What is the Mormon doctrine regarding becoming a god?
Lorenzo Snow, a prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, stated:
As man is, God once was; as God is, man may become.
I realize that there is a lot of deep theology bound up in that statement (some of which is detailed in this question), however none of the answers to that question really answered my fairly simple question in regards to the quote above.
In what manner may we become like God?
In all manners? Will we be omniscient, omnipotent? Since we are made in God's image, we are already in several ways "like God" (e.g. our ability to create, we have free-will, a conscience, and as the serpent tempted Eve in the garden we have become like God in our knowledge of good and evil).
Is the converse the same? (i.e. the manner in which we may become like God is the same manner that God was once like man?)
As a clarification, I have the image of a worthy individual becoming a god and setting out on his own ("Go west young man!"). What I'm wondering is, if it the more correct understanding is that we become "one in purpose" with the Godhead?
