Dear Gramps,

Is it true that Brigham Young said that the Mormon Christ and the Biblical Christ are separate beings. Did Brigham Young Not believe that Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit?


Dear Jerry,

Brigham Young and all of the leaders of the Mormon Church have emphatically testified of Jesus Christ.  That He is the same yesterday, today and for eternity.  That he was born of Mary, and is the only begotten of the God the Father.  At no time has Brigham Young or any other leader of the Church indicated otherwise.

Because of the contentions among the various churches, Joseph Smith was confused as to which church he should join.  After reading the following passage of scripture from the Bible, James 1:5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him”, he determined to ask God which of all the churches was true.  He went into a grove of trees near his home and prayed.  Upon offering up the desires of his heart to God he  states:  ” I saw a pillar of clight exactly over my head, above the brightness of the dsun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me.  17 It no sooner appeared than I found myself adelivered from the enemy which held me bound. When the light rested upon me I bsaw two cPersonages, whose brightness and dglory defy all description, estanding above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My fBeloved gSon. Hear Him!

This is the testimony of Joseph Smith, Brigham Young and all the leaders of the Mormon Church.  That Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that He lives.  It is our message to the World.  I would invite you to contact the Mormon missionaries and they can help you further understand this great message.
