There is nothing "paradoxical" about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God making his Son into humble carpenter, as well as God calling a simple farm boy to be his chosen prophet in the last dispensation, are perfectly consistent with how he has operated throughout history. God never calls the rich, the powerful, or the proud to be servants in his kingdom. He calls those who come from next to nothing and thus will be humble enough to recognize his hand in all things, instead of taking all the credit for all that they accomplish themselves.

Perhaps this is why Mitt Romney was not allowed to become president of the United States. He comes from wealth and privilege and is disconnected from many of the core teachings of the Gospel. Many of his policies and past statements were directly in contradiction with what General Authorities of the Church have taught. He cared more about the praise of the world than doing what was right in the sight of the Lord.

Remember, this is a man who once denied that revelation has even occurred since Moses. Not someone members of the Church should be looking up to.
