This Wikipedia entry states:
In Mormonism, the concept of divinity centers around an idea of "exaltation" and "eternal progression": mortals themselves may become gods and goddesses in the afterlife, be rulers of their own heavenly kingdoms, have spirit children, and increase in power and glory forever.
The book of Genesis describes a temptation that came to Adam from the Serpent, by way of Eve. A forbidden fruit was eaten but the fruit was merely the vehicle for the temptation to "be like God". The temptation was to believe God was holding out on them and to make themselves like God by doing that which God had forbidden.
But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths. - Genesis 3:4-7
If the Wikipedia entry accurately represents Mormon belief, how does LDS theology reconcile this hope of progression to Godhood with the temptation that Adam succumbed to (to be like God) as recorded in the book of Genesis?
