        The Flying Spaghetti Monster Created The Earth. Every one knows this - if you just open your eyes, you will see The Truth of it, because there is documented proof and evidence. Clinging to your old political religion is silly. Grow up - get with The Truth and stop being so closed minded. I genuinely hope you will learn to see the way the World Really Is - instead of this Jesus blasphemy that will result in - No Beer For You in heaven. :

        The word of His mouth actually created it.
        "...and He said..."
        This entire universe is simple a breath from Creator, this is why He is in all and everywhere.

        "..My Words will not return empty (void) but accomplish what I want AND prosper in the reason/logic I send it..."

        The word (a portion of himself) became flesh (even as he made man with his breath) dwelling with other men, showing the glory of Creator (as adam did before his choice to know good and evil).

        Jesus is the Son of God and God is his Father. The doctrine of the Holy Trinity is one of the corner teachings of Christianity.

        According to this doctrine, there is both unity and personality in God, in whom there is a union of three Persons, consubstantial with each other and united in their Will and Intellect, and all their Divine attributes and Power. By this virtue, whatever one Person of the Trinity does or accomplishes, the other two participate in the work also.

        The Father is the Creator, for it is His particular characteristic as He is the Source of all that Is, and first and foremost of the Word, who is God and incarnate Jesus Christ himself. The Father created all things, but the Son shared in His creative works for He was the Reason for the creation of the world. The Spirit also shared in the work since he is the Love of the Father and of the Son.

        In this way, the Creative faculty, although it is properly that of the Father is shared by the other two Persons. By the same reason, although Redemption was the work of the Son, it is also shared by the other Persons who collaborated in his work and guided him during his pilgrimage on the earth.

        Therefore, Creation is the work of the Holy Trinity, and the particular work of the Father of Lights, Source of all Things, and of the Greatest Good: Jesus Christ himself, Son of God and Word Incarnate.

      As the Father and the Son are one in purpose, they both made the Earth. Perhaps we can see it as there being one as the foreman and one as the laborer.

      Yes, He did.  Jesus is God the Father, who is Spirit (the Holy Spirit).  Why not read Isaiah 9:6?  The rest of the Bible, if you study it fully, reveals this truth.  What, do some 'Christians' believe in plural gods?  The Bible is clear - there is only One God.  Look at 1 Tim 4:10 "For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers."

      John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word...and the Word was God."
      John 1:14 "And the Word became flesh"
      John 14:8 "Philip said to Him, 'Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.'  Jesus said to him, 'Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?"

      DO YOU KNOW HIM?

        Interesting in John 1:1 it says; In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Showing that there were two entities present before the creation.

        To be coupled with that statement, the original story of creation in Genesis 1-26 reads; "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:" showing multiple entities present.

        Also in several verses of the new testament we find Jesus praying to God the Father declaring such things as; Luke 22: 42 "Not my will but thine be done." Showing that Jesus has distinct will power from his Father none the less keeping true to the "oneness" that the two share in puropse.

        Many times in the Bible the word "one" is used to describe unity rather than a physical attachment, such is the case in Ephesians 5:31; "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh." In this respect a man is not expected to be physically "One" with his wife, but rather to align his path in life with that of his wife, (and vice versa,) that the two may fufill the needs of oneanother and thus become a perfected household unit. Thus marriage is the closest emulation of the relationship that the Father and the Son share. Which is why Marriage and families are so important for our spiritual development.

            I think people have a good grasp on the Bible, though nothing of the topic at hand has anything to do with our eternal salvation, ie. faith and endurance in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, and receiving the holy spirit. Everything else is less important.

          If you really STUDY the Bible, you will see that word "with" God is 'pros', which literally means 'to' (in both verses 1 & 3). If you look up 'with' (as in beside), it is not in these verses, but is the Greek word 'par'. In John 1:1 the word 'God' (which is theon) is the object, not the subject, to whom the Word was speaking.  If you look up 'theon', the root of which is 'theos' (subject) this is what is used in the phrase, "and the Word was God".  'Theos' is the Greek rendition of the Hebrew word 'elohim', which includes angels and magistrates. 

