These works are as problematic as the Book of Mormon is. They share the latter's dubious origin, and have been subjected to the same kind of revisionist editing. In addition, the key points of Mormon doctrine regarding God taught in these books are absent from - or contradicted by - both the Bible and the Book of Mormon
Mormons do not find their doctrines about God in the Bible or the Book of Mormon. Their severest doctrinal deviations come from Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price. The "most correct of any book upon the earth", as Joseph Smith called the Book of Mormon, contradicts Mormonism. So does the Bible.
[W]hen Mormons claim that they believe in the biblical God what they mean is that the Bible teaches the Mormon concept of God. Further, because of its alleged apostacy, Christianity lost the true teaching of God and therefore the historic Christian doctrine of God is not truly biblical. This leaves Mormons free to concede that their concept of deity is contrary to traditional Christian faith. And this they do. William O. Nelson, Director of the Melchizedek Priesthood Department, agrees, "Some who write anti-mormon pamplets insist that the Latter-day Saint concept of Deity is contrary to what is recognized as traditional Christian doctrine. In this they are quite correct." So the real issue is to ascertain the true biblical teaching on the nature of God.
