How was Saint Luke like Jesus Christ?
Before the Day of Pentecost, Luke was like Jesus as the other disciples were like him. Only they believed. But after Pentecost, when the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, was given to the believers, Luke began to be turned into the image of Jesus Christ according to the Scripture in Romans 8. 29. -
"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren."

We believe we are the true church founded by Christ while on earth. Currently we have a living prophet, apostles, counsel of the seventies, bishops, teachers, elders etc. We b…elieve that membership is needed for salvation because the ordinances of Christs Gospel are essential to enter into the Celestial Kingdom where Heavenly Father and the Savior are, and found only in the Church with proper authority. Beliefs in each category: The Holy Trinity: Three separate and distinct personages. God the Eternal Father, His son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. These constitute the Godhead and are one in purpose. God: God the Eternal Father has a body of flesh and bones, tangible as mans. He is an exalted personage, with an immortal body. The Holy Bible: We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. Atonement: Through the atonement, Christ assured redemption, or resurrection for all. Provides for salvation and exaltation according to our personal worthiness. Baptism: By immersion for the remission of sins and entrance into the Church. Essential to salvation. Must be performed by one holding proper priesthood authority. Required at the age of 8 year and older. No infant baptism necessary. Virgin Birth and Immaculate Conception: We believe God has a physical body as does man and the Father came himself to Mary to conceive the Savior. We do not recognize the "Immaculate Conception". Ecclesiastical Authority: After the death of the apostles, there was a great apostasy from the church and the Holy Priesthood, which is the authority to administer the ordinances of the gospel, ceased and was restored through Joseph Smith by three heavenly messangers. Joseph writes the following account of the visit from these messangers, "The messenger who visited us on this occasion and conferred this Priesthood upon us, said that his name was John, the same that is called John the Baptist in the New Testament, and that he acted under the direction of Peter, James and John, who held the keys of the Priesthood of Melchizedek, which Priesthood, he said, would in due time be conferred on us" (JS-H 1:68-72; emphasis in JS-H 1:70, 72 added). The Holy Priesthood: In the Old Testament, there was only one High Priest after the order of Melchizedek at a given time, but today we have many who hold these Holy Offices. Aaronic Priesthood Offices and DutiesThe offices in the Aaronic Priesthood are deacon, teacher, priest, and bishop. Each priesthood office has rights and responsibilities of service, including authority to administer priesthood ordinances. Melchizedek Priesthood Offices and Duties Definition and Purposes of the Melchizedek Priesthood The priesthood is the power and authority of God. It is conferred upon worthy male members of the Church. Those who hold priesthood keys direct the administration of the ordinances of the gospel, the preaching of the gospel, and the government of the kingdom of God on the earth. The Melchizedek Priesthood holds "the keys of all the spiritual blessings of the church" (D&C 107:18). The offices in the Melchizedek Priesthood are elder, high priest, patriarch, Seventy, and Apostle. Each priesthood office has rights and responsibilities of service, including authority to administer priesthood ordinances. This chapter contains information for leaders of elders and high priests. For information about ordination to the offices of elder and high priest.
Jesus is the Son of God, the Savior of all mankind who sacrificed His own life so that all mankind could have eternal life. Mormons believe that Jesus is a member of the Godhe…ad, along with God the Father and the Holy Ghost. We offer all our prayers in His name.
In the spring of 1820, a 14-year-old boy named Joseph Smith went into a grove of trees near his home in Palmyra, New York, & prayed to learn which church he should join. In an…swer to his prayer, God the Father & His Son, Jesus Christ, appeared to him, just as heavenly beings had appeared to prophets like Moses & Paul in biblical times. Joseph learned that the Church originally organized by Jesus Christ was no longer on the earth. Joseph Smith was chosen by God to restore the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth. During the next 10 years, Joseph was visited by other heavenly messengers, translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God, & received divine authority to organize the Church. The Church was organized in Fayette, New York, on 6 April 1830, under the leadership of Joseph Smith. It has grown to an organization with members and congregations throughout the world.
A cult is defined as "a particular system of religious worship" or "a group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person, ideal, etc." (dictionary.com) Many …people think of a cult as a group of people that might be unordinary or that performs strange rituals. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is not considered a cult any more than the Catholic or Protestant churches. It's members are bound together because they all worship Jesus Christ, and they all follow the counsel of central Church leaders (a Prophet -similar to the Catholic Pope- and 12 Apostles). Church members participate in their cities and communities and do not sequester themselves on 'compounds' out in the wilderness, as many 'cults' do. They do perform some 'rituals', such as the Sacrament (Communion or Lord's Supper) and Baptism, as well as prayer and temple worship. The temple worship service (separate from Sunday Services) is sacred and not discussed outside of temple walls, but is entirely focused on Jesus Christ. The Church is open and welcoming to all who would like to participate in worship services or just learn more about their beliefs and doctrines. If you want more information on the beliefs of the Church, you can go to one of your local Latter Day Saint churches on Sundays. There will be someone there who can refer you to the missionaries of the church. Or you may visit one of the Church's official websites, which are included below.
