We have to remember, that The Book of Revelation is full of symbols, and it has to be understood in the context of Christian teaching about the end of the world. It was unofficially started by numerous sympathetic Christians who decided to send funds to the Evangelical Alliance who sent gifts of money, clothing and food to refugees all around the world. The LDS Church teaches that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are three separate and distinct beings, the Father and Son having perfected physical bodies and the Holy Ghost having only a body of spirit. [21] While the three beings are physically distinct, in Mormon theology they are one in thoughts, actions, and purpose and commonly referred to collectively as "one God" or the "Godhead". [22] [23] Also, Mormonism teaches that God the Father is the literal father of the spirits of all men and women, which existed prior to their mortal existence. [24] The LDS Church also believes that a Heavenly Mother exists. [25] [26] Further, it is believed that all humans as children of God can become exalted, inheriting all that God has, as joint-heirs with Christ, and becoming like him as a God. [27] Mormonism describes itself as falling within world Christianity, but as a distinct restored dispensation; it characterizes itself as the only true form of the Christian religion since the time of a Great Apostasy that began not long after the ascension of Jesus Christ. [28] According to Mormons this Apostasy involved the corruption of the pure, original Christian doctrine with Greek and other philosophies, [29] and followers dividing into different ideological groups. [30] Additionally, Mormons claim the martyrdom of the Apostles led to the loss of Priesthood authority to administer the Church and its ordinances. [31] [32] Mormons believe that God re-established the early Christian Church as found in the New Testament through Joseph Smith. [33] In particular, Mormons believe that angels such as Peter, James, John, and John the Baptist appeared to Joseph Smith and others and bestowed various Priesthood authorities on them. [34] Mormons thus believe that their Church is the "only true and living church" because divine authority was restored to it through Smith.
