If there are an infinite number of earths, each with its god or gods as Mormon teaches, then there are an infinite number of gods. Moreover Mormonism teaches that God was not God from all eternity; God was once a man who evolved into Godhood; and there are an endless numbers of “Gods.” How do people become Gods according to Mormons? They believe that all current Gods have attained Godhood through the good works they performed when they were finite. Joseph Smith said “When you climb up a ladder, you must begin at the bottom and ascend step by step, until you arrive at the top; and so it is with the principles of the Gospel – you must being with the first, and go on until you learn all the principles of exaltation [“exaltation” is his term for becoming a God].”

The Mormon student manual, Doctrines of the Gospel, teaches that “God Himself is an exalted man, perfected, enthroned, and supreme.”

Lorenzo Snow, fifth president and prophet of the LDS Church, states: “As man now is, God once was; as God now is, man may be.”

The God of Mormonism is not the God of the Bible. The Bible asserts in the clearest terms that God never changes in terms of His being, essence or attributes – He is immutable. For all eternity God has remained God. God was never originally a man who, incredibly, became God through personal effort. The Bible reads “I the LORD do not change” (Malachi 3:6) and “From everlasting to everlasting you art God” (Psalms 90:2).

“ ‘Inhabitants of the Moon are more of a uniform size than the inhabitants of the Earth, being about 6 feet in height. They dress very much like the Quaker Style & are quite general in Style, or the one fashion of dress. They live to be very old; comeing [sic] generally, near a thousand years.' This is the description of them as given by Joseph the Seer, and he could ‘See' whatever he asked the Father in the name of Jesus to see.” - Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., in Journal of O.B. Huntington, Book 14, p. 166

“In my Patriarchal blessing, given by the father of Joseph the Prophet, in Kirtland, 1837, I was told that I should preach the gospel before I was 21 years of age; that I should preach the gospel to the inhabitants upon the islands of the sea, and – to the inhabitants of the moon, even the planet you can now behold with your eyes.” - O.B. Huntington, The Young Women's Journal, v. 3, pp. 263-264 (1892)

“If [the sun] was made to give light to those who dwell upon it, and to other planets; and so will this earth when it is celestialized. Every planet in the first rude, organic state receives not the glory of God upon it, but is opaque; but when celstialized, every planet that God brings into existence is a body of light, but not till then.” - Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 13, p. 271

“As far back as 1837, I know he [Smith] said the moon was inhabited by men and women the same as this earth, and that they lived to a greater age than we do – that they live generally to near the age of 1000 years. He described the men as averaging near six feet in height, and dressing quite uniformly in something near the Quaker style.” - O.B. Huntington, “The Inhabitants of the Moon,” The Young Woman's Journal, 1892, v. 3, pp. 263-164
