    Can you narrow down your focus? You could be asking about the essence of God, or you could be asking about the characteristics of God.

  • Can you explain to me both, essence an characteristics?

In Wikipedia page, Christian Denomination, we see Mormonism as a Nontrinitarian Denomination. Explaining that:

Mormons see themselves as believing in a Godhead comprising the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost as separate personages united in purpose.

On a separate page, God in Mormonism, explains that The Father in the Godhead is the same Jewish God, Elohim that we know.

Basically, unlike the trinity, most Mormons believe that:

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are not said to be one in substance or essence; instead, they remain three separate beings, or personages, completely united in will and purpose as one God

  • This should explain the Trinity, too, to be a complete answer.

    @CecilBeckum why are you under the impression that it is necessary to upvote a question to answer it? Perhaps the answerer didn't think the question merited an upvote yet still could provide an answer. Mar 26, 2014 at 8:47
