Are We in the Process of Becoming Gods?
Quite often when we speak about how Mormons aren’t Christians because they believe that they can become gods, people say, “I know a doctor, a dentist, a lawyer whose a Mormon. There is no way these smart people believe this about God.”
While it is true that not every Mormon knows these deeper doctrines of Mormonism, that doesn’t change the fact that this is still the official teaching of the Mormon Church. Mormons are taught that not only was our God just an exalted man, but that all men and women will have the opportunity to become Gods and Goddesses of their own Worlds.
This is still a core belief of Mormonism today. In fact, the Mormon Church has issued an official statement in their “Becoming Like God” Gospel Topic Essay on their Church website that describes how you can become a god.
Now ask, “How can Mormons be considered Christian when they believe they can become gods of their own worlds? Wouldn’t that make multiple gods?”
In Isaiah 44:6, God says, “I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”
In Isaiah 46:9 the LORD says, “I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.”
Paul warns at Galatians 1:7,9: “Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. … If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!” (NIV) With the teaching that you can become a god of your own world, Mormonism completely perverts the gospel of Christ and cannot be considered Christian.
The Mormon Church claims that men can become “Gods” in their official website Gospel Topic Essay entitled “Becoming Like God“.
