PictureKTKKsquare2.jpgWas Jesus Married?

LDS host: Van Hale.

Summary: I discuss the views of 19th century LDS leaders who argued from three main positions that Jesus was certainly married. I quote from a number of their sermons and writings. While it seems widely believed among Mormons that Jesus was married, there have been clear statements that it is not considered official LDS doctrine. I presented reasons for my personal doubts that Jesus was married. It seems that among Mormons, my view is in the minority. There were a number of participants by phone and email, prompting some interesting dialogue from several perspectives. All argued against my view.

This is the 4 June 2006 episode of the Mormon Miscellaneous Worldwide Talk Show, now in its 27th year where all points of view are invited.

    I am LDS and I have to agree with Van on this one. I think if Jesus was married that it would’ve been significant enough to early Christians to have made mention of it in their writings. I also agree that it’s possible for Jesus to have been an exception to this case. Although the new testament seems rather vague on marriage being a commandment and everlasting covenant as we find in the church today. But I could be wrong and if any new evidence is discovered that might show Jesus was married then I have no problem admitting my error.

Mormon Doctrine: Mandatory and Forbidden

For various reasons many insist that there is much mandatory doctrine required of Mormons and much forbidden doctrine. Drawing from many sources and such enlightening examples as the Adam God theory and Polygamy, I demonstrate that, from its beginning, the LDS Church has had very little official doctrine and almost no mandatory or forbidden doctrine.
