Mormons: What did it mean for the Father to be “Christlike” when he was a mere mortal on another planet? Was he imitating his own Messiah? Was he full of the “light of Christ”, i.e. the light of his own particular Messiah? Assuming the Father taught our Jesus to be “Christlike”, doesn’t that mean that the Father was teaching our Jesus to be like another Christ that the Father once submitted to as his Savior and Lord?
Wouldn’t all this mean that our Jesus Christ is imitating the kind person that potentially billions of other Christs act like on other worlds? If our Jesus is one of potentially billions of other Christs among other worlds, then when we say someone is “Christ-like”, doesn’t that also mean that he is conforming to a pattern that billions of other Christs have followed?
