Our understanding is not the same but we can still enjoy freedom of religion, so even though I make an attempt to explain how our understanding differs, its not meant to offend.

I believe the Godhead is made up of three separate beings: God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. They function as one God, but each is a separate being with purpose. The Holy Ghost is spirit, therefore it can dwell in our heart. It is documented in the scriptures that Jesus was born, died, and three days later rose from the dead. http://scriptures.lds.org/john/20/17#17 http://scriptures.lds.org/tgj/jcscnsnf
He visited his friends and family and many witnessed, and when he had to leave he promised to return again some day in like manner.

It is good to have belief, but better yet to have understanding. One purpose of the Bible is to provide real evidence and witnesses that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. If that is not enough, the Book of Mormon is a second witness of the divinity and reality of Christ.

I have chosen to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and that the Holy Ghost can dwell in our hearts. We can feel close to Christ whenever we think of Him, and also to our Father in Heaven when we pray. I choose to feel close to the Godhead and appreciate their separate roles, even though they are one in purpose. The Holy Ghost to witness and testify to my soul of the truth about God, Jesus to be my mediator and advocate to the Father, and who atoned for my sins as I repent and come unto Him, and my Eternal Father in Heaven, whose side I left to come to earth. Family is eternal and our origin is divine.

Our belief is quite a bit different, then LDS is different than Christian too, even though we are Christian as well. When Christ returns we will all know about it, but until then, we may choose how we think of Him. Does it matter? Perhaps this is one of those "real" things that does.

Thanks for posting. Otherwise I might very well think I am just writing back and forth to myself, which is in reality what I am doing. Heck, I just like to write. And I like to think and express things my own way. Hope you don't mind.
