How can Jesus Christ be Jehovah God if he is the Son of God? I also believe that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are three separate individuals. I don’t believe that Jesus is God like most churches believe. So, then how can Jesus Christ be Jehovah if God’s name is Jehovah and God’s Son is Jesus Christ?

Hi Samantha. Just to clarify, Mormons do believe that Jesus Christ is God. While our version of the Trinity differs in some ways from that of traditional Christianity, it's not all that different in the end. We believe that God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Ghost work in Perfect Harmony of purpose as one God, which we sometimes called the "Godhead." We do believe that they are physically distinct beings and that they have separate "consciousness, " for lack of a better term, but we worship them collectively as God.

We believe that Jehovah is simply another name for Jesus Christ. Most of the time Mormons simply call God the Father "Heavenly Father." But on the rare occasions when we use Hebrew names to describe the Father and Son, we use "Elohim" to describe the Father rather than "Jehovah." Anyway, these details are really not so important.

The situation is complicated by the fact that, because Jesus Christ and God the Father work in Perfect Harmony, Christ sometimes speaks as if he were the Father. In theological terms, we call this "divine investiture."

I hope this answer helps! All the best.
