How many Gods are there in the Universe?
In addition to believing that men can become gods, Mormonism teaches an infinite number of gods. Orson Pratt stated:
We were begotten by our Father in Heaven; the person of our Father in Heaven was begotten on a previous heavenly world by His Father; and again, He was begotten by a still more ancient Father and so on, from generation to generation, from one heavenly world to another still more ancient, until our minds are wearied and lost in the multiplicity of generations and successive worlds, and as a last resort, we wonder in our mind, how far back the genealogy extends, and how the first world was formed, and how the first Father was begotten. (Orson Pratt, The Seer, Washington D. C., 1854, p. 132.)
