The Origins of Earth according to Mormonism

“Mormonism teaches that trillions of planets scattered throughout the cosmos are ruled by countless gods, who once were human like us. They say that long ago on one of these planets, to an unidentified god and one of his goddess wives, a spirit child named Elohim was conceived. This spirit child was later born to human parents who gave him a physical body. Through obedience to Mormon teaching in death and resurrection, he proved himself worthy and was elevated to godhood, as his father before him. Mormons believe that Elohim is their heavenly father, and that he lives with his many goddess wives on a planet near a mysterious star called Kolob. Here the god of Mormonism and his wives, through endless celestial sex, produce billions of spirit children. To decide their destiny, the head of the Mormon gods called a great heavenly counsel meeting. Both of Elohim’s eldest sons were there: Lucifer, and his brother Jesus. A plan was presented to build planet earth, where the spirit children would be sent to take on mortal bodies and learn good from evil. Lucifer stood and made his bid for becoming saviour of this new world – wanting the glory for himself, he planned to force everyone to become gods. Opposing the idea, the Mormon Jesus suggested giving man his freedom of choice as on other planets. The vote that followed approved the proposal of the Mormon Jesus, who would become saviour of the planet earth. Enraged, Lucifer cunningly convinced one-third of the spirits destined for earth to fight with him in revolt. Thus Lucifer became the devil, and his followers the demons. Sent to this world they would forever be denied bodies of flesh and bone. Those who remain neutral in the battle were cursed to be born with black skin. This is the Mormon explanation for the Negro race. The spirits that fought most valiantly against Lucifer would be born into Mormon families on planet earth. These would be the lighter skinned people, or ‘white and delightsome’ as the Book of Mormon describes them. Early Mormon prophets taught that Elohim and one of his goddess wives came to earth as Adam and Eve to start the human race. Thousands of years later Elohim, in human form once again, journeyed to earth from the starbase Kolob, this time to have sex with the Virgin Mary in order to provide Jesus with a physical body. The Mormon apostle, Orson Pratt, taught that after Jesus Christ grew to manhood he took at least three wives: Mary, Martha and Mary Magdalene. Through these wives the Mormon Jesus, from whom Joseph Smith claimed direct descent, supposedly fathered a number of children before he was crucified. According to the Book of Mormon, after his resurrection Jesus came to the Americas to preach to the Indians – who the Mormons believe are really Israelites. Thus the Jesus of Mormonism established his church in the Americas as he had in Palestine. By the year 421 AD the dark skinned Indian Israelites, known as Lamanites, had destroyed all of the white Nephites in a number of great battles. The Nephite records were supposedly written on golden plates and buried by Moroni, the last living Nephite, on the hill Cumorah. 1400 years later a young treasure-seeker named Joseph Smith, who was known for his tall tales, claimed to have uncovered these same gold plates near his home in upstate New York. He is now honoured by Mormons as a prophet because he claimed to have had visions from the spirit world in which he was commanded to organise the Mormon Church, because all Christian creeds were an abomination. It was Joseph Smith who originated most of these peculiar doctrines which millions today believe to be true. By maintaining a rigid code of financial and moral requirements, and through performing secret temple rituals for themselves and the dead, the Latter Day Saints hope to prove their worthiness, and thus become gods. The Mormons teach that everyone must stand at the final judgment before Joseph Smith, the Mormon Jesus and Elohim. Those Mormons who are sealed in the eternal marriage ceremony expect to become polygamous gods in a celestial kingdom, and rule over other planets, and spawn new families throughout eternity. The Mormons thank God for Joseph Smith, who claimed that he had done more for us than any other man, including Jesus Christ. The Mormons believe that He died as a martyr, shed His blood for us so that we too may become gods”.