          You yourself believe that man is 'elohim' (gods - in the plural sense), as man is included in 'elohim'. However, where Mormons have it wrong, is that man does not become a god in and of himself.  He is part of the elohim (family of God) when he comes to Christ by faith and is adopted into God's family (Rom 8:15). Look at Jesus' words in John 10:34 "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?"  This comes from Psalm 82:6: "I said, 'You are gods [elohim], And all of you are sons of the Most High."

          Consider then that God (the Word) spoke to His angels and magistrates when He said, "Let us make man in our image" (Gen 1:26).  The angels were created on day 4; man was created on day 6.  However, it was not the angels or magistrates that created man, for when we see accounts of man beging created, it is by the LORD (Yehovah) God (elohim)...the Lord of elohim.  Confirmed that the singluar of the word God (used in conjunction with the word LORD) is written in Ps 18:31 "For who is God [Elowah] besides the LORD?"

          God became a man, and as the 'Son of Man', Jesus was fully man, yet was also fully God, "For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form" (Col 2:9).  God is Spirit, the Spirit that conceived Jesus and brought forth God as a man.  However, God is omnipresent and was not limited to the body of Christ.  For this reason, God was not only the Father of the Son, but was greater than He, for Jesus was made a little lower than elohim (also translated angels) - Ps 8:5; Heb 2:9.  This is the meaning of Jesus and the Father being 'one'.  Even the husband and wife are 'one flesh' (spiritually).  God overshadowed Mary to bring Himself into the world; likewise Adam needs Eve to 'go forth and multiply'.  Elohim means (multiply, great, exceeding).  This is yet another way man is made in God's 'image'.

          Col 1:15 states of Jesus that "He is the image of the invisible God." (Remember, God is Spirit - John 4:24)?  I have a hub on this called "GOD: Let Us Make Man In Our Image?"  and, if you want to study the One God, I have a hub called "Let Me Tell You WHO GOD IS!". 

          God created the earth.  Since we've addressed John 1:1-2, let's go on with verse 3 (the Word of God being the subject): "All things came into being through Him [the Word], and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being."

            Because there are so many different interpretations of biblical script there continues to be a multitude of Christian religions which accept a variety of different thoughts concerning the same passages.
            In the respects of Mormon doctrine concerning the potential to become like God, you will note that biblical script agrees with this sentiment as it has never been stated by LDS prophets that we will become equal to or greater than God the Father. However to become Gods is an accurate portrayal when the Bible tells us . . .
            We were created in the image of God
            God is the father of our spirits
            We are the offspring of God
            Christ calls us gods
            Man has become as God
            We will inherit all things
            We will be co-heirs with Christ of all things
            We will have glory
            We will have thrones
            We will be filled with the fullness of God
            We will be partakers of the divine nature of God
            We will be one with God
            We shall be like Him
            Our bodies will be fashioned like His glorious body
            We can gain perfection

            Again we believe that man has the potential to become like God and not equal to God. As for the issues concerning John 1:1 I believe that there is error in the translation process of biblical text along with fallacious tampering which has brought us to lack understanding on the physical nature of the relationship between God the Father And God the Son. Thus the constant need for prophetic guidance from above continues to exist for the human family otherwise the world remains in a darkened apostate state.
            JST John:1-1 “In the beginning was the gospel preached through the Son. And the gospel was the word, and the word was with the Son, and the Son was with God, and the Son was of God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made which was made.”
            Note also that in third verse it states “without him was not anything made which was made.” He could have ended his sentence with “without him was not anything made.” and there would be no doubt that God made absolutely everything, end of story. However he added “which was made.” implying that there were some things which were already in existence.

              Well JST is not in my Bible.  Mormonism has changed the meaning of the Bible to fit its doctrines.  Unfortunately, much of Christiandom believes God is three entitites.  I'm pretty sure your JST uses the word 'with' as in 'beside', which the Holy Bible doesn't.  See, both of my statements ~ that Jesus is the Father, and the explanation of John 1:1-2 align.  Your doctrine goes against the proof, written down in black and white, the words of Isaiah and of Jesus, that Jesus is the Father.  Which is true?  I'm staying with the consistency of the Holy Bible.

