He had the lawful right to overshadow the V ir­ gin Mary in the capacity o f a hus­ band, and beget a Son, although she was espoused .to another; fo r the law which He gave to govern men and women was not intended to govern Himself, or to prescribe rules for His own conduct. It was also lawful in Him, after having thus dealt with Mary, to give her to Joseph her espoused husband. Whether God the Father gave Mary to Joseph for time only, or fo r time and eternity, we are not informed. Inasmuch as God was the first husband to her, it may be that He only gave her to be the wife o f Joseph while in this mor­ tal state, and that He intended after the resurrection to again take her as one o f his own wives . . .” (The Seer, pg. 158). BIBLE: “ . . . I am God, and not man . . .” (Hosea 11:9 ). Mormon theology: “ Christ was be­ gotten o f God. He wa3 not born without the aid o f man, and that man was God!” ( Doctrines of Salva­ tion, Vol. 1, p. 18).

BIBLE : “ And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary; for thou hast found favour with God. And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son and shalt call his name JESUS. . . . Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing that I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy thing which shall be born o f thee shall be called the Son o f God” (Luke 1 :30-35).

Because we, believe the Biblical account o f the birth o f our Lord, our hearts are greatly burdened for the salvation o f the misguided Mor­ mon people and we desire to reach them with the Truth. In order to reveal to our readers the great contrast between Mormon teaching and the Bible, we quote the following passages: BIBLE: “ Now the birth o f Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child o f the Holy Ghost.
