MORMONISM is the name given to the belief system of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Saints - members of the Church - were called 'Mormons' from the beginning of the Church because of their belief in the Book of Mormon as the Word of God alongside the Holy Bible.
Mormons are Christians who believe that Jesus Christ:
Is the literal Son of God the Father
He was born to the Virgin Mary
He revealed himself as the Messiah
He taught men a new way that transcended the Mosaic Law
He called a college of twelve Apostles as special witnesses of his Deity
He submitted to being sacrificed for the sins of the world
He was crucified at Golgotha
He redeemed us by the shedding of his blood
He was buried, but rose as a living glorified being after three days
He gave infallible proof of his literal physical resurrection
He ascended to heaven
He sits enthroned at the right hand of his Father in the heavens
He will return to earth to gather the faithful and judge the wicked
Many of the beliefs about Jesus Christ are also found in the writings of the Church Fathers, even when they have not been continued to be believed or passed down to the many Christian denominations found on the earth today.
The Saviour subordinates his will and himself to God the Father. All the early Church Fathers likewise subordinate the Son to the Father.
"For I came down from heaven not to do my own will,
but the will of him that sent me." [John 6:38]
"He prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me!
Nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt. ...
And he went away again the second time, and prayed, saying,
O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me,
except I drink it, thy will be done." [Matthew 26:39, 42]
"Hey, there, Mr Mormon. Who do you say that I, the Son of Man, am?"
"Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God!"
"Blessed art thou, Mr Mormon, for flesh and blood have not told you this:
it has been revealed to you by my Father which is in Heaven!"
Jesus came to do the will of the Father:
"For I came down from heaven not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me." ... "He prayed saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup, pass from me! Nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wiil. ... He went away agains the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass from me except I drink it, thy will be done." --Mattthew 26:39,42,
The Saviour Jesus Christ subordinates his will and himsel;f to the Fathers, and all the early Church Fathers likewise subordinate the Son to the Father.
According to Origen,
"it is to expiate this [sin of Adam] that Jesus Christ came to the world. His soul, created from the beginning with the other spirits, alone remained absolutely faithful to God. ... " [Tixeront, Histoire des Dogmes, vol. 1, p. 313.
