Magyar Posted February 11, 2011 Share Posted February 11, 2011 The Apostle John tells us, quite clearly, in his first epistle, fourth chapter that the key to knowing that a messenger is from God is that he will agree/teach/declare that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.We LDS sometimes use this as a proof-text for the validity of the angel Moroni, and indeed, the Book of Mormon itself, both of which testify that Christ came in the flesh. It counters nicely the wresting of Paul's words to the Galatians about a hypothetical angel with another gospel that are used against us by people who don't think too deeply.But in the Gospels, is it not written that the demons possessing the Gergasenes explicitly declared that Christ was come in the flesh?And does not James testify that the devils believe and tremble? What is the resolution of this conundrum? Link to comment
