Is Jesus a Separate God from the Father?




“I will preach on the plurality of Gods.…I have always declared… Jesus Christ a separate and distinct personage from God the Father, and that the Holy Ghost was a distinct personage and a Spirit: and these three constitute three distinct personages and three Gods.”—Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 1976, p. 370

“When one speaks of God, it is generally the Father who is referred to; that is, Elohim… The personage known as Jehovahis usually identified in the Old Testament as LORD (in capital letters), is the Son, known as Jesus Christ, who is also a God.” —LDS Bible Dictionary, p. 681

Since the LORD Jehovah is Jesus, who is Jehovah’s Son?

“I will declare the decree: the LORD [Jehovah] hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.” —Psalm 2:7

Are God the Father and His Son Jehovah the SAME God?
“…saith the LORD [Jehovah]…understand that I am he: before me there was no God [Elohim] formed, neither shall there be after me… Is there a God [Elohim] beside me? Yea, there is no God [Elohim]; I know not any.” — Isaiah 43:10; 44:8

Since no “God” Elohim was formed BEFORE the “LORD” Jehovah Jesus, how can they be two separate “Gods”?
