problem of the one and the many


Explain this:
(1) The Son and the Father have in common certain properties of the kind K.
(2) All beings who have properties of the kind K belong to the class of beings we refer to as Gods.
(3) Therefore the Son and the Father belong to the class of things we refer to as Gods.

Single Supreme Member of the class God?

The Divine Thou

In Mormonism Gods are fully 'other' unlike traditional christian thought. Explain this.