                Mankind has changed the meaning of the Bible to suit their desires, thus the world continues to remain in an apostate condition. Biblical doctrine is much more accurate and provides an unshakable understanding of the truth when it is interpreted by prophets and apostles who have been ordained of God to restore the truth to the world. There continues to be nothing in the Bible which states that Jesus is the Father, however it does say he was with the Father, otherwise there would be no need for a distinction between the two, he would simply be God, and no extra biblical trinity explanation would be necessary.

                  What do you mean there's nothing in the Bible that states Jesus is the Father?  YOU ARE BLIND!  I've already posted the scriptures earlier, and I have hubs, which I won't promote here ~ but, of course, if it's not from Joseph Smith (whose name isn't in the Bible anywhere), you won't listen.  So be it. In Mormonism, Joseph Smith is 'a god' now, is he not?  Yet, he didn't die for your sin, nor raise himself from the dead! You don't think God would have told everyone of a prophet to come that would change the foundation of the Prophets and Apostles?  Wake UP!

                  The Bible Prophets and Apostles wrote all we will ever need, long before JS came along.  Whose names are written on the 12 gates of the New Jerusalem? (Rev 21:12)  Whose names are written on the 12 foundation stones? (Rev 21:14)  I can tell you that God didn't know Joseph Smith, for his name was not found written in the Lamb's Book of Life.  Don't worry, you'll see your 'prophet' again.

                  Consider the rich man in Hades.  He was NAMELESS!  However, Lazarus, Abraham, Moses and the Prophets are all mentioned in that account of the afterlife because the LORD knows their names!

                    Blindness is a judgment to be made by God and not you, I know what I speak is true by the power of the Holy Spirit. Angels speak by the power of the holy spirit, therefore they speak the words of Christ. It is an undeniable, and distinct feeling we receive when The Spirit of divine truth manifests its self to the individual.

                    Again concerning the post mortal state of the Prophet Joseph, as it is with all of the prophets of God who have endured in faith and rightousness I believe they will all be consigned to a state of eternal happiness when they are reunited with their bodies to live in celestial glory forever with their creator, To be Heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, to be changed to the same image from glory to glory, for when we see him we will be like him, thus we will be like God.

                    God knows all of his children, he knew us all before he formed us in the womb and yes he knew Joseph as well. I didn't see your name written in the book of life however I will not make any assumptions one way or another untill the day comes when the lord has judged us all.

                    I find it simply amazing when I see those who believe in the Bible but refuse to fathom the possibility of apostolic authority to be the guide post of God's people in the last days. It's much like seeing a traditional Jew who is immersed in old testament theology and yet refuses to acknowledge the fufillment of those promises in Jesus Christ. I continue to see many biblical prophecies fufilled by my church alone, the restoration of the Priesthood, the building of Temples, the gathering of the church, and the gospel being spread to all nations kindreds and tongues. None of which can be accomplished without the priesthood of God, and no man can take this honor upon himself unless he is called of God as was Aaron.

                    "BLIND" is infact the exact opposite of my spiritual awareness, I believe in Christ as I believe the sun will rise, not because I see it, but by it I CAN SEE!!!!!

                      Gal 1:8 "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!"  What do you think of Edgar Casey, who says the 24 elders in heaven are the 24 brain stems in our bodies?  Now, it's very interesting, if you do research on this man who made more prophecies than Nostradamus while in a hypnotic state...in that he, too had an angelic vision in the woods as a teen-ager ~ just like Joseph Smith.  You do believe in fallen angels, right?  And that Satan disguises himself as an angel of light?  Are these truths in your BOM?

                      You try to claim that signs and wonders are happening within the Mormon church ~ you KNOW Jesus said false prophets will show many signs and wonders that will deceive (Mat 24:24).  Did not Pharaoh's magicians do the same signs that Moses did? (Exodus 7).

                      Of course my name's not in the Bible, nor is yours.  You don't claim to be a prophet of God who would give 'reformed' revelation to start a new doctrine, write another 'bible', etc. do you?  That was my point. If Joseph Smith would be given 'the way' in the 'latter days', his name should have been in the Bible.

