I know we have an occasional Mormon/LDS on this board. Perhaps I haven’t looked hard enough, but I’ve never seen a Mormon try to square their doctrine of eternal progression of the gods with the several immutable-God, monotheistic passage in Mormon scripture:
ALMA 11:28. Now Zeezrom said: Is there more than one God?
ALMA 11:29. And he answered, No.
ALMA 11:30. Now Zeezrom said unto him again: How knowest thou these things?
ALMA 11:31. And he said: An angel hath made them known unto me.
From Catholic Answers Tract:
"The next time you speak with Mormon missionaries, cite these verses:
“I know that God is not a partial God, neither a changeable being; but he is unchangeable from all eternity to all eternity” (Moroni 8:18).
“For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today and forever, and in him there is no variableness, neither shadow of changing? And now, if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who doth vary, and in whom there is shadow of changing, then ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who is not a God of miracles” (Mormon 9:9-10).
It’s hard to be more explicit than that. In his early years Smith did not believe in the “law of eternal progression.” He had an orthodox understanding of God’s immutable nature. But at some point in his theological odyssey, he veered into the land of doublethink."
