The Mormon belief in multiple gods, one for each earth or planet, goes against the very nature of the Christian concept on monotheism. While the Mormon Church claims to be a monotheistic religion based on the fact that they only worship the god of this earth and not the countless other gods, the very existence of other gods in Mormon theology flies in the face of Christian belief in one God. If each of us has the ability to become a god, with all the powers of God, then we belittle the nature of God and bring Him down to our level as we try to elevate ourselves to His.
The Mormon Church misinterprets the Bible when it warns us not to worship idols and treat them as gods. When the Bible refers to Satan as the god of this world, it is not raising Satan to God’s level, but rather reducing Satan to the level of an idol, a false god. The Mormon Church falls into the trap of taking verses from the Bible out of their context and treating them as if they could stand alone. In interpreting the Bible it is necessary to take it as a whole and interpret a verse in the context of the whole Bible.
The Bible clearly teaches that there is one God. In Isaiah we find “This is what the LORD says- Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God” Isaiah 44:6, and in Revelation, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” Revelation 22:13. Throughout the Bible teaches there is only one true God. All other gods are false and are to be avoided. “You shall have no other gods before me” Exodus 20:3.
