How are We Related to Jesus?
prisonchaplain posted a topic in LDS Gospel DiscussionI'm reading a book by Gary C. Lawrence, a long-time LDS Church member, who offers a summary of LDS teachings. While his book is not an official publication of the church, his writings track well with what I've encountered here. Concerning Jesus he says: "We believe Jesus Christ is the literal son of God ..." Concerning the Father and us he says: "We believe God is the Father of our spirits and that we lived with Him in heaven before being born in our earthly bodies." So, is there a sense that Jesus is our brother, and yet different. He is "literal" and we are spiritual. My question: How do LDS distinguish our relationship to the Father with that of Jesus, the only begotten?
