God, the Father, was Born of Woman

As recently as 1936, this sentiment has been expressed in some official capacity by the Church. I just wanted to share this, to show how blessed we actually are to have such an improvement as we do over the various Christian denominations in the world. There are many things in the Church we don't all agree on, (perhaps everything) yet this is better than any other religion can say while allowing their members to think for themselves.


At Stake Conference of Maricopa Stake

President Smith closed the conference with his usual brilliant, thoughtful remarks. He bore a strong testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel and said in part: "I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God; I know that God is a being with body, parts and passions and that His Son is in His own likeness, and that man is created in the image of God. The Son, Jesus Christ, grew and developed into manhood the same as you or I, as likewise did God, His Father, grow and develop to the Supreme Being that He now is. Man was born of woman; Christ, the Savior, was born of woman; and God, the Father, was born of woman. Adam, our earthly parent was also born of woman into this world, the same as Jesus and you and I."
