However, in the Book of Mormon, it preaches Christian Doctrine that God is God and has always been God.
The Book of Mormon teaches God does dwell in the Hearts of Men.
Pray to Jesus
“…some misguided members of the Church may ‘begin to pray directly to Christ because of some special friendship they feel has been developed’ with him. This is wrong, said Elder McConkie. We should pray directly to the Father...” —The Ensign, June 1998, p. 59
Look at the Christian sounding Idea in the Book of Mormon.
The Book of Mormon is Very clear in the fact when it states that there is only One God as stated above in Alma 11:27-39, 44; 2 Nephi 31:21; Mormon 7:7; 3 Nephi 11:27. Look also at the Testimony of the three witnesses in the beginning introduction of the Book of Mormon.
"And the honor be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, which is one God. Amen." The three witnesses knew there was ONE GOD. The Book of Mormon stated in many places there is ONE GOD, then why are Mormons now teaching the exaltation of Man and becoming Gods themselves?
The Book of Mormon presents the Christian View
The LDS church today does NOT teach the Book of Mormon theology. It teaches against it. The Book of Mormon reflects 19th century Christian theology, which given the upbringing and religious background of Joseph Smith, would explain why the Book of Mormon reads the way it does.
If you're taking the time to read and are offended I would urge you to look at the reason why you're offended. I'm not looking to offend anyone but to show you truth. Joseph Smith said: “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.” Why then are many of the teachings in the book being ignored by the Leaders of the church, past and present? Is it, or is it not the "most correct of any book on the earth" and is it not the "keystone" of your religion? Why then are teachings in it being contradicted by Leaders?
