father had a Father, and God’s Father also had a Father and so on. President Brigham Young said: ‘He [God] is our Father – the Father of our spirits, and was once a man in mortal flesh as we are, and is now an exalted being. How many Gods there are, I do not know. But there never was a time when there were not Gods ….’ (Journal of Discourses, vol. 7, page 333); Heber C. Kimball, who was a member of the first Presidency, said: ‘…. Then we shall go back to our Father and God, who is connected with one who is still farther back; and this Father is connected with one still further back, and so on …’ (Journal of Discourses, vol. 5, page 19), and Orson Pratt said: “We were begotten by our Father in Heaven; the person of our Father in Heaven was begotten on a previous heavenly world by His Father; and again, He was begotten by a still more ancient Father; and so on, from generation to generation … we wonder in our minds, how far back the genealogy extends, and how the first world was formed, and the first father was begotten’ (The Seer, page 132).

 

Confutation

 

The Holy Scripture states that “there is one God” (1 Timothy 2:5 – NKJV), who is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 15:6). He is “the only true God” (John 17:3 – NKJV), besides Him there is no God because God Himself said: “Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me …. I am the First and I am the Last; Besides me there is no God” (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6 – NKJV).

Mormons, therefore, are greatly mistaken. Their God is not the God we have known, but another god. I exhort you to expose their false teaching.
