QUESTION:

“Is this the teaching of the church today, that God the Father was once a man like we are?”

GORDON B. HINCKLEY:

“I don’t know that we teach it. I don’t know that we emphasize it. I haven’t heard it discussed for a long time in public discourse. I don’t know. I don’t know all the circumstances under which that statement was made. I understand the philosophical background behind it. But I don’t know a lot about it and I don’t know that others know a lot about it.”
