And I can see how this association can be made... But nowhere in the holy scriptures can this be found. In order to reject this idea, you either have to reject the idea that we are spirit children of God the Father, or that Christ is the firstborn child of God the Father in the spirit. But if both of those are true, then it's a no brainer deduction. Quote D&C 93:21 And now, verily I say unto you, I was in the beginning with the Father, and am the Firstborn; Numerous scriptures describe Christ as the Son of God. Thus, at the very least, we have two people, one of whom is Father and one is Son. https://www.lds.org/scriptures/tg/jesus-christ-divine-sonship?lang=eng https://www.lds.org/scriptures/tg/jesus-christ-firstborn?lang=eng And scripture teaches we are also children of God: https://www.lds.org/scriptures/tg/man-a-spirit-child-of-heavenly-father?lang=eng 15 minutes ago, mikbone said: Yet I can find numerous scriptures that state that Jesus is our father. By adoption, or figuratively because he created the earth or because he is one with the Father.
