Mormonism’s relationship to the creeds and philosophies of conventional Christianity is not simple reversal:
The restored gospel or Mormonism should not, therefore, be seen as a set of symmetrical counter-claims to mainstream classical theology regarding the Omni-God and creation from nothing; rather Mormonism is a re-centring of Christianity away from these knowledge claims.
A re-centring of Christianity such that such matters are no longer at or near the centre of the faith; and instead a different focus on God conceptualized in a common sense and person-like, and Fatherly, and human-relational way – as being sufficient, less hazardous, more helpful, more accessible, more honest basis for the Christian faith and life – closer to the model of scripture including the teachings of Jesus.
