Conceptualizing God

Post by Thoughtful » Sat Oct 17, 2020 7:10 pm

The more I think about Mormon God, the more douchey he seems. Rules are rules because he says so, so sex with children is fine, if he says so. Slavery also fine if it suits his purposes.

Anyway. Picture a God(dess) who is the same yesterday, that, forever.

What would they be? What would their prophets teach? How powerful would they be? Could they exist in this reality or if not what would the worlds they create be like?

Then, did you create God in your image, or something else?

Ready, GO!

Our Parents which art in heaven . . .


. . . in the name of Truth and Love, amen.

I wonder who would find this offensive, especially if offered at the United States Congress, or a BYU football game??😇

If you want to see Mormon god, it’s what Joseph Smith saw when he looked in the mirror.
