Jim Cobabe favored us with:
I agree completely. But I also know that just as matter has always existed, and spirit has always existed, and our intelligences have always existed, so too law has always existed. There are the laws by which God governs us, and there are the laws by which he became God. We become Gods ourselves in exactly the same way that he did: by complying with eternal, uncreated law.I'm honestly not trying to promote Protestant doctrine. But there are obviously some issues here that merit further consideration.I am sure you realize that we are not necessarily covering new ground in any of our discussions on this list. I have little doubt that the people of this world have been striving to learn the true nature of Heavenly Father since Adam was expelled from the Garden. There is much to learn. To complete the task requires an eternity on the job.
I agree that we may not have an inkling of those uncreated laws. For all I know, the laws of chemistry, physics, gravity, Newton, etc. are just created laws. But somewhere there is uncreated law. If not, then there would have been no way for God to create (organize) the universe. He didn't create himself. And he didn't create the matter from which the universe was organized. And when he organized the universe he had to do it in compliance with the uncreated laws of which I speak.

At present, the Book of Mormon is studied in our Sunday
School and seminary classes every fourth year. This
four-year pattern, however, must not be followed by
Church members in their personal and family study. We
need to read daily from the pages of the book that will get
a man "nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by
any other book." (Ezra Taft Benson, October 1988)
