What Are Mormons Saying Behind Your Back?
Volume 2: Christ was NOT Begotten by the Holy Spirit.
9 Beliefs of the Prophets and Apostles of the Mormon Church which support the belief that Jesus Christ was not Begotton by the the Holy Spirit, but rather the Virgin Mary and the Mormon God had literal intercourse.
by Timothy Lee Unrine
Christians of all denominations believe that the Virgin Mary was told that she was going to give birth to the Savior:
"The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God." (Luke 1:35 NIV).
Joseph was told too: "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1:20 - 21 NIV).
This is the "keystone" to Christianity; having the faith and belief in the Virgin Birth of Mary, that the Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit; not some physical intimacy between an immortal God and Mary.
If front of us the Mormons are saying that they are Christians, that they believe in the same Christ as we do. However, behind our backs, the Mormons say that Jesus was NOT begotten of the Holy Spirit - clearly not in line with the Bible.
I can understand why Mormon Romney doesn't want to answer any questions on his faith. MormonVoice and FairLDS are trying hard to convince America that Mormons are Christians; however, behind our backs - Mormon theology is not Christianity at all.
Behind our backs the Mormons say that Jesus was not begotten by the Holy Ghost as the Bible clearly says. Mormons say that the Mormon God had come down and had physical relations with Mary to conceive Jesus.
BRIGHAM SAYS: NOT BEGOTTEN BY THE HOLY GHOST.
"When the Virgin Mary conceived the Jesus, the Father had begotten him in his own likeness. He was not begotten by the Holy Ghost." (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Volume 1, Pg 50 - 51).
BRIGHAM SAYS: HOLY GHOST WOULD IMPREGNATE FEMALES BEING BAPTIZED.
"If the Son was begotten by the Holy Ghost, it would be very dangerous to baptize and confirm females and give the Holy Ghost to them, lest he should beget children to be palmed off on the Elders by the people, bringing the Elders into great difficulty." (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Volume 1, Pg 50 - 51).
JOSEPH F SMITH SAYS: BIBLE DOES NOT SAY JESUS BEGOTTEN BY HOLY GHOST.
"They tell us the Book of Mormon states that Jesus was begotten of the Holy Ghost. I challenge that statement. The Book of Mormon teaches no such thing! Neither does the Bible." (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, Volume 1, Pg 19).
JOSEPH F SMITH SAYS: CHRIST NOT BEGOTTEN OF THE HOLY GHOST.
"CHRIST NOT BEGOTTEN OF HOLY GHOST. I believe firmly that Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God in the flesh. He taught this doctrine to his disciples. He did not teach them that He was the Son of the Holy Ghost, but the Son of the Father....Christ was begotten of God. He was not born without the aid of Man, and that Man was GOD!" (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, Volume 1, Pg 18).
BRIGHAM SAYS: THE BIRTH OF THE SAVIOR WAS JUST LIKE NATURAL MAN.
"The birth of the Savior was as natural as are the births of our children; it was the result of natural action. He partook of the flesh and blood --was begotten of his Father, as we were of our fathers." (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Volume 8, Pg 115).
ERZA BENSON SAYS: JESUS NOT BEGOTTEN BY THE HOLY GHOST
"I am bold to say to you . . . The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints proclaims that Jesus is the Son of God in the most literal sense. The body in which he performed His mission in the flesh was sired by that same Holy Being we worship as God, our Eternal Father. Jesus was not the son of Joseph, nor WAS HE BEGOTTEN BY THE HOLY GHOST." ("Five Marks of the Divinity of Jesus Christ," Ensign, Dec 2001, pg. 8.)
BRUCE McCONKIE SAYS: CHRIST NOT CONCEIVED BY HOLY GHOST
"SON OF MARY. . . but the Holy Ghost is not the Father of Christ and when the child was born, he was the Son of the Eternal Father." (Bruce R McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p 273).
BRUCE McCONKIE SAYS: CHRIST WAS CONCEIVED JUST LIKE ALL BABIES ARE CONCEIVED.
"Christ was begotten by an immortal Father in the same way that mortal men are begotten by mortal father." (Bruce McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, pg 547).
BRUCE McCONKIE EXPLAINS HOW GOD CAN HAVE SEX WITH MARY, BUT SHE CAN STILL BE A VIRGIN.
"Our Lord is the only mortal person ever born to a virgin, because he is the only person who ever had an immortal Father." (Bruce McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, pg 822).
