These are excellent points you bring up here.<quoted text>
Response to your quoted text above. It sounds like you are saying that God doesn't have a body, and God doesn't have a father.
Lets talk about what the Bible DOES say about Jesus Christ and God the Father.
Christ said "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likelwise." (John 5:19)

You are welcome to your LDS view on them.
But here is the kicker.
For over 2000 years all Christians have believed that Jesus did as he saw the father do with his spiritual eyes. Even the LDS teach Jesus did not have bodily form in heaven he got his body when he came to earth.
Thus even by LDS teaching Jesus never had seen God the father with eyes of flesh before his incarnation and even then not until he ascended.
So even by your own teachings the ONLY way Jesus could do what the Father was doing was by spiritual means. Thus your conclusion that God the Father was flesh is illogical and erroneous
anyway I took a rabbit trail there.
Christians have always believe for 2000 years Jesus is speaking Spiritually here that he could only do as the Father was doing as he even though fully God and all powerful choose not act in his Godly nature but to put that off as Paul teaches in The Supremacy of Christ
The fact that Christians have always believed that as did Paul see below and now you don't agree means you are not christian. Christianity was and is defined by 2000 years of history and Biblical evidence that is completely contradictory to your LDS faith. Your faith your beliefs are not that of Christians in 70 AD 1000 AD or 2000 AD to say you can believe two different things and call both beliefs the same by the same Name is absurd.
Col 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
Col 1:16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
Col 1:17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.
Col 1:19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him,
Col 1:20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
Col 1:21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.
Col 1:22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—
Col 1:23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
Col 2:9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form,
Col 2:10 and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority
