I did stuff around the house this evening while Misty was at school.
We are created in God’s image. It says that in Genesis, and in Mosiah 7:27. So much of the world does not take that thought literally, because they do not believe that God is physical. I thank God for the appearance of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ to Joseph Smith, which proves that He is physical.
Also, when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, there were three people there: Heavenly Father said “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matt 3:17) Of course, there was Jesus being baptized. And, there was the Holy Ghost, which descended like a dove (Matt 3:16).
Why is the world confused and thinks that God is only a Spirit? I think that what might be happening is that the world only knows about the Holy Ghost, which is only Spirit; but they are not aware of the ‘whole picture’. Again, I thank God that the ‘whole picture’ has been revealed during my lifetime.
