Eternal Progression; Why God is God – Mormon Quotes

A Rational Theology, pgs. 24-25; Why God is God. To determine this relationship between God and man, it is necessary to know, as far as the limited human mind may know, why the Lord is the supreme intelligent Being in the universe, with the greatest knowledge and the most perfected will, and who, therefore, possesses infinite power over the forces of the universe. It must be admitted at once that the mind of man can know God only in part…the Lord who is a part of the universe, in common with all other parts of the universe is subject to eternal universal laws. In some manner, mysterious to us, he has recognized and utilized the laws of the universe of which he is the chief intelligence. Therefore, if the law of progression be accepted, God must have been engaged from the beginning, and must now be engaged in progressive development…

Revelation 1:8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Uhhh…the Lord is not subject to anything but our horrible behavior and even that is questionable.  He CREATED the laws of the universe and to equate God Almighty to a mere “intelligence” is rather ignorant.

The law of eternal progression is nothing but a bad sci-fi movie gone bad – God does not progress.
