We belive the BIBLE to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. We also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

We all that God had revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that he will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

We believe in the literal gathering of Irael and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion, the New Jerusalem, will be build upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and that the earth will be renewes and receive its paradisiacal glory.

We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring and sustaining the law.

We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, and in doing good to all men; indeed we may say that we follow thw admonition of Paul. We believe all things, we hop all things, we have endured many things and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

The Mormon's Jesus is:

1. Satan's brother
2. Son of an exalted man
3. Not begotten of the Holy Ghost
4. Attained His Godhood
5. Cannot cleanse all sins by His blood

The Jesus of the Bible is:

1. Not Satan's brother, but his Creator
2. The Son of God (God is not a man)
3. Begotten of the Holy Ghost
4. God in the flesh
5. Able to cleanse all sin through His blood.

Nice of you to dishonestly take it out of quote...

"Their belief reminds me that brother Joseph B.

The Devil was cursed and sent down from heaven. He has no body of his own; therefore he is constantly endeavouring to obtain possession of the tabernacles belonging to others."

According to the one God with a strong personality disorder, God created all spirits. If you disagree that God created all spirits please give your evidence of what other God created Satan as he is a spirit.
In the meantime, God created all spirits. Including Satan whom he imprisoned to this earth before populating it with mortal human bodies housing spirits also created by God.
God as Father called all us spirits he made his children, his sons and daughters. Satan was a created spirit as we are a created spirit. Therefore God the Father is a Father to Satan as well as a Father to us because he stated he created ALL SPIRITS. He never stated he created SOME SPIRITS as you seem to believe.
And God as Jesus called all spirits his brothers and sisters. God as Jesus NEVER called us sons and daughters. Therefore God as Jesus is our brother and our God as Jesus is Satan's God and brother.
And when you sum it all up according to the one God with personality disorders, He is the God, the Father and the Brother to all the spirits he created. Since Satan was one of those created spirits, God is also God, Father and Brother to Satan as well as us. Understand?
If you choose to believe God/Jesus isn't the God/Father/brother to Satan, then you have to explain who created Satan and who his God is since you claim he wasn't created by God the Father.

The Bible doesn't teach the doctrine that you have explained. This is purely LDS doctrine and its made up. There is no way that Satan and Messiah are brothers.

Messiah isn't a created being. He is God in the flesh. Satan on the other hand is a created being. LDS doctrine is pure fantasy.

Actually concerning spirit children it does and the Bible affirms it.
God is the creator of ALL spirits no matter what they look like. Genesis attests to that. But humans are the only creation that God called sons and daughter and called himself our Father. So creation does equal relation because God declared it so many times in the old and new testaments always referring to humans as his sons and daughters.
Satan and his one third cast to this earth are spirits as we. But they have been banned from coming to this earth as we the other two thirds are doing so. And that doesn't take away from the fact that they are also sons and daughters of God.

Actually it does. But to understand this you have to have an open mind to consider what's in the Bible. If you have a decidedly closed and shut mind like dana, who rejects all of Genesis as a lie which discredits all the rest of the Bible for him, then you won't have an open mind for possibilities like dana.

It also says that Jesus is our bridegroom, and that we are God's children by adoption. Metaphors aren't relations and you don't have to adopt your own child. All your BS, make it up religion, isn't going to change that fact.

Really? Let's test that statement and see how much you really like truth.
From the Bible explain God's origin.
From the Bible explain how if God had the power to do all things on his own, why did he create two extra personalities.
From the Bible, if God is only good and truth, from what part of his goodness did he create a being to be so evil to influence humans on earth to make such bad/evil choices.
From the Bible, where did God say the Bible would contain all his words and nothing more was needed.

You mean like you when you called the book of Genesis, the book even Jesus referenced a lie and a myth? Is that your comparison?