No-one, since He was the Son of God through the virgin Mary. No other human can claim to have been born in this manner.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has many different teachings. The most basic list of these would be The Articles of Faith which follow: We believe in God, the …Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression. We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost. We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof. We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth. We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth. We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory. We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may. We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law. We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul-We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. Joseph Smith So, you see that Latter-Day Saints are Christians who believe in the Bible and many other truths found in different faiths. However, the most prominent differences are that the Church has modern-day Prophets and the Priesthood. There is one Prophet (currently President Thomas S. Monson) who holds all the keys and authorities of the Priesthood. He has two counselors. There are also the Twelve Apostles and the Seventies. The First Presidency (President Monson and his counselors) and the Quorum of the Twelve are all esteemed as prophets, seers, and revelators, but only the President of the Church has all of the Priesthood keys. The Priesthood is the power of God, given to worthy males (those who believe in Christ and try their best to do what is right) in order to bless the lives of all. With the Priesthood, members and nonmembers can be healed, given comfort, and blessed with strength. Holders of the Priesthood are also the only ones who can baptize and give people the gift of the Holy Ghost, along with other ordinances such as further Priesthood ordinations and the ordinances performed in the temple. Worthy members of the church may go to the temples of the Lord to make covenants with the Lord and be sealed to their families. Also, they do all of these saving ordinances by proxy for the dead. They do not dig up dead bodies and baptize them, but rather those members that go to the temple do what those the dead cannot do for themselves in their stead: be baptized, receive the Holy Ghost, etc. Any more questions? Check out the main church website (http://lds.org/?lang=eng) or the church's blogs (http://mormon.org/?gclid=COKVxYq726gCFUNd5Qodjmmx2A). You should be able to find lots of people willing to give you info. Also, you can look up the closest church building in your area and attend church on Sunday. If you want to do this, don't be scared- they are very friendly and love visitors. You'll probably get lots of hand-shakes and invitations to come again. If you don't feel comfortable about attending, you may look up the LDS missionaries in your area. They're usually young men in suits and wearing tags which identify them as missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
they were both missionarys and hero to their followers. //Christ was neither a hero nor a missionary, He was God made flesh. //
The word 'Christ' (from the Greek: 'christos'/Hebrew: 'messiah') is a title and means 'anointed one' (one set aside for a particular purpose), so one could say: 'the anointed …one, Jesus' or 'Jesus the anointed one'...either is correct. For example: Romans 1:8 - First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. Romans 8:1 - There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. [NKJV] Another view: Truly it is neither, Christ just means Messiah, but Jesus has no meaning, sorry, it is a made uo name from the Greek Iesous, there was no J's in Greek, Hebrew or even our English until the late 1600's. His real name is Yeshua and in English it would be Salvation. Edward would not be called Bill if he went to another country, it still would be Edward, so why did man change his name, Paul said they;d preach another Yeshua, a Blonde hair, blue eyed man name s Jesus who changed' God's Law, but in fact it was His Law, because He is the God from the old testament. He is Jewish, dark hair, darker skin that a white man, a little lighter than a black man, with brown eyes. And 1Peter 2:21 says He left us an example to follow in His steps, and that means you'll worship and do the things He did, so example means copy-imitate, so you'll look Jewish wither you want to or not.
Yes, both Jesus and David were born in Bethlehem.
St. Patrick was like jesus because he was a kind soul who went through many hardships he is also a catholic and he also is like jesus because he wants to tell everyone abo…ut jesus and the christian way of living
No, in fact, the "LDS" church is a relatively conservative organization and was very anti-communist when communism was an issue. Some confuse a religious practice of early …mormonism with "communism". Early mormonism had a group that was assigned to practice what they called the "united order". That group shared all resources, had communal crops, were given according to their needs and generally proved that communism would never work. The Mormon practice of the unted order differed from communism: communism was anti-religion and used extreme tactics to keep their people in line. Mormonism used their religious beliefs to get people to commit to their social experiment. **Actually, I think what the previous answer is referring to is early LDS members attempt at practicing the Law of Consecration. According to LDS doctrine, this is a higher law than tithing, in that all possessions and resources are shared in meaning to further church and church members benefit. Never heard of the above 'social experiment' but for a while all church members tried to practice it, but the law was retracted. Leaders said that God did not believe them ready. So yes, people failed in this religious and extremist-free version of communism. But it was never a small experiment.
Answer Although Luke knew Paul, who also met the apostles, who also knew Mary, we have no direct evidence that Luke met or knew Mary. However, it is not impossibl…e that he did know her and that she is the source of much of the extra material Luke has in his gospel about the early events in the life of Jesus. St Luke also painted many icons of the Virgin Mary, some of which are still in existence today, mainly at Mount Athos in Greece.
Seeing as I am one, I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is certainly real.
In Jesus Christ
Did you mean founder? That would be Joseph Smith. If you meant what candidate for President of the U.S. was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, th…at would be Mitt Romney. If you mean who was the most famous leader of the Church it would be Brigham Young.
