Month 9: His Light
“Ye are all the children of light”

WEEK 33: INTELLIGENCE

Many Christians believe in a pre-earth life where there was one spirit, the firstborn spirit of the Father, who was “more intelligent than them all.” Some theologians interpret this to mean that Christ was (and is) more intelligent than all the others – more intelligent than the combined intelligence of all the rest of God’s children.

This one great Being understood the nature of us, his brothers and sister, so well, and he understood the mind and will of his Father so well, that he was able to be the pre-mortal advocate of the Father’s great plan of agency, choice, and atonement.

Further, his intelligence was (and is) supreme, so that he was (and is) able to implement that plan.

Still further, his intelligence is complete, so that it literally lights the world, penetrating with its brightness the depths of earth and opening men’s minds to scientific discovery, to artistic sense, to spiritual truth.

Even the world’s secular history demonstrates the light of Christ and reveals the particular periods when his light was accepted by man in its greatest abundance. Because of the seeking nature of men, the door of the Dark Ages was opened a crack, and rays of light poured froth and sparked the mind-opening periods of Renaissance and Reformation. Then, as truth and insight were restored, the door was flung wide, and we entered a period that represents only 3 percent of mankind’s history yet contains perhaps 97 percent of his inventions and discoveries.

Christ’s intelligence lights the world. It was and is the source of man’s clearest insights. It was gained by our Savior though and eternity of excellence, and he now uses that intelligence to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of you and me.
