God in the Mormon church does not have the same meaning as taught in the Bible. The holy Scriptures clearly state that "God is Spirit" (John 4:24). The Scriptures also teach of a Trinity (although this word is not found in Scripture the concept is) in such passages as Matthew 28:19 and 3:16-17. Only the Son, Jesus the Anointed, "did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant" (Philippians 2:6-7). The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit transcend time and space, thus the Psalmist writes:

Psalm 90:2 KJV

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

Psalm 93:2 KJV

Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.

Expertise

I can answer questions related to LDS beliefs and history as well as doctrinal questions pertaining to the standard works (Bible, Book of Mormon, etc.) I believe strongly in personal revelation and hope that all answers I provide will be carefully considered, and prayed about before being accepted.

Experience

I've been a member of the LDS Church all of my life, have served a mission for the Church, have been sealed to my wife in the Washington, DC temple, and enjoy reading books on LDS history and the teachings of the prophets.

Organizations
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Education/Credentials
A love for people and a strong desire to seek after the word of God. I try hard to follow the command "Seek not to declare my word, but first seek to obtain my word, and then shall your tongue be loosed; then, if you desire, you shall have my Spirit and my word, yea, the power of God unto the convincing of men."
