Watch the video above and talk about it with a friend or mentor.

What we believe about God is probably the most important thing we can believe. Everything else in a world view starts with our concept of God. So let’s try to understand what Mormonism says about God so we can compare our own beliefs.

Key Points:

  • Mormons Believe God the Father Has Not Always Been God
  • Mormons Believe God the Father Is an Exalted Man
  • Mormons Believe God the Father Has a Physical Body of Flesh and Bone
  • Mormons Believe Human Beings Can Become Like God Is Now

Talk About It
  1. Watch the video together or invite someone to summarize the topic.
  2. When you think of God, what traits or attributes of God first come to mind?
  3. What do you think about the idea that God was once a human just like us?
  4. Why do you think this view of God is appealing to some people?
  5. When we say that God is a spirit, what are we actually saying about him?
  6. Read Jeremiah 23:24-25. How do these verses support the idea that God is a spirit?
  7. If God is a spirit, why does the Bible talk about God’s eyes, arm, face, and the like?
  8. In what ways do human beings reflect a likeness to God?
