    The God of mormons?

    I think you're confused. The Father is the God of Mormons. As is the Son and the Holy Ghost.

    Do you know the difference between a Prophet and a God? Let me help since obviously you are uniformed. A prophet is a mortal man that God has chosen to speak to and through. He can speak directly to God and God can speak directly to him. A prophet brings new information from God to the people. Moses was a Prophet, but according to you he must have been God.

    Not according to the Mormon religion. Moroni is a God-angel and Joseph Smith is the prophet of Mormonism. says nothing about the Father and the Son.

    [​IMG]

    Joseph Smith, Jr. (December 23, 1805 – June 27, 1844) was an American religious leader and the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, the predominant branch of which is Mormonism. At age twenty-four, Smith published the Book of Mormon, and in the next fourteen years he attracted thousands of followers, established cities and temples, and created a lasting religious culture.

    The Smiths believed in visions and prophecies, and participated in folk religious practices typical of the era. According to Smith, beginning in the early 1820s he had visions, in one of which an angel directed him to a buried book of golden plates inscribed with a Judeo-Christian history of ancient American civilizations. In 1830, he published what he said was an English translation of these plates as the Book of Mormon....

    People actually believe in this?

    A prophet is someone with the Spirit of Prophecy. Do you know what the Spirit of Prophecy is?

    Honestly I don't think 4horsemen knows much of anything. Seems he wants to debate on topics he knows absolutely nothing about.

    I'm thinking he's a 14 year old kid skipping school.

    Yes he was, God chose Joseph Smith as his Prophet to restore the proper church to earth and once again provide prophets to pass his word on.
