It takes some effort to differentiate what Mormons believe from what various other branches of the Christian faith believe. One difference is Mormons do not believe in the Trinity.
The Trinity, of course, is God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost all rolled into one. Mormons make the case this concept did not exist in original Christianity but was added many years later. In that way, Mormons can claim their’s, not the other branches, reflect the true faith.
Even during my decades as a practicing Christian, I could never understand the Trinity concept. When Jesus returns, will it be all three, or just Jesus? If the Trinity arrives on earth as the Holy Ghost and is an invisible ghost, how will we know it has returned?
Questions like these must have occurred to the founders of the Mormon faith. They might have thought if they could not understand something, they would have difficulty explaining it to their followers.
In terms of the religious implications, a Romney Presidency is fun to contemplate. It would be interesting for him to be asked by the press why Mormons do not believe in the Trinity.
If he had a nice logical answer, it seems like it millions of Trinity fans would be uneasy. Because the Trinity is such an odd concept, any discussion of it would take its toll on believers.
Is it possible the Trinity may come to seem as odd as Mormon underwear?