                      We have Revelation, which tells us what is to come, so why not tell the world about JS?  He's not even one of the two final witnesses of God, for they will be killed at the same time by the Antichrist and their bodies left out without burial, then be resurrected for all the world to see.  The only other 'prophets' mentioned to come in the Bible are false ones.

              God wants us to 'wake up' (Rev 3:2 "'Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God.") ~ this is a complicated subject because religions have made it so.  Consider panning for gold.  It's hard work, but it is worth it.  Study; it's a matter of life and death.  I've shared my study results to give a 'clue', if nothing else.  Take it and run with it, or run away from it; it's up to you.

        Geez, JD. You certainly are opinionated. Maybe even a little stupid. The Father and the Son  are one in that they are more or less the same person. They are two separate entities though. The bible says not to worship other Gods/Idols. It does not say that other gods don't exist. Jesus is A God. not THE God.

          Except that Yehovah (the LORD God) said, "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me"; it doesn't mean we worship Jesus as another god.  Get it?  If Jesus is not God, we shouldn't worship Him at all...as some cults believe ~ that's why they're called 'cults'.

              Thank you, ggordie :-)  I have replied and am praying for you, to Yehovah, our Savior and High Priest.  Our Father called me to come home, and I believe He's calling you, too :-)  from one foster kid to a homeless one...come home.

      The universe 'made' the Earth. The universe made the absolute beginning of all life; the first of all life in the universe. The 'oneness' we call God.

      The question makes no sense.

      "What created the earth" would have been a better question.

      The only available answer to your question is implied in the question itself.

      "The sky fairy" is the answer you seek, and that is patent nonsense! smile

      Funny, Earnest. I enjoy talking to you, also! I'm glad we can disagree on things and remain friends. I have a lot of respect for any man who is so devoted to his family and grandchildren. I never want to bother people with my personal views on religion. I just don't see how that would help spread Christianity - it seems to me that it would have the opposite effect! I totally support freedom of religion, along with the freedom to not follow any belief system. I think it's all very personal, and each human has to choose his own course. One of the most altruistic people I have ever known was an atheist!

          Judeo Christian God? Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world so that we all may be resurrected and gain eternal salvation? That one? Yes
          I do believe in the same God as you, I just don't believe that he is as merciless as you do.

                yes I do, Just a seperate entity from God the Father. All in all it's basic Christianity. Lets not hide behind the guise of monotheism by using made up terms like trinity.

                  What does monothesim mean?  ONE.  Polytheism is what you believe...more than one God.  You have God and then Jesus as a lesser god.  It is you that doesn't believe in ONE GOD.  I do not support the "trinity" doctrine, if people separate the Father, Son and Holy Spirit like Mormonism does.  Messianic Jews do not believe in a "trinity" (polytheism) either.  I have a hub you can read called "Let Me Tell You WHO GOD IS!"  If you even want to know the LORD who created the heavens and all that is in them and the earth and all that is in it...even you...from within your mother's womb, as He designed.  No man was 'begotten' (born) before he was formed in his mother's womb.  I had my daughter's name in my heart four years before she was conceived.  It doesn't mean she already existed.

                    The fact that your personal beliefs may clash with his personal beliefs in that regard, they are still just beliefs, and you cannot claim to actually know who god is just because you personally don't support a particular doctrine.

                    Again you are mistaken, I do believe in ONE GOD, just not the same way that you assume that their relationship is physically. And I never said that man was begotten before he was born in the mothers womb. I simply believe that the spirit is immortal, and it is only common sense to believe that if something can live forever in eternity then it is only logical to believe that it had no beginning.
                    You had your child's name in your heart before she was born, but you did not know her. However God knew her before she was born. She was a spirit that lived with God, decided to follow Gods plan to gain a body, go through the trials of mortality, learn and grow through experience, and later die to be ressurected, to have her spirit joined together with the flesh and become a perfected, immortal being. Mortality in of itsself is corrupt. Immortality however, is uncorrupted, flawless, and glorious.

      The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

        People's beliefs are not blasphemy just because they are not your own. We can not point our fingers and say this is right and this is wrong. I do not judge people. Nobody should. Your God, my God, gave us freewill and the right to choose what we believe and what makes us happy. If believing different from you, makes me happy, that's all that matters.
