There is strong evidence that early Christians also shared this view of Christ as the Jehovah of the Old Testament, as I discuss more fully on my page about " Questions on Relationships Between God, Man, and Others ." For example, non-LDS scholar Margaret Barker recognizes the "overwhelming" evidence that early Christians identified Christ with Jehovah in the Old Testament, and in doing so, addresses the issue of how they understood Deut. 6:4. The following excerpt is taken from her book, The Great Angel: A Study of Israel's Second God (London: SPCK, 1992, pp. 192-193, as cited by Kevin Christensen, Paradigms Regained: A Survey of Margaret Barker's Scholarship and Its Significance for Mormon Studies , FARMS Occasional Papers (Provo: FARMS, 2001), pp. 24-25):
An Essay on Criticism is one of the first major poems written by the English writer Alexander Pope (1688–1744). It is the source of the famous quotations "To err is human, to forgive divine," "A little learning is a dang'rous thing" (frequently misquoted as "A little knowledge is a dang'rous thing"), and "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread." It first appeared in 1711  after having been written in 1709, and it is clear from Pope's correspondence  that many of the poem's ideas had existed in prose form since at least 1706. Composed in heroic couplets (pairs of adjacent rhyming lines of iambic pentameter ) and written in the Horatian mode of satire, it is a verse essay primarily concerned with how writers and critics behave in the new literary commerce of Pope's contemporary age. The poem covers a range of good criticism and advice, and represents many of the chief literary ideals of Pope's age.
Conceivably, for pastoral reasons the Church may choose to allow variant readings for the Sacrament of Marriage as it does for burial rites. Certain other traditional readings could be sanctioned as long as this does not deteriorate into a random exercise of whim. Perhaps an even better solution for today would be the traditional variant of the standard Ephesians text without verse 33 which today is subject to misinterpretation. Besides, we must be faithful to incarnational theology and to the nature of the Church as a divine-human institution. This means that the Church in its pilgrimage to the Kingdom exists in history. Therefore, its liturgical expressions are subject to careful change within the context of the consciousness of the entire Church body.
