In this episode, the scions of light wrap up conversation on a topic that an LDS missionary listener named Jeremy asked them to discuss. The doctrine of creation, and whether God created ex materia (from existing materials) or ex nihilo (from nothing), is a key point of departure between Mormonism and Christianity. Here we discuss how it affects other doctrines and practices and dig into some of the Biblical support for creatio ex nihilo. If you're interested in reading some of the discussion of this topic that we had with some latter-day saints, check out these FB threads:
