Jesus Christ is one with God the Father. In Christ “all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily” (Colossians 2:9).
Biblical Christians cannot accept any denomination, religion, doctrine or leader who will say otherwise.
–The ancient gnostics refused to believe that Jesus could be a flesh and blood man, and refused to accept that all the fullness of the Creator of the universe lived within him.
–The Jews refused to accept that Jesus Christ was one with God the Father, and rejected him as Messiah.
–Islam rejects Jesus claim to be one with God the Father. It is an offence to call Jesus the Son of God. They teach that he is a prophet, lower than Muhammed. The Koran teaches that Jesus did not die on the cross. Nevertheless, Muslims believe one thing that is true. Jesus will return to earth. What they do not recognize is that without Jesus death and resurrection no one can enter heaven (John 14:6, Acts 4:12).
–Mormons do not accept the truth that Jesus is one with God the Father. Indeed, this false religion is so metaphysically confused and theologically wrong that there is little to find agreement on, even though they would have you believe that they are worshipping the same God and believing in the same Jesus.
For the Mormon the incarnation is no big deal because they are taught human beings are made of the “same stuff” as God, whom they call Elohim. Of course Jesus is “fully God and fully man” because every man can become a God. “Divinity is the full maturity of humanity.” (http://lehislibrary.wordpress.com/2009/09/18/lds-christology-trinitarian-christology-a-comparison/)
For the Mormon, the God of our world is one of many gods throughout the universe. He is a physical being. He was once a man. Jesus is the physical offspring of this god, the result of Elohim having intercourse with Mary. Jesus is but one savior among many in the universe, since each world likely requires a savior.
The truth is Mormonism is a lie inspired and led by the god of this world, whose name is not Elohim. The god of this world is the father of lies. His name is Satan. He is blinding the eyes of many today. He is successfully misleading many Christians.
“You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44, ESV).
“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).
“For false christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect” (Matthew 24:24, ESV).
This is why it is imperative that we hold to the truth that Jesus Christ is absolutely unique. He is the One and Only Son of the One and Only God.
“He is the image of the invisible God. The firstborn of all creation. In him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions, rulers or authorities– all things were made through him and for him. And he is before all things and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent…. In him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily” (Colossians 1:15-19 & 2:9).
