Mormon Goddess: Heavenly Mother in LDS Church

I have never been to a Mormon church, but my Mormon and ex-Mormon friends have said the Heavenly Mother is hush-hush, even poo-poohed in LDS. They don’t talk about her. Might give the women and girls too much self esteem, maybe? I don’t know…

Here is a good cover of the Mormon Goddess, including an article by our now-gone-silent ol’ buddy, ol’ pal, “Oiled Lamp” aka Amber Satterwhite (now Adams).

  1. Mormons consider the “Heavenly Mother” too sacred to speak of, just look how Jesus’s name is used.

  2. Fascinating! On Trinity Sunday this year, our minister read from Proverbs regarding Sophia and called her the “divine feminine of the Godhead.” I was amazed. Now I find this. Super stuff. I am not afraid anymore to acknowledge the Goddess! Thank you for that!

  3. G-d is both universal father and divine mother and you can refer to it as, Yahweh and the Shekinah, which is Asherah, Ishtar or Isis.

    G-d is androgynouys and so is Adan his and her creation even the Arabic name of Allah is the Hebrew contraction of El (G-d) and Elah (Goddess).

    In the biblica account the serpent of the garden of eden is none other than the Sumerian g-d Enki (Heaven and Earth) whose wisdom is inherited through the mitochondria DNA of the divine feimine unlike the g-d of the Jews, Enlil, which becomes the new g-d of earth and the g-d of the Hebrew patriarchs and that of the Christians.

  4. I hope to help with the understanding of Heavenly Mother. In no way is She pooh poohed or hush hushed. She is reverenced. She is our Mother. Look at the way our first mother on earth is treated. The oldest profession is not scriptural but Eve is treated like a joke where she should also be reverenced.

    Mormons try to be careful with sacred things and that sometimes leads to misunderstanding, but the intention is to be respectful and loving and reverent. Hope this helps.
