Are there any Christian sects that allow for the existence of other "God" claims? That is, allow for claims that are (semi-)polytheistic in nature. I'm excluding claims that the Trinity is polytheistic for purposes of this question.

I may have just found my answer. It turns out Mormonism allows for the existence of other "Gods" – their afterlife claims include the belief that they become "Gods". Correct me if I'm wrong.

Are there any other Christian sects that allow for multiple "God" claims?

    Why did you wish to exclude the trinity concept? Some see the doctrine of the trinity and Godhead as being polytheistic in nature as well.

  • I only exclude it because I'm more familiar with that discussion. I'm trying to see if there are additional polytheistic concepts I'm unaware of.

  • do you mean like how catholics pray to the virgin Mary and other saints for miracles? Jan 13, 2014 at 5:59
  • @AaronKorn If those saints are considered "Gods" within that framework, than yes. I was under the impression that is not the case but maybe I'm wrong.

I suppose some would consider Unitarian Universalists to be a Christian sect, and they certainly allow for belief in other gods.
