Answers to a critic

One of my LDS critics writes,

“Why should we care who would win an arm wrestling match between cosmic deities? There is no reason to compare them and pit them against each other. They are all “most high.””

Answer:

“For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.” (Psalm 95:3)

“For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.” (Psalm 97:9)

Mainstream Mormonism (SLC-based sect) can’t say that about its god.

She also writes,

“If you say that there isn’t good and evil outside of God, then you are acknowledging that God is the author of evil.”

Answer: In the mainstream LDS framework none of the gods are the author of good or evil. They just re-arrange stuff from the universal sandbox.

In the classical Christian view, everything God created was good, and then it was perverted to be evil.

Evil is a perversion of goodness, and goodness is grounded in God.
