Further evidence of the importance of Divine Simplicity
“I know that God is a being with body, parts and passions. . . . Man was born of woman; Christ, the Savior, was born of woman; and God, the Father was born of woman”
– Joseph F. Smith, (Church News, 19 Sept.1936, p.2)
There is but one only living and true God, who is infinite in being and perfection, a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts, or passions; immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, most wise, most holy, most free, most absolute, working all things according to the counsel of His own immutable and most righteous will, for His own glory; most loving, gracious, merciful, long-suffering, abundant in goodness and truth, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin, the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him; and withal, most just, and terrible in His judgments; hating all sin, and who will by no means clear the guilty.
– Westminster Confession of Faith
“I have learned for myself that Presbyterianism is not true.”
– Joseph Smith, History, 1:20
No wonder, is it, when you insist that God is not only more than one person, but more than one being; when you insist that God is material, and “became” God? No, not surprising at all.
