New Witnesses for God, 1:458-459; “…If Jesus Christ, “being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God,” why should it be considered blasphemous to teach that man by faith and righteousness in following the counsels of God, shall at last become like him, and share his power and glory, being a God, even a son of God? …The Prophet Joseph Smith corrected the idea thatGod that now is was always God…“ – B.H. Roberts

Note: The reference above is found on pp 463-464 in the physical hardcopy.

Yesterday we read how LDS apostle Ballard encouraged the young girls of Mormonism to do good deeds for others. That in itself isn’t a bad thing, but using an occult fertility symbol isn’t the mark of true Christianity.

I wrote about this a few years back so we’re reposting it today as a reminder of how the Church falls way short on the scale of godly behavior.

Journal of Discourses 1:57; “The Son is called God, and so is the Father, and in some places the Holy Ghost is called God. They are one in power, in wisdom, in knowledge, and in the inheritance of celestial glory; they are one in their works; they possess all things, and all things are subject to them; they act in unison; and if one has power to become the Father of spirits, so has another; if one God can propagate his species, and raise up spirits after his own image and likeness, and call them his sons and daughters, so can all other Gods that become like him, do the same thing; consequently, there will be many Fathers, and there will be many families, and many sons and daughters; and they will be the children of those glorified, celestial beings that are counted worthy to be Gods.” – Orson Pratt, Great Salt Lake City, August 29, 1852

 General Conference, ‘The Book,’ October 2014; “The leaders did not set the requirements for exaltation. God did!” – Allan F. Packer

Ok, before we look at Mr. Packer’s comment let’s see what Mormons mean by “exaltation”.

The Gospel Principles manual defines exaltation this way:

“Exaltation is eternal life, the kind of life God lives. He lives in great glory. He is perfect. He possesses all knowledge and all wisdom. He is the Father of spirit children. He is a creator. We can become like our Heavenly Father. This is exaltation.”
