“… God must have been engaged from the beginning, and must now be engaged in progressive development, and, infinite as God is, he must have been less powerful in the past than he is today … 

“We may be certain that, through self-effort, the inherent and innate powers of God have been developed to a God-like degree. Thus, he has become God.”

John A. Widtsoe, A Rational Theology (Salt Lake City, UT: Deseret Book Co., 1915), 24-25.
