As a mormon, I had no problem with that notion. If the church was true, and who was I to argue that point, then what it was teaching had to be the truth..., like "day follows night," "et tu, uber lyft," and "hipso fatso, fartso."
But at the same time, I had no problem giving up the Celestial Kingdom, later, for orgasms, now!
When I stopped believing in the inerrancy of the church in general, and the prophet, in particular, it opened up many so many more whores to me than had I stayed a believer ... although there is a reason Kirton, McConkie & Poelman had to change their name to Kirton-McConkie ...
And another thing — this Elohim clearly isn't "God" in the sense of an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent intelligence, but instead is a once mortal alien who was an interstellar Mormon on whatever planet he originally came from and granted godlike powers and given his own planet to rule as a reward — and is just one of many such "gods" who have similarly been elevated.

I raised a son, and he wasn't him for years. Like all of us, he's the product of genetics and environment. He didn't exist as a complete personality at first. The pre-life notion violates my understanding of life. The believers so desperately don't want to die that they deny death. The only thing that we're guaranteed, and they refuse to accept it.
