God’s Offspring

Does the Bible teach the universal fatherhood of God? Does it teach the universal brotherhood of man? Are we not all God’s offspring (Acts 17:28)? In this 30-minute vintage video, Dr. R.C. Sproul answers these questions–questions that are fundamental to the Mormon worldview.

    Thanks for posting this Sharon. The Trinity has been the hardest thing for me to grasp as a new Christian. In Mormonism I was taught that god was literally my father and I was his literal spirit daughter who's on this earth to gain a body and to progress. This video really helped me to see the Father as the Bible teaches. The thing that is really scary to me is that we are not children of God until we are born again and accept Jesus as our Savior. Everyone around me that I love are still trapped in the Mormon lie and all I can think is that they aren't children of God because they don't even believe in the Biblical Jesus.

    Kate, take heart in the thought that just as you were delivered from following the false teachings
    of a false prophet, so your family and friends can one day be free also.

    The Fatherhood of God . This is another doctrine that clearly reveals the gap between the teachings
    of the prophets in the Old testament and the apostles in the New testament with Mormon prophets .
    Mormon leaders have made this clear by stating that " all men and women….are literally the sons and
    daughters of Deity." This offical statement further stated that man as, " ….the undeveloped offspring
    of celestial parentage is capable, by experience through ages and eons , of evolving into a God."
    By stating, "all men " , LDS include Jesus as He was the first spirit son sexually produced by God
    and Wife, with Lucifer being His literal brother in heaven. This whole scenario is an example of the
    private interpretation of the scriptures by Mormon leaders. The danger of this behavior is clear:
    2Tim.2:15, [ also compare Alma 13:20 ]. May our Mormon friends see the truth of the Fatherhood
    of God has the Bible declares it , and not be led astray by prophets in the latter-days—Matt 24:11,24

    I may be wrong, but I choose to believe your mormon friends and loved ones have the Holy Spirit in them. And that, deep down, they know something 'smells rotten' in mormonism. I choose to believe God loves them very much and will save them. I choose to believe in a loving and merciful God. Its like a child that has been abused. God will show them mercy. It wasn't their fault. Shawn McCraney's Mormon Stories videos might be helpful because he comes from a 40-year background in LDS with all of his family still in mormonism. I don't believe in a Universal Christianity, where its just 'all good' either.

    Oh boy Violet,
    Please don't take this wrong but you just set basic orthodox Christian doctrine back a couple of thousand years. A person can only have the Holy Spirit "in them" if they are born again by the Spirit of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
    Now a Mormon can be influenced and led to Jesus by the Holy Spirit but the Holy Spirit only indwells believers. Mormons can't be believers because they don't acknowledge the God of the Bible. They have a different Father, Son and Holy Ghost. In fact, in Mormonism there is a Holy Ghost and a Holy Spirit the latter being a force likened to electricity.
    I'm not meaning to be argumentative in anyway but what you choose to believe should have some sort of Scriptural foundation. While I like Shawn McCraney, author of "Born Again Mormon", I think you'll find that Shawn was indeed born again while a Mormon because he was led by the Spirit to a relationship with the Biblical Jesus not the Mormon Jesus. He didn't remain a Mormon because what he believed when he was born again couldn't fit into Mormonism.

    Are we still friends?
