LDS: It is possible to become a God without the ordinances–think about Jesus

lds jesus

Premise One:

LDS teachings tell us that by obedience to the gospel principles, and by receiving all the ordinances and secrets (I mean, sacred things) in the Temple, we can, after death go to the Celestial Kingdom, where, after millennia of progression, we can become gods in our own right, with our own world, planet, galaxy, or universe in or on which we can carry out the Plan of Salvation for our literal spirit children, and if they obey, they too can become gods.

 

Premise Two:

According to LDS doctrine, Jesus was the God of the Old Testament. (This is frightening, because the God of the Old Testament has all sorts of very bad characteristics, killing literally millions. How many innocents, whose only sin was living in a town with some bad people did he kill in Sodom alone? This is a side issue.)

1 Nephi 19:10 And the God of our fathers, who were led out of Egypt, out of bondage, and also were preserved in the wilderness by him, yea, the God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, yieldeth himself, according to the words of the angel, as a man, into the hands of wicked men, to be lifted up, according to the words of Zenock, and to be crucified, according to the words of Neum, and to be buried in a sepulchre, according to the words of Zenos, which he spake concerning the three days of darkness, which should be a sign given of his death unto those who should inhabit the isles of the sea, more especially given unto those who are of the house of Israel.

At this time, Jesus had never lived in the flesh, so it was impossible for him to have married or been baptized, received the Priesthood or any of the ordinances. He never lived and progressed after his death.

 

Question:

How was he able to be a God?
