This was from another thread. I started a new one, so as to not hijack the old one.
One of the original questions:
Do Mormons believe that God was once a man like us?
That has been taught in the past, but it has no scriptural foundation, and is no longer considered a valid doctrine of the LDS Church.
If this isn’t the case, how can one put any faith in such a group? How can you know that what you are being taught now, won’t be an “invalid doctrine” 20 years down the road?
Some will try to equate it to the outcomes of Vatican II, saying that eating Meat on Fridays is no longer considered a mortal sin. However this is completely different. That was not a deposit of faith. Other Catholics, please correct me if I’m wrong.
