When men become god's throughout the universe

Mormonism teaches that God (of this world) was once a man  who became a god. (DoC 130:22) Was once born as a baby on another planet (Church News, Sept,19 1936 p.2 J. F. Smith) died and was resurrected (Gospel Principles p.9), progressed to become a God.

Brigham Young stated “how many Gods there are, I do not know. But there never was a time when there were no Gods and worlds…(JoD vol.7 p.333)

Joseph Smith said we will become gods like all other gods

This Mormon god has a father, a grandfather and a great grandfather (Doctrines of Salvation vol.2 p.47) ad infinitum.

In the Bible the Lord states: "I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me" (Isaiah 43:10). God in the Bible is presented as from everlasting to everlasting.

The Bible

"I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any" (Isaiah 44: 6-8). So if God who is an exalted man as in Mormonism, why does he say he does know of any other God or teach anywhere man progresses to become a god? How is it Mormonism knows there are many gods? There is no Bible teaching of many gods except for the true God to say any other god is false but him.

This LDS god is not the same as the Biblical God. The God of the Bible is not a man, nor was He ever a man before he was God (Numbers 23:19). The God of the Bible is Spirit (John 4:24), who became man once through Jesus Christ. The bible teaches us that the first man was made on the 6th day on earth.

J. Smith, “I wish to declare I have always and in all congregations when I have preached on the subject of deity, it has been on the plurality of Gods…the doctrine of a plurality of Gods is as prominent in the Bible as any other doctrine.” What Smith spoke is true- there are many false gods but there is only one true God

Spencer W. Kimball, the twelfth president of the church, made some revealing comments to those serving in the priesthood: "Brethren, 225,000 of you are here tonight. 1 suppose 225,000 of you may become gods. There seems to be plenty of space out there in the universe.”

Jer. 10:11 says, “the Gods that have not made the heavens or the earth they will perish.” This means all the gods of Mormonism or anyone else who lays claim to his eternal position and nature will be included. Since there is only one God who made the heavens and earth. The ultimate evil to God is to call oneself God, with a big G. or small g. Israel was strictly monotheistic, Mormonism is not (Deut.6:4). What Mormons believe is classified as Henotheism = that there is a head God with multiple lesser Gods. Which has its roots in pagan religions.

Gen. 3:5 "For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." If Eve or Adam were going to be a god there would be no need to tempt them to be like Him. Their fall from believing what the fruit would bring was direct disobedience.

Mormonism is religious tale of spiritual evolution, every bit as false as Darwin's evolution. You have a father and mother in heaven who birthed spirit children who become physical on earth and ascend to become gods on their own planet from obeying the laws of Mormonism. This has no basis in the Bible and should be rejected otherwise one is not living in the Christian faith.
