comment Since Mormonism allows for humans to become gods in the afterlife, does this mean it is polytheistic?
"Then will they become Gods...they will never cease to increase and to multiply, worlds without end. When they receive their crowns, their dominions, they then will be prepared to frame earths like unto ours and to people them in the same manner as we have been brought forth by our parents, by our Father and God” Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 17:143

This partly explains the confusion: "Each one of you has it within the realm of his possibility to develop a kingdom over which you will preside as its king and god. You will need to develop yourself and grow in ability and power and worthiness, to govern such a world with all of its people." (“. . . the Matter of Marriage” [address delivered at University of Utah Institute of Religion, 22 Oct. 1976], 2).

@Matt I think my ex-mormon peer was so startled by the entire thing, that he decided to leave.

I was speaking to an ex-mormon form Utah but perhaps I mischaracterized it or misunderstood.

comment Does the New Testament have any mention of Kolob and if not, how come?
"The compilers of the New Testament were obviously not concerned with revealing the deepest mysteries of God, but rather, were focused on documenting the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and His Apostles." How did you arrive at this conclusion that the compilers of the New Testament were not concerned with revealing deepest mysteries of"god"? On what basis do you make this claim?

Thanks for the comments here. However I don't understand why you don't formally answer instead.

comment Do Jehovah's Witnesses believe that their “Governing body” will rule the world after “Armageddon”?
To my understanding, having spoken to many Witnesses, there is a heirarchy because the governing body IS unelected and dictates what literature and rules elders and followers must follow.

So the hierarchy they support now will no longer exist in this hypothetical scenario? No Witness will have leadership over another?

An ex-Witness told me. So I'm trying to see if that's true.
