What Kind of Being Is God?

Because we are made in his image (see Moses 6:9), we know that God has a body that looks like ours. His eternal spirit is housed in a tangible body of flesh and bones (see D&C 130:22). God's body, however, is perfected and glorified, with a glory beyond all description.

God is perfect. He is a God of love, mercy, charity, truth, power, faith, knowledge, and judgment. He has all power. He knows all things. He is full of goodness.

All good things come from God. Everything that he does is to help his children become like him---a god. He has said, "Behold, this is my work and my glory---to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man"(Moses 1:39).

Anything controversial here? I don't think so. And yet we are the only Church upon the earth that teaches this most basic and fundamental truth about God, that he is an actual, physical being, as tangible as man is. How can anyone know anything about God that is correct if he doesn't understand the most basic fundamental truth about him? Religion may not be the same as mathematics, but one has to get the most basic fundamentals right if he want to understand anything else. Wouldn't you agree?
